Wedding Series Day 4: Guest Book

Happy Hump day to you! :) :) I hope your week is going well so far. Mine has been extremely busy, but that only means the weekend will get here faster! I'm so excited to share more from our wedding with you. Today, I have our guest book and fingerprint tree to share.

I designed a sweet and simple sign for the guest book table using My Digital Studio. I failed to mention on our stationary, I designed my own Designer Series Paper in MDS using my favorite love poems and beautiful scrolls from the Creative Elements Digital Download, printed it, and stamped it with the Layered Labels stamp set. I used this "paper" as the background on our signs. You can also see it on the above Wedding Series "logo." Anyhow, the sign has our wedding monogram, and simple instructions for the guest book. 

As you can see from the sign, we had two guest "books." I really wanted to do a fingerprint tree as a guest book, but I didn't really care for people to sign their name on their print. I ultimately decided to do an actual book for people to sign as well as the tree for them to "leaf" their print. 

My sweet friend Sam designed the tree for us, and even carved our initials in the trunk. The initial in the tree came in handy when thinking of a unity ceremony. I wanted to do something different, not the usual sand or candles. I thought of the great idea to put our prints on the tree in the shape of a heart during our ceremony. I thought it was a pretty fab idea myself! However, I failed to go over the "instructions" with Lovely beforehand, and he put his print off to the side. But that is ok! I still think it turned out great! We used Wild Wasabi ink for the guests prints and Melon Mambo ink for ours. We now have it displayed in our living room, and the colors match perfectly in there (I'll be showing you more of our home next week)!

Along with the tree, we did a guest book using our engagement pictures, because, of course, I couldn't have just any old guest book! I designed the book in MDS, and left tons of blank space for people to sign.

The book turned out perfectly, and I love that we've made more than one use out of it... We have a book of pictures AND well wishes all in one place! It has also made for the perfect coffee table book!

I also have a picture of our guest book table in the reception area, and you can get a little peak out our decor!
