    For the first sign, I would remove the quotes and substitute “margins” instead of “white part”. I would also put a period at the end of the request because “Enjoy your evening” is a separate sentence. End it with a period or exclamation point.

    Really, I don’t think having a sign and activity books/glow-in-the dark things is really necessary for adults. Why would adults want a kids activity book? Am I missing something?

    We did the same type of guest book and didn’t have a sign.  Our guests figured it our when they saw the pens on the table.  I’d ditch the sign.  As far as the activity book/goodie bags, why not just put a few of them on each table and then place the goodie bags for the kids on their chairs (if you’re doing assigned seating).  People will figure it out.

    I’d say white matting instead of white part.

    And for the second sign, I’d just have two signs with the goodies in two baskets ” For the kids…” and “For the adults…”

    Can you have the kids bags already set out at the children’s place at the table.


    I also don’t think you need to tell people how to sign the guest book.  Unless you are inviting a lot of dummies people will know to sign on the white matting around the frame.

    I think the best way to get people to sign your guest book/photo mat/etc is have the bridal party do it first so everyone gets what they’re supposed to do. Plus, the signed photo mat thing is really popular – people will certainly know what to do when they see one.


    For the activity books, I like the PP suggest of “for the kids” and “for the adults”…or maybe “for the young” and “for the young at heart” just so it’s more playful.
