My guestbook is squares of card-stock that say “Share your advice for the newlyweds!” and has lines to write on.
My question is this: is that enough of an explination for them to understand what to do? I was thinking I needed to make a sign that says what we’re hoping to get out of it (advice, memories, anything nice, etc) I don’t want people to not do it because they aren’t sure what to do with it.
Help me come up with a sign to make, or how to word it at least!
Also, what should I have them put them in when they’re done writing?

In terms of where to put them, I’d just buy a super-cute basket or something if you wanted to collect them that way. You could figure out later if you wanted to put them in a book somehow.
I think it’s a great idea to have a little sign explaining the process.
We had “advice cards” at our wedding. They weren’t in place of our guestbook, but it still worked well. Our DJ put a card at every place setting and then explained to the guests what to do while they were waiting for dinner. He then collected them all and made sure we got them. 🙂

Yes, the way it’s worded already should be enough of an explanation for them to understand.
As far as where to have them put the cards, a nice little basket next to the guest book would be cute, or a silver tray, but make sure it’s deep enough so they don’t slide out. Idea: On the basket you could make a little sign that says: Please put advice cards in the basket.

“Please fill out a card and leave us with your words of wit, wisdom or well wishes for us to open on our one year anniversary”.
Please fill out a card with your wishes, advice, memories or thoughts for the bride and groom.

You could get a pretty glass vase to put them in

You could put them in a decorative box, a birdcage, or you could also attach ribbons to them and have the guests hang them off branches.
I would inlude a picture frame on the table with a sign in it with the phrase jules1949 wrote above.
