you get to customize your bride (even dress style) and groom (facial hair and kilt available) to reflect your particular pairing, and also your banner color. sweet!

she also makes matchbook calendar favors, gift tags, and all manner of lovely paper things.

bella puzzles: wedding guest book wooden puzzles

bella Photo Wedding Puzzle (guest book), 110 pieces, custom puzzle personalized with words & shapes, wood, 17 x 21 inches
{ photo wedding puzzle guest book }

cool. Lara makes custom wooden guest book puzzles -- stumbled across this great idea in an etsy blog post on beating creative burnout (erm...) so pls. forgive if you've seen elswhere...

you can get them with a photo, a color, or plain wood. you can get a rectangular puzzle or one shaped like a tree or your state/country. you can get your names carved as pieces. or a heart. or a monkey, or anything you want. people sign the backs of the pieces with the pens (included! so considerate). you could even use them as place cards. plus anyone who takes a scrollsaw class and whose talents are "making mischief and making art" must be supported.

[maybe i like this idea so much because my grandmother's typewriter (i know, so 2010) had a meltdown at our reception and refused to work. may or may not have had to do with toddlers. it works *now* of course, just not then -- we have these random 3-word haiku running down the left side of the paper. anyway. moral of that story: have a pen handy. anyway.]

there's a nice symbolism here -- we assemble our weddings, our marriages, and our lives from our families and friends, and so it's not just a picture of you, it's your community coming together and every piece is critical. sweet.

Lara also cuts puzzles for other occasions (baby shower, birthday, retirement, bat mitzvah) --
