A wedding guest book is a great way of keeping those precious memories of your big day. Here are a few tips to make sure that you do not end up with a blank book at the end of your wedding day.
A good idea is to nominate a member of your bridal party to go round and make sure that everyone has put a comment in your book. If you leave it to your guests, there are bound to be some who forget.
Recently it has become popular to leave a Polaroid camera with your for guests to add their picture as well as a comment. It is even possible to buy a guest book with slots in it for Polaroid pictures. This not only provides you with an amusing guest book but will also make sure that you have a picture of everyone that attended your wedding. This will be a great accompaniment to your wedding photo album.
It is a nice idea to have a guest book that matches your wedding photo album and there are plenty of sets on the market for you to choose from. If you keep the color scheme the same as your wedding colors you will have a beautiful memento set to keep.
If you want guests to write something more than the usual sentiments, add a note on the front cover of your book asking guests to comment on their memories of the couple or something similar. This will give you a guest book with interesting and amusing comments to look back on.
And do not forget to provide pens for guests to write with. A pot of pens is always a good idea as they get dropped and lost so easily.
If you end up with a guest book that is only half full then use the rest as a journal for your honeymoon or add any photographs that guests have taken on the day.
