I’ve done it for two of my cousins’ weddings and I felt so unneccessary.  It’s like, ‘Um, so, here’s the guestbook… you can use this pen to sign it…  thanks.’  I mean, it’s a guestbook – people know what to do.

Sorry to be negative.  Just maybe have someone to keep you company.

Oh, I guess I also took cards from people.

I had to do that for my brother’s wedding.  All I did was stand next to the table and asked the guests if they wanted to sign the book.  That’s about it.  Challenging?  Right?  LOL

lol, I did that at my FI’s sister’s wedding. I hated it. The only people that were there were family and they already knew what to do. It was outside, very hot, I had a broken ankle, and I had to stand up on crutches. It was not a good thing for me to do. She is invited to our wedding, but I am not giving her any responsibilities.

I think it depends. What the other ladies said was correct. I did it at a wedding and part fo my job was to accept gifts (stack boxes or put envelopes in the card box, etc.) I think you should ask her what time she wants you there. Usually, you wait until the ceremony is over then pack up the guest book and stuff and put it somewhere (you should discuss this with her ahead of time).

You are so sweet to be so concerned and thoughtful about your duties.  I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I think the bride just wanted you to have a special role because she loves you. I don’t think you have to be at your station any longer than 30-45 minutes as guests arrive, and if I were you, I’d grab a friend to hang out with and/or a drink.

You might have to corral people to sign the guest book.  We didn’t have an attendant and had to have the DJ make an announcement to let them know it was there.
