    Our package comes with one so pro. I'm just hoping it doesn't look like a generic funeral guest book looking thing lol

    We aren't having a guest book. We don't even know what to do with it after.

    We are doing a photo booth guestbook where guests are encouraged to take a picture with a polaroid camera in our booth, and then add it to the book and sign it. We found a photoalbum at a local thrift store that the pictures will fit right into nicely, with little lines off to the side for notes where guests can sign. I am changing the picture on the front of the album to a picture of my FH and I, and then adding the wording "guestbook" to the cover.

    This one we went pro... I knew I wouldn't have time to make it the way I wanted. She customized it in our colours and did the inside exactly how we wanted. We put engagement pics in the first third of the book for people to sign around, and we'll add wedding pictures later.

    Doing something similar! Bought a black paged photo album, and going to have plenty of film, I have metallic markers, and I will have little envelopes included as well so if they don't want to add a picture, they can give us a sweet little note!
