About this product
One of our most popular items within our wedding stationery collection is the Guest Comments Frame. This features either the sketch of your venue or your chosen photograph from your wedding with all of your guest’s comments featuring around this in a frame of your choice. Please visit our sister brand, The Alternative Guest Book and our separate website, www.alternativeguestbook.co.uk for more details.
What you get
The end result is a truly memorable keepsake of your loved family and friends who were there to share your special day. This is supplied in a choice of three different sizes and in a choice of three wooden frames in various colours.
How it works
We provide cards for your guests that they can write on during the wedding breakfast (we suggest these cards are placed on the tables beforehand and a great time to remind them to fill them out is immediately after the speeches – a designated time usually means no one will forget, and is a good talking point amongst everyone at the table). You can ask your Wedding Co-ordinator or nominate someone from your Wedding Party to collect these or ask guests to ‘post’ in a box you have provided.
When the cards are sent to us sometime after the wedding, we arrange the comments evenly around the sketch to look aesthetically pleasing. We do this by either typing the comments and using different styles of hand-writing font or we scan the original cards.
What version do I choose? The scanned version is very personal because it is your guest’s actual handwriting. However, we sometimes find that some handwriting styles (Grandpas for example!) are hard to read, other comments may have some typos or it may be that if you have a large selection of comments, you might want to edit some of them, choosing a sentence, so that you have a comment on your final frame from as many guests as possible. This is where a typed version may be more appropriate as there is more flexibility in the editing.
Our website, www.alternativeguestbook.co.uk provides more guidance on this and has its own FAQ section which you may find useful.
Proofs are always provided before we finally print your treasured keepsake. Your original cards are also returned.
