So I have been running through a million and one options to Guest Books. They used to just be a book people wrote their names in and you filled it in later with what gift they gave. (I guess to make them really want to send a gift) and variations of that still float around. But, most of us are doing something WAY different. We had the idea that we would use the photo mats that people sign but rather than having one place for a picture, we would have two. And after the wedding we would put our vows to eachother in each of those spaces so that we had a reminder of the vows we wrote to eachother with the signatures of every person that was there to witness them.
So how are you doing your guest book?

I actually went to Shutterfly and made a photobook. I put in pictures of us in the order of our relationship, starting with our first photo ever taken of us all the way to our engagement photos. I left a lot of white space around the pictures so people can sign around the pics of us.
I paid extra to have it leather bound and I added in a few extra pages and I only spent about $65. I’m really happy with it too. Also, people can spend time looking through it and get to dive into ‘US’ a little more.

I’m planning on doing a wishing tree.
Since it’s a fall wedding, I’ll have a tree made of manzanita branches and the tags people hang from it are gold and copper colored maple leaves.

I like to digital scrapbook, so I’m using pictures of us throughout our relationship and making little areas for ‘words of wisdom’ that anyone might like to pass on, or just white space for them to sign their names. In the back I will put an area where we can write down the names of anyone who gave us a gift and what it was.
I like that this adds a personal touch and gives the guest an opportunity to share with us rather than just write their name down.
