Instead of a dollar dance, have a dollar selfie

If you haven't heard of a "dollar dance," here's the scoop. Guests donate one dollar to get a dance with you at your wedding. Pretty simple concept, but totally customizable to the selfie generation (of which I fully support!). Instead of dancing — since not everyone loves that anyway — guests can contribute a dollar for a selfie with you instead.

Take "wedding in the round" to the next level: set up stations for your ceremony

In a typical wedding in the round, guests surround the couple for the duration of the ceremony. Sometimes guests are seated, sometimes they stand, sometimes they're arrayed in a circle around the couple, and we've even seen them arranged in a spiral! Adam and Lynn went a step further. A few steps actually. They walked around the circle themselves, stopping at different stations to complete their ceremony.

Show the kids at your wedding some extra love with heart-shaped PBJs

For their kid-friendly wedding, Joy said that a friend of theirs cut out heart-shaped PBJs, a little nod to make the kiddos feel extra welcome. I really love this idea for a couple reasons: one, it might help out a parent or two to have some kind of kid-friendly snack around before dinner is finally served. Just to avoid some "hangry." And two, I (obviously) love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I will totally sneak two or three of those in between drinks in the cocktail hour.
