FH and I are struggling with this choice because there are so many good options lol. We like all these guest book options. We are also having a caricature artist at the reception and thought we could get ours done and have a border around it and have people sign there. Can you guys give opinions and/or pros/cons of each idea? Thank you

    I think whatever option you choose you need to have it before the reception so during the cocktail hour guests can sign it. Most people will forget once the reception begins. I wanted to have something we could hang on our wall and that meant something to us. We have a lot of redwood trees on our property so when I saw this tree sketch on Etsy I knew it was perfect, plus we got married in winter. My husband made the frame for it too.

    Daughter specifically didn't want anything to hang on the wall (not a big fan and has seen them not look great if many people skip it or if they all sign on one side of the frame or whatever). She and SIL LOVE games and play them frequently, so for them having guests sign Jenga blocks made a lot of sense. They used the set they already had (so, no need to pay $44 for a "special" set of blocks). We took a block to Michael's and tested different pens to find ones that worked best (e.g., fine enough tip since people would be writing pretty small, ink that didn't bleed into the wood grain, etc.). She put all the blocks in a pretty basket and she had the pens and a small sign asking guests to sign them on the table at the entrance to the venue. Now, when they -- or one day their future kids -- play Jenga, they have a sweet reminder of their wedding guests, but it's not out in their home 24-7.

    We're doing a version this sign with a metal bucket that we have. After the wedding I'm going to compile it into a list and frame it. When we complete a suggestion we're going to take a picture and send it to the person/people who suggested it as a thank you for giving us that memory.

    So I did a canvas where people thumbprint their fingers as the leaves and it was kind of annoying in the sense that people just printed on blank space rather than on the branch ugh aha but it's all such unique ideas.

    We're doing a map guest book because both of us love traveling! If you're wanting something to display in your home, the second inspiration photo you posted would be great! If you're wanting something you'll use, Jenga blocks sound awesome
