I’ve seen wish trees, river rocks that people sign with silver sharpies, thumbprint trees, everyone signing a postcard and dropping it into a mailbox and then having those post cards sent over time…the options are endless!

I used postcards. We got married on a tiny little island and everyone had to travel to get there. i picked up 30 or so different postcards (photographs really) from the island. I even stamped them. Guests seemed to like it and i just stuck them in a photo album after.

I’m doing wine bottles that guests will write notes to us/messages to us and put them in.  We will have 5 bottles, and will open them on our 1st, 3rd, 5th, 10th, and 15th wedding anniversary and read what people wrote.  FUN!

I’ve posted this a few times.  Hope you don’t mind me sharing again.  We had a signature platter.  It’s hanging in the kitchen and we see it every day!

We created envelopes with 1st Anniversary, 2nd Anniversary and so on labeled on the front and then asked our guests to choose an anniversary year and write us a note.  We have no idea who has what years, and are excited to open these as the years go on.  We even had the kids draw us pictures and write us notes as well.  We only had 60 guests, so it was definitely manageable.  There is a kit they sell called Happily Ever Afterwords, which is how I learned of the idea, but I created my own less fancy version for cheap.

We are having a signable picture frame that we will hang on the wall after the wedding.

We also had this gorgeous sign made on Etsy that will stand on the table, telling guests to please sign our “guest frame” as we will hang it in our home.

@TeamMcGowan: My sister did this and it’s beautiful!

We got a coffee table book of Ansel Adam’s photography that we wanted anyway.  We asked our guests to sign next to a photograph that they really enjoyed.  It’s still a book, but a practical book, plus we wanted a nice coffee table book anyway!

We had handkerchiefs that we had people sign and one day we’ll make them into a quilt.  We’re thinking about waiting until we have kids and when we find out the gender, using some of the signed ones and some of the unsigned ones to make a quilt that fits in with their bedroom to hang on the wall.
