Gift "play-along-at-home kits" to family and friends who can't make the wedding

Our Offbeat Intern, Liz, had an amazing idea that she made happen at her handmade well-armed wedding: a play-along-at-home kit!

The concept is that you send out a care package of sorts to any family or friends who can't make the wedding. It could contain an invite, a favor, activity books, your program, and in Liz's case, a "ticket" to log in and watch the ceremony live-streamed. Anyone who can't make it can still feel like they were a part of your day, with a tangible gift to remember it by.

Liz and her groom Kevin took it one step further and made it into an actual game:

We ordered game boxes and resurfaced some Scrabble boards with Mod Podge into a "game board" and put little pieces in. We then added the favors (dinosaur temporary tattoos, wacky placemats, mini four-packs of Star Wars crayons, twenty-sided dice, popcorn, and the tickets to log on to the live-streaming.
