The New Wedding Guestbook

While speaking to one of my brides yesterday, she asked if she should get a wedding guestbook. Initially I suggested a wishing tree because she is having a very natural and organic style wedding but she is also an art therapist and while she loved the idea of a wishing tree and apparently uses something similar in her work, I am now thinking an art print guestbook may be nice for her. Still along the lines of her work and the couple both like original art.

To do this simply get a large canvas and either let your guest freely decorate or you can mark out grids or a paint by numbers style template for them to follow. Like this:

Choose the colors you like {either your wedding colors or the colorscheme for the room you may hang it in} and use proper paints or watercolors or even sharpies in various colors. Just fun.
