    I’m worried about this too. I love the idea but I’m worried about children (or anyone really) getting ink everywhere. My plan is to have baby wipes (or similar) available so guests can wipe all the ink off on the spot, and then to have the table set up so really small children can’t get to it. I don’t know if that will be enough though.

    I personally decided against it -due to messiness.  I’m doing a wishing tree instead.

    My roommate had one at her wedding with baby wipes and some step by step instructions. She had people wipe their finger before and after doing their thumbprint. I’m not sure why — maybe it had something to do with the oils in the skin? Anyway, it turned out great, but there weren’t any kids at her wedding to spoil it.

    I’m planning to do one, and I’m going to give one of my 11-year-old cousins the “very special job” of overseeing the guest tree table. That way, she feels included in the wedding and our tree stays safe from little hands.

    I think these are super cute, so I voted that you should do it. The only thing to make sure of is to have wet wipes so people can get the ink off of their fingers/thumbs.

    i think its fine as long as you dont have super young kids there or keep it out of their reach. also test the ink to make sure its easy to wipe on and off, you dont want folks accidently swipping things with green ink everywhere!

    We’re thinking about doing it with those at the rehearsal dinner rather than in place of a guest book at the actual wedding.  There will be fewer people to worry about, and usually the most important people are at the rehearsal too.
