If you’re in the process of planning a wedding, have you thought about the guest book yet? Asking loved ones to write a short message on their way into the reception will leave you with a unique memento from the big day. Instead of having them sign a book, though, why not put out a mat board? Then you can use it to frame one of the best photos. Here’s why you should opt for a mat board over a guest book.
To Create a Unique Memento
A guest book is a beautiful way to capture the magic of your big day. If the guests sign an actual book, though, chances are it will end up on a shelf or in a drawer, where you can’t enjoy it. By having everyone sign a mat board, on the other hand, you can enjoy the “guest book” every single day. Simply use the mat board to frame one of the wedding photos and hang it some place where you’re sure to see it often.
To Protect Your Favorite Wedding Photo
Since you will be looking at photos from your big day for the rest of your life, they ought to be showcased properly. All the photos you display should be framed properly with a mat board. Mat board feels similar to thick cardstock or dense cardboard and provides a barrier between the front of the photo and the back of the glass. Not only does it add a dynamic visual element to the entire piece—especially if it’s signed—but it also protects the photographic chemicals from fading over time because they will not be in direct contact with the glass.
