Vintage Postcard Wedding Guest Book…

Hey there…we hope that y’all are enjoying our wedding recaps :) Even though the wedding was just three short weeks ago, we love taking this visual trip down memory lane! Today we are showcasing the wedding guest book. We knew that we didn’t want a traditional book for our guests to sign their names in. We wanted something that was more interactive for our guests and meaningful for us. By meaningful, you know I meant vintage, right?

On Etsy I found this vendor  – Bursts of Creativity – who had 100 unused, vintage postcards collected from all over the world. Perfect!

Instead of the traditional guestbook, we decided to use vintage postcards for wedding guests to write sentiments on the back.I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. Our guests could peruse the postcards and select which card they would like to write there sentiments on. Aren’t these designs details beautiful?

After the guest wrote congratulatory well wishes on their postcard of choice, they placed it in these vintage drawers…

We love reading each card over and over again…

We think the graphics on the backs of the cards are just as pretty…

Our guests really liked our guest book idea. We love that our guests wrote such heartfelt wishes that we can keep for a lifetime! Thanks for letting me share a bit more about our special day. We will share more with you this week :)
