FAQ on Personalised Wedding Guest Books
As a professional photographer it's a good idea to get used to working with your client before the wedding. Doing a pre-wedding shoot to give them images for their personalised wedding guest book is an ideal opportunity. It will give your clients extra memories from their special day. You can also brand the book so the guests know it's your work which is great promotion for yourself and will help advertise your services to other guests.
There are 15 pages, meaning 30 sides.
This is totally up to your client. Many brides choose to place their guest books at the entrance or exit of the ceremony space. Then after that, take the book to the reception space as well for guests who were unable to sign initially or didn't make the ceremony. Put it on a dedicated table and make a feature of it so you make sure as many guests as possible will see and sign it.
There are eight different types of options for lined pages (eg a full page of thin or thick lines or 6 block sections of lines). You can totally mix these options up on different pages and you can also include plain paper pages as well.
No our book is fully bound and pages cannot be taken out.
Our personalised wedding guest book doesn't come with a pen but you could order a special one if you so wished elsewhere.
This is all really down to personal preference. Some people like to have a personalised wedding guest book as there is lots more room for special messages and is lovely to take out and read from time to time. If your client wants something more on display, then a signing frame would be your answer. You can buy a signing frame on our sister site, Sim Frame. However, you would only get one photo with a frame and you can have multiple photos contained within a guest book. There is nothing stopping you from having both though!
We would recommend an instant drying pen like a gel pen. We don't recommend a biro as this could leave smudges. The same goes for a permanent marker pen as this could bleed through a page.
There are many to choose from inside SimWare. However, if the font you like is not there for your personalised wedding guest book, you can add text to your cover image in Photoshop before uploading it into SimWare.
No it's the same price whether you have 20 photos or none.
