Did anyone use a photo book as their guest book?
If so, did you have a page where it said something like, “Welcome to our wedding. We’re so happy to have you join us for our special day. Names and date of wedding” – like on Page 1?
Or… did you just go right into the pics to have people start signing the book from Page 1?
I am planning on having a small sign where it advises to sign the photo book (so they know), and not sure if anyone would see any intro page anyway.

I made one with Shutterfly – the template we picked had a cute little introduction that we kept.

I make these for my friends and I either use a quote/phrase that she has pinned or goes with their wedding theme. Or I just put their date and names in beautiful script/font.
When I make the books, the cover is just one of their engagement photos, no title or anythign so they can use it as a coffee table book/ display after wards….

librarygirl85: I just started a plain white album in Shutterfly, but will check out some of the other designs to see if I can find this introduction. 🙂

Kacie209: I think I used Shutterfly too, if I remember, and it had a template like PP mentioned – but here’s my word of warning – my book somehow got laid open to the “bridal party – his side (on the left page) her side (on the right page)” and people misunderstood and people that were there “for me” signed on my side and those that were “for him” signed on his side – it was supposed to be just pages for the actual bridal party to sign – ugh!! So NOBODY even looked at/signed the rest of the pages that I had worked so hard on!! And there were pages to like leave memories or write little notes, so all I ended up getting was lists of the people that were there – kind of defeated the purpose of not going with a traditional guest book.
Anyway, just wanted to warn you to maybe have someone on ‘guest book duty’ to either help explain or to make sure the book continuously gets turned back to the intro page??

I used a shutterfly with a title page that said Essential Wisdom for the Newly Wedded…as it was intended for ppl to write words of advice throughout the book, which they did. I started pics on the very next page and about three pages in was the sign in pages with just a title of Guest Sign-In.
