Ok so i have a question for all you brides/brides to be!

So its been awhile since ive posted, but was curious about something and always found you ladies to be super nice and helpful! If anyone remembers me, i made this painting for my guestbook:

So i was curious to know if this is something you think other brides would be interested in? you know in their wedding colors, and different siloutes for different style of dresses and different poses and such? Also i could probably do vectored images of brides, grooms and bridesmaids for use in programs and stuff... and can probably do illustrations of the brides dress. I just wanted to see if other brides and brides to be thought this would be a good idea, before i get a bunch of supplies and such. i thought it came out very nice! 

here is my finished guestbook... which would have had more signatures if my pens hadnt exploded. LOL

So i dunno what do you ladies think? is this marketable? I've been unemployed for months now and there isnt any end in sight, so im turning to my god given talents to see if i can make something out of em! Help?

 I think it would be lovely. 

Maybe look into Etsy, or maybe a local craft fair?? You don't want to spend lots of money if the demand isn't there but if you have the ability to pick up supplies as soon as an order is made I think it would be great

 You know I hadn't thought of craft fairs. That's actually a pretty good suggestion! :3 normally I sell artwork at cons but that isn't exactly the right place for this. I do have some smaller canvases from an old project that I thought about useing for some test paintings. Thanks for your input.

 Yes, I think if you customized it to each individual it could catch on.  The painting is beautiful.

Yes that is a great idea.  Is there any wedding fairs coming up? Maybe you can promote your business with someone who is already doing weddings? an event planner or florist........etc....

Good luck!!!

painting is nice!

I actually like it as such and not as a guestbook. just seeing the signatures on it, almost takes the beauty away.

Most brides do want something practicaly, so in that sense, this will def work...but imagine this showcased at the wedding? I think it would be BEAUTIFUL!

if you have a blog, you can def start promoting...pinterest...etc. and to add to zeuster, start telling your friends so when they get married, their guest will see it and start to inquire.

Good luck!!

 yeah i did want to have it scanned prior to signing it so i could have a canvas printed... but i couldnt find someone who could do it. :P so i just settled with it. i just thought this was a nice way to have a guestbook i can always see. it sits above our dinning table.

I LOVE IT!!! It is unique and beautiful. I think that there is definite opportunities for you to work with on this. 

We did a figer print tree and I LOVE that I walk past it every single day and see all the love from our family and friends rather than a book collecting dust in a drawer.

Good luck hon. Let us know what you decide to do.

I love the idea! If you can personalise it for the couple I think it could be a winner. Maybe stay local at first, put flyers in wedding dress shop, cake and florists and build up from there. Good luck!

I love the idea. I tink many brides are getting away from the book style guest books because as someone said it sits in a drawer collecting dust. With this you can see it everyday and it will remind you of all the people who shared in your special day
