Not set on this yet .... But we like the postcard idea. We are visiting our resort this January, so I will pick up postcards while down there. I'm going to include them in our welcome bags with a note explaining what to do. (I stole this idea from another bride) The note will read something like: "when you get a chance, or when you get home, please send us a postcard. Tell us your favorite memory from the trip or a wedding wish. We will be using these post cards as our guest book, so be sure to complete and send one. (I will have added postage to the postcard) The only thing that is pulling me away from this idea is the peoe may forget to send them and then I won't have any guest book.... We will see :)

    Kay- I agree about the postcard idea as that is what I am leaning towards but want to make sure people fill them out so I have a guest book. Has anyone done the postcard guest book idea and had success?

        I love the fingerprint tree idea. I only have about 24 guests coming so I hope I can find a tree that would look ok with such a small amount of guests.

        24 guests booked

          I am thinking of making one or more wine bottle labels with our logo and 1st yr, 5yr, 10 yr and 20 yr anniversary. I'llbuy a black bottle of wine and have guests sign it with a silver pen. I may only do one bottle depending on whether i buy them at home or when I get there. Something different. I know I'll never look at the guest book again so why not be creative. I"ll definitely enjoy drinking the wine. LOL

            This is what we will have, guestbook from etsy shop.

             

             

            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.

                  is anyone using the same guestbook for the AHR? I think that is what we are doing. We have a lovely huge photobook of us we are going to get people to sign yearbook style, but I think we will use the same for both.

                    We are back from our wedding and our guest book was the message in a bottle idea....I am wishing now that perhaps we had done something different, although I am not sure if that would have helped our guests out either. We had our guests go for cocktails at a close-by bar for the 2 and a half hours we did pictures, and lets just say they drank....a lot! LOL! 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!
