    I don't have any pictures, but we're doing advice cards and my mom is sewing us a "guest book quilt" that people will sign.

    I am doing wooden cutouts that my guest will sign and then putting them in a shadow box frame. I will try to upload a picture. It will be similar but not quit the same.

    I am going to have my guest sign the wooden cutouts and put them in a vase or some kind of holder. Then on my honeymoon I will put them in the shadow box with larger cutouts with our names and date. The kits are selling for well over a hundred dollars. I went to Hobby Lobby and priced everything for mine to be around sixty bucks but that is me getting the shadow box at 50% off too.

    We're having our guests sign a wooden letter M that we can hang on our M wall in our foyer after the wedding.

    Ours came from WeddingTreeGuestbook on Etsy. We didn't want the mess of an actual thumbprint tree, so guests just signed their names on the leaves. We customized the colors and font.

    Link to the Etsy listing: http://ow.ly/zNwBN

    This is our actual guestbook:

    I don't have any pictures, but we're going to use a big personalized calendar. Smiley smile I'll have the guests write their names on their birthdays and anniversaries so we'll have it. It's New Year's Day, so I think it's precious. Smiley winking

    I don't have a picture because my sister is still making it. She is hand turning a wooden baseball bat with our name burned into the wood that we will have all of our guests sign. It will then hang in our home. I'm super stoked about this because we are such big baseball geeks!

    We bought a bench yesterday that we will have people sign at the wedding. At the engagement party we are going to have people write best wishes on quilt pieces.

    We're having our bridal party and parents/godparents use the red fingerprints to make the apples, and our guests will have their choice of various green ink.

    Edited, because we're neither Virginia & David and not married for a year... This is from the company Etsy page

    This is ours. Guests will sign it with regular black sharpies. Afterward it'll be sprayed over with a clear coat of poly paint to protect it and we'll hang it on our wall.

    (The heart is over Austin, where we are getting married.)

    Don't have a photo, but we are doing a puzzle that people can write messages on. We'll then frame it in a shadow-box.

    Ooh, Jenna...nice! I'm in Austin, too.

    We got one from Etsy like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124907471/custom-wedding-guest-book-ideas-disney?ref=related-5

    The house from "UP" with balloons for the guests to sign (same concept at Madeline's above), for a little Disney touch. Will put it on a table with photos from our "adventures."

    My avatar is a photo of our guest book. It's a painting done by a friend of FH. Guests will have white and black paint pens they can sign with. We'll then hang it in our home.
