  1. I love all of these ideas! Who would have thought to have a Price is Right wheel or life-size Jenga to keep guests entertained?! I will definitely keep these in mind and come back to this when I plan my wedding! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  3. I got married in WV last September. I did Mad Lib guest cards in lieu of a guest book and I think that turned out really well. But I like the pinata idea and the cootie catcher idea too. We did gift bags that included hangover helpers (Emergen-C, water, advil) as well as WV famous pepperoni rolls and some other treats. I also did the "No Ugly Crying" handkerchiefs for my mom and bridesmaids, but I was so hungover the morning of the wedding (crazy rehearsal dinner party! good thing I bought all that hangover sutff), I forgot to hand them out :-/ They didn't get them till after the reception, lol.

    I really love the Price is Right wheel!

  5. I love these ideas! Having an artist paint the ceremony is amazing! Another great idea for the reception is a bandeoke band. We had these guys. http://www.warble-entertainment.com/hire/the-warble-bandeoke-band/1020/ They really brought everyone together so much and I don't think I've laughed as much ever in my life. Great article though, thank you Dee x
