I think lots of people do this kind of stuff.. Just the other day I saw a guestbook a couple had designed that has a different question on each page. I love the idea and think it would make a good keepsake for sure. I was considering this kind of thing too, but I’m worried that lots of people would rather just sign their name and be done with it. I didn’t want the idea to flop, so we are just having people sign a guitar, and then we’ll hang it in a corner of a room or something.

We did this type of thing, but had stacks of cards available at the cocktail hour.  Not many people did it.  Oh well.  It might work better if the cards are at the table so people have the time.  Or make sure you have someone telling people to do this.

I think the idea is good, but that people may or may not do it. While the simple guestbook is a bit like, oh, what am I going to do with that, simply signing your name is a lot easier than answering a question or writing something cute. A lot less work = more people do it.

I like the idea of having people sign something you can put up in your home, either a picture or some object that has meaning to you.

Personally I’d fill out one of those cards but I doubt a lot of people would… My Future Sister-In-Law had a calendar made and asked her guests to sign their name on their birthday to insure no one would be forgotten.. Ironically she ended up forgetting her own brother’s birthday even after this but it was still a good idea..

Hm. I think it depends on the crowd, wither it will be a conversation starter, or it won’t. Maybe that can be an addition to some other form of guest book? What about a wishing tree, where everyone hangs notes on it? If it was some big and beautiful thing, maybe people would be drawn to it?
