The tradition of a wedding guest book began many hundreds of years ago.  There was a need for testimony of those in attendance to the covenant of the marriage.  Those signing their names would be testifying to the reality of the marriage. The term “book” has taken on many forms.  Brides and grooms may choose to have guests record thoughts, wishes and advice, or simply a signature. We will discuss some unique ways to add a personalized touch to your guest book!
