Never heard of it but it’s sounds really interesting. It seems like it would be a lot of work and not necessary at all but a nice little touch! Kind of a waste though, what do you do with all the books after?

@Birdee106:  Haha I was wondering the same thing!  I can’t imagine hanging onto this book of people with facts about them but at the same time I would feel bad throwing it away!

 

Cute idea but it seems like a LOT of unnecessary work.

My FBIL and his wife did this for their destination wedding, but there were less than 25 people there. It was nice because everyone actually interacted with each other because there were so few people, and they made it funny so it was cute. But I wouldn’t do it myself for a large wedding.

I saw on an episode of Four Weddings that the couple did something like that but only for the people at their table.  It was set up like a constellation and she drew lines between the stars (representing the people) which then had a short point about what they might have in common.  I truthfully don’t remember if anyone looked at them or commented, but that’s not the point of the show anyway.  lol

Some of my brides have used this idea. I believe it’s referred to as a “Memory Lane” guest book. 

I have had brides do it 2 ways –

1. In the invitation they print a note on the response card asking each guest to bring a small picture of themselves to the ceremony. At the ceremony when they sign in thy attach their picture and a small comment. It’s then displayed at the reception for other guests to view.

2. On the response card they ask the guest to send a small picture of themselves or them with the bride/and it groom back with the response card. The bride/groom will then put the album together ahead of time and write ther own comment next to each guests photo.

Hope this helps.

that sounds expensive, labor-intensive and wasteful. Sorry to be a wet blanket, but I can’t think of anything I dig about this idea. I have a messageboard linked to my wedding website where people can virtually hang out and it barely gets used. If that’s any indication of how people would treat a book that it took me months to make, no thanks.

I don’t know the name of it, but I think it sounds like an awesome idea! Especially for a small party. It’s no more wasteful than an invitation and save the date, which can all be done electronically now, LOL. You could also do an e-book, but I think it looses a little bit of it’s charm.

Labor intensive… maybe, but I love projects like these so it’s really up to whether you would get joy out of it or now Smile. I am having around 30 guests to keep it intimate, so I can do things like this and have fun with it. Thanks for sharing!
