Name Game

The Idea: Show guests how much their presence really means to you by using their names as decorations. Thanks to the groom's clever thinking, Janine and Kevin Kaczmarek featured the names of all 250 guests on their four-tier wedding cake by Simply the Best Cakes at their Southgate wedding. It took their baker three hours to write out each name! "At the reception, our guests were all taking pictures of where their names appeared on the cake," says Janine.

Why We Love It: It's a great way to make guests feel like they are a special part of your event, and will keep them talking about your wedding long after it ends. —Lauren Matthews
