How-To Tuesday: DIY Bookish Bridal Guestbook

The most beautiful thing that all modern weddings have in common? Every couple has its own style. Some are into color coordinated soirees, others want their big day to be a destination wedding, and others simply just want to put their touch on a traditional ceremony. So for those book loving couples, we have the perfect way to put your personal touch on your wedding. Instead of literally having a guestbook at your wedding, design this typography inspired guestbook that you can later hang up in your home as a constant reminder of your beautiful day. This project, while not overly challenging, does take a fair bit of work, so be sure to plan to make this well in advance of your wedding.
