We’re doing a Quilting squares style guestbook…I haven’t totally nailed down the details yet, but im thinking 1 quilting square (which are already pre-cut and packaged at michaels or joanns) and pens either at each table(like 1 per 2-3 guests) or a separate table…his mom is then going to put it together for us…:)

We had a signature platter. I can’t wait to hang it in our kitchen! Here are a couple pics of it:

We went around our city and took pictures then created a guest book with those pictures that way we always have the memories of the city we got married in if we ever move. We used the MAC photo software and they printed the book. It was great and everyone loved it. It was also great spending a few Saturday’s in different areas of the city photographing it and spending that time together doing this project.

Not compeltely unique but instead of the frou-frou tulle and big white book, we’re considering using a ledger. I’m studying to be a registrar and so would use a ledger, and frankly I like the look of them more anyway.

We did a “photobooth” using a digital camera on a tripod, curtain for a backdrop, props and a blackboard bubble so guests could write comments.

Thanks for sharing, all!! Did anyone have problems with the line backing up on some of the ideas that take a little longer than just writing your name in a book?? (ie: photo booth, wishing tree, cardbox, etc)…. We’re expecting 350 people and I’m worried that if it takes too long they won’t do and we’ll lose the effect of a great idea! Thoughts?

We have a photo booth that does unlimited photos so we are setting up a guest book scrap book next to the station so people can glue in a picture of themselves and write us a note.

I cross stitched a wedding sampler and put it in a picture frame with an autograph mat. I love to sew, and we can hang it on the wall for remember our wedding day.

@gill84: I had a similar idea, but I was just going to leave spread large pieces of paper on the table and have people sign a corner of the pages. I like your idea better! I’ll I have to do is cut my paper into squares and find a basket to put the signed ones in.

I got a wedding poster from ellothere on etsy and I’m having people sign it. I’m going to put it in a frame without the glass on an easel and have fine tip sharpies available.

We’re thinking of doing a Quaker style marriage certificate for people to sign. We’re also doing a fauxtobooth with chalkboard speech bubbles for the less shy guests!
Hopefully those two will cover pretty much everyone.

Fiance and I are both artists, so we will be painting something abstract on canvas. At the reception, we will have the canvas on an easel and have paint pens for people to sign. That way its a unique piece of art that we and all of our loved ones created! I’m so excited!

Like daniellemybelle, we did the Fujifilm camera and guestbook. But that doesn’t seem like it will work with so many guests. I think it’s a good idea to have a big piece of art or a big poster to have everyone sign in different places. Then several can go at once.

We had a large decorative “wedding license” with part of our wedding vows, our favorite quote, date, location, etc. The last line was “Witnessed by friends and family” and under that phrase we had about 300 blank lines for our wedding guests to sign their names! I am sorry I don’t have a very good picture (don’t have all my wedding photos yet). I do have one from the night my husband gave it to me as a birthday gift. (Sorry for the low quality photo, but you probably get the idea.) We actually had it framed and is a lovely reminder of our wedding day! 🙂
