A wedding not only celebrates the devotion of the couple getting married, but also the incredible love felt by and for the family and friends in the bride’s and groom’s lives.
In addition to the privilege of witnessing the exchange of vows, a wedding guest also has the opportunity to express their own feelings for the newlyweds. Why not capture these emotions in mementos that can become at least home décor… and at most a family heirloom?
We encourage you to think outside the traditional (read: boring) guestbook! Check out the DIY projects below for ways to immortalize wedding wishes into tokens of love.
We love this Greek-themed centerpiece idea: guests at each table write their wishes for the couple onto cards, which are then hung from the wreath of flowers. Opa!
Sentiment and pragmatism blend together perfectly in this recipe for a unique wedding memento: guests write their message for the couple onto wood, which can later (after a super strong finishing glaze is added) be used as a cutting board.
There are countless ways to allow guests to take pen to paper (or wood, or rock, or…) and express how they feel. We hope this post helps you find what feels right for you!
