Photobooth Guestbook

We had kind of a difficult time deciding what type of guestbook to choose. We thought about photo mats, polaroid guestbooks, etc. etc. Nothing seemed quite right. At the end of the day, Mr. Cream Puff really wanted a photobooth, so we decided to split the cost on it and get one. After that, our guestbook decision was an easy one.

Remember my photo album for our professional pictures (I mistyped my post and it was super confusing? Now maybe you remember, haha)? That was made for us by one of my old co-workers, who has gone into business making amazing albums. She also made us our guestbook, which is made to match. :)

So pretty!!

We didn’t want to pay an extra $300 for the guestbook option through our photobooth company, so we decided to wait for our photo CD after the wedding. As place holders, I made cards explaining that eventually their photos would be in the album, so people should write in the space next to them.

Here’s a close-up of the card. It reads, “Your Photo Coming Soon!” Welcome to our Photo Booth Guestbok! We’ll be placing your photo booth picture here after the wedding, so please sign next to it! We would love if you would sign more than just your name! Tell us a story, give us some advice, draw us a picture… anything! We want our guestbook to be fun to look at, so please, show us your personality!” Then I have an arrow pointing to the blank space, saying, “Please sign over here!”

I also had to figure out how to pass out our photo reminder cards. That’s when I came across the beautiful wedding of knottie futuremrsj34, who had the genius idea to pass out envelopes for people to put their photobooth photos in:

So… I stole her idea and made it colorful. I added a sticker of a photobooth strip on the side, along with our names and our wedding dates (sorry, I couldn’t get a very good picture of these!):

I slipped our photo reminder cards in each envelope, and people will take them home along with their pictures. I’ll also have a stack of the cards at our “goodbye table,” which will be right at the exit to the wedding. Here’s hoping people upload their pictures!

    Very cute! You are so talented!

    Can I ask a question about your album though? Is the album made from the kits that they sell at Paper-Source? I have a little project for our vow renewal and I am planning on using those kits, but am curious about how large they are after they’re done, etc. It looks great!

    I love the place-holder idea! Our photographer said she would do a photobooth, but the pictures would not be available at the wedding, so I was trying to figure out if I liked this option, and now thanks to you Miss ‘Puff I can see it will work! thanks!

    Those little cards turned out awesome! I love that people will most likely take them home and remember to send in their photos rather than just leave the card on the table.

    Yay! Everything looks like it’s coming together so beautifully. :) (I’m in SF too and so cannot wait to see all your recap and photos.)

    Miss CP, may I ask a question? We are hoping to do a photobooth too, but are getting kind of freaked out by the prices we have been quoted so far. . . $1400 and up. Would you mind sharing your photobooth company if you think they are a good option? Thank you immensely if so . . . .

    I ADORE those envelopes. Every time you post one of your projects, I think “This, this is my favorite.” Then you post another! Keep outdoing yourself, girl!

    This would have been great at our wedding! I noticed people were kinda fumbling with all their wedding strips and this would have solved it.

    I have to say- we did go in extra for the guest book option and it is by far my most favorite memory “keepsake” of the wedding. Guests really had fun with it- as I’m sure they will with yours too!

    how did you place the “place holder” cards on the guest book? Do you plan on taking them off when you get the photo strips or just covering the picture over the “place holder” cards?

    Thanks!

    Will there be a photobooth operator there to instruct people to use the envelopes or will there be a sign?

    Use your passion and geek expertise to liberate the latent creativity that resides in readers, something that works better than the linear, sequential and fast fading stream of comments (yeah, this is recursive). Comments are writing, but lets have something not as we know it. Writing in this box just feel a little klunky, there must be a better way, make a better blog :)
