keep in mind not all guests get around to signing the guest book.  I think ones that force signatures or long thoughtful words are too pushy – one page per person.  A lot of people don’t know both the bride and groom/drink too much, don’t like writing, have too many things in their hands etc etc. 

that being said.  you could have people sign something important to you – skies, football, oar, plate, pillow, apron, collegiate symbol.  what about an audio guest book or incorporate it with a wishing tree or photobooth.

I saw your post from February 2010.
I just thought I would let you (and any other Brides out there who may be wondering…) know that UncommonGoods.com no longer sells the Wishing Wall. Apparently they ran out of stock.  However, you can get  very similar one in many different styles on Etsy now!
I just bought mine from her this week and I am super excited!

This is a wonderful idea where guest actually stamp their fingerprint and sign to make a lovely tree to fram and hang in the newlyweds home!

We are planning on using a sports jersey as our guestbook.  Using our last name and the date of the wedding as the jersey number.   We didn’t want a guestbook that is going to be packed away.  So I thought why not use a jersey that we can display in a jersey frame with other wedding memorbila.

I’m not really sure what you’d do with this afterward, but I thought it was an interesting idea…

We’re using our photo-booth for our guestbook. My Future Father-In-Law will be making us a few life size chalk board thought bubbles and our guests will write their “guestbook” entries on those. After our wedding, we’ll either make a collage of the pictures for our home or incorporate them into our photo-book. I’ve yet to attend a wedding where the B&G have done anything other than a traditional guest book. Do they seriously think they’ll ever look at that again?!

What we are doing for our guestbook is similiar to the photobooth idea.

We are having a sccrapbook and as guests arrrive, the guestbook attendants will take their picture.  We have black filler pages and silver pens for guest to leave a note for us.  (each picture gets a page or half a page… I haven’t deiced how to split it yet)  Then after the wedding I will print the pics and put them in the scrapbook where the guest’s note is.  I think it will be a lot more fun to look back on than a traditional guestbook.

We used some things already mentioned…  as we had 3 guestbooks.

1. Thumbprint Tree – Only thumbprints, no signatures.

2. Wood Slice Signatures – Had guests sign in on a slice of wood, that will hang on our wall, eventually!

3. Well Wishing Cards – We had at each guest’s place setting a postcard and colored pencils and asked guests to write us a message or draw us a picture…  These were wonderful to look after the fact – Very creative family and friends!

(Tree before thumbprints below.  Husband drew both tree and the little heart on the woodslice.)

I’d planned to do something like this:

But, I won a really nice guestbook at a bridal show…so I’m just sticking to it.

We chose to have a guest platter made with our initials and our wedding date.  Here are a couple of pics. I just hung it on the wall in the kitchen.  I love it! 

P.S. Sorry the pics are HUGE!

Bringing this post back to life!

we’re doing the one sided photo book from walmart ($12.00 Canadian) and leaving the opposite side blank for our guests to sign!
The photos will be of our engagement session and quotes from our Tim Burton theme 🙂
Great price and personalized!
