    I think if you want to do both things, you can definitely do that.  I do think it’s smart to include some sort of card with instructions, so that people know what your intentions are.  I like the idea of giving separate instructions for each thing–so that you don’t get the same message in two different places.  If you think people are going to have trouble figuring it out, you can have some sort of guest book attendant or a DOC monitoring and helping out.

    I think it’s fine to do both.  Love the idea for the guest book – think the wording for that is fine.

    For the tree, however, I don’t like the use of “letting us know what love is” – makes it seem like you don’t know what love is 😉 (even though I get what you are going for).  I’d put instructions like:  “Love Is  ________ (fill in the blank)”.  If you want to capitalize on the ‘tree’ aspect, you could preface that by saying something like “Help us continue to grow our love with the following words of advice”…. or, “Help our love continue to grow and bloom with your words of wisdom”….

    Hope that helps.

    We’re doing something similar. We have our guest book and are having a recipe boxes with a sign and cute poem that Mr. EMG wrote up that asks for everyone to leave us a “recipe for love.” He loves to cook and we thought it would be a cute idea and we could read a couple after dinner once a week.
