6. Giant jigsaw puzzle

Personalised with your first names and wedding date engraved on the centre jigsaw piece, this giant jigsaw puzzle comes with a wooden personalised sign with your marriage name, date and instructions for your guests to follow.


7. Signed, sealed, delivered

If you or your partner is into a particular sport or has an interesting hobby, why not ask your guests to sign your favourite equipment? An oar, cricket bat or vinyl record are all ideas which can be signed and displayed in your home with pride. Travel enthusiasts will love this 'Sign the globe' idea.
