BYOB, Bring Your Own Brand

Apr 26

By Real Bride, Morghan Ruggles

Recently married, Morghan and Tell came up with a wonderful “guestbook” idea that will last for years. Now, we’ve seen wood and hide being branded during the ceremony as a sign of unity, but this couple took a step further and included their guests.

“My husband and I wanted to do something unique at our wedding, but we wanted our guests to be apart of it too. We are very sentimental people and wanted something personal for us. My husband and I built this table and told our bridal party/guests to BYOB or bring their own brands! On the table we have 11 brands that belong to our bridal party, 1 brand belongs to our friend who officiated our wedding. Another brand is actually Tarleton State University’s brand (where I went to school) and the others are close friends”.

“This was a fun alternative to a guest book and I encourage other newly engaged couples to think outside the box and incorporate your guests at the wedding! We plan to add more brands throughout the years and fill it up!! We recently moved from Texas to New Mexico and we can’t wait to add all our new friends’ brands to the table.”

When Morgan shared this with us, we knew we had to share it with you. How can you incorporate family history and your lifestyle into your guestbook? We, like Morghan and Tell, challenge you to create a guestbook with your own twist!
