Fun Guest Book Alternatives
I have been asked recently by several of my 2011 brides...do you have an guest book ideas other than the book and pen format? Below are two of my favorite, interactive ideas.
Consider creating a scrapbook of your guests photo and special note. It's a simple idea, but you would need to ask a few family members or friends to assist in accomplishing the task. Basically, you would need a scrapbook, a couple Polaroid cameras, double-sided tape and colored markers/pens. Someone would take a picture of the guest(s), adhere the photo to the book and the guest would write a message next to their photo. This alternative is a GREAT keepsake for the couple and one I'm sure they'll enjoy as they read the messages together.
The second alternative is creating a tree and allowing your guest to hang well-wishes from the branches. The make the tree you would need some branches, a vase or decorative container, glass gems or marbles, moss and a few flowers for accent. For the guests to leave a message, on the display table, leave some decorative cards with ribbon attached and a few colored pens. Once the reception has concluded and you have returned from your honeymoon, you can read the messages and keep them in a scrapbook or photo album to read over and over again.
Until next time...WEDologize!
