Your Wedding Guestbook Re-designed with Joy Anthology

Are you married? If so, where is your wedding guestbook right now? Did you even look through the names on your book to see who all attended your wedding? My point exactly! I know that I didn’t, and for those of you getting married soon or planning a future wedding, I have something you and your guests will absolutely love!

Joy Anthology. You probably never heard of it and neither had I until I had the privilege of working on this special project. A mother-daughter duo have created this ingenious idea with both of their backgrounds being professional photographers. Meet Holleen and Becca, the names behind this Iowa-based company, Joy Anthology. You can read more about their story HERE.

They were looking for a way for a new age way to capture the candid and intimate moments with the guests at their wedding. This is where the idea came to fruition. Say hello to the newest trend in wedding guestbooks!

Completely customizable to your taste and decor, this is a 16X20X1.5 inch canvas with 100 photos of your guests at your wedding! (Ideal for weddings 100-300 in size). It is a piece of art. A statement piece. A conversation piece. Memories that will be shared with guests for years to come. Each canvas comes mounted and finished. Your canvas will also include a dust cover, hanging hardware, and wall buddies at no extra charge.

Through a custom mobile-friendly online tool, guests are invited to upload a photo (selfies welcome) to the event’s unique portal. The uploads are then approved by you and are populated into a stunning, artful, canvas print.

Step 1: Create an account with Joy Anthology and design your canvas.

Step 2: Customize your guest experience. There are no downloads or fees for guests to participate! Simply create a sign for your wedding (like the image pictured below) and to tell them how to participate. You will receive a URL special to your wedding where you can share this with guests even before the big day via social media, email, or your wedding website.

Step 3: Complete your purchase and get ready to text, click and submit your guestbook!

Below I have highlighted the most asked questions from brides and if I did not answer your question, feel free to contact them directly HERE.

πŸ™‹πŸΌ What if I have more than 100 guests?

Multiple people can be featured in 1 photo. For instance, 1 family all together or 1 table of guests. Under the photo you can state either the Adams Family OR Table 10.

πŸ™‹πŸΌ Are you worried about what photos are uploaded to your personal site for your canvas?

No problem. You can edit and choose what is added and not added in case Uncle Eddy gets a little tipsy from the punch πŸ˜‰

πŸ™‹πŸΌ What if guests don’t have social media?

All good. You can share the link via email or your wedding website as well.

πŸ™‹πŸΌ What if my guests forget to upload a photo at my wedding?

Your guests have 3 days after the event to submit photos.
