My daughter’s wedding was a very personal event. She and Clarence had many choices to make, but each of them had a very personal touch. They were looking for a different sort of guest book – not the traditional “sign your name” variety. Since everything had to go back to Australia (boo!) after the wedding, we didn’t think one of those big photo mats would work. I came up with the idea to encourage each guest to write a little “love note” to the bride and groom, and of course they couldn’t write those notes on scratch paper:
I used stamps from the Summer Silhouette, Loving Thoughts, and Everything Eleanor stamp sets to embellish the cards. One was at each place setting along with a sign designed by Crystal:
These signs were printed 3×5 inches on Very Vanilla card stock and were put on small table tents, two per table. The guests drew, told stories, gave advice, and created a wonderful reminder for the bride and groom. I didn’t get a photo before they left, but when all the cards were gathered together I created a front and back cover and made a book to hold all these wonderful messages.
