DIY Wedding
Guestbook

So I didn't want to have the traditional guestbook or even a matted photo because it never seems like anyone has time to write a truely personal message and there are only so many ways you can say congratulations.
So I was in a store and seen a similar idea available via Martha Stewart but the colors were awful and it still wasn't what I wanted.

So I got out my thinking cap and a glue gun and this is what I got!

I bought a photo album at Michaels (was already 40% off!) that was in my color that had the pocket/sleeves that you would normally put 4x6 photos in and glamed it up a little on the front - I plan on putting a picture of the two of us in the front.
Headed to Staples and purchased some loose card stock and got them to cut it into 4x6 cards which only cost me $6.00 for paper and cutting!
I plan on leaving the cards at the table with a little message for the guests to each write their own message, thoughts, memories, etc.
I will be getting a large vase or decorated box for the wishes to go into and then me and my FH will read them together and place them in the book as we go.

That's a cute idea. I was trying to decide on what I wanted to myself.

I'm doing the same thing! Love this idea and your book looks beautiful. I know I won't ever look at 200 peoples signatures or care to have them on my wall. This is a great way for people to be personal. My plan is to have them write comments and advice on one side and then when i get photos back I will put there photo on the front. If I don't get a picture of everyone that will be ok too. I think it will still look great!
