Guest Book

Hi Ladies,Trying to think of something different instead of a guest book or picture frame for guests to sign.  If you did something different, I would love to hear!Thanks.

    originally we were going to do a photobook, but eventually ended up painting our own platter for guests to sign... we have it on display right now, but i figure we may also use it for holidays... picture in my bio!

    I'm doing a "wish bowl" - a large glass vase and index cards, essentially.  I have a poem that asks the guests for their advice, and the cards are all decorated with rubber stamps.   The supplies cost about $4 (vase and cards) and I did the stamping with a friend of mine who has a huge collection.  After the wedding, I'll put them into a photo album with all of my RSVPs.   I didn't want a traditional guest book, with just everyone's signatures.  I knew I'd NEVER look at it, and this way it's more interesting, since the guests will give good wishes and advice.

    I struggled with this a bit too. For my shower I got a WEdding memory book (which I'd never seen) and I thought is was just great. It's like a baby book for a wedding, when we met, the proposal, planning shower b parties etc. it even has places for pictures. Then there is a section for guests too. I'm definately more likely to look at it as a whole. My favorite thing though? My SIL did a photobooth B&W strips style.  she asked guests to keep some and add some to the album and sign. Out of my price range but I jsut love that idea!

    Love the wedding memory book idea!We are doing a "Polaroid-type" guest book.  We'll have an instant camera, have someone snap photos of our guests, and then have a scrapbook, some photo stickies and fun pens available for them to sign around their picture.  It's an expensive project but it's the only guest book idea that really got my attention.  I absolutely love it.

    Love Chayer's wish book idea, I wanted something like that done at my shower but of course I didnt mention it to anyone so how would they have known?Anywho, I did a photoalbum that I made on Shutterfly where I uploaded pictures of us starting from when we started dating all the way up to our engagement pictures.  I left spaces on the pages for people to leave us a note.  It's still kind of a guestbook but I think I will look at it more because it has pictures of us in it.  People loved it and it came out great!

    We did 2 things. I painted a platter and guests were able to sign that. I also had individual pages made and placed at all the tables with pens for people to fill out. It had a place for their names, How do you know the bride or groom? What is your fondest memory of the bride or groom? and a Well wishes section. We got some really funny ones :) I'll put all the pages into a book I had made and will be including table pictures we had made and other guest photos from the reception.

    We did a photobooth.  Photos came out four up.  I had pages and scrap book supplies next to it, and guests cut up their strips, pasted them on a page, wrote a note and left in our basket.  I've yet to tie the pages all together, but I LOVE looking at them.
