Aaahhh, summer is here, and in an attempt to sit back and enjoy summer, I am introducing Throwback Thursday, which is a collection of oldies but goodies that need to be revisited since Hill City Bride’s humble beginnings.
Your guests travel near and far and take time out of their day to celebrate you and your love! What a special day filled with memories that you share with your closest friends and family. It is fun to have a record of who is there that day, and a traditional guest book will do just that … but there are so many alternatives to guest books out there! Enjoy this post on a few of the ideas that I found.
This is such a cute idea … why not have guests write down a little tried and true advice? It is a great way to have a wedding keepsake, a record of who was there and some sage things to read. I can imagine a couple getting back from their honeymoon and having a great time reading through the anecdotes.
This one is somewhat common, but a large frame with a lot of white space can be picked up fairly inexpensively (Michael’s and AC Moore often have 40% off sales, or you can at least use your 40% off coupon from the Sunday paper on a full priced frame). Pop in a wedding photo, and you have a visual reminder of your day and those who were there with you to celebrate.
If you know someone who sews, why not have each guest sign a fabric square which can be turned into a quilt to cuddle up with? Interesting to say the least!
Who says that “families” need to be related? A cute “wedding family” tree can be designed as a wall hanging. I love how the bride and groom are two cute little birds on the branch together. Darling!
Photo booths add a lot of fun to a reception, so why not capture those memories into a signable book? It will provide laughter and entertainment for years to come! Click here to find out more about renting a photo booth.
Yes, a guitar may be an odd choice, but why not think about purchasing something that you can display in your home that can be signed? Maybe there is something meaningful to you as a couple that guests can sign to commemorate your wedding. Either way the piece will decorate your home and have you thinking fondly of those who attended your wedding.
You need to read the instructions, but this couple purchased origami paper. Once the guests wrote a note, they put the paper into a vase, and then the couple took the papers and folded them into origami. I can picture the origami figures and such hanging as a mobile in a stunning array of color in the home of the new Mr and Mrs. Fun!
