Today's Wedding Wednesday topic is of the Guest variety. As I've mentioned, our wedding is small. Under 20 people small. So with that, while we're still having a "wedding", we're skimping on some things. Such as the guest book and invites. It's not that we don't think these are good ideas. We debated the guest book idea... but in the end, we thought whatever we chose would end up looking pretty empty. And let's be honest, how often would we look at a guest book? If we opted for something to display, how long would we display it for? So, with that being said, we decided that the photos we'll be taking throughout the event will be our true guestbook.
I love the idea of a polaroid guest book. I actually have this camera, so it would be super fun to use in some other way throughout the day. I'll maybe just leave it on a table for people to take various photos.
Love the idea of a platter. I'd want to actually use it though, and I'd probably be too scared to in case it would break...
Wood... Both of these are so fun, and has that warmth to it that comes with everything wood. Again, how long we would display it for would be the question, but love both ideas!
If we were having a big wedding, and lots of guests from out of town, this globe idea is definitely what I would go for. How unique is it?? And it's actually something I would display, well, forever!
And my last and absolute favourite guest book idea: writing on vinyl. This was actually what we were going to do in the brief moments we were opting for a guest book. It's a small enough area, that even with a few guests, it wouldn't look too empty. In all honesty, I love this idea so much, I may have to do it.
Next up: Invitations! Again, with less than 20 people, that would only mean approximately 10 invitations. It seemed kind of pointless. However, these were a few of my favourite styles that I found...
Love the idea of using various fonts, in just a few colours... and a wax seal?? LOVE! I'd feel so glamorous using one! While we opted to not have invitations, I did take it upon myself to make some Save the Dates. Not that I didn't think our immediate family guests would forget our wedding, but more so because, honestly, I like receiving them. I like receiving any mail that isn't a bill. So, I thought a little Save the Date would be fun and appreciated. If you're one of our guests, be on the lookout for yours soon!
