My husband and I got home from our honeymoon today. It was wonderful, as was the wedding. We sat down to open our cards and gifts, which was nice. Then we went through our guest book.
I had decided to make a photobook on shutterfly for us to use since we didn’t like the idea of just have a giant book with two pages filled. (We were just not going to have one at all but a got a gift card and really fell in love with the idea). The book turned out beautifully and I just loved being able to flip through it and look at our engagement pictures.
Becsuse I loved the book so much I started to worry about people signing on the pictures instead of the blank space around them. But the I figured, they’re adults, they’ll figure it out. I was also worried about kids drawing on the pictures but I thought their parents would keep an eye out and it would be ok.
I did not prepare myself for my sister’s 27 year old boyfriend drawing a goatee on my husband’s face on one of my favorite pictures. I am so pissed off. I cannot BELIEVE a grown person would think that is even remotely ok. It’s not like I can replace the picture. It’s part of a book that is now full of well wishes from our wedding. I wish a kid had done it because then I’d be able to get over it. But an adult??? Are you freaking kidding me???

@MistySoda: OK so the guy’s an idiot.
If it’s glossy paper… is there any way to erase it?

If it was drawn with magic marker, a q-tip will remove it if it’s soaked in alcohol. There is a risk it will lift the photo ink from the paper, too. So use with caution.

This is really sad, and I bet your sister watched him do it 🙁 I’m sorry. If it was my sister’s bf I would FLIP OUT on him and demand he pay to reprint the book he ruined!

@MistySoda: You have to be joking?!?!? I mean we did write in our best mans book at their wedding we had to be the first to ask when they having their first kid but given we were always joking with them about how everyone asks that after you get married it was more of an inside joke than malicious, plus it was just a regular guestbook where they can choose to never read our messgae if they are offended by it but what he did was just stupid. I was slightly nervous about what some of my socially awkward friends would write on the blank canvases we have hanging on our wall now but they were really good about it…
I’m so so sorry… I’d be furious really I would… can you not maybe reprint the book from scanned images and just edit that out… I know it’d suck and it wouldn”t be the same… I can promise his comment would be you’ll laugh about it in a few years but I somehow doubt that in this case..

Ugh. This happened to a friend of mine, but it was on every picture in the whole book. The book cost $800. The jerks that did it bought her a new one.

I’m sorry, but I giggled when I read that – I think it is quite funny and I hate to say it would have gone through my mind to do the same.
Don’t sweat it, it was meant in jest, take it as such.
