DIY Wedding Guest Books

There are a lot of ways to personalize a wedding reception, but one of the most unique ways is to create or design your own wedding guest book.  In fact, these days, wedding guest books aren’t always “books”.  I’ve found some great alternatives, as well as a some traditional ideas, for you today!

From the Creative Cubby, a Polaroid Wedding Guest Book… with great instructions! A fabulous memory maker!

Polaroid Wedding Guest Book 1

 

From Something Turquoise, alternative wedding guest book idea…and FAB!  A painted canvas guestbook that becomes a work of art for your new home!

From You, Me & House Makes Three, another amazing piece of “guest book” artwork… made from scrapbook paper hearts, and all the heartfelt notes from wedding guests:

guest-book-art

From Confetti Day Dreams – a post full of Colorado gorgeousness… AND a fun “guest book” puzzle idea.  They used puzzle pieces that the guests could write a note on, and the bride and groom could put the tree puzzle together later, reading all the sentiments as they went!

And for those of you who want a little “bling”, check out these photos on Project Wedding… just a little bling changes a guest book in a BIG way!

Lemon and Lime Wedding Inspiration

I collect links to all kinds of wedding (and party) inspiration, and often I realize that themes are emerging among all my collected links.  Today is a post based on one of those themes – lemons and limes!  The golden yellow and lovely green of lemon and lime make a perfect accents for summer weddings, I think… and I’m not alone!

Check out the GORGEOUS wedding cake gallery of Dream Day Cakes… lots of colors and amazing designs, and I especially love this lime green wedding cake – there are several more in the gallery:

Theme Thursday – Thinking about 2013 Weddings!

I don’t have a specific theme for today, but rather some general info for getting started with your wedding and reception plans for 2013!  Some of these topics we will discuss in more detail in the coming weeks (like the colors listed below), but for now, here’s a “quick start” to 2013 wedding planning!

Wedding Colors:

According to a couple of wedding trends websites I’ve visited recently, some of the most popular wedding colors for 2013 will be aqua, tangerine, lilac, mustard, antique blue, deep red, latte, lavender, charcoal, and sage.  What do you think?

Wedding Themes:

Traditional church weddings still exist of course, but more and more it seems that couples are choosing “theme” weddings.  Destinations like Hawaii and Mexico seem to be HUGELY popular… outdoor, folksy weddings… vintage and shabby chic (also usually outdoors)…. Las Vegas (of course).  Check out this video from Martha Stewart – she and her Darcy Miller share some lovely trends and ideas. (you’ll have to bear through a 30 second advertisement first).  She also is offering a destination wedding sweepstakes!

Wedding DIY:

Here at Diva Entertains we talk A LOT about DIY (or do-it-yourself).  All of our posts are chock-full of DIY ideas for parties and entertainment.  Over the last few months, the best place to go to find wedding DIY is Pinterest.  We have set up Pinterest boards with links to recipes, DIY ideas, themes, and just plain fun stuff.  If you aren’t on Pinterest, you should be!  You can follow Diva Entertains by clicking HERE…. and click on over to see the latest “pins” under “wedding, diy”:

Wedding Favors:

We love wedding favors – designing them, making them, selling them, sharing them.  It is a wonderful feeling to be a part of a bride’s special day, and we have some AMAZING favors in our Diva Entertains shop.  We try not to be blatant with “selling” our own goods here on the DE blog, but if you are looking for niche favors, theme favors, specific color favors – well, we have them!
