Ok, so i am having an autograph mat for our wedding picture and a guest book for everyone to sign. I have a cute little picture frame that i can print something out that asks everyone to sign them both, what was is a cute way to ask people to write a little note on our autograph mat, instead of just signing their names?

Honestly, you don’t need both. If you want people to sign the photo matte, that works as a guestbook. The other will get tossed in a closet for years and no one ever signs the rest of the 50 pages. The last wedding I went to had both and guests said that it was overkill and they didn’t see the point in signing both.
A sign is not necessary. Have your parents and attendants sign it at the rehearsal to get the ball rolling. When guests see the setup, they will be able to figure it out.

I’m not really that creative, so I’d do something like:
(or whatever :D)
But I agree with Selene–you probably do not need both.

I wouldn’t have both. We had a picture mat for our guestbook and most people wrote notes on it. The mat was 11 x 17 with a cut out for a 8 x 10 picture but we only had about 30 people attend the wedding so there was more than enough space.

I agree – do one or the other. We went with the signed photo frame. That way you can look at it instead of putting in on a book shelf. No real need to even put a sing – have a few people sign it before you put it out and people will get the idea!
make sure to put it in a high transport zone and maybe have the DJ announce a reminder to sign it!

Also, speaking from experience as a guestbook attendant when I was a kid, no matter what you do or how outgoing you may be, if someone doesn’t want to sign, they won’t and you can’t force them without offending them.

We had a photo guestbook and people signed that and I think something else would have been too much. A lot of people signed our guestbook (definitely not everyone) and most of them also wrote cute notes or words of advice. People know what to do with a guestbook! ANd you cant force people to write something if all they want to do is sign their name

i like the idea of adding a little signage – it makes things a little more personal. Here is what I’m putting out by our guest book….
