I had an idea for a guestbook, but I haven’t been able to find any examples of it online. I was thinking of gluing individual envelopes into an album, and having cards that guests can sign and then place in the envelopes. The thought was that this may elicit more personal responses as what was written wouldn’t be on display like in a traditional guestbook. Has anyone done something like this? Do you think it would work?

i’m doing this! i got the idea from martha. i purchased a guest book from etsy and am gluing 4-bar envelopes to each page, with directions to write us messages for our 1 month, 1 year, 5 year, etc. anniversaries.
i think you’ll definitely elicit more personal and original responses, as people can’t read what everyone else has written.

Martha Stewart has an album similar to what you are describing:

There are some photos of this on Martha’s website.
We are doing something similar – providing 4-bar flat cards for people to write on, which will then be dropped into a basket, for us to place in an album later. We are printing the cards on one side with imagery related to our wedding theme, and will later place them in a pocket-page album so that both sides of the cards are visible. I didn’t think that the envelopes were really necessary – I doubt that people will be going through the basket to read what other people have written, the way they might flip through the pages of a guestbook.

This is a cute idea! I would be too impatient to wait to open them though!
