What on earth did they write that is THAT bad? I’m so curious! Covering it up artistically like you’re considering is probably your best bet.

Commenting to follow – someone drew a penis on my sister’s frame. Now it is stored in a closet. We had a poster with tree leaves for everyone to sign. The flower girl wrote her name in giant letters directly over where our names and wedding date were printed. Oh well, I should have learned from my sister’s experience:)

lubride:  nope, don’t transpose it. For 3 messages, cover them with some flowers from your wedding day. However, I have to know what they say! I’m dying with curiosity here!

god I will be so pissed if this happens to me!!! we are spending decent money on the signing book.

i agree with the flower cover suggestion.  or the stamps could work.  I would have to see an image to weigh in on how to cover it up

I googled and found this:

“With a dry erase marker, simply draw over the permanent marker and then wipe away. For glass you can use regular toothpaste (not gel) combined with baking soda, WD-40, nail polish remover, dry erase marker or rubbing alcohol. Wipe your chosen material on with a paper towel. Repeat until the stain is gone.”

And there are a few suggestions here too: http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Permanent-Marker-from-a-Smooth-Surface

The only other thing I can think of is whether you could cover up the rest of the frame, and fade this bit in the sun?

lubride:  Can you try some pretty scrapbook quality stickers? Some hearts perhaps? I was addressing a Valentine card envelope and made a mistake on the address. I didn’t want to scribble over it so I took three small heart shaped stickers and layered them over each other in a way that covered up the boo-boo.

But about your problem — it really sucks that people wrote inappropriate things on something that was meant to be kept forever. Wow! Sorry that happened to you!

lubride:  is it glass? Try writing with a dry erase marker over it and then erasing. I’m a teacher and have used this before! 

I also would love to know what they wrote.

Your artistic ideas sound like your best option, unless some of the suggestions that BeeDD suggested. I’m sorry someone did that. The worst thing we had was them acting like they were a political candidate, and signing it as if the candidate had been there. Now that I hear these stories I’m greatful that’s all that happened.

Given that the notes are on the matte,not the glass, I would find something related to your wedding- a piece of lace, something from your centerpieces, make a fabric rose from one of your napkins etc and cover it up.
