    We did a photo mat at our wedding.  We had a smaller wedding with only about 30 people attending so it was easy to fit everyone there.

    No guest book! That’s the one I’m having. I just have no idea what I would do with it after the wedding, and I’ve never enjoyed signing one myself. I’m sure it will go unmissed.

    We had people sign a picture book of the US National Parks with a favorite memory of a National Park or a recommendation for us…  It’s a beautiful photographic book and I love the words of wisdom everyone gave us!

    I’m going with the tree witht he fingerprints. I’m actually not having it at the wedding, I’m having at the big party we are throwing afterward. I am then going to have it framed and hang it in our new home.

    how about using engagement pictures or pictures of you guys throughout your relationship to create a book with a lot of white space for people to write?

    I’ve asked my talented sister to paint the trunk of a tree and we’re going to do a fingerprint tree.

    We’re having a photobooth, so I’m having guests sign a page out of a photo album with a ‘your photo here’ placard.  So their photobooth picture will go on the page they sign.

    Haven’t decided yet I’m excited to see what others will say! I’m kinda loving the rock idea though 😉

    I always hate having to come up with something good to write in guestbooks. So although I love lots of the crafty ideas, I’m just going to go with the traditional sign-in guestbook at the church.

    We have a photomat, but it isn’t one you sign, it’s one you engrave.  I hope people don’t take up TOO much room, but more importantly, I hope there aren’t big blank areas left!

    We’re doing what hermitcrab suggested.  We made the book in blurb, and chose a format with lots of empty room so that people can sign around the pictures.  This way, even if people don’t have much to say or lots of people don’t sign, we’ll still have a book of pictures from our relationship!

    I might be stretching myself thin on the DIY tip, but I’m going to try this out. I want to have an engravable metal photo mat. Pretty similar to this:

    But at $120, I can’t afford that, so I will go to Lowe’s/Home Depot to see if I can have some metal cut and fitted on to a signature mat to create the same thing. Hoping not to spend more than $50 for the metal and engravable pen.
