Bridal Shower Advice Book

Hello everyone!


Since I am getting married on April 21, 2012 my bridal shower is fast approaching for February!


I looked around online for some inspiration and what really inspired me was the blog weddings with the cricut (however I was very sad to see that the blog is no longer available :/). One of the posts showed a bridal advice book and the guests wrote their advice on tags and added them to the book. 


So I decided I wanted to create a bride advice book! At my shower I will give all of the attendants a tag and they will write me their advice for marriage. When they have finished writing they will put the tag into my advice book. I wanted to share with you what I have done already!


Here is the front cover

  1. Hi Tanya
    This is a lovely idea. I like the version of putting advice on the tags that you can pull out. Creative. Your attendants will have fun helping to make this keepsake.
    Congrats on your engagement.
    Congrats on be a blogger!
