    I think they are both very cool – I have never seen that done before!

    I think the map would be easier to display somewhere in your house or apartment as opposed to the globe, simply because you could hang it up on the wall and not need a stand or a desk to put it on, but either way you go would look great!

    They’re both adorable, but I think the map makes more sense logistically.  It is easier to hang, and it’s also easier for people to sign on a flat surface.

    I love the idea of the globe but agree with PPs that a map will probably be easier for you to display in your home. And easier to transport back from your wedding.

    I like the globe most but unless you’re not having many guests you might run out of space! Love them both.

    I actually like the map more. The example you’ve shown is really pretty 🙂

    I don’t think it’s odd at all, but I think I get your uncertainty. I’ve had a few “Oh, that’s unusual/different” comments regarding some wedding choices, and it can be off-putting. They weren’t even weird things, like having a signature drink.

    People may find it “odd” just because they haven’t seen it done before. It’s fits, go for it.

    Man, I know that a globe is harder to display, but I LOVE IT!  I’m kind of for it. 🙂

    Love love love the idea of both of these, but the framed map will be easier to write on and display later.

    Love both of these ideas. I think it would be more difficult to write on the globe, plus you may run out of room! I’d say go with the map.

    🙂

    I love both ideas. The globe slightly more, but I see what people are saying about the map being easier.

    We are having a travel theme and we are going to ask our guests to fill in postcards, and display them in a vintage suitcase at the reception, so we can read them on our honeymoon and then once we’re home we’ll frame them on our wall.  Just wanted to share another idea, if it helps?

    @Soon2BD-CBee: your postcard idea is a really good one. I had a similar concept with index cards, and I did it because I’d noticed at my brother’s wedding that people really liked being able to grab a card from the guestbook table and take it away to write on somewhere else – rather than waiting until the one guestbook is free to be written in. it worked really well for us, people liked having their own space to fill up and we got advice, funny drawings, jokes, recipes, stories etc. people saw other guests writing on the cards and were asking each other ‘oh what are those cards? I want to write some!’ and they’d grab a stack for the table for everyone to fill out. we stuck them all in a book, so we still ended up with a traditional style guest book but the content is way better because people didn’t have to write in it quickly then pass it on.

    @Jade06: if it’s between those two, I’d say the map because if it’s big, then more than one person can write on it at once. but I think the PP’s postcard idea is better!

    I want to do the globe idea – but I have too many people for it 🙁
