If we have a traditional guest book, do we also need a “wishing well” or something similar, or can we go without? Personally, I think having both is overkill, and we already have the guest book, so just going with the wishing well and not the guest book isn’t an option. I’m willing to forgo the wishing well, but my FMIL asked me about it, so I thought I’d pose the question to you guys…

I have never even heard of a wishing well until the Bee. I think you’re fine to have just the guest book 🙂

As far as I know, a wishing well serves as a different purpose from a guest book (it is more like a card box, right?). One is to collect cards/donations, the other is for people to sign and let you know they were at your wedding along with a nice message etc. I think it would be perfectly fine to have both.

Perhaps it’s different in different regions, but around here, a wishing well is just a box for depositing cards (or money) for the couple. So fairly different to the guest book

i think you’re fine with just a guestbook.
we just had a guestbook, but at my bridal shower, we had a tree of wisdom. guests wrote marriage advice on little pieces of paper and hung them on the branches.
maybe you could have the wishing well at your shower if it’s something you still want to have.

PS–a wishing well can be something like this:

We’re doing a “card box” (which is actually a birdcage) for the cards/$.
