We had a photobooth, where the guests added their pictures into a scrapbook with a note. That was our guestbook 🙂

We had 130 guests and we did the photo frame idea…not sure why you think it wouldn’t work. If you have enough space around the photos there should be plenty of are for lengthy messages. Just make sure to already have it in a frame so that people don’t sign in an area where it will be covered.

@MsCarabiner:  We did a photobook, too. Ours had pictures on pages with lots of space, and our guests not only signed but wrote little notes. So much fun to page through later and read their notes to us.

Shutterfly now has a guest book feature for their photo books. I just made one with our engagement photos and it turned out great. Plus, if you sign up for their emails you can get 50% and 40% off coupon codes all the time.

@echolove:  We did something similiar!

I too see no reason to have a traditional guestbook(when would you read it?) or the hanging signatures/artwork(just not my style).  The week before the wedding we decided on postcards and had a simple on printed up with a Chicago skyline on the front and Dear Mr. and Mrs. so and so on the back with our address pre-printed on them.  We set them out at all the tables with pens and had bought a mailbox to set out on the escort table for the postcards to be placed in.  After the reception my sister put stamps on them and mailed them to us.  When we got back from our honeymoon we had a mailbox full of well wishes from our friends and family that we went through together!  It was so sweet to read everyone’s notes and nice to hear feedback about the reception WHILE they were still there. Plus some of the guests were pretty tipsy and what they wrote was pure comedy!  I would highly suggest this idea.  We keep them in a box with our wedding cards.

Total cost – postcards(100 of them for 175 guests)$30+mailbox $15.00+stamps $15= $60

I have no idea, ever. I’d love to do a photobooth guest book, but I don’t see us affording that. I am now thinking of maybe a wooden puzzle or ceramic bowl…I don’t know.

@Soxgirl3:  I loved our guest platter!  I think our guests thought it was unique too.  It’s hanging in our kitchen now.

@baletrina:  I love that! I was thinking if I should put the post cards on the table for each guest, but I’m worried about them getting wet, dirty, ruined, by food, drinks or whatever. But I don’t want people to pass them up if I have a seperate table. I’m thinking of just making a cute sign saying, “Take one and don’t forget to pin me on the board.” And on the cork board saying, “Pin me!”

I was wanting to do a bench for people to sign, but my fiancé loves music so I think what we are going to do is buy a cheap guitar for everyone to sign that we can hang in our office/ music room.

We had a photo booth that printed out two strips for each session and we had guests glue one of them into our book and write a message beside it. Guests who did sessions together usually wrote their messages on the same page.

If it fits into your budget, I’d definitely recommend the way we did our guestbook. It was a huge hit!
