You totally don’t have to do the typical book, many people choose other items/ ways that guest sign or write messages.

For example, I used a wine bottle & had guests sign their name on that. We then drank the wine on our one year anniversary & kept the bottle.

I’ve seen puzzle peices, frames, wishing trees/jars, fingerprint trees, pictures, etc. The whole point is to have something that you can look back at and see all those who celebrated your day with you. And the possibilites are endless besides the typical book 🙂

That’s why I’m doing a thumbprint tree. It is pretty, artworkish, one-of-a-kind, memento of the guests who will be coming. And I can hang it on my wall.

What more can you ask for?

I hate guest books because they just sit on shelves and collect dust. They weren’t for me.

As somebody who went through her grandmother’s possessions when she passed away I can’t tell you how much fun it was for me to go through her “boring guestbook”, to see who came to her wedding, how many people she still knew as an old lady, how many people she grew apart from later in life, who were at my mom’s christening (which also had a guestbook). I cried and cried over it…

It’s not really for you… you know what I mean?

I’m not doing a traditional book either, I’m having guests sign pieces of cardstock that I’ll incorporate into a scrapbook. that way there will be something more interesting than a bunch of signatures in a dusty old book but still on the more “classic” rather than “quirky” side (nothing wrong with quirky! just not our style)

Whatever you have, make sure you have someone or several someones to cojole people into signing it. I have a friend who only got about half her guests to sign her picture frame 🙁 sad.
