How are you planning on displaying them after your wedding? That may help determine the size. And from there you may be able to use a recipe card type template and just change the wording to suit your needs.

If you are willing to spend a little money, you could get them printed for you in color with a cute little image.

Like these are $9.99 for 100, just delete the text they have and write in your own. http://www.vistaprint.com/gallery.aspx?pg=5&preid=1&category_id=1017&xnav=VHubProductLink
(I did this for notes on my favors)
 

OR if you have microsoft word or other program like it…. look at your templates and find the size you want.  Then you can just fill it in with what you want.

I second Schatzie821.  I printed ours at vistaprint.  Iprinted the first side on the glossy front of the postcard and the second on the matte side – for guests to write on.  Here’s an example of ours:

Front

Back

 

We did postcard size because we’d like to collect them in a photo album after, but I’ve seen business card size too (which may take a little pressure off guests, because there is less space for them to fill up).  We’re going to leave them on the guest tables with colored pencils so guests can take their time writing/drawing up something… and hopefully that will alleviate the pressure to be clever on the spot at the guestbook table, too.

We’re actually doing cards that guests can hang on a wish tree (similar to the design Banana-bee suggested). We’re doing 3 versions from which guests can choose: “Love Is…”  “Once Upon a Time…”  and “We Wish You…” I’m printing them 6 to a page to give folks room to write. 

Never underestimate the “power” of PowerPoint (forgive me, it’s late). PowerPoint handles graphics and text much better than Word. I’m happy to help, so let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
