We love wedding guest books, and we’ve probably said it like 7000 times before. But a lot of couples might wonder why they even need one — if they anticipate having fun at their wedding and know that their guests will, too, then those memories will last forever in the back of their minds, no need for the highlight reel, right? Well, that’s where we’ll stop that runaway train of thought to remind you that your wedding day will be that huge blur that everyone always talks about. Sure, there are going to be things about the morning, afternoon, evening, and late night that will forever stick out, but the more subtle moments, the faces of your best friends having a blast at your reception, the silly photo booth snaps of your relatives — who usually never like showing up for pictures — the sentiments of your loved ones who have watched your love grow from the beginning and now have a clear idea of what they’ll say to usher you into the happily ever after need their due, too. And thankfully, our friends at CatchThisMoment have handcrafted the most stunning guest books to keep all the best from the big day together. Not even kidding, you’ll be buying yourself the best wedding gift ever if you decide to get one of theirs.
In this enchantingly-modern Etsy shop, you’ll find unique and high-quality handmade wedding guest books, wedding photo albums, wedding Mad Libs card boxes, vow books, ring boxes, and amazing baby keepsake memories, birthday boxes, and accessories. The shop owners only use the finest-quality materials, unique details, and bespoke craftsmanship to design and produce their special, custom work. And it shows… 25K sales, no big deal…
And really, we were okay with the just-words looks even so. Writers, right?
Their guest books were imagined for the soon-to-be weds who want something different and alternative. It’s much more than a book full of signatures, it’s a wedding album. The one that you’ll have to take home the very next day. Since they’re compatible with Polaroid® photos, you can splay your signature wedding register out (we recommend having a nicely-styled little vignette/photo book station set up at the reception or cocktail hour) and have your guests pose for a pic that they can then pair with a few great lines of advice, well wishes, keen observations/theories on love and marriage that they’ve taken to heart, etc. Oh! And some adorable little entry-enhancing emoji stickers. These are too cute, we can’t!
Even if you’re not the emotional type (which I am, btw, I think after my high school graduation, I clenched my yearbook for days just reading and re-reading the notes from my best best friends, friends, classmates, even just locker neighbors who I got to know over four years simply because our last names had alphabetized us), you’ll want something to hold tight while you’re dealing with the post-wedding blues, safely snuggled in the arms of your new spouse. And CatchThisMoment’s guest book will be there for you. Since, you know, the professional wedding photos are still at LEAST a few weeks away.
Because in the midst of the blurriest, most fast-moving day in your whole life, you’ll probably see everyone you invited — do quick hugs and kisses — but you might not get the chance to hang with all of them. To see their Polaroid and be able imagine what they were saying/drinking/laughing about in the pic is just so much fun. It’s true, they WILL have a blast, and that’s what the two of you wanted all along. With a whole book of photos to look back on, you’ll never forget the very special experience you treated your friends and fam to.
Yes, it was a great idea. You two are perfect for each other, and the most incredible people in your lives realize it and wrote a s*** ton about it in your book. So, if you’re ever feeling doubts or post-wedding cold feet, don’t! You made the right decision in getting engaged, planning your wedding, and sharing the day with everyone who means the world to you and your partner. Read their words, heed their advice, and know that this commitment came after you forged a beautiful relationship, a beautiful kinship, that will last this lifetime and beyond!
We wouldn’t lie to you, getting a wedding guest book will always be a good decision. But CatchThisMoment just takes theirs to a new level with a book that’s not just full of photos, captions, and signatures, but rather, a time capsule and collection of memories from the greatest day of your life. You can design a cover logo for yourselves (which will look 👌 on your coffee table) and even have it tailored to match the look of your wedding stationery/mimic your monograms, etc. CatchThisMoment provides a digital draft for your review before final sign off, so you can feel totally calm, cool, and collected about customizations.
They’ll even rush the order if you need it faster… we see you slackers 😉. If we convinced you to get a guest book after you thought ‘Eh, no, we’ll be okay’ for months, then it’s all worth it!
Catch up with this Etsy star seller right now and get your purchase on! To say it again for everyone who might have missed it — like in the title — it’ll be the best wedding gift you get yourselves.
