We’re doing a wish tree instead of a guestbook. I’ll be making it out of manzanita branches and we’re using gold and copper maple leaf shaped tags for people to write their well wishes on, since it’s a fall themed wedding. But there are plenty of other pretty options for wish tree tags. I’ve also seen notes just dropped into a pretty vase so that’s another option. Our friends had a large matted photo of themselves at the wedding and everyone signed the mat.

We had handkerchiefs that we had people sign that we’ll eventually make into a quilt.  We had a small wedding but we loved reading them and I can’t wait to see the quilt when it’s finished.

I had my 250 guests signed on quilt fabric squares so I could sew them into a quilt to use as a throw blanket.

I’ve seen some really cool ideas for a fingerprint tree.  You have a tree drawn on canvas or paper, and then all your guest put their fingerprints as leaves with washable ink, and sign their names under them.  It’s really cute.  I think I’m going to do a twist on it, and have them sign pre-punched flowers and leaves to glue on the canvas.  It’ll be something that you can always have with you to remind yourself of everyone that was there.

We did a wishing tree as well and hung strands of crystals on the manzanita branches. We used cream tags with a snowflake printed on the back with our names, since it was a winter wedding.

We’re doing a quilt.  My Future Mother-In-Law is a super quilter and offered to make us a quilt for a wedding gift.  We’re having guests sign the squares and she’ll sew it into a quilt after the wedding.

We had a signature platter!  It turned out awesome and is hanging in our kitchen.

We haven’t decided just yet but it’s a tossup between:

A) Blank purple journal/notebook with a bamboo spine we found at Barnes & Noble; just have people write in/sign it.

B) “Wishing well/card box” where we supply pens and stationary for our family to write their well wishes on, then place them in the card box.

@futuremrshc:  Hallmark has something similar to this… a box with note cards in it,….guests write the bride and groom a note and place their card in the box…I think it was under 20 bucks

Since we are having a travel-themed wedding. We had personalized post cards made through Zazzle.com. The cards say” Thank you for celebrating our special day with us.” and “Please leave your well wishes for the future Mr. and Mrs.”  Guests will place the postcards in a decorated mailbox.
