We are making a guest book quilt. Each guest gets a piece of fabric and writes there name on it with a fabric pen. Afterwards we assemble it and quilt it. My officiant said he used a sand ceremony and then afterwards guests signed stones and put it into the vase.

The only problem with sticking stickers on a vase is that they will start peeling off…

I am also doing a non-traditional guest book. I will have a basket of flat, river rocks for guests to sign with a silver sharpie, then they will place it into a glass vase. That way, we can display it on a shelf in our home 🙂 

Could you think of something that your guests could sign and place into a vase?

In this old post, there is an example of an alternative guestbook where people sign shapes of paper which are then pinned to a blank artist’s canvas (or you could use a piece of foamcore). You could use bird shapes.

We are doing this. Our Nephew is custom designing our wedding tree poster (to be framed) that guests will put their fingerprints on instead of a guest book that will never be seen again.

@deefirecracker:  I did this about 10 years ago for my grandfathers 80th birthday it was a blast. Its really cute to look at the kids prints and see how much theyve grown too.

If I were going to do the vase idea,  I would use glass etching cream to make a bird design on the vase, then have the guests sign directly on the vase with a pen that writes on glass.

@deefirecracker:  I love this idea! I think if you were getting married in the fall it would be fun to have orange and yellow thunbprints too.

We are doing a funny guestbook where it asks the guests different questions and they draw pictures.

I am doing a clothes pin guestbook with cute little marriage advice papers 🙂 Along with a birdcage as my card box (I am using the bird cage and papers in this pic)

we are setting up a polaroid camera for each guest to take a picture of themselves, then we are going to pin it up on a string strung across the far side of the patio.   Then obviously, we are gonna put those photos in our own album
