    I think the books sound cool, but maybe the birdcages are too much unless you could find smaller ones.  What is the eye spy game?  


    I was thinking how weird it would be to get married at a plantation, given that the history of them is sort of horrible…but then I realized that I chose to get married at a mansion in New Hampshire that was built in 1784, and that the guy who built it was a triangular trade merchant.  So it’s sort of the same thing.  Sigh.

    Sounds good (I have a lot more on my tables!).  I think that disposable cameras are getting dated though. (and costly if few people end up using them)  Instead I set up a flickr site that my guests can log onto and upload their photos to and just having the cards on the tables for people to grab.

    I think it depends on how big the tables are.  Maybe instead of a little book, you could put the facts about the mansion on the back of the I spy game.

    @ShutterbugCait:  Or combine the Williamsburg facts into the eye-spy.  For example: find something that GW once touched…lame, but hopefully you get the idea.  Colonial Williamsburg has a cool spy game called RevQuest that they started last summer- maybe check that out to get some ideas.

    I grew up a few minutes from Williamsburg so I think its awesome you’re having your wedding there.

    Or you could do the eye spy game with emotions, or facial expressions…that could be interesting!


    I’ve never been to Williamsburg but my hometown has a similar colonial village…not as big or as famous…but about ten years older!

    You could use the Ikea Tolsby frame and place the facts about the plantation on one side and the I spy game on the other.

    @ShutterbugCait:  Instead of putting the disposable cameras on the tables, could you make a basket with them and put it in a central location? That’d clear up the tables a bit and hopefully let people use them that really want to take pictures.

    I would scrap either putting the I spy game, or the info books ON the tables. That’s too many “activities” imo. I’d maybe put their actual book on the guest book table or something like that for people to flip through
