    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: Posted Image

            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! :)

                  we found a dish on etsy that we are going to have the guests sign - i figure it's something we can have forever and it'll be where we can see it :)
