Wedding Mad Libs

So, what are wedding mad libs? If you’re familiar with the traditional mad lib game, it works just the same. The mad lib goes on the front, while the reverse side provides guests with what needs to be filled in (pronouns, nouns, verbs, and adjectives). Guests fill in the blanks, flip over the card, and transfer their answers into the appropriate blanks. Then, they’ll read the full ‘story’. It’s usually a hilarious result because the blanks were filled in without knowing the premise of the storyline.

Guests then place their completed mad libs in a basket and you can place them all in a book or keepsake box in lieu of a traditional guest book. Here are a few designs to inspire you:

    Hi Paige! Great question. I would recommend putting them into a scrapbook. At least then you can flip through them all (and they won’t just be collecting dust in your drawer). Hope it helps!
