Wedding Guestbook - Cherry Blossom

Kim and Nick's Guestbook

Below is a sample of the guest book that I worked on for my good friend Kim and her husbands wedding last September. This isn't your usual guest book where guest "scratch" their signature and put such sentiments as "good luck" or "about time". This was truly a personal keepsake that the couple will treasure even on their 25Th wedding anniversary.

Each wedding invitation that was sent wedding invitation received a card that required each guest to answer three simple questions and return it with their reply card.

The questions that were ask are as follows:
  1. Top 3 Tips for a Successful Marriage
  2. Favorite Memory of Kim and Nick
  3. Best Wishes for the Bride and Groom

Each page in the book was dedicated to an individual couple or guest, for those who could not make it like Nicks brother who was stationed overseas a page was also included. There was even special pages for the Bride and Grooms parents and lets not forget Nana.

Each response that was sent back with the reply card was designed, printed and added to the book. But it doesn't end there, during the wedding another photographer was tasked with shooting portraits of all the guests which were later printed and also added to the book.

Here is our portrait from the wedding.

What a great idea, its all about the personal things!

Love it! It's a great idea that everyone gets to be a part of the guest book. It will probably be their most treasured wedding gift. I love the work you put into this album, looks great! I will keep this idea in mind for the next wedding I go to. Thanks for sharing.
