Rehearsal Dinner "Packets" -- Bride/groom madlibs, wedding schedule for everyone, list of phone numbers the wedding party might need the day of, etc. - I especially like the list of phone numbers idea!
Having empty chairs across from the bride and groom is a Scandinavian tradition. Guests are invited to come and chat with the bride and groom. This way the newlyweds can actually sit and enjoy the meal, and the guests can say hello.
Great Idea as a Wedding Favor or an Anniversary Party Favor! Give Your or You & Your Spouse's Favorite Book as Favors. Wrap in Brown Paper and add Library Card (templates) for the Gift Tags! Can be given as a Great Gift too!
Go to a thrift store and find the worst bridesmaids dress you can find. Then play paintball for a combined bachelorette and bachelor party.I just like the idea of going out in the worst bridesmaid dress!
