Are you using a guestbook or alternative?

I'm very indecisive on if I want to put out a guest book with a table sign, or just a canvas for guests to sign that we can hang on our wall at home afterwards. What are you doing for your wedding?

    We might skip it or make an album at Costco of our engagement pictures and people sign it and write an advice or happy wishes

    We are doing a canvas to hang. I know we will hang it because we want to hang it now we absolutely love it!!! It's the Vegas skyline (where we are getting married)

    We actually used the design of our canvas for our save the dates too! Check out Etsy they have so many different options for guest book alternatives.

    We skipped. Honestly a book would just collect dust. Seriously I have no need to look at a book of signatures. 99% of the canvas or "art" style guest books are not to my taste at all.

    We're doing a book. We purchased a Fuji Instax camera for guests to take pictures of themselves and slide into the guest book we purchased off of Etsy and write us a note. We're not the type to display a canvas or something else with signatures all over it. It would look sloppy in our house, but we're minimalists.

    I'm going to have our guest use the photo from the magic mirror photo book. Stick it in our book and write something.

    It works out great since two print out.

    I would love to have a polaroid guest book, but I'm afraid that it just wouldn't work. I would love to have people write messages next to their pictures because that's the kind of thing I love, but I'm afraid no one would do it, or the camera would break, or something like that.

    I was just at a wedding this past weekend where they had a polariod guest book and it was amazing. There was a huge blank book and they had really cute washi tape and stickers for you to attach it to the book. They also had a huge bowl filled with film re-fills because the rolls only took 20 pictures. There was a huge line to use it but it was awesome since everyone was helping everyone else take pictures and things like that. My FH and I loved it so much we got home that night and calculated how much it would be for us to do that (we estimated around $250. The camera is about $60 plus all the film and the book) in case we want to add it at the last minute!

    We're doing a traditional guestbook. Seems like it's actually the unique and uncommon choice within wedding trends right now lol

    We are doing a Shutterfly book with our engagement pictures that people can sign. I do picture books anyway and have them around the house, so this is totally us!

    We're also doing a photo book with our engagement photos! We aren't likely to hang a big canvas signatures on our wall (or other wall alternatives I've seen) and in all honestly I would be worried about guests signing in a way that left uneven white space or something (I'm weird like that) and a photo book is something we would be much more likely to leaf through in the future than a traditional guest book.
