We found an old victorian catalog album and filled it with our engagement photos.

At the reception we placed a pair of vintage alpine race skis and had our guests sign one of them.  The skiis are standing in the corner of our living room.

We also made a travel guest book for our guests to sign once they checked out of the hotel.  It was made of stained wood with “Guests” stenciled on the front.  The pages had a few questions for them to complete:  name, address, how they know us, what they did while in the resort town, fav part of the wedding and lastly a wish for us.  I plan on putting the silly photobooth pics in this book.

We had ours made, which I love. But after ordering I found something wonderful at Davids Bridal and was somewhat envious of it! But anyways, we got a free photobook through Davids Bridal for shutterfly and made this:

you get the idea, 21 pages 🙂

I don’t have any pics of the Davids Bridal guest book but found one pic online but basically it’s a mirror picture frame with an engraving pen that the guests use to engrave messages in the mirror

And it’s only $15.00 right now

@IUrebekah3RT:  Thanks a bunch!  It’s not super original as I have seen it done but we LOVE the skiis.  Our house is a mix of modern, antique, and rustic so they look great in the house.

Yes we are skiiers.  I used to downhill race and coach and my hubby grew up in a local mountain town where we got married.

I have seen people use other neat antiques: old sleds, snow shoes, suitcases, chests, etc. then incorporate them into the home decor.

Good luck on your search.  🙂

Me again!  Here is our other guest book.  Since you are looking for something without engagement pics I thought I would post.

I made it to look like a photo album (minus the plastic picture sheets) we saw in Whitefish, MT.  I plan on using photo corners to put all our photobooth pics on the backs of the entry pages.

Me and Fiance love Hawaii and my family is from the islands, we are ordering a print of a vintage map of the islands, we will set it up at the reception and have our guests sign the print, then we’ll frame it and hang it on our living room wall.

@IUrebekah3RT:  It actually didn’t cost me too much money….just the cost of the backdrop ($60) and props.  I lucked out and asked 1 of my 2 photographers to stay and take pics at the photobooth area.  Since it was within the time of their package they agreed to do it free of charge.  Maybe it would be an option for you?
