    I like the idea of something we can put on display though.

    I love the mad lib idea! Would be so fun to read on the plane ride home :)

      Hi! I did the thumbprint tree at my wedding and it was a hit! We have it hanging up in our apartment now, it's like a piece of art and so fun to look at :) We simply set our canvas down on a table so that it was easy for our guests to write on.  We set up the ink pad, pens, and wipes on the table along with some flowers. Don't forget to provide some kind of wipe so that your guests don't have to walk around with ink on their thumbs. Our table was right near our escort cards so that when the guests were walking into the reception they picked up their card and left their thumbprint. So fun!

           Great idea!! and thanks for sharing. :o) I don't know why I was thinking this needed to be set up at the ceremony location.. We are having a semi-private dinner at our resort.. I'll just see if they can set up a table for the thumb print tree, wipes, ink, etc... And for our At Home Reception, I'll get a Large mirrored frame from www.idoengravables.com

            I was married July 10, 2011 at Azul Sensatori, I did my own DIY sign in guestbook print.

            Since then I have done a few for other brides. I did one for my niece she and her husband

            are music instructors.

                    I also have decided on the thumprint tree and the Message in the bottle.  The Message in the Bottle notes will be read on our 1st anniversary. I also wanted to do a photo scrapbook, but think I will do that at the welcome dinner as a fun activity. I am one of the few people who still reads the high school yearbook, so I am sure I will use my guestbook and cherish it.

                      Hi Ladies,

                      I was thinking of purchasing a canvass painting from one of the local vendors and having all my guests sign it then have it stretched at home so it can be hung to admire. I'm thinking all we'd need is some black sharpies for people to sign it?
