Postcard Guest Book

Recommended Posts

Well what I was thinking of doing is putting postcards with a pen and a note in a little bundle in the OOT bags with one postcard with our address on it and stamped. The note will say something like thanks for being here for our wedding, in lieu if a guestbook we are asking our guests to fill in the pre-addressed postcard with some words of wisdom and wishes and mail them once you are back home.

I'm doing this too!

I printed some postcards from VistaPrint... I didn't exactly leave room for the stamp and address though... boo.

But yes, I'll need to announce that they must put them in one central spot when completed, or perhaps have one of the BMs go around and collect them.

Please write advice for the newlyweds
It can be serious funny or clever
Just a little something from you
To help them make it forever!
Very cute... I like the wording.

Wonderful idea to have them already printed up. I'm going to actually buy a bunch of cards when we arrive in Aruba and display them in an album when we get home. One side of the card will show the postcard picture and the other side will show the guests message.

I found wording that can be used from the dw forum on Wedding Dresses - Wedding Cakes - Wedding Planning - Unique Wedding Ideas - By TheKnot.com. I've seen it somewhere else before but don't remember where it came from or who wrote it.

 

 

Our Postcard Guestbook: In place of a traditional guestbook, we plan to keep these postcards in an album to remember our wedding. Please take a postcard to sign and return to the table when you are finished. Feel free to share your advice and wisdom on love and marriage, your predictions for the future, or tell us about a favorite memory from your time with us. Thank you.

 

These are my inspiration pictures for this special project. Sorry if they are too small... it's my first time uploading pics on this site.

We are doing the same for our guest book. We will be assigning someone to take pictures of each couple as well and that will go beside the postcard in the album. Our cards are from Vista Print and we came up with this little rhyme together on our balcony last summer (over a bottle of wine!). Hope you like it...

 

Please share with us your marriage advice

Whatever you offer will suffice

Seriour or fun

We're in need of some

As now we are husband and wife!

 

The front of the card is a beach scene and we just wrote "Our Wedding", the date and location.

Perfect question and great answers by everyone! I was planning on doing the same thing - I've purchased the most amazing old fashioned Hawaiian postcards - but never thought about how to let the guests know what they're supposed to do with them! This was sooo helpful!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
