        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!

                Here are some threads:

                just a few links to help you.

                    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.
