        I think its a great idea. I saw it posted in something I was reading blissful events, or blissful weddings or something and I thought it sounded like such a creative and unique idea. The picture they showed was someone that used it for their vow renewals. I say go for it! It'll be fab and post pics of course!

          Okay, I'll be honest. I skimmed the first part of your post and thought you were thinking about doing this for your invitations...like, make a magazine of your relationship through the engagement and then announce the wedding date, location, etc at the end. And my first thought was eh...close family will love it, everyone else probaby not so much.

          But...since you're actually talking about a thank you for everyone who actually attended your wedding, I think it's a great idea! Everyone who cared enough to travel to your wedding will certainly appreciate the effort you'll put into it, plus it's a great way to compile pictures for everyone to have and keep instead of throwing it away after a few weeks.

          One thing you might want to include is a personalize note in each "magazine", specifically thanking the person/people for coming to your wedding and maybe even mention something specific that you did with them during the trip. I always prefer something personalized vs a generic "thanks for sharing our special day" note.

            Thanks everyone for all the feedback! I was a little hesitant at first but I asked people around my office and everyone thought it was a great idea plus after reading the feedback here I think I might go for it.

            mrs*j*2011 ---I did think about your comment (above) and agree that I would like to include a personal note.

            So here's what I was thinking of doing.... You know the page in real magazines where the editor usually writes a letter in each issue? I was going to leave a blank page in our 'wedding magazine' similar to that, and hand write a personal thank you note to each guest. That way it feels even more personalized.

              That is a great idea. I agree that most thank you cards you just glance at and throw away. I think your guests would love and cherish this. Don't forget to tell us what site you did it on and tips for making it great...and LOTS of PICS. =)

                I think it sounds like a great idea, and I think your guests would really enjoy it, plus it would help remind them of some of their own memories as well!

                    This is AWESOME and if it doesn't break the bank (we're having close to 100 guests) I might just do the same!! Good luck!
