    I created our guest book using Blurb.com, because I had used them before and I knew that I could trust the results. The software is free and easy to use (although can be slow if you don't have much memory on your computer), and their ordering system is efficient and reliable. And the end product looks like a real book you could get at the bookstore!

    I get the book in about 2 weeks, can't wait to get it in my hands!

    Here is the link for our guest book - the preview page lets you see all the pages of our book, cover to cover.
    Magalie + Travis | Blurb

    For the inside I did a combo of three things: blank space for those who know what to say or wanted to draw something, fill in the blank / mad libs along with some of our "engagement session" (i.e. shots taken after our civil ceremony).

    Warning: while doing online research for examples of wedding mad libs, I clicked on a link and got 13+ viruses on my computer (which has been fixed now, thankfully!), so be very careful on what you click on if you want to go with that idea!!!

              oh this is awesome, love it! I was just thinking of doing something similar, but I hadn't thought of ad libs. What a fun idea! Thanks for sharing!
