It’s a well known fact that Charlotte and I are big fans of informal photos at weddings and we both had a way of our own to document all our guests… I went for a Polaroid photo book and asked a trusted friend to go around and take a snapshot of each couple/family which they then held onto, to stick next to their message in our guest book. This was no mean feat however and certainly not very cost effective – we borrowed the camera but film for 80 guests still cost us more then £80. I now absolutely love looking at our guest book though and remembering what everyone was wearing, exactly how they were on the day.
Charlottes take on it was slightly different however and she provided a frame for her subjects, plus a ton of fun props to capture her guests having the wicked time that they did.
So when I saw this little DIY project over on Ruffled I was pretty excited! It’s got all the things I love, DIY, a cheap way to make a massive impact, prints and florals and that fun factor we all need. Plus, even better, it’s the perfect project to give your husband-to-be to get him involved and keep him busy in the run up to the big day!
For the Full how to, and loads more helpful pictures, makes sure you check out the full post on Ruffled. The project was actually submitted by a Ruffled reader in their annual DIY contest and I know there must be loads of DIY-tastic readers of our own out there, so if you have something fabulous you think other brides would like to read about and try their hand at, send us your how-to with step by step pictures and we can share it right here on Rock My Wedding!
Fancy giving this one a try? We’d sure love to see the results!
