WE had a few favors….We had personalized hersheys kisses and bars; personalized bubbles; for the ladies we gave out a lenox sunflower candy bowl; and for the men, since my honey is such a hockey freak, we gave out regulation hockey pucks that read "we scored" our names and our wedding date. His friends got a kick out of that.

We’ve managed to get a sort of DIY photobooth into our wedding. The photobooth has several elements:
- Providing entertainment for guests
- Providing favors for guests
- Giving us a unique guestbook
- Giving us digital pictures of most or all of our guests that we can share online and/or use in our photo album
The way it will work is that in one area of our reception venue, we will have the following (for 80-100 guests):
We have a bunch of friends who have offered to help out at the reception. We will therefore have each of them working the photo area on a different shift, so that no one ends up having to work for the whole party.
<div style=”display: block; text-align: center; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto”>
As each guest arrives at the photo area, the friend on duty will take that person’s picture. He or she will then attach the camera to the printer, and print out two wallet-sized photos. The guest will then have a choice of 1) a place card frame (see picture, above) that can be used as a photo frame, 2) a bookmark, or 3) a magnet . If the guest chooses the bookmark, it will be made by attaching the photo to the bookmark insert with double-sided tape, putting the insert inside the sleeve, and adding a tassel to one end. If the guest chooses the magnet or the picture frame, the photo will be put into the appropriate frame.
The second photo will be put into the guestbook. The guest will then sign the page of the guestbook that has his or her photo on it.
The photo from the memory card will then be copied onto our laptop computer, so we can use it in creating our photo album and/or to share photos online with our friends.
