Wedding guestbooks have come so far since the days of signing pages in a large book that nobody really looked at after the wedding. The term “guestbook” is used loosely these days to encompass all of the many creative ways you can have your wedding guests sign their names on a keepsake that you will treasure and display in your home. Here are a few of our favorite guestbook ideas for your wedding. For more wedding ideas or to learn about having the wedding of your dreams at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, visit our website.
Simple Initials- Purchase a large wooden letter of the initial of your (soon-to-be) last name, paint it and ask your guests to sign it. No matter where you display it, you’ll always look at it and be reminded of that joyous day in your life.
Rustic Keepsake Box- Create your own rustic keepsake box (or purchase one) and display it at your reception along with blank postcards. Ask your guests two write a message to you on a postcard and place it in the box. On your first anniversary, you can re-live the wedding by reading the postcards together.
Signature Tree/Fingerprint Tree Wall Art- For those of us who are artistically challenged, there are many places on Etsy where you can purchase wall art for your guests to sign. This personalized signature tree is one of our favorites. Another option is to create a fingerprint tree (with the fingerprints as the leaves). Each guest makes a fingerprint for a leaf of the tree which creates a stunningly unique piece of artwork to display in your home.
Create a Personalized Guestbook with Photos of the Couple- Use the popular photo site Shutterfly.com to create your personalized guestbook complete with fill in the blanks and lots of space for your guests to write you well wishes!
Rustic Sign- Create your own or purchase a wooden sign-either something personalized or with a quote printed on it. Ask your guests to sign the artwork for you to display in your home!

We’ve all heard of “pregnancy brain” but many brides swear that while planning their wedding, they had “wedding brain.” With so much to do leading up to and on one of the most important days of your life, it’s no wonder many brides forget a thing or two! Here are the top 5 things that brides often overlook-and how you can be sure this doesn’t happen to you.
5. Break in your shoes: You searched high and low for months to find the most amazing pair of shoes to go with your dress…but after the 2nd hour in your dream shoes (and dress), your feet are killing you. By the time your feet are hurting, the only thing you can do is take off the shoes for a bit or be a trooper and suffer through the pain. Do yourself a favor and break in those dream shoes before your big day! Wear them for a few hours around the house every day to ensure that your feet are happy!
4. For outdoor weddings, remember the sunscreen: Our ocean front location means that we have many couples who tie the knot outside. Ceremonies can range from short and sweet to lengthy. No matter how long your ceremony is, be kind to your skin and apply sun screen before you get dressed. Task one of your bridesmaids with bringing sunscreen to re-apply if the weather or sun warrants it. This tip goes not just for you but for the wedding party and your guests. If you are having an outdoor wedding (especially in the afternoon), have a sunscreen station or hand out sunscreen favors to your guests so they don’t burn!
3. Don’t do anything drastic: We all want to look perfect on our wedding day. In an effort to do so, many brides make plans to dye or cut their hair, try a spray tan for the first time or get a facial just days before they say “I do.” This can result in disaster and many women have heard horror stories about what can go wrong (or lived through it). If you want to treat yourself to a facial, do so 3 or 4 weeks prior to the wedding. If you are thinking of drastically changing your hair style, don’t! Just wait until after you get married. The last thing you want is for you to not like your new style and to be stuck looking at it in wedding photos for years to come. And that spray tan you’ve always wanted but never tried? Try it out a month or two before your wedding to make sure it will look ok. Then, re-apply a few days before the wedding.
2. Eat: With so much going on, many brides lose track of time and forget to eat. Ask your maid of honor or wedding planner to have non-messy finger food available for you throughout the day. The last thing you want to happen is for guests to hear your stomach growling while you say “I do.”
1. Make it official: Pack up the marriage license the night before the wedding. Double and triple-check to make sure you have it. Also, remember to have the officiant sign the document afterwards. You’d be surprised how many couples forget this very important paper.
Fall is such a fun time to have a wedding. You can use vibrant colors in your bouquet & bridesmaid dresses and there are some delicious fall foods (hello pumpkin!). Here are some of our picks to provide you with inspiration for a fall wedding.
Although it can be the happiest day of your life, your wedding can also cause a lot of stress. From the moment he proposes, to the moment you say “I do,” there is a lot of planning to do-and a fair amount of stress along the way. Here are our tips on lessening the stress while you are planning for the happiest day of your life.
Hire A Wedding Planner- A wedding planner will help you in so many ways. They have built relationships with many businesses so they know who is trustworthy and does a great job…and who does not. The planner will give you back something that many people lose when planning their own wedding-TIME.
Set A Budget- Setting a budget early on can help you plan more efficiently. It is important to make sure that you and your significant other (along with whomever else will be paying for the wedding) are on the same page with the budget and expenses. Prioritize the really important items for you and your spouse so you have a good starting point. Once you have set a budget, be sure to stick to it. Remember that you have a budget for a reason! This will save you a lot of stress.
Ask for Help- Often in life, we find ourselves in over our heads because we did not ask for-or accept help that was offered. When it comes to a big life event like your wedding, if someone offers you help, take it and delegate! Your close family and friends really won’t mind giving you a helping hand for your big day and you won’t be as stressed out!
Treat Yourself- Set aside a little time and money to get away with your fiancee for a weekend or to spend the day at a spa. Many couples get so caught up in planning the wedding that they forget to spend time with each other or to take care of themselves. So, set some time aside to spend time together as a couple or for pampering.
