I have some ideas and thought for you!

Since you don’t plan on putting everything together until after the wedding you could just have the leaves out on a seperate table and set a cute bowl or something out for signed ones to go that way everyone will be suprised when they see your guestbook tree proudly displayed at home. Trying to create a mock display at the wedding seems like extra work for you.

Something to consider– depending on how many guests you have this may turn out to be more of a redwood. Also, take into consideration the size of the leaves..are your guests going to be writing their names with a message? If they write a message too long for the front, they may print on the back as well and you won’t be able to display the whole message on the tree.

The biggest issue is, as you pointed out, the size of the leaves. If you are going to matte and frame them all later, it could be end up being a huge print depending upon the size of the leaves you use. Additionally, you will only want people to write on one side so that no information is lost when they are matted and framed.

You can pre-attach string to each leave so this is easy for guests. OR, you could use something nifty like one of these umbra photo trees:
