    I made a photo book on picaboo. I used our engagement photos, some regular photos I have taken and photos from when we were kids. I left every other page blank for people to sign. I think it is much more "modern" than they typical guest book and I think I will actually look at it again (here's hoping!)

    My friends and I paint pottery occassionally (we use it as an excuse to get together and drink wine!).  The woman at the pottery place suggested I get a very large serving plate and have guests sign the plate and then that can be my momento.  She showed me an example of it and I loved it and I might possibly do it!

    last weekend i was at my reception site to pay some bills and we glanced in a room to see how it was decorated. we saw a guest book that was like a photobook but the pages you could write on with a dry erase marker. it was the nicest guest book i have ever seen and the pen was even attached. i haven't looked into yet, but the company name on the back was zook binders. if any one else has done something like this or used them i would be super curious, because the end product looked amazing.

    If it's dry erase, doesn't that mean it could rub off?

    I hand-made my own photobook and used a photo archive pen (scrapbooking) for people to sign yearbook-style. I've heard of people having wish stones--smooth river rocks that people sign or write meesages on with paint pens and the couple can keep in a decorative jar. I've also heard of people having a personalized bottle of wine for each significant anniversary (1st, 5th, 10th, etc.) that people sign so that when they open it to drink on their anniversary they can read the messages. (I think this only works if you get wine that ages well, though!)

    We are doing the serving platter. I have also seen where a couple has the guests sign a photo mat. That way you can actually display it after the wedding and not just put it in a drawer somewhere.

    Thank you ladies for all the good ideas.  I love the plate idea as well but I also love the scrapbook idea, maybe that will be my DIY project.  Laughing
