I was thinking of this as a gust book alternative… something fun that would get the guests involved. What do you all think? Would you fill something like this out if you were to go to a wedding of a friend or family member?

@Mrs.H2B: We were thisclose to doing something like this but went with a thumbprint tree instead! I love the idea!

i would, but do you think the older non creative people would?

@Mrs.H2B: It’s different and cute. I say go for it.

We did something like that but stuck it in the programs at the ceremony rather than on the table (we had a regular guestbook on the table) so people wouldn’t be standing around the guestbook table writing a whole page of stuff. It worked out quite well.

do you think I could put one at each place setting so that before people begin eating they could fill them out then?

@Mrs.H2B: I’m sure you could do it. I don’t see how that would cause any problems unless you’re going to eat right away and they will have nowhere to place their food. I like the programs idea.

I love the idea… I agree if you put the cards at each of the tables more people wil probably respond and they will have more time to think of thoughtful things… I would maybe have the people in your wedding party and close family members fill theirs out during the rehersal dinner and have them out during the wedding so the wedding guests can get an idea of what other people wrote on the cards as well!

I really like the idea of individual cards. 🙂 I’m not sure I’m crazy about some of those questions, though… I know it’s a wedding and supposed to be all about you, but really, those are the types of questions one only likes to hear about themselves, not answer. 😛 “Where I was when I heard about the engagement…” I don’t know, I’d feel so silly asking my guests that. It’s a cute idea, though.
Personally I would want my guests to write their OWN thoughts and wishes. We have some characters in the family so I’m sure they’ll come up with funny stuff. 🙂

As a guest, I’d love filling that out. Unless I didn’t know them super well (as in, I was someone’s +1), but I guess in that situation you don’t really have to fill it out.

Honestly I think that’s better for a bridal shower not for the wedding.
