That’s crazy!  I thought this EXACT idea myself too….  That way people have something to do during dinner AND we’d have a keepsake for the holidays.  I had seen somewhere where they had paisley shaped ornaments people wrote on, but I couldn’t find it anywhere.  I’m thinking of doing bird shaped ornaments they can write on.  So that not everyone says the same generic thing, I may start them off w/ a few words, i.e. In the future… or Today was… or I wish…. It was touching…. etc

OMG that is such a cute idea! I love ornaments. My wedding is in June do you think thats weird to do something like that then. I think it should be a winter wedding BUT I see you ladies don’t have winter weddings…….I love this idea. You can get discount stuff after christmas too πŸ™‚

the heart ones are cute….I was thinking something along the line like this

 

http://www.google.com/imgres?q=ornament+guest+book&hl=en&client=safari&sa=X&rls=en&biw=1090&bih=567&tbm=isch&prmd=ivns&tbnid=9OhN1w6U79VZfM:&imgrefurl=http://chezwedd.com/winter-wedding-decor-ornaments/&docid=OHOLDT5K1RBZJM&w=600&h=400&ei=13NATvHzA9ClsAKandDQBg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=271&page=1&tbnh=131&tbnw=173&start=0&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0&tx=46&ty=84

then I could use the colors of my wedding

 

or have clear ones and put tinsel in them ??

Thats why I was thinking June seemed to be a little strange doing them but if I stuck with something different like the flat wood ones maybe not…..I just dont have that many ball kind and I think it would be awesome!

I love all these ideas!

i just noticed that some may not see the link I posted before.  These were what I saw on the Knot.  I thought they were very unique.  Any ideas where I can find something like this?  I like that it’shas a pattern & that it’s not all just a flat surface.  

Blessings Tree Notes

Instead of a book, guests wrote notes on these paisley cards and then hung them up on a branchy “blessings tree” at the reception.

porcelain bird ornament

I would really like birds of some sort.  Thinking of diy felt or wood.  These are porcelain.  It would be cool if we can find unfired porcelain birds, have people write something on it, then fire them.

@themiddlelittle: you could use a a sharpie marker in silver or gold and black or a paint pen but I think sharpie would be a lot nicer
