I recently saw some Polaroid guest books at Michael’s Crafts that looked cool. The guests take a pic with the Polaroid, slip it into the slot of the page then write a greeting on their page. Chances are someone you know has a Polaroid camera, and guests will have a ball taking their pictures!

You could paste little envelopes into a scrapbook and have people write their names on the outside of the envelope and then have an insert of some sort where they can write advice and then put it in the envelope. Very easy to do, not creatively challenging and you get some good stuff out of it!

We’re going to do a large mat with a photo of us in it, so people can sign it and we can frame it.

We ordered really nice cardstock, and printed one side (in our colors).  Then we asked the guests to write a wish or some memories or advice on the other.  We really got some great stuff – we used a pretty good sized card (about 3 x 5).  Sort of like a wish tree, although my mom thought the tree was some kind of crazy-Boulder-hippie idea (!!) so we used a nice basket.  It took about an hour to print up the cards, and a nice sign letting people know what to do with them, and I bought a ton of nice pens at Office Depot (most of which walked, go figure).  Our florist did up the basket for me.

You could print one side of the cards with your names and the date, or your monogram.  We used words – we came up with a list of words that sort of define our relationship and what we hope for our marriage (which we also had incorporated in the decoration of the cake).  It was really interesting to see which words people picked – and they did pick through the cards to find what they wanted in a lot of cases – and how they used the words as their inspiration or the theme for what they wrote.

What about buying a coffee table book (or large art book) and having people sign with permanent marker?  (This idea may require a sign to explain what you want people to do).

Could also try a pretty scrapbook … just thinking outside the box.

We did what KEM suggested, a coffee table book.  We bought one with gorgeous floral photography and lots of blank white space, and I bought a pack of thin black sharpies for guests to use.  So low maintenance! 

If you go this route, though, I definitely recommend a sign with specific directions like KEM said.  I was hoping for people to write notes, and they just all signed their names on the first few pages.  Still, a wonderful record of the day!

Congrats and enjoy your wedding!!
