Guestbook idea for small guest count?

Recommended Posts

We had 35 guests and did a wedding Mad Lib for guests to fill out - they turned out so wonderfully!  Some are laugh out loud hilarious and others are really sweet.  All of them are heartfelt and meaningful since guests got to write more than just a brief note of congratulations.  We had two different versions - but both included similar ideas: guest name, how long they have known us, advice and wishes for the future.  Below are two examples - these were also really simple to make.  We created the template on using Microsoft Publisher (2 per page) and printed on coloured card stock.

Some fab ideas here!  I hadn't even thought of the guest book yet!  As far as the chalk board idea, I love it but want to know do you leave a polaroid camera out for them to take the pic with or a digi camera.

Thanks for all the cool ideas. I've always said that I wanted to do a photo guest book with polaroid cameras. People can take a picture of themselves and when it comes out... write a message and put it in a guest book. Love the chalk board idea along with it!

Yep, that is the idea! People write a message on the chalkboard, then someone takes a pic of them holding it and all the photos go in a guest book after the wedding/vacation!

I went with the postcard idea; just bought them in the giftshop once I got there ($1 ea). Our wedding coordinator laid them out on a table with rose petals.

Most people just filled them out and left them on the table for me to gather at the end of the evening.

With some vintage postcards that I found at the local shops.

And I plan to have a pocket camera that can print pictures out instantly so that the guests can attach pictures of them beside the envelopes (have no idea yet), and I will pre-attach some envelopes into the guestbooks.

The etsy seller is http://www.etsy.com/shop/TotallySalinda .

 

However, I'm lodging a complaint because my guestbook was shipped for 1.5 months already and I still haven't received it yet. So frustrated! I guess it's just my bad luck. :-( 

Oh, you're kidding? That's awful- more unneeded stress huh? Did they provide you with a tracking# or anything?

they did, but it's untrackable. I dont think it's her fault, it's can be either 1. bad luck and is lost by the post office somewhere; or 2. because it's wooden item, it can be hold by custom to check (hopefully they wont damage the book) - Australian custom is very strict.

    • 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?
