@oxstardust421xo:  i did the groupon and an 8×11 (8″ high 11″ wide) with a preset template. It turned out AWESOME.

@oxstardust421xo:  We did, we got a 12×12 book with a coupon we had for about $20. I love it so much. We used a Shutterfly wedding template that matched our colors and inserted some quotes we like. Also don’t forget to get some fine tip sharpies, pens don’t work on the slick sheets. Every other page is a guest signing page.

I did a 8×11 and made my own layout and loved how it came out.   these were my pages.  I had 140 guests, but not everyone ended up signing.  It was year book style blank space, no lines.

@oxstardust421xo:  I’m not sure, my wedding is in a few weeks!  We got a special marker made for photopaper, acid free, on amazon.  The template we used had blank pages, fill in the blanks, special pages for the bridal party,  open pages with “topics” to write about, and some pages where the photos are checkerboards and the white boxes can also be signed in.  It took us a few hours to import all the pics we decided to use, and we changed a couple page’s layouts, but it showed up the following week in perfect condition!

My BFF did. It was so cute!! We wrote on it with small sharpies, and it went well.

I used an 8×11 shutterfly guestbook. It was really cool and fun. I used mainly the template that was already provided cuz I just am not very creative. I made some arrangement changes here and there but not too much. It turned out really nice overall. I included areas on several pages where guests could write wishes and advice and it got filled up. I was really happy with how it turned out.

We did an 8×11 with regular (not lay-flat) pages and it turned out really well!  We used one of the guestbook formats they had, but I changed some of the pages to add more writing space.  I thought it was really easy to use and customize.  Haven’t used it yet, but the quality seems very nice for the price and it seems pretty comfortable to write on.

@pinkshoes:  We did ours yearbook style as well. I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I’d heard from another bee that Sharpies didn’t work well for her, so I got these pens which I’ve been able to write on shiny magazine pages with, so I hope they’ll work okay! 

ETA: Oh yeah, we didn’t get the lay-flat pages either. I’d read a bunch of reviews where people said they weren’t lining up correctly and their photos just looked really wonky, so I thought it was a lot of extra money to pay for something that might not work.
