We are planning to have our guests sign a bench we’ve made rather than a guestbook at the wedding. I want to make a sign so guests realize they should sign rather than take a seat but I’m having a creative block. Any poems or sweet sayings would be greatly appreciaited!

“Don’t be a wench, sign our bench!”
“Love is neat, sign this seat”
“Hello guest, please sign, don’t rest”
yeah. This is hard. Maybe just “Please sign our bench!”.

Just beware that every time I see something, that people can sign like that, someone always tries to be a commedian. Like signing their name like JOHN HANCOCK, or they write something about the wedding night. My daughter’s friend did something with a big initial of their last name. She ended up having to throw it out. Guests who sign it after a few hours of open bar – UGH!

lknatbrghtsde: Me too!
missdtomrsz: I love this idea, how cool. Now wishing we’d thought of something like that. Where’s the seat going to be in your home?

Wow, thank you for all of the responses!
liaeona: I actually think the “love is neat” saying is really cute!
2XMOB: This is super helpful! I think I’ll remove the bench after a few hours.
pinkksnow: I LOVE this! It is so simple but perfect
CatyLady: Thanks! I’m planning to wood burn our initials into it and once we have all of the signatures we are going to put it at the end of the bed.

2XMOB: YES! I was at a wedding once where they had a big adirondack chair for guests to sign. One of the younger guests (a cousin I think) thought it would be really funny to draw a penis right in the middle of the seat! Like a big one. Yeah…they ended up painting the whole chair, thereby erasing everyone’s signatures, in order to cover it.

llevinso: Yep. Some wedding guests aren’t capable of signing anything more than a guest book, that you can keep closed, and hide in a drawer. Someone went a little berserk, on a fingerprint tree, at one wedding I attended; they left fingerprints all over the background.

llevinso: That is so sad! I definitely have a few guys that I have to be careful about….they are “grown men” though

missdtomrsz: Yeah it was really unfortunate 🙁

So the more I think about it, “Love is SWEET, sign our seat” makes so much more sense.
