Another thing to remember is the size of the table/area where they will be signing.  We did a poster guest book with two markers.  The table was small, so no more than two could really sign at a time anyway.  Don’t over think it.  2-3 is plenty.

I had four markers for my guest book, 175 people. But the important thing to consider is where the guest book will be displayed. If only 2 people can stand there, then two markers is plenty. Ours was displayed on a table where 3-4 people could stand at once, so we bought 4 markers.

I’d have 5-6 just in case one dries out or stops working or someone walks off with one, but I am always over thinking and very cautious.

We did had a canvas with our name and wedding date and photobook to sign. Along with instructions to sign both, we put out Sharpie pens and thick markers in 6 colors. It’s cool to see which colors were used most (silver and gold) and by having options of what to sign and lots of colors, we got a lot of signatures.
