We’re doing something like this. Stamp pad with fingerprints to branches. I thought it was cute and less useless than a giant book you’ll probably never look at again.

We’re doing the coffee table photo book with our E-pics and guests will sign on the blank space on the pages.

One of  my girlfriends had a small wedding (less than 50) and asked her younger sister to take photos of each guest or couple. She found a photo album on Etsy and each guest or couple signed their own page and the bride is going to develop the film and put the pics of the guests with their signed page.  

 

We are going to blow up one of our epics (BIG) and have guests sign the matte around it!

I would be more interested in this platter because we’d get a lot of use out of it in our house!

You could do a photo of the two of you and have a large mat around it, and have people sign the mat.  It depends on if you want it to be something you display or something you keep around and take out everyone once in awhile to look at.

But- I would say that if your fiance isn’t going to contribute toward the creativity, you can just get whatever you want.

We’re doing the signature photo frame idea. Guestbooks don’t make much sense to me either. I just don’t see myself going through my guestbook years from now and reading names. The picture frame just seemed like a better use of our money and we can actually display it around the house. 🙂

@adw2c: I just shot her an email, so I will let you know.  

She actually used the plat too, at the Bridal Shower.

I hate traditional guest books. You’ll look at it once and it will be thrown in a box never to be seen again.

We’re having a photobooth so we’re planning on having a picture guest book of sorts. My Future Father-In-Law is making us a few life size thought bubbles that we will cover in chalk board paint. Our guests will write their guest book entries (like a short note to us and sign their names) on the boards and take a picture in our photobooth. After the wedding we are going to make a collage of the guestbook pictures and hang it in our home. We’ll be able to see it everyday and it will always remind us of who shared in our special day.

So I’m failing to find a picture of it, but Martha Stewart Weddings featured a guest book where it’s actually several smaller books that can be left at each table, and they all ask a different question, basically asking for advice for the new couple.

Once they were filled out and the wedding was over, they slipped into a cute box thing that held them all together. It was really cute :).

Fiance and I are having our engagement pictures put into a book and then we’ll have guests sign it.
