I love creative guest books. They are a wonderful detail to DIY for your wedding since you only have to make one and most every guest will interact with it, which will make a statement. It’s also a very special memento of your day, being able to read loving sentiments of family and friends who were in attendance is truly a gift. In thinking of what you’d like to make, don’t forget to think about the future – where will it go after your wedding? Do you want to have it out on display or will it be kept in a special box somewhere? When I got married eight long years ago, it was super cool to have your guests sign a matted frame of an engagement photo and so that’s what we did. As passé as that might be now, I still love it. It hangs on our wall and I actually read it often. So I was thinking on how I could bring you a project that was similar… and when I saw these giant photostrips from Social Print Studio I knew I had found it. So today I’m excited to share how you can make your own Giant Photostrip Guest Book with just a few easy steps. Huge thanks to Shots by Cheyenne for allowing me to use these beautiful images of Joseph + Shea (our new bridal blogger!) for the project. You can make one, two or many more, hang them together or in a few different places… maybe even one on his side of the bed and one on yours!
