Last weekend, I was the disc jockey for a fun tent wedding at The Clifton Park Elks Lodge in Clifton Park, NY. And once again, the bride and groom did something I had never seen before and am now compelled to share with you.
If you are reading this, maybe you are planning your wedding. Are you tired of the same old traditional guest book and want to add some personality to your wedding reception?
Well, if the answer is yes, then here is an alternative to the wedding guestbook, perfect for those who like to be creative and different.
This neat twist on the wedding guest book is one where each guest “leaves” a fingerprint as proof of attendance. The finished product is a beautiful piece of artwork.
It is really pretty easy.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN WEDDING THUMBPRINT TREE
1) Provide a poster with a tree skeleton already mapped out.
2) Put out a number of lids of ink and also a scrap sheet for people to wipe excess ink onto.
3) You will also need colorful pens so that each guest can sign their fingerprint above their leaf.
4) Have the DJ announce the tree idea to guests throughout the evening.
To really make it colorful, provide different shades of green (or browns if you are going with a fall theme) so that the collection of prints will look even more like a real tree when it is done.
