There are at least two times in your life when you’ll probably receive a good deal of advice. That’s when you’re getting married and when you’re expecting your first child. Collecting well wishes or advice cards filled out by your guests at your wedding can be a fun alternative to the usual guest book, and can give you souvenirs that you’ll treasure for years to come.
Most of your guests will probably have no problem coming up with enough comments to fill a card, but if anyone is stumped, there are plenty of good ideas for things to say. Some helpful input could include date night ideas, romantic advice, and suggestions for how to stay happy and healthy. Of course, simple messages of congratulations and best wishes are always appreciated too.
You can buy pre-printed cards, but it may be fun to make your own or at least design them if you have the time. Giving them a personal touch like including a photo of yourselves or a favorite personal saying will add to the fun.
Cards with mostly blank space are one option if you’re open to hearing anything your guests might like to say. On the other hand, some couples like the version with a different specific question on each card so you can cover every topic you might be wondering about, and don’t get too many date ideas and not enough relationship advice or vice versa. Specific questions can also help you get more interesting input if you have guests who are inclined to play it safe and stick to generic messages. On the other hand, your most interesting guests probably won’t let a little thing like a specific question get in the way of sharing anything they find compelling.
