If you went to a wedding and the “guestbook” was a bunch of cards where you left advice for the bride and groom, would you actually do it? I haaaattte the usual guest books but i’m worried no one would participate. What do you think? Go for it or do something else?

What are you going to do with the cards afterwards? Paste them into a book or have them bound?

I’m not there yet to be honest! I hadn’t thought about having them bound, I kind of love that. I was going to put them in a box, sort of like a recipe box, just as a keepsake, or put them in a book kindof like a scrapbook.

We did somthing similar and I think it really confused a lot of people…lol. We had 3 different cards and they each said something different …we used We wish you…, Once upon a time…., and You know you are in Love when… I still like that we did something different. We only had about 75 guests, I think it would have been better had we had more guests.

I’d do it, but I’d be worried about the cards getting, scattered, lost, or dirty in the coure of the night.

I would say 20 couples filled them out, some people did all the cards! lol. Thanks 🙂

I’m doing something similar, since I like the idea of having little messages to read instead of just people signing their names. I’m having a poem that explains what to do on the table for guests who get confused. It’s something like this:
These cards are for our wedding book,
A modern twist on the standard look.
From each of your experiences,
Comes a very treasured gift,
A priceless piece of knowledge,
That we did not know exists.
Please share with us your wisdom,
About marriage, love, and life,
How to be a devoted, loving husband,
Or a top notch, first rate wife.
Please write your thoughts and gestures,
To share with us for life,
For the greatest gift of all,
Is the gift of your advice.

If I were going to do that, I would have the cards and the pens on the tables where people have more time to think about what they are going to write. I would use a little box- you can get recipe card boxes made of cardboard- and attach the instructions to the front of the box.
Ask your BM’s to remind people and go around and collect them at the end of the reception.

I like the idea! We’re doing a “fill in the blank” page and we can’t wait. When guests are done, there will be a tray for them to put them in. We’ll be making them into a book after the wedding.
