I am also doing a postcard guestbook.

 

I had my friend find me 40 postcards when she was recently in Mexico  (some are dated, lol, does noone buy postcards anymore?)

 

I plan to personalize them on the back with our names, wedding date, and location, but will have them scattered on the table for people to sign. I bought a nice box/suitcase for them to put it in when they are done.   

 

Once home I will find a album for postcards to store them.

    my friend got married in Germany and each guest had to fill the good wishes on a card/paper, then these are put a few of  in a small balloons, so many balloons get flown in the air and the tradition in that when residents in town find it somewhere or anywhere they mail it back the the couple mail box...that was so awesome for her so even a year later she still has people sending her the good wishes.

    @linaco80 Oh I like that idea! Very good way to receive unexpected reminders of your wedding day

    @calgarybride2015 I really like your post card idea. I was thinking of using sand dollars and having people sign them, then framing them in a shadow box. However when I started to research the idea I couldnt figure out how to get the sand dollars to stay within a shadow box. Anyway, this post card idea sounds nice.

    Oh that's nice. Great if people actually do mail them back! :) 


    I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

      @MissJen3 I am thinking to do this (below in the link) with my map and the NJ map for him and because we might not get so many guests perhaps the Yucatan map too Lol .BUT if the thing is super heavy I might just leave it and forget about it because wont get crazy carrying that

      @linaco80 Oh I love that! I agree though, it might be very heavy to transport back and forth.

      There are so many neat ideas!!!   Then you have to worry about transporting them and the like!

      I would be worried noone would send me the postcards back, so I will hope this one works too!

      @calgarybride2015
      I was thinking of doing this too but now I'm wondering where I'm going to carry all the extra stuff. Lol. I'll have to think about this one.

      The more I think about the postcard idea, the more I like it. Postcards would probably be pretty light to bring back after the wedding. The heavy part would be the photo book to put them in, but you would do that when you get home.  Now, to find enough postcards...

      The postcards really take up next to no space. I have 40 of them and they will probably be the easiest to pack.

      I am not going to bring the album to Mexico just put them in it after.

       

      I bought a medium sized box (suitcase/treasure box - not sure what to call it), that I want to store all my memories after that I thought I could bring to mexico for the signed ones to be put into.

       

      You can get postcards on the resort too if you wanted, but I am more the personality to want to travel with it all there and not worry about wedding stuff needing to be completed.

       

      @MissJen3 luckily I had a friend going to Mexico and she bartered for me. I got 40 for $18
