I think it would be fun for a group that is really close. If everyone isn’t super close, I think it might be a little…harder? But overall, I like the idea.

I think it’s quite sweet. As long as its optional rather than mandatory, I don’t think guests would have an issue with it, especially since they don’t have to spend loads of money on it.

I think it’s a great idea. As long as you provide a few examples, everyone should be able to come up with a memento or a memory.

I think it’s super cute. Nothing wrong with asking people to participate in something cute for the bride. I ask people to bring recipes for recipe boxes all the time

@southsun:  It’s a great idea, so long as all the invited guests actually have specific memories about the bride they can put in the box. Some showers have a pretty extended group of people in attendance.  If it’s the kind of party where work friends or friends of the FMIL are invited, it might not be appropriate to ask.

I’d also wonder how it would work in a bag. Taking home a bag of loose pieces of paper might see some of them get crumpled.
