Don't tell me you didn't love these as a kid. Give your guests Mad Libs and hilarity most definitely ensues. You've got choices when it comes to the presentation — hit them before the wedding even starts with an interactive Mad Libs wedding invitation, or wait until the reception and give them a fun Mad Libs guest book to sign. Here, a few of our favorites!
