- Wedding: October 2013
Ok, so I already KNEW outr guests were awesome… I mean, we invited them! But some of them have just blown us away with their thoughtfulness.
On Friday, my parents came home from a 2 week trip to Germany, during which time they attended the wedding of a family friend. They mentioned something about their guest book being a German tradition (?) where the pages are blank so guests may draw, leave advice, simply sign their name, or however they choose to leave their mark. They told me that they then bring the guest book out for all other events to reflect on things people said and have others sign it as well. I thought “Oh, that’s cute!”
Lo and behold, after they unpacked, they brought down a gift from Johanne and Clemens (the couple that got married)… They sent us our own blank-inside, leather-bound, prepared-to-stand-the-test-of-time guest book. They wrote us a lovely card as well. I nearly cried at how sweet it was. AND Johanne is able to come to our wedding!
So now we have a beautiful keepsake guest book with a great story behind it, and there’s another thing I was able to check off my list!
