Best idea ever: in the bridal shower invites, include a recipe card for each guest to fill out. A great way to start your recipe collection! I've said I wanted to do this for years! Kerr Mitchell maybe include request or recipe card with invitations?
Groomsmen gift idea - Etched glasses with their monogram filled with a mini bottle of each groomsman's favorite alcohol. Give to each groomsmen as a gift from the bride the day of the wedding, and attach a personalized note to the bottle.
For bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, etc. Have the Maid of Honor write the gift giver's name on a label and stick it on the box right after it's opened. Like this idea so they are not writing non-stop and they can enjoy!
