So here is my guestbook:
I’m doing an unconventional thing. I have my guestbook filled with blank pages. I have cut out squares and cute washi tape. Each family will sign and write a little note on the square then tape it in the book. The scissors are to cut the tape.
Here is a little more of a break down of it all:
Here’s the tape:
I want there to be 4 squares per page. I plan to make a sign at the table so everyone knows what to do I’m just not sure on the wording. Any ideas bees?

Leave your wishes for the Mr & Mrs.
(I would have the first page already done. Like maybe get your bridal party to do theirs now and tape them in. People will figure it out from there.)

Do you have any teens guests (neices, cousins) that can attend the table? We had a thumbprint tree and a woodslice for signatures and didnt want folks to write on the tree or thumbprint the wood… so we had teen neices monitor the table and help the guests know what to do. They only needed to be there for a short time, at the beginning., but it helps to have someone watching who is aware of your vision to keep things in line.

Have you considered having the squares already taped in the book? Or gathering the cards after the wedding and attaching them yourself later? It just seems like potentially a lot of crafting for guests to be doing, and there may not be enough time for several people to be around the book at the same time.

@babylou:Ya know that what that sounds like a good idea for some reason in my bridal brain I didn’t even think of that! I think I will just do that 🙂

You could get a cute frame and put the instructions in it beside the book..
or, I like what @babylou: suggested. Could you put the squares out, have a sign that says ‘leave wishes for the Mr and Mrs” and then have a small basket out for the guests to drop their wishes in so you can assemble it yourself when you have time after the wedding?
