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

    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 think its a good idea being as its different from the usual. But what about a twist on the usual guest book? Were having a photo book made of photos of us from when we first got together until the weddings but made in a way where the guests can sign on the pages with the photos.

    Basically something like this, but more of a book than spiral bound. http://www.google.com.au/imgres?q=wedding+photo+guest+book&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=1360&bih=673&tbm=isch&tbnid=jQCk87RTBT-ZnM:&imgrefurl=http://whitewillowweddings.com/tag/wedding-guest-books/&docid=IruTrlcFsXtWaM&imgurl=http://whitewillowweddings.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/guestbookphotobook.jpg&w=720&h=480&ei=o8BST4PGJ_GNiAf52KHoCw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=313&vpy=374&dur=31&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=168&ty=112&sig=109513006689749883148&page=1&tbnh=113&tbnw=147&start=0&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:9,s:0

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

    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.
