    This is the frame I picked out last night (from the Bay here in Canada) for the little sign on the table to our guests about the book.  I loved that it was shiny like the engraved plate, and the wave pattern of the frame mimics my wedding ring:

     



    Here it is, my album purchased from the etsy seller below.  They have lots of options for fabrics, ribbon, etc. and were really good to work with.  Remember that the engraved plate was my own addition...pricey but I love it even more with it (see my previous comments concerning the label the comes with the book by the seller).  This is the silver duponi silk with the fuschia/hot pink ribbon.  So, now I have the camera, film, album, sharpies...and I'm ready to go!

          For those of you planning to do this with funny props - I just took a trip to Dollar Tree, and they had tons of cute masks, hats, necklaces, big sunglasses, etc.

            Let me ask you everyone keeps telling me this is not a good idea because who is going to "man" it. I only have about 25 people and 7 of those are kids so they might be right BUT I made my guestbook already and I love it and I ordered boas and masks and sunglasses from oriental trading and had a poster made at vista print. I have not bought the film and camera and I am so on the fence. I LOVE the idea but I am worried about who is going to want to be responsible for this??

              I plan to have one of my girlfriends "man" the guestbook...kinda.  Here's our plan...immediately after our ceremony, there will be a champagne toast and some appies on the beach while the photographer outlines her plan to our guests for the group/family photos and shoots with everyone.  Following that, the photog and my husband (whoa...that sounded weird!) and I will head off for pics for an hour.  While folks are mingling, Erin will introduce the "activity" and do things like make sure everyone knows to take horizontal photos (as that's how we've placed the plastic sleeves in our book).  She'll probably end up taking the majority of the first round of photos.  They can have fun with it while we're away...putting their photos in the book and signing a note on their page.  After that's done, as far as I'm concerned it's a free for all!  We'll have the camera, book, props on a table in the palapa and people can take pics all night (or until the film runs out).  We'll have a group of 34 (4 kids) and don't anticipate any major issues.  As far as I'm concerned, as long as each single/couple/family has a pic on a page with their message when the night is over, I'm happy!

                I was thinking the exact same thing. My ceremony is at 4pm and the cocktail hour can start at 5 so we can take some group shots of everyone for a half hour and than start the reception at 6 it is all right there anyway and i was thinking it would be great for them to do the photos while we are doing our pictures and they are having the cocktail hour. I wonder if I can enlist my 12 year old niece for this project lol she is the only person who wants to help me lol.

                  I found these really cute frames http://www.pfile.com...w-Photo-Folders which fit the instax photos perfectly. i was going to let each guest take a pic for my guestbook and one for themselves. So these little paper frames are perfect but you have to order 4 packages of 25 and I only need one. they only fit the fuji instax wide film so if anyone wants to do this and share the cost please let me know ;)
