In an effort to have a mostly DIY wedding, we crafted our guest book, wedding cards, and thank yous. When guests arrived to our house, we had them take a photo via my cousins Polaroid camera. That photo went into a guest book where they could write us a message. We loved this because 1. We got to get photos of everyone before enjoying the open bar, and 2. We loved reading some of the notes. To round out the book we ordered Foxgram prints of all of our friends’ tweeted, Instagramed, and Facebooked photos (all tracked down via #brianandfatimatietheknot). In addition to Beth’s photos, our friends captured some great moments at different angles.
To make the guest book, we bought a small photo book from Michaels and filled the pages with card stock (cut by our talented and beautiful sister-in-law, Natasha). That’s it!
What do you do with all of your Wedding Cards? We hate throwing out cards – we’re sentimental that way. I still have pretty much every birthday card since I was a kid. So, in order to keep all of them, I thought we could make a book out of them. I saw this on Something Turquoise. This is how our book came out.
Whether you’re looking to send a Save the Date or a Thank You, a magnet is a great way to say it. These are pretty easy to make and all you really need is a photo you love. Brian used Photoshop to add the text because we didn’t like any of the other
