Capturing the Moment With Wood-Covered Wedding Guest Books
Taking that first step into forever with the love of your life is a cause worth celebrating. What’s a celebration without your nearest and dearest friends and family? You and your partner are uniting, joining families and social circles. A wedding guest book makes for an excellent keepsake for you and your partner, capturing the love and well wishes of your favorite people on your very special day.
Having a guest book allows your loved ones to share their blessings and kind thoughts for your union. Often the book is presented on a table outside the wedding venue or reception, providing a record of all who attended. There usually isn’t enough time for everyone to offer well wishes in a ceremony or reception program so that guests can add their words of wisdom to the book. Some people can include their contact information which is helpful when sending thank you cards for gifts and more. An open guestbook is symbolic of hearts open to all the promises of the journey ahead.
Make It Personal
Just as your marriage celebration includes personal touches from the décor to the menu, your guest book should be something that reflects your tastes. Your guest book should feature your names and other visual elements inspired by your union. Choose a book that complements your wedding theme or color palette. It should also be something that encourages your friends and family to be wholly personal in their words of love and wisdom. Include photos of your guests to accompany each entry. This is a keepsake, and it should capture the day visually and emotionally.
Knock on Wood
Guest books come in all shapes and sizes, but consider one made from wood for your nuptials. Wood is an element found in nature that is also foundational to our lives. It symbolizes strength and longevity, two positive themes associated with marriage bonds. Wood also conveys a sense of home and family, symbolic of your future as a couple. It’s a versatile material that works with almost any design scheme or palette, classic or contemporary.
