Where did everyone get their guestbook??? I see them at chapters all the time, do I buy that or somewhere specific? Does it matter? What did you ladies do? Post pics if you have them please!

    I agree with you. You're right. It's not important to me so I shouldn't overthink it. Thanks

    We will put it on a bookshelf with the rest of our books, lol. Don't over think it! If it isn't important to you, to have something decorative or super unique then just do a basic guestbook. We are doing unique/special details for other things, guestbook wasn't a priority for us.

    Good find! I don't think I would hang up a wooden guest book either. Mine was brand new too from Value Village.

    Oooh I love all the guestbook ideas! You can be so creative with this, and it's a great place to incorporate your wedding theme if you have one! I also got our guestbook from Etsy - one day when we have a house we're planning on hanging it up as decor!

    Love the ideas here. We found a pretty little guestbook (unused) on Varage Sale for $5 Smiley shame Brand new and simple. Realistically we don't want some big wooden thing with illegible signatures on it hanging in our home afterwards. Knowing us, we would never hang it Smiley xd

    Being the ultimate frugal bride, I got mine brand new from Value Village for $3.99. Then I bought some lovely 3D stickers and tastefully applied some to my basic black book with gold lettering spelling "Guests". I have some pearl stickers and strategically stuck them on the front. Inside, I place a poem that I had composed asking my guests to take a page and write us a note that we can read years later. It really turned out nice.

    We are planning to do something similar but I think I am going to DIY it myself since I want it to be the same sort of fish as on our invitations. They are a pretty simple Silhouette so I should be able to do it without too much trouble.

    For ours, we got it at Michaels. We purchased a 16x20 guest photo frame form them to sign.

    You should check out your custom signs on etsy - she makes some creative guest books. I haven't placed my order yet but plan on getting one similar to the picture below... the guests sign the leaves !

    We have a similar idea as to what Chelsea is doing but ours is a picture of us from our engagement shoot with spaces for them to write their names in. It'll act as both a guestbook and art for our home later on. I know you don't have time to do this though. I guess you weren't kidding when you mentioned the guestbook on my post lol. What about just a simple guestbook..literally like a book? lol have the write you something in there. It's not very creative but at the very least it's a guestbook!

    We didn't go with a normal guest book and one of my bridesmaids gifted us our wedding guest board that she ordered online! We got 2 gold markers that is able to write on this certain material and guests can leave a message on there and then we can hang this up in our home!

    We bought a nice thick paper sketch book, some markers and ink pads at Michael's and everyone is going to leave a thumb print and sketch a little person and message.

    I think you can buy them anywhere. It just depends on your preference. We're not doing a traditional guestbook but the ones at Chapters are nice!
    If you're looking for something more wedding like, I've seen them at hallmark and davids bridal.
