Bon Voyage

The Idea: Instead of the traditional guestbook, have guests pen their warm wishes and congratulatory notes on poster-size paper. For her April nuptials, Kathleen Blanchfield crafted one such memory board. Some guests even got creative and attached their place cards with handwritten notes on the inside.

Why We Love It: It's easy to make. Just paste your wedding invitation to a piece of poster board—and voilà—a treasured keepsake you can frame and keep on display for years to come.
