TO THE AISLE AUSTRALIA WOODEN WEDDING GUEST BOOKS

Cara from Wedding Guest Book Co in Tasmania chats to us about how she started her Wedding guest book business using sustainable real Tasmanian timber and the concept behind her designs. All to help you keep your memories beautiful preserved!

"As our name would suggest we make wooden wedding guest books - both traditional guest books + the more non-traditional question guest books, along with on trend Polaroid wedding guest books. Everything is hand made to order so that we can beautifully customise each book to suit the lucky couple! Our selection process is simple and you get to choose the size, type of wood + personalised cover design. You can also upgrade to supply your own wedding logo that we can engrave onto the wooden guest books cover" Cara - The Wedding Guest Book Co

After your Wedding day, your Wedding guest book is a beautiful keepsake that gives you the opportunity to read through your memories and messages any time you want. Some couples keep a time capsule of their Wedding day memorabilia to gift to their children on their Wedding day!
 
➳ It's been two years this month since I listed my first wooden guest book on Etsy! The two periods that really stand out for me from a business perspective were at month #2 + #6. After 2 months in operation, I knew that this was going to work + that I wanted to do this full time.

At 6 months I took the plunge + started working full time on my business! It had been a big goal of mine since I was a teenager to have a successful online business + I'm really grateful to now be living my dream.

The Wedding Guest Book Co came about when I was working with a friend as a designer at his CNC Workshop (Computer Numerical Control). He had taught me how to operate the laser equipment + he always encouraged his staff to use the equipment + make things in their own time.

I had a friend ask if I could make a wedding guest book for him to give as a gift + that is where it all started. I spent time prototyping + playing around for a couple of months until I was happy with the design. I really wanted to make sure that it wasn't just beautiful but also functional.

The enquiries started flowing in after placing a 'brag' photo (I was very proud of my efforts!) of my final creation on Facebook to show family + friends. I've since set up my Etsy store + a stand alone website + the rest is history!

Before it all kicked off, my initial concept was to create something to showcase our bespoke Tasmanian timbers to the world. After working with Tasmanian timbers for so long it was really obvious to me how special a handmade guest book really was to have to collect memories in from your wedding day.

Our concept is to keep our designs simple yet elegant so that the wood is the real feature of the guest book. And also to offer a fully customised book so that every aspect is unique.

From our customers selections that create an outline for us, we then get to work and put it all together to create the perfect guest book for the perfect day!
