Guest Book

I have never been a fan of the traditional guest book. It feels like you are "signing in" at a conference. Seriously...what do you do with it after the wedding? I was actually going to forget the whole tradition until I came across the Blurb Book. It is very close to the Kodak picture books that I have made in the past for family but the Blurb gives more options for a low price. We all love a low price!!

It only took me a couple of hours to do and finish. I used our engagement shots that our fab photographer took out in Manhattan Beach Ca. It was nice to be able to use these beautiful shots again in a different way. So, I used different layouts and kept specific pages blank with lines on it for our guest to leave a message. This makes it a lot more personal and I can just see it laying out on our living room coffee table for all to enjoy.

Has anyone else used the blurb book? Were you happy with the results? Recommend anything?

This is really a sweet idea, and like you said, you can see laying it out on a coffee table or just having it out somewhere. Otherwise, I don't know what you do with them>?

I've been thinking a lot about the guest books too.. The typical white one ends up in a box and not on the coffee table.. A good family friend did something different which I might just do also... Find a really neat book, like a photography book from the area you're getting married at or a poetry book of love poems and use that as your guest book so it will always be something you will want to use!
