- Wedding: August 2011
Ok so originally in the very beginning there once was a paper matte with photo for guests to sign and later for us put on the wall to enjoy. That idea went out the window b/c of the change in photographers at the last minute, we never had an option b. Well i am sure I mentioned to him I got a guest book. I know also that Fiance wasnt listening when i mentioned to him me purchasing the book when I did. So today I brought up the guest book randomely for advice on where to set it up. FI had all the sudden asked why do we need one? And why do we need to have a book of just signatures, when we will never look at it. Well I was upset that he didnt try to see my view and that he didnt even remeber me telling him about it :(. But am now confused. I googled it and it turns out for people who are into keepsake, a guest book is great to have. If your not a keepsake person then dont have a keepsake item at the wedding. My NOW dilemma is him being a nonkeepsake person do I (am I one)want the book now? I mean I bought it already, I had planned and thought he had planned to use it. And not sure if I should be like ok lets have the book and signitures I wont look at ever again, or keep it even though I will look at it maybe few time in my lifetime JUST to throw it back in a box? Or should I have it regardless of how feel right now which I feel confused. Or even though I paid money for it just forgoe it since I am rally not feelin it anymore but just discouraged. Or maybe I dont want one just not sure if I will regret not having one though. Is a guest book important to you? What should I do? What should I say to him if I call him tonight, or see him tomorrowI mean I am up for either way having it or not, just the fact that I purchased one would be really the main thing of having it there and maybe one or two of decent advice written in the guest book out of all the short not so helpful sweet phrase and mostly signature heavy book of only 70 person wedding.Or go with it and just put a sign saying to write your advice for our road ahead …? any thoughts, concerns, questions, suggestions, advice very welcomed and ENCOURAGED, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE:)!
