@oxstardust421xo:  At the time I was planning my wedding, I didn’t know about all of the creative ways couples now collect signatures from their weddings guests, so mine may seem pretty boring. However, I wanted something that coordinated with my wedding — something elegant that matched my dress and that had some bling on it. 🙂

@oxstardust421xo:  I got mine from Amazon. Think it was like $7. There are so many to choose from and I got a matching pen also.

I created our guest book on Mixbook. It’s at home so I just took screen shots of the order. 🙂 It turned out really well in person, though. I chose a hard cover and I didn’t use any lines or blank areas. I also rotated between using two pictures and one picture to take up two pages. (See below) We are going to get white/silver fine tip markers/pens for the guests to sign directly on the picture in the areas around us.

@oxstardust421xo:  I’m making mine a joint photobook/guestbook combo. I got becky higgens page dividers and midnight edition journal cards, and am putting them into a scrapbook album I got from Michael’s. 

It’ll be like this, but with the journal cards being guest notes!

We got ours from Hobby Lobby! A giant letter S and some black spray paint. We will paint it and have everyone sign it in silver & gold sharpies to hang in our home. 🙂

We bought a large coffee table book of photos of the city where we live and got married, and invited people to write their wedding wishes inside the book — on the inner covers and the white space around the photos.  It’s totally fun and something that we enjoy displaying in our living room.  The book is divided up by neighborhood, so it’s especially neat to see which neighborhoods people chose to leave their notes in!

I made mine.  Each table number was a guest book with a picture puzzle cover.  The guests were given escort cards with a puzzle piece inside each one that corresponded to the table they were sitting at.

My daughter’s came from Designer Shindigs on Etsy:

 

She does some beautifully decorated ones, but we wanted the plain book with removable satin bow.  Thanks to Jane’s very detailed instructions, I was able to remove the bow and replace it with a glittery snowflake that matches the wedding decor.  Sorry I don’t have a photo of the finished product – my florist already has it boxed up to deliver to the reception.  The customer service was beyond excellent, and I highly recommend this Etsy seller.  Good luck!

Michael’s. It was super pretty on the outside, with just lined pages on the inside. A warning though, each person/family only signed one line, so they only filled three pages!I wish I had known about all the creative things people do for guestbooks, but that’s okay. I’m going turn the rest into a wedding scrapbook someday when I have time.
