DIY Weddings

diy guest book

I have now decided to make our guest book! I found a really cute journal with blank pages at Micheals and it has burlap on it. So instead of just leaving blank pages I want to have some writing prompts for the guests to use. I don't want just signatures...where's the fun in that?! So, I found some cute writing prompts, but I'm looking for a few more. Does anyone have any good/funny ones that the have seen or like? Any suggestions are appreciated!

    What do you have so far?
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14
  • Favourite memory of the couple, date ideas, marriage advice, something they're looking forward to at the wedding?  Maybe have a mad-lib style page in there?

    In theory, I understand you wanting to make the guest book meaningful.  However, the reality is that most guests probably won't want to spend 5+ minutes taking the time to form thoughts and write about memories or advice. 

    Most guests will write a quick sentence or two and sign their names.  You also run the risk of guests not signing the book at all because they don't want to wait in a long line to write their thoughts.

    If you really want this idea to be successful, you might be better off placing a page or two on each table.  The guests would have more time to write something meaningful, and be more comfortable doing it while seated, versus standing at a table.
  • If there are people lining up behind me, I'm signing my name and moving on. Might have more luck at the table but once food hits the table, I'm done writing.
