7. Wedding Guest Book

After your wedding and honeymoon is over, you get to pour over wedding pictures and read the thoughtful notes in your guest book. Unfortunately, not much is written in this book as the guests are little or not interested in this part of the wedding.

How To Be Creative

Finding it difficult to get well-wishers as guests? Go for a dramatic display like a verdant wreath that is adorned with chartreuse santini mums and tiny bows. Do not forget to keep colorful pencils nearby in a cup.
