As much as we love some of the creative guest books out there- some of them only allow for guests to sign their name and maybe sneak in a ‘Congrats!’. We love reading the sweet notes that guests leave for the bride and groom: advice, words of wisdom and love, memories, and even encouragement. These little booklets make a fun guest book alternative. Place one on each table as the table number marker and have guests fill out notes over the course of the night. Package them up as a cute display on your book case and every year snuggle up with a bottle of wine to read the sweet notes from your loved ones.
You could design these to look however you like, or even customize store bought notebooks (have you seen these gorgeous guys?!) with some gold leaf. We’ve created these simple ones in the numbers 1 through 15 for you in 3 different colour schemes: pinks, greens, and black. All you need to do is click the colour below you’re digging and download the printable PDF document.

When you have your covers printed on card stock (I chose a gloss cover stock), cut pages out of standard printer paper to the same size, fold in half and use an embroidery needle to bind as shown.
Just so you’re forewarned, we’re kind of on a table number kick around here… so we’ll have a round up of some of our faves (including these guys!) for you next Tuesday! Have any you’re in love with that you’d like to see included? Send them our way 🙂
Today I’m so excited to be sharing these lovely watercolour feather engagement and wedding cards with you all! If you’re anything like me, you have a ton of weddings and showers to attend this summer. These cards should get you out of one or two last minute jams and look so pretty printed up for a bride and groom. When my friend Colleen shared her free feather templates on Friday I couldn’t help snatch them up for these cards. The watercolour detail is one of my favourite ways to pretty up any design lately, and brush script? It’s all good, you guys!

One of my favourite traditions for bridal showers is for guests to bring one of their favourite recipes to gift to the new bride. I know that Pinterest is the new recipe book (and I love it!) but there’s something so special of recipes passed down along family and friends. By asking guests to bring just one, you know you’re getting a tried and true favourite, and hey- who says you can’t request that chicken dish of Aunty Ann’s that you look forward to year round!
There’s a certain charm about everyone bringing a recipe card from their collection but with less of us stocking recipe cards in our cupboards, it’s nice to provide guests a card for them to bring along. Send these out with the invitation and the bride-to-be will have a beautiful recipe collection. We’ve created the recipe cards in both these blue and pink colours, but also in a golden yellow and simple black and white. All the colour versions have a watercolour texture up close.
Just click the colour you would like, download the PDF and print on card stock paper! The PDF has 2 recipe cards per sheet, sized at a standard 4×6 recipe card size.

So tell us, do you have any pre-wedding traditions that you adore? I’d love to hear them!
