    We plan to do the postcard thing as well. There are some other websites like Zazzle where you can get postcards for specific places too. We are either going to get some type of book for the guests to put them in or maybe some type of treasure chest or basket to collect them (later I would put them into a scrapbook or something similar). Good luck everyone!!!

      Instead of a traditional guest book I'm doing individual notecards in my wedding colors.  It's more for "well wishes" then people's addresses.  There will be a table with a large hurricane vase in the middle with approx 300 notecards (in green, yellow & orange) on either side of it with envelopes.  People can write their wishes on the card and drop it in the vase.


      I figured this way I can decide after the reception how I want to display all the wishes.  Frame some of the special ones and create my own guestbook afterwards!

        @cgeris - I love this idea. It's a great way to accommodate another guest book without having to buy another one or spend a lot of money. I can add the "well wishes" to our DW guestbook and the AHR guests will not feel bad because they won't even see it.

            I LOVE the idea of doing postcards for the destination part. We're going to self-address and stamp them and have our guests fill them out and mail them from Cuba so we'll receive them when we get home.


            For our at home reception, we're going to expand on that idea and get a whole bunch of postcards from here (home) for our guests to fill out.


            Now I'll just need to find a book to display them.

              We are doing the caricature drawing.  We already had it done and he placed us on the beach.  We absolutely love it and are planning on going to Kinkos to have it enlarged with a border/frame for signing.  I don't want the original drawn on as I have seen what can happen to photos if they are left out too long at a reception.  We are only have 15 in Jamaica with us so I really hadn't thought a whole lot about a guest book for there.  Guess I could take a small white board to jamaica and take pics of the guest with it on the beach.

For our AHR, we intend to do the whiteboard guestbook that a number of brides on this forum have done, and we'll make a scrapbook with those photos. Hope this helps! You should do a search on guestbooks- there are some other creatibe ideas in here if you're looking for something out of the ordinary.

                I love the idea of using a caricature print as your guestbook. I have seen an example of one and it looks phenomenal! I think I may do one as well. Who did you use for your caricature pic??
