sandy85:  Friends of mine had their guests each sign smooth black rocks with silver sharpies. Their name on one side and piece of advice on the other and then put them in a large bowl/vase in their home. It was really cute and it’s fun to pull them out and read them.

We got a print off of Etsy that is a big poster with Cinderella’s castle on one side, cartoon versions of me and hubby on the other, holding balloons – then the balloons fill up the rest of the print like they’re floating, and we had people sign the balloons. It is now hanging on our wall and I absolutely love it.

We are major hockey fans, so we had our guests sign the back of our favorite team’s hockey jersey. We had our last name and the year (12) also on the back. It was a huge hit!

I saw someone do quilt squares recently and loved it!

We are making a wooden Lazy Susan.  We got everything from Home Depot. I think it came out to about $17.00.  We have the poly to go over the signatures.

sandy85:  There’s loads of ideas out there, it depends what you like and what ties in with your theme / style. We’re having a vintage theme and we’re having people sign vinyl records of the important songs in our wedding, 1st dance etc., we’re staging it with a gramophone. I went through loads of ideas before I hit on this though, a few below;

we’re doing a snowboard that we plan to mount up on the wall in our future home 🙂 but that’s because snowboarding is a big part of our lives and relationship lol (he propsosed at Mt Tremblant too!). Don’t worry so much about being “unique” and more about something you’ll love to look at 🙂

We had a Beatles theme, and we used the inside of the White Album as our guestbook. Afterward I used Record frames, and hung them in our living room. If you like any bands that have plain-ish covers it looks really awesome!

sandy85:  What are you and your FI into? Friends of mine had guests sign records (they were huge music fans), my sister had everyone sign a platter (my sister was always the hostess), another friend of mine had everyone sign a globe (she and her now husband travel all the time). Pinterest is also going to give you some fabulous ideas! Even another Bee posted within the last couple of days about having guests sign an end table. Literally, if you can write on it, it’s a guest book.

For FI and I, we had a custom portrait of us done Tim Burton-style. We are going to have that matted so people can sign it.

We used The Joy of Cooking. People signed on receipes, cover, index and just generally wherever they felt. It was super neat though for someone who is as particular about books as I am (no book shall be damaged or written in! It’s the law!) it was kinda nerve wrecking.

Steph77:  I just have to say, I LOVE your album idea. Way too cool. I wish I had done that.

We did a Quaker-inspired marriage certificate. In our eyes, you don’t get married in a vacuum . . . and the people at the wedding are the ones who have inspired you and supported you up until the point where you decided to marry, helping to make each of you who you are. They are also the people that you will turn to when things get tough. So everyone signs the marriage certificate as witnesses. Not that it’s legally binding (we did the normal paperwork with my brother and dad as the witnesses).
