I posted on this not too long ago and got lots of creative responses.

We did a picture frame mat to be signed for our wedding.

I commented on @oyster’s post, but I’ll comment here too.  We’re doing a photo guest book through mypublisher.com.  It comes in the mail tomorrow – if you are interested, PM me and I’ll let you know how it turns out.

I think it’s your wedding and you should do what you want and not worry about what other people say. Besides how many times are you going to look at a bunch of signatures??

Our guest book is a wishing tree- if we can pull it off, a cherry blossom one because we are having a cherry blossom theme. But if not, a bamboo one, like a Japanese tanabata tree.

But I agree, do what you’d like honey!

We decided on a guest book, now adays you can get really creative and personal ones to suit your wedding.

The frame idea is good too! Smile

I came across this company in a wedding magazine.  It is a guest book, but I think it’s kind of fun.  🙂  I haven’t looked at the website MUCH yet, but they seem more fun and silly than traditional guest books.

We’re using loose scrapbook pages– our guests will stick a photobooth photo on a page and write us a little note.  🙂

I am doing an inscribable photo mat – it actually comes with an inscribing pen for people to engrave their messages into a metal mat. I think it looks very classy and doesn’t take away from the photo.

We did a photo matte that we’ll frame with a wedding photo and then hang – we did this because I knew I’d never look at an actual book, but would see the frame whenever I walked by it.  Do what’s best for you!  A guestbook isn’t “boring,” it’s classic and there’s nothing wrong with that.

My only major advice is make sure to have extra pens… ours went missing halfway through the night.
