Heather and Matt had lots of 8-bit references in their wedding, but our favorite was definitely their Nintendo card box. The best part was their instructions sign that read, "If it does not work on first try, blow on card and reinsert card." HA. If you don't get that reference, you're most likely a youngin'.

  1. Pretty cool! Any chance of a link to instructions on how they made this? Though I suppose it would be: buy game system, open game system, gut it, close it. But if there were anything more to it instructions would be great!
