Are you having an "East Coast Style" reception with dancing FIRST?

A lot of American wedding receptions follow this formula: a grand entrance followed by a meal, speeches, and finally dancing.

They provided paper and pens for guests to write down whatever they thought they should add to their bucket list: travel ideas, adventures, date nights, philanthrophic goals, etc. We figured we'd see what kind of bucket list guestbooks we could find out in the wild that you could snag for your own wedding guestbook purposes. Here's what we found…
