The only thing I can really help you with is the bubbles…. because don’t you think that people will know what to do with them?  At least where I’m from, bubbles aren’t that groundbreaking and your guests will know why you have them.  You probably don’t need to worry about this!

Don’t know if this helps but for my photo sign-in book, I had this sign sign next to it which I stole from another bride (sorry, I didnt’ keep the address to give credit to this bride): 

Sign a message,

leave a note,

so we’ll always remember

what you wrote.

Also, next to the placecards I had this sign, again stolen from another bride:

Glad you came…  before you meet and greet

find your place card so you can find your seat.

Don’t worry about feeling like you have to spell out everything.  Some people just forget, so I think it’s good to have the reminder.  I went to a wedding where everyone had petals on their chair and no one threw them.  It’s not their fault, they were just caught up in the moment.  If you don’t feel like having notes, ask some of the servers or parents to remind the guests.  If someone sees your parents blowing the bubbles, signing the guest book, ect… they will follow.  Otherwise leaving out a simple note is always good.

 I like your trivia idea.  What about having something like this at your table for your guests while they wait to get their food?  They could quiz eachother and see who knows the most about you guys?  You could put it on the back of your menu’s or programs… or just have it lying out on the table by the centerpeice.

Just an idea – good luck!  I am sure it will be great either way because you are taking the time to think of all these cool ideas!

I think labeling the bubbles is a great idea… at two of the weddings I attended noone knew when they were supposed to blow them so at one they didn’t blow them at all and at the other they did it during the vows… so annoying.

I would suggest, "As the new Mr. and Mrs. walk back down the aisle… please shower them with love and BUBBLES."

I think telling people when to use the bubbles is key. VYeta’s wording suggestion is great, or you could have a good friend stationed at the table to make sure people pick them up and let them know when to use them.

As for the jar for the tips, etc., we’ll be doing the same thing in tree form (people will tie their cards to the wish tree). I’m going to make cards with "Wishes & Words" printed at the top (or Gocco-ed, if I ever bite the bullet and buy one instead of just stalking them on ebay) and a sign that says something like "Please take a moment to share your Well-Wishes and Words of Wisdom with the new couple." (Yeah, I a sucker for alliteration )

Good luck!

As for the bubbles, if you have a wedding coordinator or an usher they could explain it to the guests as they are seated. But if all else fails, I’m sure your photographer will re-stage you after the wedding, in which case you can walk down the aisle and have your bridesmaids and groomsmen blow bubbles for pictures.

I was a very detail-oriented bride as well and after the wedding I wondered why I even went through all the trouble. I wouldn’t mess with the guest book, personally. Don’t be disappointed if people don’t notice everything, and don’t make yourself crazy with putting it all together, either. I think it will be a beautiful wedding!
