Guest Books by AKDWeddings
Kat exceeded every one of our expectations throughout the process – she is incredibly talented, professional, very creative, extremely responsive and was somehow able to somehow capture the essence of our relationship and personalities on paper without even knowing us. I really was against having a guest book until I came upon Kat's site and am now so grateful that we decided not to skip it. I’m sure this will become one of my favorite keepsakes from our wedding. It was definitely the value for money of any aspect of our wedding.
My guest book was beautiful and unique, I love to look through it! Fantastic and personal service, I have mine proudly displayed in my house.
Kat is SO great! I loved how she really listened to what kind of style and colors I was looking for and made something unique yet classy! She is SO talented and an absolute JOY to work with! Highly recommend her!

After going to business school and having a blast working at Disney World, Kat got engaged to her best friend! But that's another story... You can flip through their Photo Wedding Guest Book and Fairytale Wedding Album to learn that.
With a limited budget, they
decided to invest in the most important thing to them— memories. This wedding was only going to happen once, and they wanted to capture the magic of being completely elated and in love. What their cake looked like, who was there, how they
danced—every beautiful detail could be captured and revisited for years to come. They carefully selected a photographer and dropped $1,000 on pictures. To this day, they agree it was worth every penny.
Kat wanted her wedding to have a unique special touch, an irreplaceable keepsake that told "Our Story". All of their friends and family would be there one night, and they couldn't visit with everyone even though they sincerely wanted to. Options were few, didn't have the photo options she was looking for, and many were too expensive. As a professional graphic designer, she decided to create her own custom Photo Wedding Guest Book! It was functional and served as a place for guests to sign and write messages, a display for their engagement photos, and a keepsake to view on the honeymoon and display at home. Her then-fiancee said it was, "Like a Yearbook!"
The guest book was a hit at the wedding. Guests loved looking at the photos, reading the short blurb about how they met and what their plans were. Many of the comments were about how cute their song fit them perfectly. Every page was filled with signatures! Many guests kept asking who made it and where they could get one. Kat started making them for wedding gifts to loved ones who were getting married. As more people saw these fun and unique books, orders grew and the rest is history!
Agent Kat Design Weddings is dedicated to making Your Love Story Our Specialty. We will tell your Love Story in a stylish, high quality, timeless way so you can enjoy your wedding memories for a lifetime.
Why order a guest book from AKD Weddings?
There's last year's guest book where guests sign their name on plain lined paper. Then there's our new one-of-a-kind guest book that leaves a good impression, entertains your guests, and becomes a cherished heirloom of your wedding throughout your lifetime. We're not just designers, we're story-tellers. Our guestbooks feature fully-editted pictures of you and your fiancee on every page along with your love story. It comes with a custom dust jacket cover and provides plenty of room for your guests to write personalized wedding messages to you. Your guests will love browsing through the entire book while they are waiting in line. Professional, high quality, and affordable.
How soon do I need to order my guest book?
We recommend you order your guest book as soon as you have a wedding date set. It is best to submit your order at least 21 days before your big day. You can still submit an order up to 10 days before your big day (it will need to be shipped Express to arrive on time). We can do rush orders (less than 10 days) for an extra fee. Remember that rush orders may not allow for shipping time.
What pen would you suggest?
"Archival pens" are available in craft/scrapbook stores, and are awesome for the books. If you want guests to be able to write on the darker pages also, you can also get the metallic colors. Whatever you choose, make sure it's acid-free and says "archival quality" or the like on it. If it says "fast-drying", "non-bleeding", "non-toxic", "permanent", all the better. I've seen some good ones from Sakura of America, or ZIG Photo Signature pens...
How does your Referral Promotion work?
Tell all of your friends, family, and anyone who's getting married about us! If they submit an order, they get a chance to answer "How Did You Hear About Us?". Tell them to mention your name, and you'll get 10% off your order! (Four Referral Promotions maximum per household, Not valid with any other offer.)

What tips do you have for a great wedding guest book?
• Make it a Personal Keepsake. Include Your Song, How You Met, or that Poem he wrote.
• Send high quality photos or materials as early as possible to avoid Rush fees on processing and shipping.
• Use the right pen or marker that won't smear or go through pages. Have a loved one test this.
• If you have very dark pages, try some metallic markers that will write on black paper.
• Place your guest book where guests can't miss it (usually at the entrance or next to the line).
Which size will I need for my Wedding Guest Book?
Our Wedding Guest Books come in Large (11x8.5) or Extra Large (13x10), and each comes with 20 pages. The size you choose is really a preference. If you have more content or want more space for guests to write, we recommend Extra Large. Both sizes fit well on the bookshelf and can be displayed on the coffee table.
What if I don't know what to put in my guest book?
See our Ideas page for things you can use. Once we take a look at your pictures and get to know your personality, likes/dislikes and what is important to you, we can design a guest book that will artistically represent your Love Story.
I don't have my wedding plans finalized, can I still order?
Yes, please fill in as many details as you can. Once you submit your order, we will put it on file. You can have us send emails to you periodically to remind you about completing your guestbook or invitations.
How many guestbook pages should I order?
The more guests you have, the more space you need, the more pages you want. It's up to you! This also depends on how many photos you want to include, and how much white space you need. If you are having more than one reception or an open house, we recommend ordering at least a 25-page book.
Do I need to pick-up my guest book or will you deliver?
