Will you have a guestbook out at your wedding reception for your guests to sign? Or are you skipping this tradition?

    Super excited to not go the traditional route with an actual book.

    Ordered this off Etsy (with my personalizations of course) and couldnt be more excited!

    Yea, but we went with a non-traditional route and had all of our guests sign a decorative canvas for us to hang in our house.

    Definitely a non-traditional one if we do. I'm thinking about doing a canvas wrap of one of our engagement photos and having people sign it... Or I'm going to look into frames with large white matting, and put a wedding photo in it later.

    Thanks! It was expensive but honestly I already look at the thing often, so I’ll definitely be reading through it once people have signed it 😂

    We wanted to do one that wasnt a book. I saw a shadow box full of wooden hearts that people can write on and then you can hang it on the wall. I think its a lovely idea.

    We didn't do one because we were such a small number but I thin they're a great idea!

    YAY! We're doing a Polaroid guestbook so we can look back on photos rather than signatures. So excited!

    We will have a non traditional guestbook. Something we can probably hang in our home with our names and the wedding date for everyone to sign!

    Most likely “nay.” While I understand the appeal, my fiancé and I feel it’s just another thing that’ll collect dust as the years pass.

    Traditional guestbook. I actually really like this idea, and my FSIL has kept hers, it's filled with really sweet messages.

    Not a traditional guestbook. Either a wooden sign with our initials and date, or the first initial of our last name for people to sign.

    Yes! But our Guestbook is a coffee table book about Vancouver Island. We’ll invite guests to sign the pages.

    Yes! We have to travel back with this piece, so we're keeping it simple with a traditional guestbook.

    We're not doing a traditional guest book, but will be having something else for guests to sign. I'm thinking of doing a puzzle or maybe a Jenga tower.

    Skipping but keeping - not a book for guests to sign but something else. Don't know if it will be a picture of the constellation of our wedding night or the more common big piece of wood with our last name initial "D". But something that isn't a book.
