Lately, we have been in a few meetings with some of our fabulous brides going over details to their special day and it had occurred to us that most every bride has had some sort of concern about their guest book.  Questions we were getting were: Is it necessary to have one and do I need to have the traditional book?  The answer to both questions is no.  Although it may be important for you to remember who all attended your wedding, it isn’t necessarily required for you to have a sign in sheet or the traditional book that we are all used to.

I flashed back to that moment when Carrie and Big are laying together in bed and she pulls out her library book to begin reading love passages from great authors. What I then thought about was the moment right before the I do’s, when Big called Carrie because he couldn’t think of the right words for his vows and how it ultimately all ties together.

The wedding invitation arrives and all of the details such as who, where, and when are included – all except the specifics like what to wear. This becomes your responsibility as a guest, unfortunately, to read between the lines and figure out just what would be appropriate. The guidelines of what to wear to a wedding are changing each year, but all these rules seem be a bit more open to individual expression and taste.
