Some Fun Twists (Reception Ideas)

We're going to have a couple of different ideas incorporated into our wedding day; instead of having a guest book that I feel would be stored away and never really looked at very much, we're going to have a picture frame (plain white cardboard) at every table for the guests to sign -Ross's idea was to have the photographer take a picture of each table so not only would we have a keepsake we'd also have a picture of everyone!

We are going to have vintage looking pictures frames similar to this one for our table numbers -the table linen is white so the black will really stand out. We're also not doing numbers but rather we're going to incorporate Ross's favourite sport -golf- by naming each table after one of Ross's favourite golf courses that are on his "bucket list" to play.  

                            

                                               Table Names:                                          

                                               *Pebble Beach

                                               *St. Andrews -Old Course

                                               *Augusta National

                                               *Carnoustie                      

                                               *Pinehearst #2

                                               *Turnberry

                                               *Torrey Pines                                       

                                               *Royal Troon                                                          

Another of Ross's ideas (I'm telling you, it's not just looks I'm marrying ;) is to have a cute stuffed bear (a "me to you" bear) which is huge in England sat on a table -no one will know what it's for- until the best man's speech: he'll tell everyone to look on the inside of their placecards where they'll be a name in each one. A few days before the wedding we'll get someone impartial to randomly pick a name from a pre-made list, write it down and put it in an envelope. The best man will open it up and announce the name and whoever has that name wins the bear -and it's soooo cute!
