- Wedding: September 2014
Hello bees…advice needed!
We are using a quaker style marriage certificate as an alternative to our guest book. The wedding certificate will show where and when our wedding took place, a space for the two of us to sign, and then a large space for our guests to sign that the witnessed the exchange of vows. After the wedding, we plan on framing it and hanging it our bedroom.
My question is regarding the number of signature lines that we should have. The certifiate that I’m looking to buy has room for 96, but I can get a larger size to hold more signatures if need be.
We haven’t really finalized our guest list yet (I know, I know…so bad! We’re 8 months out and REALLY need to get that done). Where we stand right now we’re looking to invite between 180 and 200. I know that if our list was set in stone right now – obviously not everyone will actually come to the wedding.
Do you think that we should have enough lines for the exact # of people that will attending or do you think couples will be more inclined to share a line together? For those of you who have used a marriage certificate – what did you find that most people did?
