Im so confused. Im starting to purchase some of the little things for the wedding, like the guestbook, cardbox/birdcage, cake cutting knives, etc, etc… but Is the guestbook the same thing as a well wishes??? Or do you typically do both?
I have my eye on this guestbook:
& I was considering this well wishes box if I needed both:
So do I need both? Also, what other little things do I need so I dont forget??
I have the garters, menu, & program so far. I dont want to forget little things! Help me bees.

The guest book the guests just write their names, never heard of/seen a well wishes but I assumed they would write a message to you. We’re only doing a standard guest book.

@Barbiestylez: Guest book is basic information on who has attended. A well wishes item such as a box, thumbprint tree, photo frame etc encourages people to write personal messages to the bride and groom.
When I have attended weddings that had both I did not actaully do both. I found it a bit redundant and unnecessary. If I had to choose I would go with the well wishes box or a modified guestbook allowing for personal messages.

@Treejewel19: So you think I should just do the well wishes instead?? I like the idea of the guestbook because it can be easily stored and looked at later in life….

@Barbiestylez: I think well wishes are more personal, and you can always collect them and put them in a book to store and read later.

@Barbiestylez: Can you do two in one? I would think so

They’re two different styles of the same thing. I think the little papers in the well wishes are good because people can take them to their seat and work on them (before putting them in a book) instead of lining up for a quick signature.

@Barbiestylez: I personally prefer the well wishes and that is what we did. There are many options for the well wishes that would be easily stored. You could even make a scrap book out of the papers that your guests write on.

@Barbiestylez: I made a guestbook with pictures on shutterfly and I put a column where they can put their name, and then a column to put well wishes on the pages to write….so it’s like a combined well wishes and guestbook 🙂
