Guestbook idea for small guest count?

Recommended Posts

I'm so glad I found this thread! We are having 16 guests and I had not even thought about the unique challenge a small guest count would make for a guestbook. These are some great ideas ladies!

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but a really cool idea would be to use a globe as a guestbook. With the small group, each person could write a great little message and have room to do so.

Yes, we did 14 and used a big photobook that people signed yearbook-style. We asked that they write more than just their names! Then we are bringing the same book to our AHR. It would have been too big for just the DW, but a smaller one would still totally work.

That is an awesome idea! The only tough part would be packing it I think.

I just completed an album at Shutterfly with a free code I found. I love the way it came out! I think it will be great to have at the showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and the wedding so that everyone gets a chance to write in it!

Heres ours: Not terribly unique- but everyone loved it- and although we had a frame with instructions for how to sign- some people still did not get the idea- as you can see there are random leaves that aren't on the tree lol. But it is now framed and hanging on the wall in my hallway right by our door. The mat was $12.99 at Michaels and I used a wedding coupon for 40% off one wedding item and the frame was $24.99 with a 40% off coupon. The acrylic paints were .59 cents and I bought a crystal ashtray that had three dividers to put the paint in. We bought baby wipes at the 99 cents store.

It looks good! Even the leaves on the floor give it a more personal look. cheesy.gif

I know I am replying so beyond late on this topic but I wanted to throw in that A. I LOVE the fingerprint guestbook idea but I have had A LOT of push back from family and friends on this. They are sketched out by the fact that their fingerprint would be out there like that. But in reality, it'll be in a frame on a wall somewhere in my home. Has anyone else had this problem? I find it to be very bizarre.

I made my postcards instead of a true guestbook. I'm giving each guests 2; one to send and one to drop in my wishing well to serve as my guestbook.

    • 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?
