I think we’ve passed the point of having to settle for anything generic at a wedding. Aside from the obvious things that make the day unique – invitations, flowers, vows, attire, linens, food, lighting, the cake – nowadays you can customize the limo, wine bottles, candy, even song lyrics set to popular music.
The guestbook is another thing that you can customize. Both Wedding on the Brain and Peoples Paper have recently blogged about making your own wedding guestbook. Some helpful reminders if you create one with Blurb:
• Leave lots of white space for people to sign your book.
• Feature photos taken throughout your relationship; don’t limit yourself to engagement photos.
• Purchase non-smudge permanent markers, like Sharpie pens, in colors that match your wedding theme.
• Use metallic or white paint pens on black pages, so the writing shows up.
Have some more guestbook tips? Did you use Blurb to make a guestbook for your wedding? We’d love your ideas or a link to your guestbook.
And to drive home the wedding-related notion that everything can be personalized with monograms, pet names, photos, etc, nothing says “I love you forever” like your new married name emblazoned in tiny rhinestones on your bridal undies.
