I am having some problems with Guestbooks! I am creating a board for “Advice and Wishes” for the new Bride and Groom, but I want a traditional guestbook as well. I feel that, while the board is definitely something I will keep, a more traditional guestbook is not only certain to be signed by all attendees but will also be accessible in our home.
What do you think? I am asking too much of our guests?
Also, if anyone has any DIY advice on guestbooks… I’m listening (reading, rather :)) and could really use it. I haven’t found a single book that I love, so, like everything else in my wedding, I’ve decided to do it myself! 🙂

oo Im throwing this idea up in the air too. We want to have a mazanita tree – were people write your well wishes. and we wanted to have a guest book also.. However we just thought a guest book was a little too much to have them both together.
My dad actually came up with the idea, of bring the formal guest book to the ceremony, and people can sign there.. and for guests that show up at the reception, to have them sitting next to the escort cards as such and that way we will get both! and its not overkill as some guests are likely not to write in the original guest book.
In the way of going about DIY, Fabric guest books look fantastic. it would just be finding a plain guest book and covering it and jazz it up 🙂
Good luck and looking forward to your pics of your project!

For my first wedding we had both a guest book and cards for people to fill out. You’re right, everyone will fill out the book, but not everyone will fill out the cards. We just had a basic book for the guest book – I don’t even know where it ended up…I still have the cards though
