So I've actually been quite lazy but we did the white board guest book and it worked out great! Like I said, I've been lazy so I haven't printed the pictures into a book, yet!!! But here are some shoots from the wedding. My cousin was the "photographer" for this and just went around during the cocktail hour and took everyone's picture. Some did come out a bit reflective because of the surface of the white board but that's where the beauty of digital photography comes in and being able to look at the picture, deleting it if it doesn't turn out well and taking another!

So cute NaM!

I love this idea and totally want the Fuji Camera now! I love that it looks a little bit retro and I think that it would be fun to be able to hang the pics up with clothespins to display at the reception.

NaM: I love your photos-I like the way they all wrote very big.

 

I saw the idea on this site-the bride posted a link to her shutterfly account. I am having guests write big and using a digital camera so we can make sure the picture is good-without a white flash spot in the pic.

I had never heard of this idea before joining this forum. I've absolutely fallen in love with the idea, and am so excited to see how it turns out!

We did a photo guestbook! I ordered ours through shutterfly and put all of our favorite pics from our relationship and through the years. And people signed it like a yearbook and loved it! I love going through it and looking at what everyone wrote!

I love the whiteboard idea but dont want the reflective shots. I wonder if using a chalk board and chalk would be better...

I recently saw a blog with a wedding that had chalk boards all over as part of the decor..like little chalk boards on the tables with the table numbers on them and two large chalk boards by the doors to the reception, one with the table seating chart and another one with the menu for the wedding meal on it. I thought it looked SOO cute! Just another idea..

I love this idea and looked up the Fuji Camera. It sells for 100.00 without film but I looked on eBay and you can get them at a Buy It Now price of 67.00 with film and no shipping cost. Just thought I'd let you know.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
