    We just ordered a canvas (20x30) with one of our engagement pictures that the guests will sign. We will hang it up in the guest bedroom afterwards Smiley smile

    We keep changing our minds, but right now we are doing the one below. We live in Portland, OR so the rain is fitting. Etsy has tons of ideas and you could probably make your own version of something on there.

    FH and I fell in love with the idea of having out last name initial out of wood. It will be about 24 inches tall and 36 inches wide and it will be the center of our gallery wall in our home! Here's the link! They have a lot of different fonts and sizes.

    Were doing a shadow box frame. Our guest will sign hearts and drop them down the top of the frame. Then after the wedding I'm going to hot glue the hearts in place so I can hang it up. Then we are also thinking about having a book with little envelopes attached to the page and have guest sign papers and slip it in the envelopes

    I haven't decided 100%, but I'm thinking of having everyone sign a vintage window or bench. Something we can really display in our home.

    I made a cute calendar on shutterfly with our engagement photos and I will make a little sign to put next to it asking guests to sign on their birthday and leave a little note of advice for our first year of marriage. The calendar starts July 2014 and ends June 2015 (our first anniversary!).

    I ended up finding a coupon for a free calendar for shutterfly and only paid shipping. This was two days ago so the code is probably still good. *shrug*

    We kept changing our minds. we wanted a picture of us and people could sign the mat.

    BUT....we have yet to take engagement pictures and since im about 40 days out i doubt we will.

    we decided to do that idea but enlarged our invitation.

    it isnt ideal....but we can swap out the invitation for a wedding picture when we are done.

    i wanted something that i can hang in our new place. Smiley smile
