Well, for starters I would stop sharing my ideas with other people if you don’t want them to be “stolen”. 

Why is it so important to come up with something “better”? If you’re trying to compete with your friends and family, you’ll probably just end up dissapointed.

How many guests will overlap between these weddings?  Does it really matter if your immediate family recognizes the thumb print idea?

I think the thumb print tree is fairly common these days, so maybe they didn’t actually steal your idea.  Perhaps they saw it elsewhere and liked it.

The thumbprint thing really isn’t new/unique/original.

What about doing a rock book? People writing on rocks with sharpies?

@SomethingFishy: Does she have to fill you in on every detail pertaining to her wedding? Most brides just see things they like and go with it. I agree with

BoiledPNut, the thumb print tree is very common nowadays. Maybe she wasn’t even thinking of your wedding when she chose it.

If you truly love the idea then do it. It doesn’t matter that other people have done it before. Photobooths are crazy popular now but you don’t see brides shying away from them because someone else they knew had one.

I’m getting beautful hurricane glass vases, which will hold the rocks once signed. I hope to keep either at my front door or on my mantle. Not sitting in a drawer that’s for sure!

If you sew or know someone who does you could have guests write something on qulting squares and turn that into a quilt.

There’s also the option of just having a different “looking” tree… I’m sure there are lots of twists on this… as pp have said it’s become a pretty popular option.

Thumb-Print trees have been ALL OVER THE PLACE in wedding-blog-land. So I hate to sound rude, but I don’t think that it was some incredibly original idea that you could expect would only be at your wedding. I love this idea, but lets face it…it’s becoming pretty common nowadays. How about getting some (or making some) “movie tickets” that guests can sign and then you can maybe glue them or pin them to a board of some sort, frame it, and hang it up somewhere. Or some variation of this idea. I think it could be pretty unique. Or maybe making a movie marquee with your names and wedding date on it (maybe out of wood) and having all your guests sign it. Then you can hang it in your house. In the long run I think you’ll be happy that you went with something a little more unique.

I like the idea of doing something with them ‘autographing’ which I think fits into your theme. Perhaps some kind of walk of fame?

What about a getting a poster made like a movie preview, but it’s your wedding.

Ie…

Coming 09.02.12

Boy meets girl…

or whatever, give some kind of title.

then your movie captions are your wedding party (starring bride and groom, with supporting cast).

THEN having everyone sign the movie poster in like silver sharpie!
