Wish upon a Wall; the Story of a Guestbook

You need a guest book. Or a guest quilt. Or a guest picture frame or plate…you get the idea; you need a place for your friends and family to write you a little message of good luck and love.  How about something totally different?  How about this beautiful wall of wishes?  Your guests can pick their favorite color, write you a secret note and add their wish to this keepsake.  Or, you could buy one for yourselves, and add wishes as you think of them, opening them on your first anniversary. The possibilities are endless! I’m always on the lookout for interesting and beautiful products that  can add a unique touch to my couples’ weddings and wedding ceremonies.  And when those unique items can do some greater good, it is just a win win win!!!! This beauty is from a great company called Uncommon Goods, and I guarantee that when you go to their site or look through their catalog, you’re going to get a LOT of great ideas!~

Uncommon Goods is an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices. They believe that creativity and the expression of individuality represent two great human treasures. Their beautiful site and catalog make uncommon goods accessible to everyone.

Uncommon Goods presents shoppers with an array of special features that make shopping an entertaining, convenient, and environmentally sound experience. Their print catalogs are printed on recycled paper (30% post consumer waste) and all their offerings are produced without harm to animals. The familiar  green recycled icon throughout the website will let you know which products are made of  recycled materials.

In addition, they will  donate a portion of each order to your choice of non-profit organizations: Defenders of Wildlife, the Craft Emergency Relief Fund, which aids artisans in need, Comprehensive Development, which assists underserved NYC high school students, and AmeriCares, which provides humanitarian assistance around the world and has played a major role in the relief effort for the victims of the recent tsunami in Asia.  It is truly a wonderful way to give and give back at the same time. And how perfect is that for a wedding?
