We will have a photobooth at our wedding and want to use this as part of our guestbook. We have a guestbook with blank pages at the moment (we can take them out and print on them).
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about how to format the pages. Should we leave a space for the strip and then lines for writing. Would each guest have their own page? Would it be weird if multiple people signed a page even if they weren’t in the picture that gets put on the page? Should we have a prompt like leave your best advice for bride and groom etc?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I think any printed prompt on a page has the sad opportunity of possibly being ignored.
If you want to do prompts, it would be better to print off your prompts and put them in a frame on the guestbook table.
Depending on your wedding, each guest having their own page might be a bit much! But if it’s smaller, one page per guest or couple possibly makes sense.
I’ve thought it might be easier (when I get married) to have pre-cut cards to paste into a scrapbook later. Then you can format it how you want and pair the notes to the photos easier. But then again, there might be some codgy ol’ fools who want a more traditional guestbook.

@Anise: excellent points!
Our wedding is smaller (50 or so people) but even 50 is a lot of pages lol. I think maybe the separate cards thing is a good idea.

We have been trying to figure that out too. Our photobooth automatically prints 2 copies-one for the guest and one for us. At this point, I think we are just going to have people sign on little cards (maybe 2×3). The back of the card will say, “Message, memory, doodle, advice, or just your signature” in different fonts and colors. I saw it on Pinterest. Later we will assemble the cards and photostrips into a scrapbook. I’m figuring we could do 3 strips and 3 cards per page. That would be like 60 pages for me… possibly less since a lot of people sign as couples.
