    This is such a cute idea!

        I love this! Do you have the template you used?

          I really love the fingerprint idea! This way we can put it on a frame and hang it up. Anyone know where we should put this at the reception? On the Welcome Table maybe?

            We had 25 guests and had them sign a matted picture frame (<$10 mat at Michaels) in permanent marker pens of our wedding colours. The mat was about a 2 inch border around an 8 X 10 photo.

             

            Tips

            -Good for 20-25 guests max, or get a larger frame, or multiple frames

            -Make sure you don't buy a mat that is bigger than your suitcase or plan on carrying it on

            -Mask off what part of the mat is hidden with painters tape (or the signatures will be hidden by the frame).

            -Leave the frame at home and travel with just the matting to save space

              Dido! This is a really great idea, thanks for sharing your awesome innovations! This definitely gives the guests other options to send a nice message besides the traditional signing of a guest book with all the same message!

               

              Good luck and happy planning ladies!

               

              Jill

                    There are some really great ideas here. No idea how I am going to narrow it down to one!
