I looooooooooove the wishing tree!  Especially if you can add little crystals or bling so it sparkles along with the papers!

I’m doing a wish jar (I think – I’m so sick of DIY projects lately) and I’m doing a guest picture frame.  I have a large frame with a large matte that people can sign.  We don’t have a pic of us to put in it, so I bought a nice print off Etsy that goes with my theme.  I thought that this way, we could hang it up after. I got it at michaels a heck of a lot cheaper than any website.

I like wish jar idea or wish tree idea because you could hang that up too. I want to read what people will write as advice/wishes!

We talked about doing a wishing tree or fingerprint tree, as I hate ‘traditional’ just sign it guestbooks.

In the end we’re going with a print of our last name that uses photos for the letters and we’ll have guests sign it.

Whatever you go with – ensure you have a talkative friend or someone to help encourage guests to do it. 

Many weddings I’ve seen as a coordinator never get as menu people to do their guestbook as they could have with someone pushing them 😉

I’m doing cigar boxes with postcards of Cuba for each table (fiance is Cuban) you can do the box idea that you like and then put postcards of different places that mean a lot to you.

We are using http://www.guestbookstore.com/ and I’m super excited about it!  It’s a guest book, with a fun twist and I think it’s going to be a great keepsake to look back on.

We used the photos from our engagement photoshoot to create a photobook with wide margins.  That, a pair of enthuisastic teenagers and a handful of Sharpies equaled out to my favorite keepsake from the wedding.


My two teenaged “flower girls” were in charge of making sure everyone signed. They carried it with them everywhere: the open house, the rehearsal dinner, the reception, etc.  Most wrote heart-felt notes that we enjoy rereading.  Best of all?  It gave us something to do with the engagement photos and it’s easily stored / displayed. 

We used My Publisher, which has really easy drag & drop templates, that you can customize as much as you wish.  They have LOTS of sales.  🙂
