Welcome to Wedding Wednesday!!
Did you like my alliteration there? Spiffy, right?
Today I wanted to share some ideas for unique guest books. WHY, you ask? Because I’m waiting for mine to arrive, and have been VERY impatient in doing so! I keep counting the days and checking my mail and doorstep, hoping! I’m pretty proud to announce that I have NOT contacted the company yet though, so I think I’m doing pretty darn well. That’s patience right there! ;)
We opted to go with a more traditional route for our guest book, although a little different from the actual book that everyone writes their name in. It’s a photo guest book that I designed myself with our engagement photos, I will share the design after the wedding! As I write this it’s dawning on me that I never really shared our engagement photos. I will definitely have to do that, although it probably won’t be for awhile. Maybe I can do it after the honeymoon, when I’m “patiently” waiting for the wedding photos!
While trying to choose the style that we wanted, I poured over ideas. Photos are extremely important to me, so I knew I wanted something that would include photos. I saw some really awesome ideas, and some not so awesome ideas. I saw some really cheaply made scrapbooks with photo booth pictures that would last for oh about 2 years. I saw some trees, some thumbprints, and more and more. Some of the ideas, while not really for me, were really original and unique – and I love that! Some of them were a little TOO much for me, kind of cheeseball. I knew I wanted something fun and classic, with photos, and high quality so that it would last for decades!
So I thought I would share some of the favorite ideas that I found while searching!
This is by FAR my favorite that we decided not to do. Actually, I like this so much, we might still do it. It’s one of those things that doesn’t require a lot of work ahead of time, and can be added in quickly, so for any of my wedding guests, you might see a calendar on your way in!
This is such a cool idea to collect your loved ones’ birthdays, so that you can remember them every year! I LOVE me some birthdays people… like REALLY love them. I don’t just have a birth DAY, I have a birthday MONTH, yeah! So this idea is a really good fit! Then I can celebrate other peoples’ birthdays too. :)
