Well, I’ve done it again. I’ve gone on another Etsy discovering adventure, and I am, as always, excited by my find. This time I was not looking for jewelry. Instead, I was looking for guest books – one of the smallest yet most important details of a wedding. While searching, I found many traditional items, such as books to be filled with signatures and sentiments, but then I came across what I like to call guest book art.
Andie from JavaJaneDesigns creates guest book signature frames by combining individual pictures taking the form of letters or numbers surrounded by white matting and encased by a black or white frame. When compiled together, the photos mesh to spell out a couple’s last name or the date they were married. Everything about the guest book signature frame can be customized. You can choose the font you would like the pictures to depict (maybe you would like your pictures to have a boxier font rather than the swirls pictured above), as well as the size, style, and color of the frame.
As guests arrive at your wedding, instead of signing a book, they sign the matting surrounding the pictures. Like a guest book, you will still be able to read the warm wishes people write. However, you are sure to look at your guest book signature frame far more often because it can serve as art in your home, which makes the cost ($149) that much more worthwhile.
After the last song is played at your wedding reception signaling the end to a wonderful day, you will have a piece of personalized art to hang on the wall of your home. Pictures + personalized notes = a unique (and multi-purpose!) guest book by JavaJaneDesings. Another great find.
*Note: In my opinion, this guest book signature frame may also serve as a great bridal shower or wedding gift!
