Having something like this for everyone is a surefire way to show people how much you care and how important they are to you. It's also a sweet little gift for them to take home and pin to their car sun visor or office cork board.

This idea came to me when my husband said he wanted "to play lots of games at our wedding." At first, I thought... 'Gosh, NO! Absolutely not. Nobody is going to want to play games.' We ended up compromising and settled on just one game. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our night... (that and the midnight mountain hike!) Our guests got a kick out of the game and had so much fun participating. Heck, half of the all the phone videos from the wedding are of our guests relay racing in gowns and suits and they are just hysterical!
