    Why don’t you do the formal guest book at the ceremony and the canvas at the reception?

    @Meme123Sha: Who’s paying?  

    If you’re paying, then it’s really YOUR choice.  If grandma is paying, she gets the pick.  However, out of respect to her, you might want to tone down the picture a smidge. 🙂  (I’m not sure how ‘edgy’ you’re talking, but when I think ‘edgy’…. it wouldn’t be a picture my FI’s Mormon parents would approve of 😉 let alone a grandmother!)

    I don’t think that having guests sign in a book with pictures instead of in a blank book is all that non-traditional. It’s a spin on tradition. I say go for it!

    Could you do the picture one at the rehearsal dinner if you are having one?

    I like the idea and you are still having something related to a guest book so you are keeping with tradition. We had everyone sign quilt squares and my grandmother made a full quilt for us. I have no clue what I would have done with an actual guest book.

    @Jenniferk6: We’re having a book w/ pictures, too. That way, it can be more of a coffee table book than just something that everyone has their name printed in.

    I like the idea of having both, why not have the canvas to sign just the names and a guest book where people can sign and leave their well wishes and stuff?

    I want to do a poster for people to sign and little cards for the well wishes that I’ll put into the wedding album later.

    @lionskitty:  I def think having both would be cool. How would you make sure everyone signs both?

    I’m thinking of doing a wishing tree instead of a guest book, and incorporate the tags into something for our house.

    @YouEnjoyMywedding:  A sign? Something asking people to please sign the picture for your new home and to sign and leave their notes and wishes in the book for you to look back on? I think simple instructions including what to write and where.
