A wedding guest book.  It always sounds like a great idea when you are wedding planning, because of course, you want to remember every person that was there.  I had one 21 years ago, however I’ve never even opened it once.
So when the subject was addressed for my daughter’s wedding, we decided to scratch the tradition.  However, I am replacing it with something much more fun and personal:  wedding advice cards.
Wedding advice cards

Wedding advice cards still provide a record of who was at your wedding, but instead of just a name, you get the great wisdom, sense of humor, and knowledge of your guests as well.  Brilliant!

To order these online, it was going to cost me at least $60 for the 100 that I needed.  Um, no thank you.  I have a craft room full of unused scrapbook supplies for a reason, you know!

Wedding advice cards
To begin, click here to download a FREE printable version of these adorable cards!  I designed this printable myself and would love to save you the time of trying to do the same.  I added the bride and grooms name/wedding date to the bottom, but the printable version does not have that on it.  I printed mine on a metallic silver paper to go with the wedding theme, but please, use whatever type of paper is best for you.
Use a paper cutter to cut out each card.  You can either leave the card like this, or enhance the design a bit.  (That is my favorite part!)  I added black card stock to the back of each card to frame them and then to bling them out, two rhinestones on each key.  They sell these self adhesive rhinestones at any scrapbook supply store.
So for less than $8.00, I had my 100 wedding advice cards.   Use your own creativity and wedding theme to enhance my version!
Ready to see the gorgeous and fun way we are displaying these cards at the wedding???  Then come on back NEXT WEEK and see for yourself!

This is a really great idea. I like the idea of individual cards rather than writing advice in a book when 100 others are waiting in line. And very creative and sweet design to boot.

Looks very nice. Did you use card stock for both the silver and black? What type of glue did you use to stick the two together?

Thank you so much. This is exactly what I am looking for for my future daughter in-laws bridal shower. I will enjoy making these and as you mentioned, what a nice keepsake form they could post on a board or framed for their easy convenience. Thanks so much. Her colors are Navy and White. Maybe I’ll look at a pearl stock paper w/ the navy backing!! Love the rhinestone idea too. That is a must for me!! T hank you!!
