I’ll be checking back to see what people say because I have been wondering this myself. 🙂

Do both?  I think it’s acceptable if you wanted to do that.  I would put them in a scrapbook as well.  But it would take me awhile to get around to it.  A book will keep it all together, without work.  

We’re doing a photo mat guestbook so I can hang it somewhere in our house!

I had a friedn that did a wish bowl, and the wish cards were 4×6 size, and they just put them into a photo album, sort of a make your own guestbook!!

I’ve been thinking the same thing! I think I’m going to do both, but I’m concerned too that I won’t get around to doing it. I’m hoping that since I’m moving when we get married, and won’t have a job right away (yay for trying to find retail jobs in a bad economy!), maybe I’ll just be bored and want to do it? I do like the photo album idea. Let us know if you have any great ideas! ^_^

I’m pretty sure I went to a wedding, where the guests were asked to write messages on scraps of fabric, which were then sewn together to make a blanket? quilt?  I guess a relative of the bride could sew.

For what it’s worth, my two cents would be to pick book or bowl.  If you have both, you’ll have some wishes in a book, and others you’ll have to piece together yourself.  Or you’ll get two messages from the same guest, and they might grumble thinking they’ll have to spend so much time writing.  Just my thoughts.

this is something that i have been contemplating as well. i lean more toward the wish bowl because then you can put them in any kind of album you want. for the people that are having both, i have one concern. if i were a guest at a wedding with both, i think i would tend to only sign one of the items. i would just hate for you to have a half empty guestbook or only a small amount of cards from the wish bowl.
