Handmade Guest Books of Heirloom Quality

by Emma Arendoski

Your guest book will be a lasting memory and heirloom to cherish for years to come. That’s why we love these handmade guest books by Alternative Journals which are made with the finest materials and craftsmanship to last through the years. Celine of Alternative Journals (and quite honestly one of the kindest artisans we’ve ever met) puts two loving hands into each book. Each guest book is handmade from cover to cover with each page individually cut and folded into signatures, sewn together to create a text block. She mentions this is an important feature she adds that others don’t, “so your pages don’t fall out as you reach the end of your book.” Take a peek at three new colors just launched for the fall collection (we told you our Artisans are gearing up for the new season!) including a deep purple, blush, and gray linen:

This dark purple guest book is a beautiful color. It is covered in linen with the name of the bride and groom, along with the wedding date, handwritten in a calligraphy style font. The book holds 164 pages for names and wishes of guests to be written on both sides. Book measures 8.5 by 8.5 inches. The ribbon color is custom selected by you and includes satin chocolate brown (pictured), ivory, white, pale yellow, burgundy, taupe, turquoise, black, velvet in dark fuchsia, fudge brown, green moss, and white organza ribbon. Other colors available upon request. Each of the books showcased today offer the same specs above.

This is such a pretty shade of pink named ‘Blush’. This book is shown with a peach satin ribbon.

This classic gray guest book – also covered in linen – features an ivory satin ribbon. I love this book because it coordinates with any wedding color scheme.
