Guest Blogger Stephanie Buttrill is an account supervisor at Ketchum, the public relations agency for FedEx Office. She was married in April 2009, and has had some great ideas for the Out of Office Wedding Series based on her own wedding planning adventures! We loved Stephanie’s guest book idea and asked her to share it with our readers.
All the weddings I’ve ever been to (which admittedly are few at my ripe old age of 27!) have featured some kind of guest sign-in book on a table by the entrance. I suppose the bride imagines this book full of signatures will serve as a record of sorts, reminding her years from now just who made it to her big day…and how good their penmanship is. I wanted a reminder too, but figured there had to be a better way to do it.
As an avid scrapbooker in my scant free time, I thought: why not combine the scrapbook model with the traditional guest book? In my version of the book, the pages are split evenly between photos and messages from guests, which are tucked inside small envelopes I found in my wedding colors.
