Our Wedding- Guest Book

In the early stages of planning of our wedding I believe the first item I crossed off our list was our guest book! I got my inspiration from Tying the Knot's guest book! I always thought a traditional guest book was a waste of money...paper...etc... Seriously, what do you do with it after-wards? So, when I saw this idea...I was sold! We just had our engagement shots completed and I was anxious to use them one way or another!

I went with Blurb for our book! They had several different layouts and styles to choose from. I carefully picked out certain graphics but used them as watermarks...




If I could do it again....I would have used one large picture which covered the entire cover like I did for my boudoir book. This was my first time using Blurb book and I was just getting the hang of it...




I had a hard time figuring out which pictures to choose from!




I also made a couple of pages with just pictures...


Please link back to East Coast Wedding when posting any of these pictures.


I had 9 sides with each of those containing lines for our guests to leave sweet messages! We had a perfect amount of space for our guests! The other remaining 12 sides were adorable pictures! There are 11 pages total... We had about 150 people at our wedding...You could also keep those pages blank for a yearbook feel....I am very happy with the over all quality of the book! It was worth every penny!!

Since we had so many compliments about our book....Something tells me our guests were eager to get over there and give us their autographs! So give your guests something new to talk about!!

Anything else I would have done differently besides enlarging the picture on the cover? Probably add more pages of engagement shots!! We currently have our guest book on our coffee table for daily viewing!
