    I really am not a huge fan of a book with peoples names written in it. I would much rather have someone draw a funny picture or share a great memory at our wedding/party.
    We are having our pre-wedding party next Saturday so that is why I have this done so early.
    SOOO I made up a book so people can do this. Our good friend beachbride shared a poem that came just in time for me to use. THANKS!
    I did add something to the end because a few of my friends are not in relationships and they might be discourage from sharing tips.
    Here is the poem she shared with my extra lines.

    a very treasured gift
    A piece of hidden knowledge we didn't know exists.
    So share with us your wisdom about
    marriage, love and life
    How to be a loving husband or to be
    the perfect wife.
    Please write your thoughts
    and wishes to share with us for life
    For the greatest gift of all is the gift of your advice.

    If giving of advice doesn't appeal to you,
    we have something else to ask you to do.
    Share your favorite story of our times together
    Placing them in this book will help us to cherish our memories forever.
    Now on to your favorite part--PICTURES! I will warn you they are big so you can see the detail
    The cover.
    I bought a sketch book and put the ribbon and flower on.

    This is all I am doing to these pages. I will have the guests write out their message to us and then put their picture where ever they have not written.

            Oh thanks. I have done them off and on for about 8 years. I was doing it before all the fancy papers came out so I am happy that I can make things faster than before.

                Ahh yes, I would do it if I had tons of free time. It took me about 4 hours to do just those few pages. Cutting those circles out was killer!
