There’s no question about it, you need a vow book. You may first consider the most obvious reason: to write down and recite your vows. And same with a wedding guest book: to gather the names of those witnessing your union. But the team at The Art of Etiquette believes that vow books, wedding guest books, anniversary books, and more go beyond simple practicality. With The Wedding Collection, they’ve created heirloom archival-quality books that will get the job done, but not without a surprise or two tucked between the pages.
These keepsakes were intentionally created to both surprise and delight for years to come. Instead of packing them away to gather dust, you’ll find a series of ongoing love notes, earmarked for future celebrations, for example. Not a one-time book, but an ongoing lifeforce that demands your books stay close at hand before you pass them on to the generations to come.
We know you’re curious, so let’s take a peek inside some of The Art of Etiquette’s most popular books to get a closer look. And speaking of surprises, keep reading to the end to something special just for our GWS readers!
