It’s amazing.

1.) no lines just let them sign how ever they want.

2.) maybe words of wisdom from guests?

3.) cover looks great

4.) I would put your wedding info there for sure

I’m so glad you posted this, I’ve been looking at mixbook for our book too. Yours looks great!

What size are you going with?

What about instead of no lines, the grid design? (I saw it on one of the sample books) – that might give people room but not the whole page, you know what I mean?

Also, are you sure the pen you plan to use for the black pages is good for glossy paper?

1. No lines or boxes, unless you want it neater.  Personally, I like the free willed yearbook style signing.

2. I think its self explaintory and doesnt need to be titled, but I had to pick one – “words of wisdom”

3.  I think the cover is fine.  If you want to put something, I’d say something like “Wedding Guestbook” & the date and turn the font 90 deg.

4. Wedding info instead of a poem

I think the book looks wonderful!

1)No lines – I would let the guests have the freedom to fill it in as they please.  It’s fun to see their creativity!

A suggestion – Have someone (maybe a groomsmen) near the book to flip the pages.  I can see people filling in EVERY little space on one page because they aren’t sure if they can write on the other pages….

2) If the book were mine, I would have all the black pages blank, and have a little sign next to the book that reads something like “Leave a message to the Bride and Groom…”  or maybe even a little saying or poem with directions.

3) Leave the cover alone!

4) Again – I would leave the ‘poem’ page blank.  I know when I have written in wedding books, there is a long line of people waiting, and I’ve never seen anyone flip through the book.  UNLESS you want something there for you when you look back through it.

1.) Should we have lines for the guests to write on?

I like the line idea; it keeps things nice and organized. But not having lines lead more to more fun and sponatneous messages and drawings.

2.) What should the title on the top of the page say? ‘Words of wisdom’? ‘Guests’?

I’d prefer it blank… but probably “Well Wishes” or “Words of Wisdom”

3.) Should something be written on the cover??

Cover’s great as is.

4.) If you noticed the ‘Poem Here?’… we have no idea what to put in that spot! Should we just put our wedding info? like date..location..etc or something else? Like a welcome to the guests?

I wouldn’t suggest a poem and even with the guestbook, most weddings I’ve attended there’s a long line to get through to get everyone signed in. Unless its a close friend getting married, I usually feel rushed through and sign my name and “best wishes” or “congratulations.” I made our RSVP cards with a large space for people write in well wishes or a drawing and ended up collecting them and turning them into a scrapbook.

I like the changes!

A few questions for you – Are there enough squares for each guest to sign??

Also, the pages say memories – do you want your guests to write in a memory of you two??  That would confuse me a bit….

Maybe on your ‘poem’ page, you could include part of your vows?  or maybe some words that (who ever is marrying you) will say??  Just an idea….
