I’m going to make a scrapbook with the engagement pictures so that people can see them and sign the book at the same time.

 

I like the Nautical theme though!  But will you have room to do that and find someone to help with the photos and track what everyone is wearing.  B/c that can get easliy messed up.  What if the one photo they took was blurry too.  Make sure they take at least two photos so your guarenteed a hopefully clear photo.

Two ideas from some recent weddings I saw of friends on facebook:

Wishing tree – Pictures attached

or

Chalk Board Pictures – Pictures attached.

 

I think we are going with the wishing tree!! 🙂

I really like the guest book tree idea (I want to do it for our rehearsal since the rehearsal group is a better size for it)

I also really like the idea of creating prompts for the guests like “what’s your best piece of marriage advice?” or “what’s your favorite memory of the bride and groom?”  Hopefully those prompts will result in better results than just a list of signatures!

I think both of your ideas are good. Just not sure Polaroid cameras are still available. We looked for them before our wedding as had a similar idea as you for our guest book, and were told Polaroid is no longer made.

I made a scrapbook with pictures through out our dating years, and engagement pictures, and left some pages with blank spaces so guests could sign.

My sister had guests sign wine bottles. They had 4 and plan to open them on their anniversary for the next 4 years.
