You can have a Postcard guestbook where guests sign either the front or book of the postcard with their wishes and make a collage out of it or place them in an album.  Check out my knot bio for some pics of that: http://community.theknot.com/cs/ks/user/page.aspx?username=Jen4637

You can also make photobooks have leave some pages with white space for people to sign, or there’s the ever popular Polaroid album but that will be harder to do since they no longer make the cameras.  I’ve found a ton of ideas from theknot.com

My Fiance and I spent a lot of time talking about this.  To be honest, anything that I can close and stick on a shelf is only going to sit on a shelf.  So began the quest for something artistic and useful. 

I came across a wedding guest quilt online the other day and everything fell into place.  Our colours are black, white, ivory and gold so we’re going to have 5" squares of white fabric and black fabric markers.  The 5" squares will have a frame drawn on them in chalk to show people where they can write (4" square).

After the wedding, and the purchase of a quilting hoop, we will sew the squares along with smaller ivory and gold squares together in a quilt pattern and make a quilt with a black border and backing. 

To be honest, I’ve never made a quilt before and may not be up to the actual quilting, but I know that I will atleast get the top finished which we can then hang as a wall hanging.

My cousin did a coffe table book of local artists from Savannah (where her wedding was located) for her guest book.  People signed whatever page they wanted to and wrote sweet messages.  They couple then displayed the book on their home coffee table and if people pick-it up to look they see all the nice messages left by their guests. 

I love this idea soooo much that I am doing the same.  I picked up a book of pen and ink sketches if Siesta Key, FL done by a local artist.  I will then have ask my guests to write messages on the pages they want.  The book is not a formal glossy hard cover book but a 8×12 paperback book of about 80 pages.   

Another idea a saw put it is on the pricy side – stuben glass has a vase and a platter that can be signed with a special etching pen.  Very cool!http://steuben.com/acb/product2.cfm?section=5&subsection=0&group=33&product=1266

Excuse my horrible grammar, spelling and sentence formation in the above post.  I was busy talking to a co-worker as I wrote the above and did not proof read it.  It’s a slow Friday at work!

I like the idea of creating a picture book on http://www.blurb.com or some other kind of publishing website and just add pictures, but leave some pictures blank for signatures!

I’m doing this: It’s a wish bowl of sorts: it’s a Martha pic I believe

I’m making a shutterfly book for our guestbook. Every other page will be blank, and one other will be photos of us as kids, together and with our families and wedding parties. It’s been really fun. 🙂
