Our Guestbook..

I never really gave much thought to our guestbook, or where you tell us how much you love us and how ultra-fab our wedding is. =)

I love love love love love love (one more 'love' for good measure) this new idea floating around the interwebs:

But, I am saddened to say that I did not purchase the Mary Poppins upgrade in my luggage. So that (above) has no way of fitting in this:

Unless they invent folding wood. Which slightly defeats the purpose.

One day, I got a email (not suprisingly) from MyPublisher. They were offering $30 off any book. And then, LIGHTBULB MOMENT! I can make a guest book using our engagement pictures! I uploaded, cropped, and typed for days on end (read: 1 hour) and sent my creation to MyPublisher to turn my conconction to a real

We received it the other day, and Oh.My.Gosh. Love. It's completely awesome. Oh you want pics? I guess I will oblige..

They read my mind.

The cover. If I were able to rely better on my moment freezing skills, you would be able to see our names and wedding date in the bottom left hand corner.

We chose to add some quotes that relate to love every few pages.

I say 'relate' because not all our quotes are lovey, per se. I let Chris pick his favorite movie quote, and this is what he gave me:

"Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing."
It completely fits us. I think it's kinda silly too, anyone at our wedding will read that and nod their head (side to side, not up and down), a chuckle a little.

We left a lot of white space to give everyone room to write their innermost ponderings about us, and whatever else they would like to write (or draw) about. But if I suddenly grow devil horns in a picture, they will wish that they could jump into a Mary Poppins bag. =D

Lastly, just to give you all an idea about how huge this thing actually is, I took a picture of it next to the standard magazine size "Brides". I can't wait to see what people write in here for us!!

What are you planning on using as your guest'book'?


  1. First off, I loveeee your luggage, so cute!
    Secondly, your guest book looks so cool. I plan on doing the same thing for our guest book. I love the notebook quote you guys included!

  2. That's such a great photo book! I was going to do a similar thing but my mom is making us a quilt for the wedding so I am going to have people sign the back of it...

    I think...

    Great book though :D
