Guestbook Alternatives

I personally don't like traditional guestbooks. I like the idea of having something new, creative, and innovative in place of just an album. One of my favorite places to look for things is Etsy. I've found so many interesting options there for guestbooks.

Here are some of my favorites:

I especially like the wishing well because it's something that can be displayed in your home. Illustrations and puzzle pieces can be hung up on your wall and post cards can be included in a collage or photo album as with memories of the wedding and who attended.

My Love Affair with Jenny Packham

A few months ago, my wedding planner emailed me and told me of a wedding dress designer she would sure I would love. Her name was Jenny Packham and she made beautiful vintage- glam dresses. She was right! I loved so many of her dresses but unfortunately, it was out of my budget. However,  I still love to browse so many of her dresses for the pure eye candy :)

There's something special about a black and white photo that color just can't do justice to.

I admit, I love sparkles! And the back of this dress- wow!

Stunning. If I had a lot of money, I'd buy everything she made and do a wedding anniversary every month :)
