Alternative guest book

Will you girls be doing a traditional guest book or change it up to something different? I'm highly considering doing this as it is something we can look at everyday and doesn't just collect dust.

    Im thinking of a fake tree hung with crystals and getting all the guests to write a wish for us as a couple to tie to the tree. A wishing tree of sorts.

    That is a great idea! Or vice versa if you can't read the handwriting then you can look at the pic and know who it was!

    I like this idea too! Just a word of advice - my brother did this at his wedding and a lot of people didn't get around to taking their pictures until after dinner and by then it was dark (it was an outdoor venue/tent) and most of their pictures did not turn out because the lighting was too dim. If you have an indoor venue with some well lit areas, then should be no problem!

    HAHA, I think we've all done that.

    Ya FH is the only one that talks to his mom and her side of the family so it is hard to get together with them, so I've never met most of them. But FFIL (how is paying for a solid portion of the wedding) has MANY long time friends/neighbors he wanted to invite, I've met most of them, but only once or so. I just avoid using names, like FH's one aunt... I met her once and couldn't pick her out of a crowd and don't remember her name, so I refer to her as "Vegan Aunt" (for the obvious reason... that she is vegan LOL)

    ROFL, so I totally look like one of those crazy ppl at work laughing to myself.. I know how you feel tho, FH has a huge family, I still don't even know who is who with his family. He has like 11 uncles and aunts just on his dads side and then theres all their kids etc. I just smile and nod half the time haha

    It mainly came to be because I SUCK at names and since 80% of the guest list are FH's side that I've never met/only met once, I knew I would forever be like.. Jennifer... what one was Jennifer again? So I wanted something that captured how everyone looked that night!!

    I love alternatives! We`re doing a polaroid one, guests take a photo, write a note, swap it with their escort card.

    Guestbook

    Then we`re going to take the photos and make a collage
