My husband and I wanted our wedding to be different from the masses and we spent a lot of time thinking about how we could do things different than the other weddings we’d been to.  When it came to our guest book there were a lot of different options we talked through.  We considered having people sign a large wooden chair, signing rocks, post cards.. you name it and we thought about it.  What we decided on was an Advice book.

We decided to take a scrap book and fill it with blank cards and envelopes then ask people to write some sort of advice on how to “live happily ever after.”

Supplies Needed:

  • Scrap book
  • Scrap book paper
  • Blank cards with envelopes
  • Rubber cement

First: We decided how we wanted the pages to look with the envelopes.

Second: We used rubber cement to glue the envelopes to the scrap book paper.

Third: We used more rubber cement to glue the scrap book paper to the plastic sheets in the book.

And we were done!

We decided to make a little sign to tell people what they should be doing with that book aka writing a piece of advice.  On the day of wedding we put the note cards in one of the wine box frames that we made but it looked like a perfect box of note cards.

People would choose a note card, write a little something on it and then slip it in an empty envelope.  It was perfect and different 🙂
