    Did or will anyone put a sign on the guestbook table directing guests to sign it? If so, what does it say?

      I was planning to use my FI nieces to man the guestbook, but now that they may not be going I don't know what I will do. I never thought of a sign. I'm interested in what everyone suggests.

        I asked 2 cousins to be "special attendants" and as people got off the boat they directed them to sign the mat at the table. They were in charge of making sure everyone signed it and passing out the bubbles. They had to round up some stragglers later but they got it done.

        Side bonus for them, they got to be on the programs as special attendants, and they got gifts...woohoo!

          I didnt only becuase by the time it came down to a detail that specific I said the hell with it. I think it would be really cute though.

            We are having a photo guestbook, so while everyone gets to the beach for the wedding, they will get their pics taken, and then they will be put in the guestbook on their page. When they are getting their pics taken, whoever is taking the pics can let them know what it is for, and if my FI nieces don't make it, they should be able to figure it out hopefully. I am also putting the favors on the guestbook table in little individual boxes with the guests names on them, so I don't think they will miss the table.

            Another idea is to have the book passed along the tables for thoses that didn't sign it. After all, DW are usually smaller, with not too many tables.

              i did, but that's because we're doing to postcard guestbook. i don't have it near me but it says something like "please take a moment to write us a postcard filled with well wishes and memories. we'll mail them back home and enjoy reading each one after our honeymoon." i printed it on nice green cardstock and put it in a dark wood frame.

                I'm still debating what I want to do for my guestbook... If I do a photomat or plate I will probably just assign someone to be in charge of it.

                If I go for the photobook type thing - where w/ the help of my ex-MOH I am going to make it a scrapbook with the photos of each group and their wish/advice written to us on squares of cardstock or something - I would probably set up a sign like the one below to explain what I want.

                  These are all great ideas! Thanks...I was also going to put the favors on the same table but I might want to put them at the dinner tables too...

                  I am the most indecisive person i know! UGH!
