I would love to have a wedding time capsule at our wedding where guests can predict our future….in 5 years and 10 years. I think it would be a lot of fun for our family/friends and would be something fun to "open" in the future.
I need some help with questions though….
The only good question I can think of so far is:
1. How many kids will we have?
I am lacking in the creativity department so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks so much!

You could ask where do you think the couple will live? (makes more sense if you havent grown up in the same area together)
What do you think will be their biggest accomplishment?
When do you think they will buy their next house?
This is a tough one!

That’s a super creative idea! How about:
– How often will we watch our wedding video and/or look at our wedding album?
– Which of our siblings will be the next to get married?
– How many pets will we have?
– Where will we be living?
– What kind of jobs will we have? (or any other career type question)
– What will be the gender mix of our kids?
– Who will our kids look like?
– What will we name our kids?
– Who will be the disciplinarian and who will be the softee when it comes to parenting?
You can also tailor it to any specific interests you guys might have, like travelling or running. It would be fun to have questions like "How many vacations have we taken and where did we go?" or "How many marathons have we completed?" Something like that.
Have fun and good luck! 🙂

What a fun idea!! How about some of these?
– Who will have more grey hair and why?
– What will our jobs be?
– Where will we live?
– How will we be celebrating our anniversary?
– How many kids will we have?
I also like the idea of asking personalized questions. My fiancee collects watches and wine, so we might ask, "How many bottles of Merlot (his least favorite) will FH have had?" or "How many watches will [he] have added to his collection?" That sort of thing would be fun, especially if you had a little blurb with each question, so you’re telling your guests a little about the two of you while asking the questions. Something like, "We’ve lived in Atlanta, Florida, Greenville, Washington DC, and France. Where will we be living in 10 years?"
Again, great idea!

I think it would fun to include some stuff like "What was your favorite part of our wedding?" or "What’s your favorite memory about the bride & groom?" That would give you some fun stuff to look back on and remember years later. 🙂

I second the above. Wouldn’t it be nice to look back in 10 years and not only remember what a nice time you had, but also the fun your guests had and all the love that surrounded you?

This is a great idea, I might have to steal it if I can convince my FH to participate…
I’m thinking it might be fun to answer questions and include information about your lives right now, such as your typical weekend (before marriage and kids), favorite songs, TV shows, etc.
Maybe throw in a newspaper from your wedding day?

ooohhh this is a good idea! I may have to steal this idea from you

Cute idea!! I’m shamelessly stealing it!! What do you do with the answers? If you read them will it skew your opinions?? Like if someone wrote they thought you’d name a boy "Gerald" would you?? I don’t know that I could do this without reading all of them on the honeymoon!!!

I love this idea! I was going to suggest:
When will our first child be born?
What gender will out children be?
How will we spend our ten year anniversary?
…I think my others were already mentioned.
Do you mind sharing details about your time capsule? Like, what will it physically be like (Are you using a special container), and where will you keep it? Also, are you having guests complete the questions in your guestbook?
