Guestbooks. You are supposed to have one for your guests to sign at your wedding, a register of who was there. But you usually don't pull them out after the wedding. They get tucked away. So I thought I'd go along with the trend and make ours something a little more interesting. We didn't have a lot of money to spend on it, so that limited what we could do to a point. We also have some really nice engagement photos we wanted to print and keep, and so I decided to combine the guestbook with a sort of photo-album with them in it.

Album/book from the Martha Stewart Collection at Michael's : $5.00 on sale
Archival pages with velum overlays (to go in the book) : $10.00 (for 2 sets)
Printing of photos : about $24.00 including tax from Pictage through our photographer
This past weekend, my sisters came over and we put it all together. I didn't have an exact "vision" for the guestbook - it's ultimately going to be more of a photo album and scrapbook (I'll end up also putting an invitation in there, a program, and some other things) - so I told my sisters that without putting too much stuff on the page, they could do whatever they wanted. It's not fancy, but it was fun to make and it's special because we all 3 did it together.
