Today was a gorgeous day in Boston. After having back to back floods, the sunglasses and flipflops seem to pop up everywhere. Although it’s a beautiful spring day, I’m about to share a glimpse of fall.
We are offering a new product: an engagement album. The images from the bride and groom’s engagement session are carefully designed into a flat hinged album (meaning the pages lay flat no matter which part of the book it’s opened to) with generous white spaces so that the album can be used as a sign-in guest book on the wedding day. I’m a fan of white space, so when I see the album below, I don’t have the urge to fill up the white spaces with notes, but it can certainly be used that way.
I had been wondering why at many weddings I’ve been to, guests fill out their names in the guest book, followed by their address. If someone attends the wedding, that means they were invited by a wedding invitation, meaning the bride and groom have their address, right? So why fill up that space with your contact info? I’m curious why this happens, please feel free to comment if you know the answer. When I was preparing for our wedding, I designed my own guest book, because the guest books I could find weren’t the right format or the right size, or the right design. But an album like this, is full of the bride and groom’s personality, and combines the loving blessings of friends and family with the memories of the engagement season. It feels like an elevated version of an yearbook, where the pictorial memories of a a year is combined with friends’ greetings and best wishes.
It starts with a hard cover with custom image and the wedding date:
