DIY Wedding Guest Book

This project has been one of my favorite wedding DIYs so far!

I got the idea from the Etsy shop Suzy Shoppe .  So, if you are a bride-to-be and love this idea but do not have a ton of time I would recommend going there to get your guest book, because this was actually very time consuming!

Even though I had to put a lot of time into punching and folding and measuring and gluing these little hearts, I just love how it turned out!!


I bought the square frame from Michael's on sale for about $15 dollars.  The inset was 12 x 12 inches so it was the perfect size for scrapbook paper. I bought a textured silver paper for the base and used left over shiny silver paper from my paper cones for my pew decor to punch out all the little hearts. 


On one hot pink heart I put our names and the date of the wedding <3




I'm so happy with how it turned out! There are 100 hearts and we have 100 people exactly coming to the wedding, so everyone will have a spot to write their name!

I still have a few more projects to share for the wedding. We'll see if I get them all up before hand though...may have to wait until after.  I've just been occasionally bursting into tears lately planning and doing everything for this wedding alone! The wedding is in 16 DAYS! Argh!! I know everything will get done but I'm just not quite sure at this point, lol!

Anyway. Lots of love. I'll pull myself together over here...hopefully soon!

I'll be linking up to these parties:

  1. Oh my gosh!
    That is so adorable! I got married forever ago when nobody did anything by hand. And now I want to divorce my husband just so that I can remarry him again to be able to make things like this for the event!

    You did a great job. :)

  6. That is super cute! My sister in law is getting married in October, this would be so cute for her. I'm thinking it's going to be a small wedding where something like this would be perfect. I am going to pass this on to her. And I'm with Lesley, although it has only been 4 years for me, I keep seeing some cute ideas and secretly wish I was planning my wedding too, Lesley you could always renew your vows. :)

  12. You'll get the important things done - and this project turned out great! It's funny - we spend so much time, agony, and yes - tears - planning our weddings. Now, 7 years later, I have so many far more vivid memories than my wedding day!

  17. Wow! I'm getting married in 18 weeks, and I am a new follower!! Definitely 'borrowing' (read: stealing) this idea!

    Deep breaths, and remember: if anything goes wrong on wedding day, it just makes for a good story later!

  18. How lovely to attach your wedding date to it! I did something similar inspired by Etsy as well, but it means so much more when you associate it with an occasion that's memorable for you!

  20. This is so adorable!!! I'm getting married in June and saw a guest book like this on Etsy recently. How did it work out for your wedding? And if you don't mind my asking, what size heart punch did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anonymous, it worked out well for the wedding! and I believe my heart punch was about 1x1 inch, maybe 1.5 but not bigger than that

    deliver practical tactics via

    your web blog and therefore

    boost

    response from other individuals on this article so my simple princess is really

    being taught a lot of things. Enjoy the remaining portion of the new year. You're performing a

  28. I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this specific issue and it really does offer us a
    lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, through everything that I

    have experienced, I only

    trust when other reviews pile on that people today stay

    on issue and in no way get started upon a tirade of the news of the day.

    All the same, thank you for this

    exceptional piece and whilst I do not agree with this
    in totality, I value

    your standpoint.
