Hey bees, have a small question regarding guest books.
Since our reception will be flowing between different locations within the same venue (from cocktail hour to the main dinner to dancing/desserts on an outdoor deck), at what point should we plan to set out our guest book stuff? In the beginning before people possibly start leaving or in the later portion of the evening?

Choose someone to be in charge of the guest book, and put it out right away. Most people didn’t even know ours was there!!! EVEN though it was right at the entrance to the reception area.

@kestane: Most of the time I see the guestbook used before the ceremony when they walk in. sign the book, programs, then sit down. But if you have more coming to the reception, I’d say catch them at cocktail hour while you still have everyone still there. Some go home early after dinner. Some will be to drunk later to sign or just to tired!

@Jacquelinesc84: thanks for the input guys seems like we’ll get it going first thing in the reception before we get wrapped up in other things and forget about it. It sounds like a job for my mom to keep her busy 🙂 I’d hate to put all this work into it and have people not notice it’s there. And we definitely don’t want anyone to sign anything while intoxicated!
