I know my wedding was aaaages ago now but I thought this was a nice DIY that I could share with everyone. Instead of opting for a traditional guest book I wanted something that wouldn’t get shoved onto a shelf and rarely looked at. It didn’t take long to see this idea on Pinterest – usually it was done so that guests would print their own finger print on a tree or the back of the bike. However, I’m a control freak so visions of a lopsided arrangement of balloons on the back of the bike didn’t sit well with me! Plus I’m no detective so deciphering finger prints isn’t my forte and I wanted to be able to look at the tree and see instantly who had been there on our big day.
So I took elements of what I’d seen on Pinterest and added the balloons myself with the intention guests would sign their name in a balloon. The Hotel that hosted us did a great job of going around to each table just after dinner to get people to sign the print. The print now happily resides on the wall of our sitting room and is a lovely reminder of the people who were present to celebrate our happy day.
And in the spirit of sharing here’s the bike guest book template I made – you can edit the bottom to include your own names and date but I’ve done the hard work of adding the balloons for you!
