On Friday alot of my students (grade 1/2) decided to draw wedding pictures of my H2B and I on Friday afternoon in their free play time. Two of my girls started drawing and asking how to spell H2B's name, next thing i know, practically the whole class decided to draw a picture. They are really cute pictures of things to do with the wedding.
While they were drawing I asked them different questions of why people get married, what they thought love was etc. I got some really cute and funny quotes from the kids and wrote them all down.
It ended up being a really fantastic, spontaneous and fun activities that i did with the kids. I would really like to include them some how into the the wedding ceremony/reception. Alot of my students will probably be coming to the ceremony so i thought i would display some in a frame at the entrance of the church....not sure what i can really do though...

I know Sar did something like that at her wedding, she had them on cards on a table I think?
My pre preps are funny, they say things like "so I hear your getting married", and "when is your wetting?"! So cute!

Maybe you can scan them all and bind them into a photo book (think momento/snapfish/officeworks). It would be a great keepsake.

I have Grade 1's and they are all drawing me beautiful pictures about my wedding, and it's still 3 months away.
I was going to use them for our wedding invites, but FH didn't like the idea. Instead, I am thinking of creating a mock art gallery of my kids work at the reception, probably on the candy bar I think.

Awww how sweet.
Maybe you could project them onto a screen in your Church? That way it can entertains the guests as you're signing the register.
Not long to go now!!!

oooooooh thats so cute!!!
you could have the quotes on the name cards and the pictures instead of table names?
or laminate and bind into a big book with blank pages inbetween for the adults to leave wishes, anecdotes, advice etc
depending on what the quotes are like perhaps once you have your professional photos you can combine them into a book with the quotes that match the photos?

Aww that is so gorgeous.....I think Riverwild's suggestions is perfect. Make them into a momento guest book and leave spare pages for the adults. I also love the art gallery suggestion but i know my reception venue won't allow anything to be attached to the walls - not even blu tac, so maybe check first.
