Wedding Memories....

Evening bloggers - I hope you're all getting back to normal after all of the lovely long weekends we've just had! I'm still getting used to being back in work after 11 days off -  It takes me at least 2 weeks back in work to get up to pace!

 

Tonight I thought I'd share a Wedding Memories Book I've done for a Wedding a friend is attending at the weekend - I am quite happy that no-one will see it here so couldn't wait to share!!!



 
I got the idea of these Memory Books when, at the end of last year, another friend said she was going to a very small wedding (only a dozen people) but wanted to give the couple something they could look back on.
I came up with this variation on a Guest Book.
I hate the thought of people writing directly into a 'guest book' (a little OCD there me thinks!) so I included Die Cut cards for the guests to write on - that way the book would be kept neat. This then evolved into a 'kit' for the bride to decorate the pages with once she's added the cards.


When I took this first Wedding Memories Book into work I had orders for more - and they were for big Weddings! The kit and what's included has changed each time as I think of other things that would work well - I now included a gift card with the kit explaining to the couple what the bits are for and include some decorating ideas.


 
Here's a couple more pics...






I still have loads of ideas to try and include in these books and everyone who orders them says how nice it is that everyone of them is so different - not just in how they look but everything that's included!





I'd like to enter my Wedding Memories Book into the following challenges...
