We printed a list of our favourite movie couples (our wedding was loosely Hollywood themed) and put our names in the middle. All our guests signed the mat around the frame 🙂 It’s hanging in my hallway right now!

It will be framed and on a big easel. Guests will sign the leaves…

We went with a puzzle guest book purchased from etsy. First two are at the wedding third is how we have it displayed in our house.

When I chose mine back in 2009, I had no idea that people did all of the creative things that they now do for their guest books. Here is mine, along with the accompanying pen:

@MissMudge:  We’re not doing one, or we might do a pad of paper and a box for people to put messages in.  My mom suggested it, because it’s something that can occupy people while they’re waiting for us to arrive at the reception.  That’s the only reason we’re doing it though.  I asked my sister, who got married 10 years ago, if she or my BIL has ever looked at theirs, and she said it’s in a drawer and only comes out when they move.  And they don’t read it, even then.

  • Wedding: October 2013 - Rustic mill, historical site

I sanded down an old crappy guitar I had and didn’t play because it was old and crappy, haha, and I painted it white with a purple pearl at work (I paint cars ).

 

I plan to have fine sharpies and let my guests sign my guitar, which we will then hang somewhere on our wall.   I don’t like the idea of a guest BOOK, which would sit on a shelf on in a box somewhere never to be seen :/

 

 

 

 

I’m hoping it will look like this in the end

@Purple_Bride:  That’s such a cool idea! I bet it will look awesome!

Much like you, I want to avoid something that will just collect dust at our house. Since I love to sew and am notorious for being cold no matter the temperature, we’re planning on having a guest quilt. Each square will be Polaroid, based loosely on the pattern below. Guests will be able to sign in either the photo portion or on the white border. After the wedding, I’ll sew everything together and create a blanket for our living room.

As an update, here’s an example of what it might end up looking like in the end. The base fabrics we’re using are a bit more colorful, but this layout would work nicely.

@flying_hearts:  

 

I did a signature quilt for my fh’s brother’s wedding!!   It was a LOT  of work, but the guests loved it and the couple now displays it in their living room as a wall hanging!    

 

Lemme see if I can dig up some pictures…

 

 Bleh, I only have pictures from before it was assembled and quilted, but you get the idea!   I added a 5 inch border all the way around and it was backed in fleece and quilted free motion style.   The guests signed all the light pieces, and the wedding colours were browns and reds.

 

Edit:  Oh wait, I lied, I did have pictures of it finished!   My camera sucked so the signatures aren’t clear, but they are IRL.
