Wedding Wednesday: Guest book DIY (Part1)

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

After searching high and low for the right type of scrapbook, I finally found what I was looking for at Deserre's art store. I was wandering around for hours looking at everything trying to decide on a theme for the guest book. I wanted to keep it very simple yet classy so I picked a neutral colour palette of ivory and gold. Here's what I've got so far.
 
Standard black ringed scrapbook
Gather necessary supplies such as paper and adhesives. Decide on a theme or style to tie into your wedding theme in order to keep everything cohesive.
  
I decided to use our engagement photos as a way to tie into our wedding. When choosing photos for your guest book, be sure to group like photos together to create a story throughout the book.
Decide on a layout for your photos that is appealing for your guests to look through, but don't forget to leave enough space for them to leave you messages as well.
I decided to add my own paper to the inside front and back covers as a formal way to start and finish off the book.
 Measure out the exact size of the book cover and cut and paste thoroughly.
 
That's all for now since I am taking my time. Sorry but you'll have to check back next week to see the end result. Lastly, cheers to my first outfit of the Fall Challenge. 
Top & Pants: Forever 21
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Airwalk
