I am getting married next Saturday and have been stuck on ideas for a guestbook. I don’t like the picture frame idea and the traditional book seems boring. Not sure about wishing trees and other ideas but I need help to plan and execute on a short time frame….Please Bees, any ideas are welcome!!!

Maybe have each guest fill out a card to give you marital advice and have them sign their names on them and place them in a bowl. 🙂

dont flame me for some of these – i know theyre not "normal":
if you guys are football fans – how about buying a bunch of footballs??
using your aisle runner??
taking polarioids and having them sign the bottom white part of the pic or the back with a white pen?
…meanwhile, i bought a 2nd white dress and am using that as our guestbook…

I saw a cute idea where the guests sign squares of fabric in permanent fabric pens and then you (or someone you hire) makes them into a quilt! Don’t know if you can just buy pre-cut squares of fabric or not.
I also like the Polaroids idea.

There was a cool guest "book" on another coordinator’s website that’s along the same lines as Shoes’ suggestion: a baseball, bat and glove.
It kind of depends on if you just want signatures or if you want guests to write something. What kind of wedding are you going for?

I like moreshoesplease’s idea with the polaroid pictures but I would take it a step furthur. Buy a blank-paged scrapbook and decorate the cover to match your theme. Put it in the hands of your Guest Book Table attendant who is also going to be the person taking the pictures. You also could have some crafting/scrapbook supplies at the table like some markers and stickers, etc. After Uncle Harry and Aunt Sally take their picture, the attendant places it in the scrapbook and Harry/Sally decorate their page with well-wishes/signatures/doodles. Ideally, by the end of your reception, your Guest Book Table attendant hands you a lovely hand-made picture guest book! In 20 years, you will be able to look back and show your kids what Uncle Harry and Aunt Sally looked like along with being able to read the words they wrote down for you so long ago.
