My fiance are toying with idea of doing a madlibs guest book.  Each guest will get their own and fill it out and sign their name on the bottom.  I know most of my guests will enjoy it and will like to have something to fill the time.  We are also thinking about a guestbook plate, my friend had one and uses it all the time, but you might need a couple if you have a lot of people coming.

We have two — one goes with our photobooth; the company provides a scrapbook so guests can put in a copy of their photostrip and write something next to it.  I also want to get a sketchbook with blank pages and put a sign next to it that says “draw a picture of your favorite animal and sign your masterpiece” (animal because our venue is a zoo).  I’m in the process of looking for the perfect sketchbook right now!!

Friends of ours also put an engagement picture in the middle of a large posterboard and had their guests sign around it, which I think is a great idea too!  It’s hanging up in their house now!

We will also be having a photobooth and I want to have a book of copies of the pictures for guests to sign. A friend of ours did this and I thought it was awesome.

We are doing bride and groom signing bears. We wanted something we could sit in our cabinet but also be able to see what everyone wrote all the time.

We actually did a fingerprint tree. Darling Husband painted it himself so it’s not the most professional looking one but means more to us. Our guests went crazy with it!

We had guests sign a blown up canvas of our engagement picture. It was a hit and looks great hanging in our house.

This is not mine, but it’s like this…

We did wedding mad libs. Not everyone fills them out and a lot of people put silly names down instead of their own. So unless you really want a keepsake of every single person that came to the wedding, it’s a fun idea. We enjoyed reading them.

We’re having a more vintage wedding so I found an old polaroid camera and a place I can buy film for it (impossible film if anyone has a polaroid that they need film for). We’re going to have people take a picture of themselves that they then can put into the guestbook and write any kind of messages to us around it. It’s still kind of a guestbook but a little more personal for us.

We did a tree and photobooks. I saw a really cool post here the other day about someone who was having people sign a big mirror and another cool thing where people signed a globe

we’re doing a quilt guest book. Future Mother-In-Law and Aunt in law both are avid quilters so we thought we would have squares and fabric pens for guests to write on and we will have the ladies quilt it. and it will be with us forever. Our other choice was the bench with people signing it, but we fiigured we don’t want to have to move with it and our current place really has no where for it

We put cards at every seat, and had small containers of pens/colored pencils/crayons. I’ll eventually bind these into a book, along with the cards we received.

My dad cut out our name in wood and painted it gold. Guests signed it with sharpies. We have it hanging in our entry way now.
