@oryx:  I think it’s a great idea. I would make sure I mailed the invitations early enough so guests had time to put a page together.

See the wording on this post:

Scrapbooking Bridal Shower????

I think Gemstone’s suggested wording would work for you.

 “The bride is about to start a new chapter of her life, so we want to gift her with memories from the previous chapter.  Please bring along a 12″ by 12″ sheet that you have decorated to place in the album.  You can use pictures, memories, words of advice, recipes, funny stories, etc.”

@oryx:  We actually just did a scrapbook at my friend’s shower yesterday. Keep in mind- most people DON’T scrapbook and therefore don’t have the tools, don’t know what to do and are intimidated. 

Here’s what we did: on the invitation we asked people to bring a photo of them & the bride together. Another Bridesmaid or Best Man & I brought our scrapbook stuff along with some stuff specifically purchased for the shower and an 8 by 8 photo book. While we were setting up, I had all the BMs do their pages, so when people who “aren’t crafty” got there, they’d have some examples of what could be done. For people who forgot their photos, I had them make a page and gave them my email address. I’m printing out the photos they send me (or in a couple cases, photos taken at the shower) and I’ll just stick them in the appropriate page. 

I made sure to bring lots of stickers/embellishments that coordinated with the paper, so it was easy for peopel to just slap a few things down to fill space. I wanted it to be as easy as possible.

But make sure everyone is close with the bride. I went to a shower last night where I would hate the scrapbook idea. I like her but were not close. Her fiance is DFs best friend.

I think a lot of people will forget to bring it. At my sisters shower we decorated a scrapbook before hand. Brought pages for everyone to write advice & well wishes. We made sure to take pics of her with every guest/tables so she can fill the pages in with pics.
