Check In, Check Out

I don’t know what to think about the guest book, as a concept. I’m a very visual person (have to see it, have to touch it) so I like things in writing, books, pictures, stuff. A guest book with pictures seems like the perfect place to write something nice – and bonus, it’s there to read later. But it’s also a lot of pressure, as a guest, to come up with the perfect thing to say after you’ve already exhausted yourself on the card.


So while I love the stuff aspect of our photo guestbook, I have to admit that I don’t think our guests will care so much. For them it’s the last trial before the bar.

Still, I am in love with the stuff, story of my closets. Silver tray from my grandma, picture frame from Kim, thrifted crystal frippery, Blurb book of engagement pictures (still needing library pockets), and library checkout cards for notes.

Do you feel differently about the guestbook as a guest than as a bride? Did you do anything to make it more interesting for your guests?
