Polaroid Guestbook? Or alternatives

Has anyone had success with a polaroid guest book? I really like the idea of being able to have a picture of the people that attended the wedding rather than simply seeing a signature. I plan to have plenty of photo paper so that guests can take one to put in the book and one to keep if desired. I also plan to have someone from the wedding party constantly attending the "station" so that guests get their picture in the book. We will also have an announcement made to remind guests to get their picture taken. If you were successful, what are some good tips?


What are some alternatives that are similar to this idea that have been successful?


Thanks in advance! Smiley smile

    If you have a good photographer, they will make sure to get a photo of everyone who attended Smiley smile

    My wedding was this past Saturday and we did the Polaroid guest book and it was amazing! We didn't get to look at our book until last night and I absolutely love every picture taken and will for sure cherish my guest book. I 20/10 recommend doing it. My guest loved having a photo or two to take home at the end of the night.

    Same. We had 2 Polaroid Snaps out for people to use and one of my bridesmaids really helped spearhead the photo taking and I absolutely love our guestbook. It's basically exactly what we wanted. There's some really nice photos, some silly photos, some wth photos and I love all of them.

    I think it definitely helps if you have someone guiding people towards it though. I'm not sure how many photos we would have gotten if my bridesmaid hadn't gotten things rolling.

    I went to a wedding last month where they had a photobooth and next to the photobooth was a photobooth guests can stick their photobooth photo in and write a message.

    Same! Having a wedding party member was definitely a life saver! We had two cameras and once pretty much everyone had their pictures made the kids took one of the camers and went to town on taking photos and those are probably some of my favorite.
