guestbooks: Adesso Polaroid Albums

Your Guestbook can be a great way to collect thoughts, well wishes, advice and/or pictures of your guests. The guestbook we used gave our guests a chance to do all of that (& anything else they could think of!), so I wanted to share the details...

We bought 2 Polaroid Albums from Adesso Albums... I am so happy with how they turned out! What's cool about these albums is that they have a space where you slide the picture in from the top or bottom of the page. If you tried to paste polaroids into a normal scrapbook, the extra thickness would make the book not close completely- here you don't have that problem, which makes the finished product look so much nicer.

We had 150 people at our wedding and having 2 books ended up being just the right size. We had 2 polaroid cameras & put a couple family friends in charge of taking pictures before dinner (during the cocktail hour). They then started putting the pictures into the album so people would see how it worked and reminded our guests to find their picture & sign by it. We got so many great comments, pictures, drawings... so much more personal than just signatures alone!

In the picture above you can see the front cover (has a space for a picture in it too... we put our invitation in the window) what the inside looks like. We also got the personalized name plates & put them on the spine, and the Slip Case holds both of our finished albums.

I know I thought it was a cute idea, but it's hard when you haven't heard a first-hand account of what the product was like, so hopefully this helps to inspire or help make the decision for some of you!

i heart weddings,
