I hosted a bridal shower recently and this is the tag booklet we made for the bride. The bride is from another country and had not met the groom's family and friends before, so I came up with this idea as a way of bringing memories or advice into her life, along with a keepsake. Also, the bride and groom are moving to China for a year after the wedding, so large gifts were not very suitable, hence the shipping tag idea.
I mailed out shipping tags with the shower invitations and asked each guest to write one of three things on one side of the tag: 1) a favorite memory of the groom, 2) a favorite marriage advice or 3) a favorite Bible verse. Then the guests brought the tag to the shower and we decorated the other side and connected them together with a ring. Also, if an invitee could not make it, I just asked them to mail the tag, and we completed the decorating.
To add to the fun, we had the bride vote for her top three, and the winners got to take home one of the table decorations.
Contrast is everything . . .
