Wedding planning tip: Use an invisible ink pen to write guest names on the back of RSVP cards. If you get an RSVP card back with no name, use a black light to see who it's from. No more wondering whose it is!
"One of my favorite shower gifts was from my mom. She sent out blank recipe cards out to friends and family with addressed& postage paid envelopes asking them to send me their favorite recipes to start my own collection. For weeks I received all these great letters in the mail with recipes and stories and then my mom gave me this great album at the shower to hold all my recipes. I have the most meaningful and fun cookbook ever! :)"
Take a picture of exactly how something is supposed to look (i.e. centerpieces, place sttings, candy buffett, etc.) then place it on the container that has all the pieces inside it. That way whoever is setting it up has no questions and knows exactly what the end product should look like.
