I actually used a very large from (from Michaels – 40% off!) and a large mat around one of our engagement pictures.  Everyone signed it  – and now it hangs in the living room!

I have seen people use scrapbooks which blank pages in them…. 

As far as books go, I’ve used Blurb and mixbook.  I preferred mixbook – VERY easy to use!

I bought a big photo album/scrapbook and a few extra pages from Michael’s. I also picked up some photo corners. I took one Polaroid photo – the same size we’re going to take of our guests as they arrive – and put a photo corner on each of its four corners. I pulled the adhesive off the the photo corners and placed the whole thing onto a guestbook page. Then, once I pulled out the photo, I was left with four black photo corners perfectly positioned on the page.

Repeat, oh, about fifty times.

We’ll take Polaroids of our loved ones in front of a ribbon backdrop as they arrive. During cocktail hour, they can come back and sign next to their pictures.

I found a brand new white guest book at a Goodwill for $2. I covered it in black fabric and added the same silver glitter tulle I used on other DIY. The total cost for a custom guestbook was less than $5.

I used shutterfly and made a photo album.  It worked out perfect and everyone signed around the pictures, kind of like a yearbook.

I loved the idea of a photo album because then we can put it out on a coffee table to display.

I also used shuttefly. Mainly because I received a coupon from Daid’s Bridal for a free 12×12  because I purchased my dress from them. I love the book and think it is even worth the $50 it would have cost without the coupon.

Darling Husband built a bench and we had people sign that. It will go in our bedroom (it’s still at my mom’s, we’ve been lazy about bringing things over since the wedding :p)

I was wondering the same thing. 

I had some one tell me that they got a scarpbook at Michels and printed on the 8×8 pages and then placed them in the proctive covers for their guest book.

I’m afraid if I print it on a shutterfly or snapfish or any photo book the pages will be too shiny to write on them- you owuld have to use permanant marker.
