If your guests are a fun group of partygoers (like ours were), they will certainly appreciate this interactive idea!

The result reads as a hilarious and memorable bit of advice they’ve created based on filling in a few easy verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and nouns, where indicated.

Today we’re showing you what you need to make this unique guest book alternative and we’ll answer the following: what a date jar is, how it works, and how easy it is to flawlessly set yours up.

After the wedding, you can display the state cutout sign in your home as a decoration. It is super lightweight, so you can hang it on any wall with simple double-sided tape. Take a look!
