Your wedding is a big deal. You put a lot into it. But when it’s over, the whole thing is a blur. Who was there? What did they do? That’s where the books come in. The photo guest book is a place to record who was there, and their best wishes for you. Blurb offers a number of ways to make your wedding guest book, from the templates in Blurb BookSmart, to the flexibility of our InDesign plug-in that lets your design genius (or the design genius of your wedding photographer) run free. Here are a few things to think about when making your DIY wedding photo guest book:
1) Simple sign-in
The most basic guest book has a place for names, opposite photos of you. BookSmart has a template for this. You just place the photos opposite the signature pages.
2) Get interactive
Maybe you want more than just a list of names, maybe you want your wedding guests to do a little work for their cake. A wedding book that asks questions makes your wedding book truly special. Pro tip: Try to get them to sign it before the fifth champagne toast.
3) The write stuff
One of the questions we get the most about wedding guest books is which paper is best for writing on. Hands down, the best and least-likely to smear with most inks is ProLine Uncoated. And frankly, it just looks beautiful. However if you want a more traditional photo paper, you’ll want to supply people with some Ultra-Fine-Point Sharpie pens.
