    Great ideas! I loved Amy's dry erase boards.

      I got a bright colored pail and serving tray from Old Tyme Pottery and then unlined 3X5 index cards and colored Sharpies. Guests wrote messages on the cards and left them in the pail. We got some great sayings and advice and I'm going to make it into a scrapbook with pics from our DW and AHR.

        When i get to Punta Cana i'm going to buy postcards. At the reception i'm going to have each guest fill out a postcard and when we get home put in an album. That'll be my guestbook. i know other girls were doing something similar to this.

          Instead of having everyone sign their name, or having a wish jar and then have to put all those notes in an album, you get a sheet printed with questions on it for your guests to fill out. Some of the templates I've seen have a spot where you can either get a photo of the guests or you can have them draw a pic in the space.

          You could ask questions like "how many kids do you think they'll have" or "where will they be living in 10 years" or just ask for advice.

          I have a pic at work I'll try to upload tomorrow and the site that can do them up for you if you don't want to print it yourself.

          This link is kinda on the same lines (not the original site for my inspiration):

              I am making a scrapbook guest book to take to Jamaica. Every person/couple gets their own page with their picture (I will put a picture of them from the wedding once we get home) a spot for their wish for us and their favorite part of the wedding, which will be added after the wedding of course at a group dinner before everyone leaves. We only have 23 guests coming so I was able to really personalize everyones page, I love it!

                One of my favorite ideas that we did for a bride was we purchased one of the very large ceramic pigs piggy banks that are famous here in Mexico and we supplied notecards and pens for guests to sign happy wishes and put them inside of the pig! It was a big hit!!

                  I wanted to do the mat where guests can sign but I know how some people can get after a few drinks (as someone else mentioned here) and ruin the whole thing....so lately I've been thinking of doing something like this from Martha Stewart. It comes with 108 small note cards and guests write what they like and tuck it inside the envelopes that come attached to the pages.
