  • Wedding: March 2016 - Enoch Turner Schoolhouse

I’m going to do a polaroid guestbook.  I will assign one Bridesmaid or Best Man to handle taking the pictures for guests, and having them sign the picture with a message for the bride and groom.

I will then collect the pictures and make a scrapbook out of it 🙂

Do a shutterfly book of pictures of you and your Fiance through your relationship and then have them sign around the pages.

mary90:  We did a photo guestbook where we set up a DSLR camera on a tripod with a remote trigger, and a small photo printer.  I pre-stuck photo corners in a scrapbook, so all the guests had to do was insert their photo and sign or write a message with it.  

Some of our friends took really funny candids so it’s almost like a 2nd wedding album for us!

We made a photobook from some of our engagement photos on Shutterfly, and then guests signed around the photos.

We didn’t do official pictures, but had a relative just take enough for a book to be made – so if you didn’t want to use pics like that, you could create a photobook with pics of the two of you during your relationship.

I’m going to totally jack Miss Tractor’s idea and use MyPublisher to make a photo guest book out of our engagement photos. I have always loved the photo guest book idea, because it turns it into something I’m more likely to pull out and look at than a traditional book.

  • Wedding: November 2014 - 11/15/14-Vineyard

We hired a photobooth and put a sign next to the seating chart that asked all the guests take pics as our guest book. They did multiple pics that made a collage and they put one copy in the scrapbook that they signed best wishes/misc and then they got one copy to keep. I bought acrylic frames for them to put them in as one of the favors as well. Killed 2 birds with 1 stone and everyone had a blast in the photobooth!

I think my fiancé and I are leaning towards a DIY answer book. A book with a few pictures of us and then pages that have a question at the top for them to answer and sign their names. They can do as many or few as they want.

Questions like, what should we name our first child? Any marriage advice? Are we “opposites attract” or “birds of a similar feather flock together?” Love is never having to…? Etc.

If you want something that people can simply sign their name, you could do pebbles, leaves etc anything to go with your wedding, then just keep them in a box or bowl. You can take them out in years to come, look at the signatures and reminisce.

Lots of ideas on the usual site

I was at a loss for guestbooks as well. Since we are both Christian we will be having people highlight their favourite Bible verse and sign their name. If they choose not to , or can’t think of a verse we may have a mini madlib they can put in a big vase for us to read later!

mary90:  Are you looking for something as a memorabilia or the traditional way of using it to keep track of who attended your ceremony?

mary90:  I’m on mobile so I can’t post any pictures, but I’ll most likely use Shutterfly I think. If they allow me to customize the pages the way I want. I haven’t used them before. But questions would be printed at the top of the page.

I got the idea here from number 16, but while they are just notecards, I want to make ours a full book. http://www.buzzfeed.com/peggy/impossibly-fun-wedding-ideas?sub=2940136_2350295#2350295

mary90:

Another alternative would be to have the photographer take a group shot from above. Done.

If you don’t want a record of the guests at your wedding, don’t have one.
