POLAROID WEDDING GUESTBOOK
This custom handmade wedding guestbook was created for a lace-inspired, vintage-themed wedding. The couple wanted the guests to be able to snap polaroids of each other and then leave a message in the same book. I designed a modern wedding guestbook with hints of vintage that now doubles as a photo album of their big day.
The color scheme was inspired by the hand-drawn wedding invitation, which was cropped and mounted on the first page of the book to set the theme in place. The finished book measures 7.5" x 5.75" and is hand stitched in the Coptic style, an Ethiopian binding that dates back to the 4th century. This wedding guestbook features light pink hand glued book covers, a cream lace closure with a hand sewn bow, natural Stonehenge pages, rose printed end sheets and coordinating scalloped spine protecters, envelopes for safekeeping handwritten notes from each guest, mounted photo corners spaced for PIC 300 polaroids, and a beautiful exposed spine that allows the book to lie flat when open.

WEDDING GUESTBOOK FAQ
Will you make my wedding guestbook?
I would be honored to! Wedding guestbooks are available on a case by case basis via custom order. All of my books are made with meticulous attention to detail and are frequently described as unique, charming, romantic, and whimsical. I focus on creating high quality, long lasting, heirloom pieces. If you are familiar with the aesthetic of my work and you like what you see, then we will probably be a great match.
How far in advance should I contact you?
I recommend contacting me about 6-10+ weeks before your wedding date. Sooner is always better than later, as I often have a queue of projects planned a few months in advance. This time frame allows for us to discuss details and for me to source, order, or make any special materials required.
What does your process look like?
Each of my handmade books begins with a client questionnaire. I will assess and evaluate the goals of the project, then send a detailed project description and price quote with a deadline. From there, I create the ideal guestbook for your wedding, photograph it to share in my portfolio, and ship it to you. I maintain frequent contact and provide progress photos to each of my clients which ensures a smooth experience for both of us.
How do I know you'll make something I'll like?
Because you've already read this far! People come to me for one-of-a-kind handmade books because they like what they've seen me make in the past. All of my books are created to fit each client's unique goals. Based on our initial conversations and my client questionnaire, I use a time tested process to create the perfect wedding guestbook. I am very open and methodical throughout the planning phase so that you know what to expect every step of the way.
