One thing that I didn’t consider, was how much it would be affected by whether it was “advertised” or not. I just assumed that people would “come across” the guest book in their 60 minute cocktail hour! Apparently not… 

I think ours was like 30 pages, but many of them were just a picture, or a page with one picture and 8 lines or so (I like big lines, b/c I think people need a hint that they don’t need to squeeze their names in and their addresses!) I designed it myself using our e-pix, with picaboo. I think I had about 120 lines, and 200 people attended. Some pages were full, and some pages were almost empty. (I was happy to see that people seemed to flip around in the book to sign pages.) I think overall, about half the lines got filled, but there wasn’t any announcement or reminder to sign the guestbook, nor was it in a place that everyone *had* to walk by.

I found this a while ago, http://www.mixbook.com/photo-books/wedding/wedding-guestbook-5436737 and I kind of used it to get some ideas on layout and quotes and things.

I used Shutterfly to do mine and totally love it.. I wouldnt change a thign.  I did a 20 page 8×10 photo hard cover book using various pictures throughout our relationship.  It was sort of a chronological story book of things we did while we were dating, so people read through the whole thing, and gravitated to a page they were sort of a part of to sign.  I did pictures on every page and just left about half a page or more white space per page for signatures.  I didnt use any lines cause I like the sort of year book random signature style. We had about 30-40 signatures in there with probably room enough for double that.  Some people just took a little of the page, and I had like 2 people that took up a whole half page.  Heres my book page spread.
