One of the highlights of our DIY wedding was a photo guest book idea I borrowed from this fantastic site
In place of a little book with signatures, our bride and groom will have a book full of pictures of their guests giving them personal messages written on a chalkboard. We also provided props, for those interested in using them. I was a little worried that guests wouldn't be too excited about doing it, but that wasn't the case at all.
Here are a few photos from our wedding. It was fun to see all the encrypted messages- via inside jokes, or other languages (any else translating the Albanian??):
We were very happy with how it all turned out. Next, we'll upload the photos to an online printing company and have it made into a leather bound book.
