Wedding Guest Book Ideas

from Real Simple Weddings
3 • 12 • 2013  |  Tips & Inspiration
Sometimes the last thing on a brides mind is the Guest Book. Most tell me they do not want the traditional book with lines that guests just sign their names on, and something that they can keep and possibly display in their new home. There are lots of ideas out there, but thisReal Simple article shows quite a few options for you to consider.
I even have our guest book hung in our dining room, it was just a large matted frame with our invitation in the middle, and guests signed all around it. I took it back to the frame shop after the wedding so they could put the glass over it, and now we have a great piece for our walls, and it always is fun to look at all the notes from our friends and family.
Whatever you choose, try to at least consider a few options before you get within the final month of the wedding. There are too many to-do items at that time, and it can get lost in the shuffle of all the other details, so give yourself enough time to execute the type of guest book you would want. 
 
Cheers,

Wedding Websites

the more information you can give to guests, the better!
3 • 4 • 2013  |  Tips & Inspiration
One of my first suggestions to couples that have just started planning their wedding is to start a wedding website. It is the best way to get information about the wedding to guests without being offensive. They can choose to go to it or not, but if you are having an adult reception, have special room rates, or shuttle services, this is a great place to list all the information. You can also have your links to your registries on there as well, which guests do appreciate when they don't have to search them out or call a family member to find it.
This article on Marta Stewart Weddings is a great way to get you started. While there are many options out there for websites, I used Wedding Jojo as well for my wedding a little over a year ago. The main reasons: 1) their templates were more in line with what I wanted, and 2) they allowed you to pay a monthly fee to have a specific domain of whatever you wanted, rather than the company's website with a backslash and then your names. I was really happy with their site, and the ease of uploading all the information. 
 
I would definitely look into setting one up if you haven't already, and do your research, you may find ones that even match your save the dates or invitations out there. 
 
Cheers,
