I had to laugh to myself a little when I got to my friends wedding reception and went to sign in the wedding guest book she had selected. It was Cinderella's carriage being pulled by white horses in a raised resin figure heading up toward the castle. It was absolutely perfect for the wedding she wanted in the princess theme and definitely made a statement to her guests as to what they could expect with the details of the reception. The best part about this book is that everything in it will last a lifetime and trigger some wonderful memories when you look back through it.
The bride and groom want the opportunity to look back at all the names and comments from each of these special friends and family from this day. This documentation is a reflection of how their guests felt and a memory of how special the day was to them as well. There are several options available to have these collectible books fit into the decor or theme you have selected for the day. The wedding guest book can certainly enhance the 'style' of the wedding. If you are having a formal evening event then the black tie on the book or the black and white vintage bouquet on the cover may fit your function. For the Valentines bride or one that has selected a romance theme, then perhaps a striking red to compliment some other accessories and flowers, or the clean white book with small heart charms on the cover and a pen set to match.
The wedding guest book is not necessarily a white book that says 'guests', it's a lasting memory from your wedding day. The detail on the outside can be based on your colors or the theme for the day and will be a reminder of those special details you agonized over for months leading up to the wedding. Don't overlook the small detail and the wedding guest book being the item invited guests will see first can really make an impact and show your attention to all the details.
