Wedding Tip: Ask Guests for Song Requests

Brides: asking guests for song requests on your reply card is a fun (+ interactive) way to pre-plan a perfect playlist! Instead of a boring old ‘plus one’ or ‘chicken vs. fish’, guests can write-in their favorite tune. I wish I did this for my wedding; it would be fun to see the song requests from guests of all ages. These unique song request reply cards are by Crafty Pie as part of the ‘Vintage Modern Wedding Invitation‘ suite.
