I had a pretty small, minimalist wedding...before minimalism was really a thing. I had a few things that were important to me and the rest I wanted to keep as simple as possible. For me, the things that mattered most were my dress, the pictures, and the cake. Everything else I sort of just let happen.
I didn't want to spend a lot of time or money on reception decorations so we had it in a friend's gorgeous backyard, rented some chairs, and at the last minute ended up reusing flowers from a reception the night before that happened to be our colors!
We didn't have a line or a formal entrance. We just kept it very simple. One thing I wish we would have included, was a display to share a little bit about ourselves with our guests. After all, the majority of the guests only knew one of us.
I also wish we would have better recorded the guests who did come to our reception. We had a guest book set out but it wasn't in a very visible place so it didn't get a lot of traffic. And let's be honest. The guests aren't there to sign the guest book. They're coming for the bride and groom!
So I found 7 great alternatives to the traditional guest book table. Check them out! You can find more ideas that didn't make the cut on my Pinterest board here.
