This is exciting! I get to share one of my favorite things that came out of our wedding: the guest book. There are so many ways to handle a guest book, and we sure thought about a bunch of different ones, but ultimately Sarah had the idea of using postcards.
We already established postcards as a theme element with our embroidered save-the-dates and table numbers. After the collection phase, we realized we had quite a few surplus postcards that were really cool but that wouldn’t work for embroidering purposes. So we decided to put those extra postcards to use! We put stamps on all of them, addressed them to ourselves (using our custom address stamp), and displayed them in a rotating postcard tree on our “Welcome Wagon” table. Our guests were then instructed to pick their favorite, write us a little note, and mail it back to us when they got home or arrived at some other glamorous destination!
These are just a few of the ones we’ve received so far, and they’re still trickling in. Getting postcards is so much fun!
P.S. If you were one of our beloved wedding guests, but didn’t see or forgot to grab a postcard, please let us know! We’d love to send you one… perhaps with the Thank You card that we are late to mail to you…
