do you have a picture of the chest? Is there a purpose for this later? Would it be right to call it a hope chest perhaps?

The easiest thing to do is get your wedding party to start it off – as soon as people see it they will know what to do and follow suit!

Just make sure that lots of pens/markers are available!

I’d put a cute little note in the frame next to it saying something like…

“In lieu of a guest book, we ask that you sign this (the lid to our ‘Hope Chest’) so that we may incorporate your love and kind words into our lives” (ok, so I am certainly not a wordsmith plus I have a head cold, but something explain what it is and why they are signing it would be good). 🙂

Cute idea by the way 🙂

How about: “Please take the time to write a note or sign your name on the lid of our hope chest so that we might be reminded of your presence on this special day.”

Oh my goodness I LOVE that idea!

I don’t have any advice on the wording for a sign, but I just wanted to let you know I think the idea is absolutely amazing!

You may also want to specify the inside lid as where you would like people to sign… so people don’t think they can write all over it (I was getting the impression that you only wanted the inside signed, but if I’m wrong just disregard)

What a great idea!  I think a cute sign that explain things works great.  And if you have the bridal party start things off, people will get the idea.

I think that’s a great idea!  I think a simple sign would suffice.

It might also help to have someone nearby to help point people in the right direction (just until people figure it out). I went to a wedding where they did something similar (except they had everyone sign a picture frame), and if there hadn’t been someone pointing out “go there and sign the frame”, then a lot of people would’ve missed it.  It’s surprising how many people can fail to read even the most obvious of signs..:P 

But yeah, way cute idea! It’ll make for an awesome keepsake!
