    I wouldn’t want something as decor in my home that had signatures all over it. I think it sounds romantic but I doubt that you would be using it a few years from now.

    What about having them sign the back of the door, so you can look at the signatures when you want to?

    I think it’s a cute idea BUT you want to keep your guest book forever, are you going to  keep that door for like 50 years?! If you say yes I say go for it but if you don’t think you’ll hold onto it forever I think you’ll regret it.

    I like it. I think you can reuse the door in a number of ways if you change your mind about using it as a headboard. You could throw a sheet of glass over it and use it as a desk or table.

    Alternately, if it has panels, you could cut out the panels and do inserts that you have the guests sign, and then you could swap them out with photos, upholstery etc if you ever got tired of seeing the signatures.

    Hmm well it sounds cute in theory but I don’t know how I would like it once it was complete.

    When I think of signatures/writing on a door I think of teenage boys and their rooms where all their friends write on the doors and walls etc in sharpies of various colors. To me it can end up looking very messy.

    If you want something to display why not consider a photo for people to sign? That is what I am doing. We choose our favorite e-pic and the guests will sign the matte. Just an idea.

    I wouldn’t want my wedding guests’ signatures over my bed. Kind of a mood killer.

    I think it’s a neat idea for something in the home, but the logistics (who is going to move that big heavy door on wedding day?) seems like it would be a problem.

    @bakerella:  THIS is a good idea, and i LOVE the door idea, but I don’t think i would use it as a headboard with all those signatures on it, I don’t know…  That is just something I wouldn’t do.

    But i do think this is a FABULOUS idea, and if it fits your personality (which obviously it does) then go for it!  That is something people will talk about for a long time I think.
