I've had a few people ask about my wedding guest book. I absolutely love the tradition of having guests sign a book or object as a keepsake from the day. So many of our friends and family traveled from near and far to spend their day with us, and I will always cherish that! I really wanted to do some kind of guest book that I would want to keep and display in our home after the event was over. I remember in high school I went to a few weddings where the couple had guests sign the matting of a photo of them (usually from their engagement). I loved the idea of finding a way to hang the signatures in your home for years to come.I have a collection of antlers hanging in our living room above our liquor cart. Since I already had a growing collection of antlers and cow skulls I decided to might be fun to have guests sign a cow skull that I got for the event. Originally I was going to buy a longhorn skull (my father-in-law is a MAJOR Texas Longhorns fan, so it seemed appropriate) but I found one I liked at a flea market a few months before so I decided to use that instead. In case you are curious all the antlers and skulls in my collection are from etsy, flea markets and thrift stores. Plus a few faux ones that I painted to fit in. :) I think a few guests thought our guest book was a little… different. And rightly so. 🙂 It's now proudly hanging in our home and I love it! I think we will enjoy it for years to come. Thanks for letting me share. xo. Emma
