    You could do a thin paint pen with silver or black ink. They look somewhat fancy and are permanent.

    I think a ballpoint pen would be just fine for a photo guestbook. I dont think sharpie looks cheap at all. Could you do both?

    you should use something acid-free and archival quality, which sharpie is not. go to the scrapbooking section of michaels and look around for something acid-free.

    Yep you need something acid free.  If you go to Michaels, Martha Stewart has a line that has a TON of colours.  You could do two colours that match your wedding colours.

    Hope this helps.

    You could wrap the sharpie in ribbon or something else to dress it up. It’s really easy to do, I’ve made tons of flower topped pens, and they’re quite simple.

    Here’s a youtube tutorial for it

    Paint pens take a while to dry, I would do two or more differnt colored sharpies. If you wnat to dress them up, wrap them in ribbon or something.
