FAQ: Shoes and Pens

The two questions that filter in through my e-mail inbox the most relate to the plum peep toe heels I wore on our wedding day and the pens our guests used to write in our blurb guest book. So let's just put the answers to both questions right here in this one little blog post, shall we?

I'm sure you've seen these floating around my blog {here and here}. These hot little numbers were from Bakers {see store locations here} but I cannot, for the life of me, remember the name of the style. For $40, they were a steal. The pain I felt by the time the dance floor opened {from the 4 inch heels} was worth it because of how good my feet looked during the day. If Bakers doesn't have what you are looking for, might I suggest going to stores like Nine West or Steve Madden for some fairly affordable and quite cute shoes. If all else fails, I am quite the fan of the Jessica Simpson shoes at Macy's.

The Blurb Guest Book {which will soon have a place on the coffee table in our new home!} is still talked about to this day between our guests. Undoubtedly, it was the best ~$20 we spent on any reception detail. When it came to deciding how our guests would sign the book, I turned to my first love, the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Permanent Marker {in plum, naturally}. With this marker, the ink won't smear like you might experience with a gel pen and there won't be an indent on the page that a ball point pen might leave behind. And, don't worry, the ink from the sharpie permanent marker didn't bleed through the pages.

We have been toying about guestbook whether to have them or not and I'm loving the Blurb guestbook idea. A lot of people have rave about Blurb and the awesome quality of their books too.

I'm really glad you posted about the guestbook. I just went to their site and am downloading the software! what size book did you get/what kind of paper?

Another past bride told me she got her shoes at Bakers, so I'm hoping closer to spring/summer I can find a cute pair of purple ones!!

thanks for the tips onthe book, did you use your engagement pics and then leave the page next to it blank?
