DIY engravable guestbook alternatives from I Do Engravables #Sponsors#guestbook July 3 2012 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Damnit, I love with when couples get pro-active when they can't find wedding stuff to their liking. Our newest sponsor I Do Engravables was started when this husband and wife team were planning their wedding and looking for an alternative to the traditional guest book. They wanted something permanent, that they could display after the wedding, but not something that screamed I AM GUEST BOOK! Not being able to find exactly what they were looking for, they made one up. For those of you who follow us on Pinterest, you may have seen us pin this one. If you didn't see the pin, you're going to like what they came up with, because it's subtle as hell, super clever, and also uses a pretty bad-ass special pen. You can either get your I Do Engravable in the photo mat or guestbook tray or platter. No matter which you choose, it comes with this easy-to-use, diamond-tipped pen that actually engraves as your guests write. Knowing you guys, I'm sure your friends will be able to come up with some pretty clever shit — forever engraved statements of lurve, awesome engraved flourishes, and drawings done by a freaking diamond-tipped pen. The difference between this and the cardboard photo mat + ink pen combo is that the signatures (and whatever else your guests come up with) aren't blatantly obvious until you get closer to the silver metal, which is nice if you wanted to display something more subtle. If subtlety ain't your thing, you WILL like the fact that, unlike cardboard and ink, your guests special engravings won't ever fade when they're displayed. I Do Engravables guestbook alternatives are available in many styles from $69 and up, and different sizes to fit just about any wedding guest list. Let your guests well-wishes, like your lurve, last forever, and seal 'em with a freaking diamond(-tipped pen). Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

I think they are stunning! Reply Has anyone used this item? I wonder if the messages come out as clean as it appears in the pictures. Also, is it easy to write with the pen, or will older guests have trouble? I LOVE this idea…just worried that it may be great in theory, but not in reality… 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
