Wedding Wednesday- The Guestbook

June 27, 2012

Seeing as we had a photo booth at the wedding I knew I would like some way in which to use all those fun photos of the guests afterwards. I had the idea that I would make my own guestbook and have people sign their names beside a space for a photo to be added later. I started brainstorming all the ways of how I could put this together and couldn't come up with a way to bind it on my own without it looking like a plain old photo album.

Alas, Etsy came to my rescue again!

I searched Etsy for guestbooks and the very thing I was trying to make myself popped up right away. Amy from Modern Shabby creates beautiful guestbooks and she covers them in any colour of fabric and ribbon your would like. She added the exact number of pages that I wanted which had lines for people to leave a message on and a space for their photo. She also added a tag with our names and wedding date on the front. It was perfect!

We placed the guestbook at the entrance to the reception and my Aunt- Auntie Tweedle- stood over it and made sure people signed as they walked by. We had signatures from almost everyone... she only missed a few! 

I finally just finished putting the book all together with the photos and everything and I was really pleased with how it turned out. It's a lot of fun to look at and a great keepsake.
