Alternative guest book



Ah, the good old wedding guest book. Sometimes a cross between an address book and a school diary. All nicely lined and perfectly spaced. Confining your wit and wisdom, mis-guided humour and well wishes into 1cm spaces.
I'll be the first to admit, sometimes I've just signed my name. Perhaps with an 'all the best' (smiley face).
Saving my heartfelt sentiments for the card.
For this wedding however, we are trying a little harder. Each table has their own envelope, with individual cards inside. Whilst they relax, have a glass of vino and enjoy their entree, guests are encouraged to leave a little love note for the bride and groom. Anything goes, poetry, sketches, words of wisdom or they can even unleash their inner Matt Preston and play food critic. Whatever. The page is blank.
No lines.

I'll let you know how it goes!

Wow, fab idea! We used A6 postcards at our wedding, with a little design that we used on our wedding stationary around the edges, and invited people to leave a message, write a poem (we got some awesome song lyrics too) or draw a picture. Our guests did some amazing things and these cards are some of our most prized wedding possessions. Reading through them all on our wedding night was amazing. xx
