We’re thinking about getting a photo of us with a large frame for our guests to sign the border rather than a guest book, as we’re only having a small wedding and are short on time to sort this one out.
Have any bees done this? Any good examples or positive feedback?

We did it and it was a hit!
I got my mat from here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67066982/signature-picture-frame-customized-mat
I haven’t gotten my pro pics back, other than the link to all 400 of them, so I can’t show you how it looked at the reception and after without posting all of our pics.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
Friends did this at theirs, whith a pen and ink drawing of their venue instead of a photo. It was lovely, and now hangs above the fireplace in their home. We are doing this with one of our engagement photos, and are having our calligrapher collaborate with our photographer to have our vows written on the photo. The calligrapher will do the writing, and then we’ll have a digital image made of that writing, which will then be transposed onto the background of the photo. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

I good friend of my family did this and it is awesome! They’ve been married for about 10 yrs and it’s still displayed in their home. I think this is a great alternative to a guest book that might sit on a coffee table or bookshelf

Sounds cool. We did a thumbprint tree because we also saw little to no use in a book just sitting on the corner of our coffee table. Go for it! 😀

Many of our friends had done the signed e-pic in our circle (like all!), so we put a small spin on it. I commissioned a local artist to do a charcoal sketch of our wedding venue (a southern plantation) and had guests sign the frame. Now its in our formal room and so glad made this choice.
