Wedding Photo Guestbook

DIY Photo/Journal Wedding Guestbook
DIY Wedding Guestbook {Breezy Pink Daisies}
Today I'm going to share with you my Wedding Guestbook. It was awesome, and so not normal (I love not being normal!) I wanted something fun, something I would want to look through in the future. I loved the ones by the Guestbook Store...but didn't want to pay that much for one - and I wanted a place for our guests to put their own picture. Here's what the expensive one from the Guestbook Store looks like:
So, I created my own pages to be printed off on an 8x8 piece of paper that guests would fill out. They had a spot to write their name, how they knew us, and anything else that they wanted to say. There was also a place for their picture. Here's what mine looked like:

I printed my pages on colorful thick paper that I had gotten on clearance at Michael's because at the time, white just seemed so boring! White would have been a cheaper choice though, as all the refill page protectors came with white sheets in them anyway!

So guests stopped by the guestbook table at the reception and filled out a page! I love how it turned out! Our photographer had a booth set up later in the night where (most) guests got their picture taken to be added in the book later.

I got the scrapbook at Michael's with a 40% off coupon. I also got extra pages with 40% off coupons! I don't have an exact price, but I'll give you an estimate

Scrapbook with 40% off coupon - $8
3 packs of Fancy Colored Paper on clearance - $6
5 sets of 10 Refill pages w/ coupons - $13
Pictures - Free at Walgreens
Ink to print pictures - Free (used my Dad's printer! And it didn't take up too much ink)

Total estimated cost: $27
Here's what it looks like now that it is all complete! LOVE!

    1. Thanks for pinning! :) I would love to share!!! However, the one I made has our names and our date on it but if you (or anyone else) would like it I could recreate it with your names/date for maybe $2?
