I love the idea of making a quilt- everyone decorates a fabric square and after the wedding, you sew it together to make a quilt… I got vetoed on ALL sides on that idea. Cry

We’re buying a coffee table book full of black and white pictures of NYC.  Guests will sign the pages using gold and silver metallic pens.

We’re making a book full of pictures of us/family/friends (kind of a story of us) that will have blank spaces for our guests to sign.

I’m planning on doing something like this, but I’ll probably print up the top of some of the cards with the beginning of sentences. So like, one pile of cards will be blank, one pile might say “Love is . . . ” and another pile might say “We wish . . . ” I thought this was nice because guests won’t all be hovering over one book and they don’t have to worry about other people reading the message. It also looks pretty 🙂 Then you can glue them into a regular scrapbook later.

I really liked the small envelopes attached to the guestbook pages too, but then my fiance pointed out that you can’t just flip through the book to read the messages, but actually have to take each one out individually.

I used something similar to this.  I plan on using the notes in the wedding scrapbook I am making next to a picture of the person who wrote it.

im doing the guestbook with the little envelopes

i actually found a martha stewart one at ac moore with the envelopes already in it (which made me extraordinarily happy, and alarmed the sales girl heh)

but, instead of using the little white sheets that come with it, im going to cut up the same size paper in different colors, just to add a little “something” to it

We are doing a Quaker wedding certificate – it has details about the wedding and then each quest signs it. It will be framed and hanging in our house forever:-)

After looking at several artists, I chose Danae because I love her calligraphy the very most!

We are using a story book collection from Disney that’s about 300 pages (we are getting married at Disney World) and having our friends/family leave notes for us in the margins of the pages.  That way we can use the book again when we have kids and constantly be reminded of our wedding day 🙂

But I’ve also heard of people doing a similar idea with a travel book or whatever kind of book that fits their wedding vibe and having their guests sign the margins of that.

We are doing a New Orleans cookbook (where I am from and where the wedding is) and telling people to sign by their favorite recipe.

We are having a large canvas with a picture of us in the centre and we are asking our guests to sign their messages on the canvas around our picture.  We can then hang the canvas in our home and will always be able to look at our friends and families messages.

See example below.
