My FI and I are having a DW at Disney World, and expecting about 125 guests. The resort already does a lot for our guests, and handles almost everything for us.
We recently went to my cousin's wedding, where my FI got so frustrated with meeting everyone that he eventually shut down. The following weekend, we went to his cousin's wedding where I was the one meeting distant cousins. The two experiences made me wish I had written a family tree for him, and he had done the same for me.
Since we are having a DW, most of our guests will be together for several events. My idea was to create little mini photobooks of all of our guests with a little mini-bio about their connection to my FI and I. I would do one per family and have it included in their check-in packet. I know it is a bit of work, but I will have several weeks off from work for Christmas, and could easily get it done then. I feel that because it is a DW, I need to make an extra effort to make everyone more comfortable.
My sister said it was creepy, and FI said too much of an expense (about $9 per book, needing 40, it costs less than the postage for all of the invite stuff).
What are your thoughts?
Is that a cool ice-breaker or creepy tool for all of the guests?
