We did a fingerprint tree…and it turned out looking like a big slobby mess. I guess after people started having a few drinks they couldn’t figure out how to not sign their name super big and sloppy, write random comments or smear their fingerprint all over the place. It’s tossed in a closet somewhere because it’s too ugly to put on display. Sooo…yea, I wouldn’t recommend it.

I ordered a canvas print from miss design berry. It’s fun enough that we’ll keep it up for a little while.

We are doing Jenga games, have each sign a piece.  We like to play games so it works and it will be useful

We are using a Bible. People can highlight their favorite verse or a piece of advice and sign next to it.

underblueskies1016 :  We ordered one of these off of Etsy and will have people sign it in copper, gold and silver sharpies. The seller lets you customize it quite a bit but ours will be pretty similar to the one in the pic. Its on an actual canvas which is nice too.

We did the rock signing and it was great. They are all in a glass vase next to our favorite wedding picture. A girlfriend just got married and had a custom poster that everyone signed that I kinda wish I knew about.

Didn’t get a picture of the actual poster but I think it’s from custom alexander on Etsy as I found the below link with similar artwork that seems to be the same style.

We had our guests sign Jenga blocks! There was a sign that said “Building Memories sign a Jenga piece”

The last wedding I went to the couple had us sign a coffee table book on Japan, which was their honeymoon destination. The front page even included a photo of them with their names and wedding date. I thought it was a sweet keepsake that tied together their wedding and honeymoon.

underblueskies1016 :  my side of the bridal party gathered up pictures of us, separately and together.  Also some short written messages.  They made a collage jigsaw (I love puzzles) and guests signed the box.

We got married at a winery, but as a couple we really love wine and wine tasting so we probably would have done this at any venue. We had 5 bottles of wine for people to sign..one for each milestone anniversary: 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, and then a large bottle for our 25th. Now we’ll be opening a bottle on each of our anniversaries and reading the notes people left specifically for each one. As a bonus, it was the wine we served at our wedding, so we get to taste how it ages over the years as we celebrate.
