3 Reasons Why Guest Books Are Important
Posted by on
Guestbooks are an important part of any wedding or special event. In fact, some people believe it can be one of the most important accessories for your wedding day.
Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn't overlook the importance of having a guest book at your wedding:
- It becomes a lasting keepsake after your event. It not only reminds you who was there to share your special day with you, but it can become a heartfelt keepsake and beautiful edition to your home, especially when using a Guest Tree. As time passes, you'll be able to look at the messages, notes, and/or signatures and reminisce. It can even become a tradition to look at your Guest Tree when you celebrate your anniversary.
- It is a great icebreaker for your guests. Some attendees will look at the guestbook right away in order to see which guests have already arrived. It also helps guests mingle with each other when they first arrive while waiting to sign in. It encourages your attendees to talk amongst themselves and get to know each other better. Using something as unique as a Guest Tree will also spark conversation about the guest "book" itself.
- It's helpful when writing your thank you notes. Being able to look back at your guests' signatures on your Guest Tree can help with things like correct spelling of names. It can become your ultimate cheat sheet to remind you who attended. Also, if you had guests sign their name and leave a message, it is nice to acknowledge the note in a thank you card so that your guest knows you took the time to read it.
As you can see, a guest book can be a great addition to your wedding, or any event for that matter. It serves a number of purposes and becomes a memento that you will treasure for years to come. And with a Guest Tree, you can customize colors and fonts, so it becomes a piece unique to your event!
