How to Set Up a Bible Guest Book at Your Wedding
As with any guest book set-up, it is important to tell guests HOW to sign it. Since a Bible is a unique idea, it may not seem as straightforward at first, since guests may wonder exactly where am I supposed to sign it and how to do it.
This Bible guest book sign instructs guests exactly how to do it — and it’s easy! Simply highlight your favorite verse and then sign their name next to it. This sign makes it simple and straight-forward for guests. You can get a sign like this made by Pink Posies and Pearls.
Be sure to include Bible pens like this that won’t bleed through the thin pages of the Bible; include these highlighters which are recommended for Bible journaling, since they won’t bleed through the page as other markers do. Place the pens and highlighters in a pencil or pen cup to keep them organized and easy to grab.
