I wasn’t sure where to post this but I thought I would try here! Has anyone seen the stones that people use as guest books? I have heard of people writing well wishes one them or just signing their names. I was just wondering if these have to be polished stones or can they be non-polished? I love the idea and am really wanting to use them!! If anyone has seen these used at a wedding let me know!

I’m sure you could use either polished or unpolished. The majority that I’ve seen have been polished stones, but what you use would probably depend on what you use them for afterwards. I really like the natural river rocks.
Here’s a DIY project by another bee:

I loved this idea the first time I saw it, but sadly I already had a guest book, and so it’s not really in my budget…:( I did win a free photobook today though 🙂
Hmmmm, maybe I will go “borrow” some rocks from my local river and do it anyway….maybe LOL

That’s the easy way to do it in my book. If you have a creek nearby I’m sure you can find lots of nicely sized river rocks that just need a good rinsing. Those rocks will be naturally smooth from the water and ready to use!

One of my best friends did this for her wedding with silver and gold sharpies and it turned out great! She had 3 large hurricanes for guests to put the rocks in after they had been written on, and now displays the rocks in a rectangular box in her hallway. She always gets a smile on her face when she goes by and reads a few.

Thanks everyone! I really love this idea! We live in the country and have creeks really close. I may get them from there to save money and I think it would be nice to collect them oursleves. I plan on putting them in a glass bowl and having them sit in our house. 🙂

Definitely a cute idea! Go for it! I thought about doing something like that, but then I just chose the boring sign the guest book thing. lol

My brother and his wife did this, and it was hreat – everyone liked signing the rocks, and now they have them displayed inside a clear lamp base. Very unique.

This is one great idea! I was actually toying with polished stones with gold engravings of our initials. Hmmmm… which one would work better this or that idea? What do you think?
