for our guest book table at the wedding, we decided to make advice cards vs having an actual book. this way, we thought we could avoid the typical “thanks for having us, love blank & blank” and get some real talk from our guests.
we went with three categories : advice for us, date ideas, and fond memories.
all we did was buy three simple wood craft boxes and made small cards the same size to fit. gideon then cut them all out (and kind of hated me during the process). we then filled our toothbrush cup with pens. we dish washed it first. and after.
we also didn’t know how to fill the large table, so we bought 10 white frames from ikea and printed out old photos of us so the guests could see some fun photos. not sure anyone really looked at them, but they were fun to print?!
it’s super fun to read the date ideas (a lot of them consisted of either watching tv or specifically not watching tv — apparently everyone knows we spend too much time watching tv). i haven’t figured out where or how we’ll store the cards, so if anyone has an ideas — lemme knowwww.

BTW, after I renewed the hosting for a large amount, two of their support team told me on separate occasions that I could have got it approximately 30% cheaper if I had called them, so I felt quite cheated to start with. On top of that the hosting service was unfunctionally slow, and finally I could not get support to solve my problem, and to crown it all, they did not reply to my emails.
Lee,Thank you for this informative article. One other hidden cost involved in deploying ANY Apple device on a school network-Apple Updates!4-5 T1’s won’t cut it when many of the iPad updates are in the hundreds of MB’s. To offset that, an internal Apple Update/Task Server would be needed. As such, the server would pull updates from Apple when they become available, and subsequently avail those to the LAN side. Meaning all iPad clients could then pull those updates locally instead of congesting the 4-5 T1’s.
gotta favorite this website it seems invaluable extremely helpful
It’s a list of manufacturers. If it listed fish, it would be a fish list, not a fish’s list. We’d say no apostrophe.
I have a problem with website builder which is I can’t download my website builder to copy it to a regular host. Do you have any suggestions?

Visible Learning: Feedback in schools by John Hattie Educational Leadership [Takeaways – : 7 Things to Remember about Feedback As the coaches have been studying the instructional practice of “monitoring learning and providing descriptive feedback to and among students,” I’ve learned that feedback is an area in which we can grow as educators. It’s very powerful when given accurately, but —??like many teachers — I’ve??often given praise or a score (rather than true feedback).?? Good point! And don’t forget about AP credits. Our oldest received enough credits so that when she started college she was technically a second semester sophomore. She won’t graduate early, but she will have a triple major. All those AP’s are allowing her some time to figure out what she really wants to do with her life without costing us an additional year and a half’s worth of college expenses. Hi Tim..

Especially in early November ???? Congratulation to all. Great news. Two books are better than one. The first one will be perfect for post turkey and stuffing treat. Nice Discussion… but i think so its time for kindle books, they are getting popularity day by day, apple must improve its UI for books and also slash prices. “read em all you lazy degenerate gamblers” That’s hilarious =D We do buy Nooks. Call your nearest Bookmans to see if they’re currently seeking e-readers. You’re welcome! I found it at a little souvenir/art shop near Petite Riviere. It was a pleasure to read.
Love this idea! I’m in the middle of planning my wedding for September and every post of yours this week I’ve been favoriting. Just DIY my whole wedding, thanks ;)
I love every details on this, Molly! It’s awesome.
Best, Albert | Palming Pebbles
Thanks Molly for all the posts this week – they’re so useful as I’m planning my own wedding! Quick question, do you have any plans for putting these into a book or something like that?
This was a great idea and it looks so beautiful, clean and elegant. You should definitely see if it is possible to make them into some kind of booklet.
OMG I did not even see this table at the wedding! So sad I missed it – such a cute idea!
Molly, I absolutely love ALL of your wedding DIYs – so much inspiration! Random question, given all your printing, which printer do you use? I’m planning on DIYing invitations, escort cards, menus and more paper DIYs, any suggestions?
And congrats on the wedding! :)
