Yes, you heard correctly! Chopped challenge. If you watch the food Network, then you’ll know what I’m talking about.
This post isn’t really about going on a tv show before your big day though…it’s about a slightly different idea for your guest book.
I know I’ve written about guest books before and I am ALWAYS looking for new ideas for this particular wedding tradition. The days of the good old guest book are on their way out (hopefully!). No offense to anyone who is going that route, but I know myself, that book would be covered in dust never to be opened again.
Enough about me….this is my new favourite guest book idea!
You may have seen this idea before…you may have seen these at a bridal shower or read about a “Date night jar” on someone’s blog. Either way, it’s a pretty fun way for your guests to leave some cool ideas for your coming year(s) together.
The idea is pretty simple. Red popsicle sticks for a potentially expensive date (think weekend away at a winery, bed and breakfast, dinner at your favourite restaurant) I’m sure you get the idea. Pink popsicle sticks would be for a date night out that is a little less costly (dinner and a movie, night at the drive in, mini-putt). The third popsicle option would be for a stay at home date that may require a little planning – this is where the chopped challenge fits in, you could also do popcorn and a Sons of Anarchy marathon (at least that’s what it would be in my house), pizza and board games, etc.
Such a fun idea and if you’re already married with children like I am, this is a pretty great idea to keep the date nights happening!!!
Have a fabulous Thursday!!
