    I think 3 is overkill and would be overwhelming to your guests. I think your 3 ideas are really cute though. Maybe with the last one, you can incorporate it somewhere else so you can use it with one of your other guestbook ideas.

    yes i think anything more than 1 is too much! i voted for your third idea, but i would say it doesnt matter which one, just pick one!

    Anything more than 1 is too much in my opinion.  I like the 3rd idea (guestbook pages) the best of your options.

    I would not do more than one. Also I do not like the guestbooks where you have to sit there and think of a million things to write. I like to write a nice message and sign. I do not want to spend a long time at the guestbook trying to think of stuff to write. If I saw that I might just skip it. We had a regular guestbook and plenty of people could not even be bothered to sign that, so any more than one I think would be confusing and you would not get the results you want.

    More than one is, yeah, over kill.  

    As for the tree… you’d probably need a really BIG tree with A LOT of branches for that many guests!

    Don’t feel bad, I’m still trying to figure out how to fit our little “character sheet guestbook pages” into the wedding!  There’s gotta be a way, right? lol  (We’re not doing that because of 1)confusion with guests, 2)when would they be sitting down long enough to do it?!?, and 3)we’re going with our novel,  instead.

    i think it’s best to choose just 1…the pages idea is cute, but i actually think is a little too demanding of the guests, who might just want to write a short message and get back to enjoying the party. i love the quaker certificate, but then again that only asks for them to write their names right, with no room for a message? the tree might be best since they can write however much they want?

    I voted for your 2nd design. Very cute!  I think 3 would just be too much, everyone won’t sign them.

    I am using 2 different ones. The first is a framed picture of us with the big borders people can write on and the second is a glass jar with our names engraved on it and it comes with little cards for people to fill out with well wishes and we are going to try and wait for our first anniversary to read all of those.
