So I know that my wedding is over two years away, but I am a firm believer in getting things done with plenty of time to spare, thus avoiding the Queen of Procrastination in me! And I just happened to be in the mood to get my digital groove on and create my own version of what the Guestbook Store has to offer for brides looking for a unique guestbook. I decided to do my own version because A) I didn’t want the whole “Draw the Bride and Groom” section on it, B) The Guestbook Store requires that you buy their album covers (none of which I like much) and the site says that these albums only hold 80 pages so if you need more than 80 you are required to buy more albums, and C) I wanted to see if I could get a custom Album cover done which a picture of me and FH from the wedding on it and I am sure I could get one made that would hold all guestbook pages rather than just 80.
So without further ado here is my creation. Let me know what you think. I may do some more tweaking after I print a test copy as sometimes the clip art just does not print nicely, but I have to say that I think it turned out pretty darn good!
(Also I just wanna thank Mrs. Eggplant for a post that she made about making her own version of this too in 2007, the doodle section idea came from her!!!)

I love it but it might be a lot to ask guests to write. You might think of keeping the pages loose until and then binding into a book after your wedding – that way you could have more than one couple filling out a page at the same time. Nice work!

this is a cute idea, but I may borrow it for the bridal shower instead, when people have more time to think and write. Love the design though!

Thats a really cute idea. I would just take out the name of your children prediction. People might give up.. It kind of has too mcuh writing envolved, but its a way fun idea.

LOVE IT! of course, I don’t have mine on me – but I did the same thing!!! I bought an 8×8 WEDDING scrapbook and TONS of extra inserts and will have 1 left and 1 right page.
I’m thinking about putting out the two piles (one left, one right) and the pen – with the scrapbook displayed next to it and some sort of message asking everyone to “sign” the book!
also – i agree there might be too much for people to write. mine includes the name at the top, a section for “how far did you travel” “how do you know the bride and groom” “advice for” and in that big box “wishes for the bride and groom” and the right page is the mirror of the left. 🙂

Does anyone still have the format for this? I would love to do something like this!
