No. It will confuse guests and be unnecessary. There’s no reason to separate them – you’re going to need to write thank you’s to all of them, so buying 3 guest books is just silly.

I don’t understand it. Not only is it confusing and a waste of pages as you will be left with 3 books 1/3 full instead of 1 full.

You are getting married. 2 families are becoming one. Your family is his family, his family are yours and the same with friends. I dont know why you want to keep it divided.

I think it’s a bit odd, things should be about unity at a wedding, not to mention surely you have mutual friends? Whose book would they sign.

It is hard enough getting people to sign guestbooks, put 3 out there and they’ll end up empty.

why?? I will admit i dont like guest books full stop so the thought of having 3 of them with most guests saying more or less the same thing seems a waste

The purpose of a guest book is to record who is there. Unless there are separate events, why would you have separate books?

@outgoingcutie15:  I get what your saying but i wasn’t just talking about mutual friends. Does them being your friends and your husband not knowing them mean that he isn’t going to welcome them as his friends aswell? He may not know them but i’m sure any friend of yours is a friend of his.

I just think that putting your friends in one book and his friends in another may have a negative impact on some people who easily jump to conclusions.

For example your friends Jo and Sally go to sign the guest book and when they get their they see 3. They then think that they aren’t good enough to be with family or that your husband doesnt like them. That they are your friends and not his.

We all have opionions just trying to give some perspective of what others may or may not think.

Why?  One is sufficient and proper if you are going to have one at all.  Honestly, unless it’s something cool that you can frame or set out, it’s going to end up in a box in the attic or basement anyway.
