A great idea to add to this craze is to put Polaroid cameras on tables where guests can take pictures of themselves or the event in general, and hang or pin it on the corner.
Another great thing about this idea is it also works as a signature board and decoration for guests that you can either keep or display in your home to remember your special day.
