My brother and his wife had the guest book that I originally wanted to do. We have other similar ideas in our weddings and I didn't want to feel like copy cats. Searching around, I found this idea. I am going to buy plywood and stain it. Glue the extra hearts to it and probably out our names on it. I bought the tree at Hobby Lobby and painted it with textured paint! I also got the hearts at Hobby Lobby on their half off wedding sale!
I think it's really pretty. Are the hearts going to be glued to the tree before guests sign them? If so, I think some guests might have difficulty signing them -- they are small, and will potentially be an awkward angles. Although they look really pretty on the tree, I'd probably leave the hearts unglued until after they've been signed.
Pretty good idea. We decided to go with our Engagement pic in a Frame and a mat everyone could sign we will put it on our wall. I had a Guest book before and it collected so much dust and I never saw it or dug it out.
