I decided to make a Mixbook for my parents of photos of the family.  I put in some inside jokes and funny pictures along with a nice poem I found online. Here's a few sample pictures:

The poem reads:

You taught me that God's there through it all
I was your first, I made you a proud Mom and Dad
Now we look at the good and bad times that we had
You always told me to lead a good life
Well now I'm going to be a wife
You weren't ready for this day to come
Now I ask that you'll love him like a son
On this day as Daddy walked me down the aisle
I looked at you Mom and remember that I have your lovely smile
People used to tell me that I looked like you
And I was always trying to prove it wasn't true
But now as I look back, I'm happy
For you helped build the woman in me
You taught me that beauty is on the inside
Well someone saw that beauty and took me as a bride
So I thank you both on this special day
And I hope you accept my loving husband
Because he loves your daughter in every way

Our flutes.  My future aunt gave these to us for Christmas.  I about died when I saw these!  They are absolutely gorgeous!  The picture does them no justice!

Our Knife Set.  I found these at Party City for $20.  They aren't the most fantabulous... but I like them and they'll do.  :-)

Bridal Photos.  My photographer is awesome!  He sent me these two pictures right away!  I got the frames for them at Hobby Lobby when they were having their 50% off all frames sale, so I only spent about $25 for both frames!  Score!

Our Ring Pillow.  Since my order for the bridesmaids clutches took a little longer than expected, the seller made me a *free* ring pillow.  It's super adorable!

Other stuff photo 6

Parents Photos.  I decided to print out pictures from each of our parents' weddings and put them on the guestbook table.  That way our guests not only get to see my bridals and sign our "guestbook", but they get to see our parents on their wedding day as well.  I thought it would be a nice little way to honor our parents.  I was able to find these frames also at Hobby Lobby during their 50% off sale!
