My sister did this for our mom’s birthday.  Mom was feeling down because of some family stuff not going well so my sister asked Dad, me, Mom’s siblings, friends and acquaintances to send two happy thoughts about Mom, which she printed out on nice cards and put into a pretty box.  Mom said it made her feel great.

At our wedding, Mom had wedding advice emails from people who couldn’t attend and read them aloud, which was really sweet!

When my fiance was a few weeks away from coming home from his first Navy deployment, I asked all his friends and family to write something (if they wanted to) to welcome him home. I would be the only person there when he got home, partly because they all live out of town and partly because he wanted to spend the first day or two with just me. His parents were awesome about sending the request out to people I’ve never even met, and I got a ton of responses. His parents even forwarded a picture of my fiance welcoming HIS dad home from Desert Storm as a kid. I compiled them all into a notebook that I ordered from Zazzle.com (you can customize the cover) and gave it to him the day he got home. It was the only time I have ever seen him cry, so I think it went over pretty well.

I never thought about using the idea in a wedding or different format, but I can say from personal experience, it is a great idea!
