Guestbook idea for small guest count?

Recommended Posts

We ordered a guest book from shutterfly using our engagement pictures I plan on having a sign encouraging guests to share with us words of wisdom, rather than just their signature.

Thanks for posting a pic! I've been thinking about getting a guestbook from shutterfly, it's great to see a sample.

Some of the messages we got were nice and heartfelt, others were weird and somewhat inappropriate. We had people think it was not our real guestbook - not sure what would have led them to that thought, so we even offered to let people read what they wrote two days later and write something new if they wanted to but everyone said "nah, its ok." 

 

Here is a pic of what we had set up to explain to people what to do, our emcee even read it out loud to everyone so they knew!

Firey Nurse,

 

Did you bring glass bottles with you or did you rent them from the decor company?

We brought one large glass decorative bottle we got from michaels that matched our colours. All the messages were tied and placed in it. Here's a pic of it: 400

These are all awesome ideas! We love to do puzzles, so I am going to have a wooden puzzle made with one of our engagement photos on the front and have every guest sign the back of a puzzle piece. Once we get home we can put it together and frame it in a double glass paned frame! You can order them in different sizes depending on the number of guests and it would be pretty light and easy to pack!

Ohh it looks so good! Did Micheals have other colors? Do you have a template of your "instructions" to the guests? How many ppl did you have sign? How many papers fit in the bottle? Obviously you didnt have any problems transporting the bottle?

Thanks! Yup michaels had other colours, I can't remember exactly what but there were a few colours, pink, orange, purple, yellow or something. Just keep an eye out for them because they carry them sometimes in some colors and different colors different times. I think we had about 18 or so sign, they all fit. We needed tweezers to pull the ones out that people didnt wrap up small enough. We precut ribbons and tied one ribbon in a bow around the rest so they wouldn't blow off the table. I do have a template and will try to locate it for ya! :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
