I’m sure this has been asked a million times, but I’m looking for good alternatives to the traditional guest book. I don’t really love the photo matte idea, I’m too OCD to like how messy that looks. (It’s a totally cute idea, just stresses me out somehow >_<) I was thinking providing notecards and a box to drop them in, so people could actually write a little note or advice or something, instead of just a signature and "congratulations!" Any other good ideas? And if I do the box, I’ll have someone standing there, but what about a little sign explaining too? What verbiage would you use on something like that? Thanks for any ideas!

For my daughters wedding we are having a tree branch draped with crystals in an urn on the table. Also on the table will be short rows of cardstock squares with ribbon strung through. The guests will write either a message to the couple or a memory they have of either the bride or the groom on these squares and will put their addresses on the backs of these notes. A small easel will hold a note instructing the guests on what to do.
We have yet to come up with a cute ditty for the note but will post it when we do. We are going to do the same for our vow renewal in 3 years.
We feel that this approach will be more meaningful than a guest just signing his or her name in a book that will sit unused on a shelf.

We’re having a wish bowl on each table and little sheets nicely-cut pieces of paper and instructions for guests to write their well wishes and/or advice and/or general note, whatever to us. We’ll use the style of Mrs. Tiramisu and then take all of them and put them into a nice photo album or scrapbook. Good luck!
