1 Part Blurb, 2 Parts Guestbook and A Whole Lotta Love

The day has arrived. Our Blurb Guestbook is here! I know I’m an early girl…I have been a very busy bride getting together details for Mr. Knight and I’s nuptials next year. And with that, I didn’t want to go with the typical wedding guestbook. You know, the one where everyone just signs their name, kind of like they are checking into your wedding, like its a hotel. Which I felt was kind of lame and totally not Mr. Knight and I’s style. So begins the story of our guestbook.

I wanted something where guests could leave more then just their name. I hope for guests to leave messages for us. So when looking through all the ways of making a non-typical guestbook I decided on using our engagement photos and compiling them into a Blurb book (ohhh another way to use them in our wedding..boy am I sneaky! After all the Starks did such an awesome job…how could I pass up using them!).

After downloading the Blurb software, it was super easy putting the book together. And when I say super easy… I mean SUPER easy. :-)

Check out our guestbook’s awesome-ness below ↓

Oh..it hurts to have to blur our beautiful font on the front but alas…privacy. The back cover has the date we started dating. It has been 6 1/2 wonderful years ♥

The pages were all made in Photoshop then placed as Jpegs in the Blurb software program. The book cost total about $35. This included 40 pages, image wrap, with premium paper, along with a promo code which gave me $10 off (covered shipping). There are promo codes for Blurb all over the Internet. I used hewlettpackard10. I’m unsure if the code still works but it is worth a try.

I’m so happy to finally be holding our cute little Blurb guestbook (it took about 2 weeks to get here!). It will not only be a guestbook for our friends and family to leave messages for us on our wedding day but it will also double as an album of our super awesome engagement photos. Hooray!

    Kim- I adore your blog and your Blurb books looks great! I started offering these as well because I think it is so special to be able to use your engagement photos as a guest book.

    I love this. Am trying to do something similar using MyPublisher. I’m not a photoshop wiz- so trying to just build the book in Blurb was a bit difficult for me- but I really love the MyPublisher and I got a coupon for a free book. Just finalizing it with the Fiance now and will place my order– yeah!

  8. Congrats!! I linked to your blog through your Weddingbee post. Your guest book is beautiful… I might have to give Blurb a try to make our parents albums.

    PS. We are getting married the weekend after you.
