A wedding guest book is often described as being a book that collects signatures from all of the guests that you have invited to your wedding. But the real truth is that a wedding guest book can do so much more than that! As most married couples can tell you, the wedding guest book is one of their most prized mementos from the day they got married. This is because most guests take the time to write a celebratory and congratulatory note along with their signature, so the book is ultimately more than just an over-sized sign-in page; it's a collection of praise, congratulations, thoughts and words of wisdom that are designed specifically for the newly married couple.
You should definitely include a wedding guest book with your wedding plans. They're relatively inexpensive, and they offer many options for designs and colors, so really, there is no reason why you shouldn't have one. They are generally quite affordable and thoughtfully illustrated, so you'll be able to have a great looking book for your wedding. Best of all, their solid colors and plain design ensure that they will fit right in with whatever wedding theme you have in mind. And of course, your wedding planner or wedding designer can provide you with numerous options for customizing your wedding guest book, should you choose to do so.
A wedding guest book may be low on the list of priorities in terms of what you purchase for your wedding and when, but you will still want to make sure that you have an adequate amount of time to look into the purchase of one. Depending on the size of the book you need and what kind of customizations you would like to add to it, you may find that you'll need a bit more time to wait for its design and printing. With that said, contact your wedding planner for a list of companies and designers that produce wedding guest books. Make sure to specify if you would like to have any special features for your wedding guest book, as this will certainly add some time to the timeframe it will generally take to produce a book.
Another word of wisdom: order special ink pens to go along with your wedding guest book! High quality ink will make for nicer signatures and notes, and it'll last a lot longer than standard ballpoint pen ink.
