About a month after our small civil family-only wedding ceremony, we're throwing a party at a bar so we can celebrate/get drunk/dance with about 50-60 of our friends. Open bar and our playlist: done and done. We'd like to put some creative, inexpensive touches on this event to make it feel more like a wedding and less like a big birthday party. (Inexpensive is key. We love the idea of a photo booth for example, but they're rather pricey to rent.) I'm hopelessly uncreative. Any ideas?
My two good friends are getting hitched in September. Both are going to be present at the 'wedding shower'. I'm trying to come up with a good gift to give them that is outdoor/nature themed. My original idea was to get them something like a double person sleeping bag (way too expensive though.. $200+) and now I'm still trying to put something together. I will probably add in a giftcard with $20 on it for them to purchase midnight snacks, smores ingredients. As their wedding gift I will be getting them the National Park Annual Pass which is why I'm hoping their gift now can be used during their camping/hiking adventures. They have all the typical gear like tents, boots, etc. Any other clever ideas out there?

My friends have asked me to design their wedding invitations, and have said I could do whatever I want. Before I present them with my own ideas, I want to show them some cool invitations that have already been done. Have you seen any that struck you as really fabulous, creative or unique? [more inside]
