I would leave out smaller pieces of paper–like origami paper or index-sized cards in pretty paper–for people to write on!

@kestane:  are you doing any type of photo booth or just a typical guest book? if your doing the photo booth, maybe have the attendent hand them a paper (about the size of a  index card, [make them all different colors or just the colors of your wedding theme] and have them kinda keep them organized [stick everthing in an envelope so photo and signed card are together])  if no photo booth i would do like a wishing well type thing (depending on your wedding theme maybe something else- [wishing well, wooden box, glass block a smaller “card box” type box for  “wishing the new couple well” or “tips for the newlyweds” something cute have a bunch of paper and different color pens on the table (with a note saying PLEASE DO NOT FOLD)

I would go with light colored cardstock in your wedding colors cut into smaller size pieces. Then the person making your scrapbook can cut them as needed to fit the design.

@kestane:  I would just do the different colored cards. If I were designing a scrapbook for someone, I would want the flexibility to be able to punch or cut those cards into whatever shape fit my design, as opposed to having to work with a square on this one and a heart on this one, etc. Just my personal opinion. Why don’t you ask the person making the scrapbook for you what their personal preference would be?

Also, make sure you get good quaility scrapbooking pens for the people to use to sign. Otherwise, your colors made fade.

@kestane:  I would try and get a blue ombre pack and cut it into a few different sized cards for people to sign (i would ask your friend what size book she’s planning on doing so you have an idea what the biggest sized piece she could work with is).  Make sure you get archival pens and acid free paper though or your ink may fade/bleed/change colour!
