I’d be scared of getting paint on my clothes (as a guest)….. or having paint drop on the floor and then get tracked in by guests into the venue.  Can you use something other than paint?

how many guests are you having?

oh no.  I’m terribly clumsy.  I guarantee you paint would end up somewhere it doesn’t belong.

I agree about the paint dropping, but if you had different coloured nice markers for people to use it would be a good idea!! Sounds cute!

I wouldn’t sign it.  I have messy handwriting to begin it, and I’d be a disaster with paint.  Plus I’d probably end up having more on my hands than on the canvas.

I like the idea of you guys painting portraits of each other, but I would not want to paint on it myself.  Could you do a border around it?  Or even sharpies to write on it?  The paint idea just sounds messy to me.

I agree with PPs; paint might be too messy.  Can you do nice pens or markers instead?

It sounds cute in theory, but I think you’ll miss out on a lot of the fun personal messages guests typically like to write by their names!  I could manage to paint my name, but I wouldn’t have the skill/patience to paint a “Congratulations, so happy for you!” or a nod to a funny inside joke or anything like that.  I very rarely just sign my name in guest books, but in this case that’s all I could manage.

Could you have your fiance paint portraits of both of you and display them near the guest book?

@shunduh:  I think having each is the best compromise!

What if this ends up being a hot mess?  Do you want to hang it up in your house?

would you be open to changing to sharpies instead of paint?
