We had a gold “wishing tree”- golden branches that guests hung tags on with marriage advice and well wishes. We get the tree out at Christmas and hang mini ornaments on it.

We had a ‘message in a bottle’ guest book for our wedding… just a cute vintage bottle, and it matches our living room, so it’s on one of the shelves. I wasn’t sure people would go for it, but it’s ended up stuffed full of scraps of paper. We’re planning on opening and reading the messages on our first wedding anniversary!

DH and I love to travel, so we did a map —

He is from California and I’m from Florida – we had the states overlaid in our wedding colors (California was grey, Florida was lavender) and then it had our names and date at the bottom.

The rest of the canvas was white/blank space for signatures all around. We’ll get it framed eventually.

ukbea :  we did the same thing! We watered a tree for our unity ceremony, and then had guests write messages on little cardstock tags and hang them on the tree. We put them in a little drawer and pulled them out to read again on our first wedding anniversary.

A friend made our guestbook! She bought a puzzle for us and put the pieces in a beautiful bowl. Guests signed their name on the back of a puzzle piece!!

We did a photoframe and had a large matte board for people to sign with a pic from our engagement shoot in it. I think only a couple guests didn’t sign it. It is something I saw that an aquaintance had hanging in their home and I knew I wanted to do that for my wedding one day so it was something that could be displayed or used and not gathering dust somewhere. I replaced the engagement pic with a pic from our wedding.

We did a guest canvas with our names and wedding date. It’s hanging in our living room now. Bought it off Etsy.
