Regrettably, we must postpone our spectacular Mothers of Brides and Grooms Event that was scheduled for June 14. Our speaker has been called out of town so we must reschedule. Please check back often as we will post the new date and time here, on Facebook and on our website once it is determined. Thank you very much for your interest in this wonderful opportunity! We will continue providing fun and educational special events on a variety of wedding topics and look forward to seeing you soon!
Always looking for fun and sweet alternatives to the traditional guest book for capturing sentimental messages from your guests, we simply adore these fun book ideas! While these are perfect for bibliophiles, you don’t have to be a book lover to embrace these special mementos.
Start your marriage armed with timeless advice from the Bible, selected for you by your wedding guests. Friends and family can highlight or mark verses to encourage you in your marriage and sign the book as a precious keepsake.
A vintage dictionary makes a wonderful option in which your guests can sign and highlight or circle words to describe you and your fiancé or words that will remind you of your beautiful wedding day. The dictionary doesn’t have to be vintage; a beautiful new edition will do the trick as well!

The Classic Love Story (Novel)
Classic romance novels such as Pride and Prejudice or Jane Eyre are full of memorable quotes celebrating love. Invite your guests to choose a passage to circle or highlight that they feel will touch your heart or encourage you, or one that they think relates to you two. Make sure they sign it too, so you’ll know whom to thank for the sweet notion!
Browning, Keats, Shakespeare, Neruda, Dickinson…we have been blessed with some gorgeous poetry extolling love. Why not use a lovely hardbound book of love poems for your guest book? Your guests can sign it and mark a poem that they feel exemplifies you as a couple. Or have them assign a date for you to read a specific poem together during your first year of marriage.
We hope you enjoy these ideas and that maybe they’ll encourage you to think way beyond “the usual” when it comes to preserving special wishes from your wedding guests! Let us know what guest books options you are considering.
It’s been a while since we shared one of our beautiful weddings with you! Valerie and Michael’s gorgeous wedding saturated with rich color reminds us why purple continues to be such a HOT color for weddings! Let us know what you think!
