I’m having an album for our guest book with a single picture of my FH and I on each page with plenty of extra space for my guests to write messages next to the pictures. I’m afraid that some people will just look at it and not write anything or not realize they are supposed to write something. I want to make a really cute sign that asks guests to write something or give us some advise, but I’m not sure how I should word it, or what exactly I should say. Any suggestions?

I don’t have any suggestions for sign wording, but my guy and I did a similar thing and we simply had some of the wedding party sign in to get it going and then asked my younger sister to get signatures. The pen was also a dead giveaway, but if they don’t see that, they can notice the signatures you already put in.

I second Angel’s suggestions. If you want to do a sign, perhaps you can set one up in the same font as all your other wedding stationery. Is your event more casual or formal?
I’m also wanting to put up a little sign on a tent placard or something and I’m trying to figure out wording..
I’m at a loss right now so I’m of no help. 🙁

What if you put blank cards/stationery in, scrapbook-style, so it’s clear there should be writing on them? I agree that you could get bridal party/parents to start the signing, too, but maybe the cards would make it even more obvious.

GorgesViola – I’ve already made the book so I can’t really add cards too it I just want people to write directly in it.
Angel- I think I will bring it to the rehersal dinner so the people there can sign it ahead of time.
I just want it say something like give us some advise, tell us your marriage secrets, or just leave some love. I just want it to be fun but is what I just wrote too simple and short?

On a similar thread, someone else suggested:
"Advice and wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs."
I’ve saved it into my inspiration file for when we get to the guest book portion of our DIY project list. 🙂 Not sure we’ll go with it, but it’s the current frontrunner.
For something a little less cutesy, you could try:
