I’m not doing a guestbook in the traditional sense.  I’m doing a wish bowl and hopefully a photobooth of some sort.

I actually felt the same, I have never seen anyones guest book. I ended up buying a frame that comes with a nice pen with a picture in the middle. All the guests sign around the picture on the mat border. And it was only $10!!

we arent doing a guest book, we are doing a diy photo booth instead- backdrop, camera, tripod, remote shutter, chalkboard.  guests can write a message on the chalkboard if they want to, and take a pic.

We did a signature frame with one of our engagement pics in it.  They all signed around the edges and now I need to frame it.

The last wedding I went to didn’t have one & I honestly didn’t even notice that there wasn’t one until I got home and thought back on the day!

Instead of a guestbook they did take photos of every table so they could remember who was at their wedding! I don’t think they are that necessary & I doubt it will even be missed 🙂

I think that is fine! A lot of people do different things for guest books, or forgo them all together. It sounds like taking pictures and creating an album will be worth more to you and your Fiance.

My fiance was like … I don’t care to have everyones signature … they are not famous – haha. <- Guys perspective. =)

I really don’t want to have one … what people have to say really does not matter to me Tongue out

No, but seriously, we have pretty amazing photographers and videographers documenting our wedding …. so I will not miss out on any memories.

We’re going to have little cards for people to sign/write messages/advice/whatever on and then there’ll be a memo board for them to be stuck to. At the end of the reception one of my lovely and wonderful helpers has said she’ll pick them off the memo board and stick them in our card/hat box. That way after we come back from honeymooning we can take our photos and make our own coffee table/scrapbook. 

But then, we’re the type of couple that loves to do projects like this together. There’s nothing wrong with no guestbook (heck, I don’t think I’ve seen a guestbook at either of the 2 weddings I’ve ever been to), it’s your wedding and you can party how you want to! 🙂
