Mad Libs!!

You remember Mad Libs, right?? Of course you do. They were ridiculously awesome.

So when I saw that wedding mad libs are a new thing, I thought, “I have to have it.” I told Mr. Whale about it, and he was like, “What? I don’t get it.” And he still doesn’t really get it. But I decided we would have them anyway. There’s not a whole lot else to tell other than”¦I made some mad libs! Want to see?

The “front” (the first side a guest would see anyway):


The back:


I’m pretty sure this is going to be our solution to a guestbook. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do with a guestbook. The thumbprint trees are cute, but I wouldn’t want to get ink all over myself when I’m all dressed up (so I won’t ask other people to do it either). And whenever someone asks me to sign a guestbook, I end up panicking and writing something either too normal or too weird like, “Congrats!” or “You two are awesome!” or “Have an awesome marriage!”

I’m planning on putting these at each table so the guests can fill it out while they wait to get in line for the buffet. They were super simple to make. I used Microsoft Word. It took me about 45 minutes. Bam. Guest book done.

Has anyone else done the wedding mad libs thing? Were the results super awesome?

    We used Mad Libs for our RSVP cards. They were awesome! I kept every last one of them. I wanted to do a DIY project and make them into part of the decor… I just ran out of time and energy :(

    That’s great! You have better skills than I do. I made mad libs for my upcoming wedding but couldn’t figure out how to do the word type under the line in word so I just numbered my blanks so they could fill them in that way. How did you do that??

    I’d be willing to bet that it’s a word doc, single spaced, the lines underneath the underline is a different font size.

    I hadn’t heard of wedding mad libs, but it is a great idea for a guest book! I’m starting to try to think of what to do, but i’m like you- I do a canned response because i have previously been made fun of for super sweet comments (so i don’t sign a book like that anymore, but possibly would sign a card i put in a box that is not open to public viewing).

    @Naomi: I inserted text boxes and moved them around :) So it’s like dragging a picture around.

    I love this idea! FYI, not sure if it is too late to change them, but the first “adjective” is the wrong part of speech – for example, I might write “cute” and then you guys “are the cute couple ever!” and it doesn’t make sense. “Cutest” is a superlative adjective … could you write “adjective ending in -est” or maybe modify the text in the story so a regular adjective would work?

    If it is too late to change it I’m sure the guests will still love it, and I think everyone will just write the proper form of the word when they flip over the sheet and read the sentence, so not to worry!

    @scienceandcupcakes: Whoops! Thanks for pointing that out. It’s definitely not too late to fix it. Not a single one has been printed :) I’m changing it now :)

    The first couple of times I also felt very panicky about being asked to sign a guest book/wish tree. But now I know to expect it, and usually try to think of something nice to say in advance. :)
    And I think madlibs is cute!

    I love Mad Libs and wanted to do something similar, not sure if it would be for a guest book or something else, or may be a supplemental guest book? I do love them though, and they’re fun. FI and I used to lay in bed and do Mad Libs because we’re goofballs and we got a huge kick out of them.

    The girls I babysit/our flower girls LOVE Mad Libs. We spent at least an hour doing them the other day. I think you may have just given me inspiration for the kid activity books.

    In other news, I’d love to fill this out and turn it in at the end of the night. So much fun and if a guest still wants to write a personal note, there’s room on the paper. Win! :)
