Love that idea! So creative ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the first one is perfect, without the fish and more tropical colors like you had mentioned. I think it would be perfect!

I think that this is a very unique idea and very cool for your venue! It might be very hard for any more than 1 or 2 people to be working on their fish at any time (I’m not sure how many people will be there…this could be a non-issue) so that would be the only concern. It sounds really awesome though. And just as a side note, have your BMs and Groomsmen do theirs first to give people an example of what they’re supposed to do.

I think it’s a cute idea, but I’m not sure about it in real life. It would all depend on how messy it was. If people are all dressed up for the wedding, they may not want to be getting paint and ink all over themselves. I went to a wedding where the guests were supposed to use these rubber stamps to decorate their pages of the guest book and not that many people did it, I just assumed it was the mess they were worried about. Maybe a little finger bowl with lemon and some clothes next to the picture would help.

I love the idea! We are planning on doing the tree guest book, but I think an underwater scene would be perfect for a beachy wedding. How adorable!

@MsYellowJacket: Definitely have someone who knows what they’re doing start off. I would have no clue how to put my thumbprint then draw a fin. I do better when I see an example. So either have an example there, or let someone good start first. But it’s a great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you looked on etsy.com?  I saw a wedding guest “book” where people sign a surfboard…or another one that is a painting of two fish with bubbles, and people sign the bubbles.

so cute.  How about at least incorporating a veil and tie on a fish so we remember it is from your wedding?

I had a destination wedding and also likes the thumprint idea, but it did not

fit my location so I sketched my own. 



This is great beach guestbook
