Fiance is a musician so we are using a guitar as a guestbook.  It will hang on the wall in his office (or maybe in our living room) with the others when the wedding is over.

moosejaw-very cool idea! My fiance plays hockey so you just sparked an idea to use a stick as well. Thanks!

We had a photobooth and had the guests put their pictures in it and write a message next to us.  My SIL and Brother-In-Law had someone take a picture of each person or couple when they entered and later took all the photos and made a shutterfly album.

I just thought of something as I was reading.  My Fiance is a huge golfer.  We live in a city that only gets 5 decent months of golf weather, and he’s on his 56th round this year.  HE’S CRAZY!  Anyway, we are having our wedding at a golf club in our city, and I’m going to bring up the idea with him tonight of getting our guests to each sign a golf ball and we’ll put it in a tall vase in our basement full of golf memorabilia.  Thanks for getting my juices flowing girls!

My FI’s cousin-in-law is a ball player, so they had several baseballs that guests could sign that would then be put into a case later for display in their house.

Hi Bee’s … Here are some pictures of our guest book! We bought it off Etsy from a lady in Latvia. It’s beautiful and unique! Handmade, leather & jute. Tons of pages. We started the first page off with our invitation… then the following 30 pages are our engagement pictures (i added vintage corner stays on 2 corners of every picture). We put quotes on pages over some pictures.. love & marriage quotes.
Our guests will sign the pages following all of our engagement pics. So much fun! I’m happy to share the Etsy selling if anyone is interested! Our book is 10×14 but she makes them in all different sizes and does custom jobs as well. 🙂

I originally planned on doing the quilt idea but have since decided to make a chess board from wood and paint and have my guests sign squares.  Since I will have more guests than 64 squares will allow, I am having each square made out of two retangles with similar colors (two dark rectangles to make a square and two light rectangles to make a square).  Therefore there will be two guest names per square.  After the wedding I am going to glaze over the signatures (made from two differnt colors of paint marker–white for darker squares and black for lighter squares).  I can’t wait to see how it turns out.  I decided the board game because my fiance and I are big into “game nights” and we could even hang the board on the wall if we wanted to.  I can not wait to see how it turns out!!!

I forget where I saw this but I thought it was SUPER cute and unique. You could probably even find a blank puzzle and puzzle glue at a craft store if you want to go more affordable.

I love the puzzle idea. I’m trying to find a out of the box idea, I think that would be adorable.

We’re doing the photo mat idea.  I did want a traditional guestbook for years at first, but I think I prefer the phot mat idea…that way the photo gets hung in our home and we can see everyone’s signatures too.  Might still do a tradtional book too though (just in case we run out of space on the photo)…we’ll see.
