We all know the traditional guest book table at weddings. But what if, instead of just ‘signing in,’ guests leave personal words of wisdom (and even amusing tips!) on marriage for the newlyweds? So much more meaningful and special, don’t you think! And here, we share 6 creative ways to set up a wedding advice table to suit your personal style and your chosen theme.
Ideas for Setting Up a Wedding Advice Table
A ‘tip jar’ – A fun play on the usual tip jar at restaurants, this idea can be tweaked to invite guests to leave ‘marriage tips’ instead! Dress it up with a shabby chic framed sign (1) or use a colored mason jar (2) atop a graceful vintage table.
Candle glow – For sunset or evening weddings, see how a few votive candles (3) can really enhance the mood. So romantic for a beach destination wedding!
Quaint containers – Vintage suitcases (4, 6) make perfect display holders for your wedding advice cards, especially for a travel or retro theme. Or you could choose cigar boxes (5), vintage tea or biscuit tins, or even hat boxes to match a period motif.
Fancy sign stands – For eye-catching signage, use antique-style card holders (7), a mini replica of a bridal gown, or a rustic chalkboard.
Imagine the fun you’ll have reading through the cards of advice, tips, and wishes—whether the day after your wedding, or on your first, fifth, or tenth anniversary!
