Guest Book Alternatives

We've all been there, after a few too many glasses of champagne and feeling a little bit teary after all the lovely speeches, a Guest Book is passed around for you to write in. You write the cheesiest and soppiest thing you can think of. If, like me, you've ever had the misfortune of reading your message again in the cold light of day, a part of you dies inside. So I've decided I want none of this on my (sorry, our) day. But for some reason people are insisting you have some way of 'logging' who has been with you on your special day. I know I don't want the standard 'sign-your-name-on-a-blowup-picture-of-us' (what the hell do you do with it afterwards? Hang it above the fire?) but I've found some really ace alternatives. Have a wee look. And let me know if you have any more.

First up, a wishing tree (I love this and may just steal it!)

Sign and post a post card (great if you're having a travel theme or planning and long honeymoon)

Polaroid Guest Book (this is a winner if you have a traditional mother to keep happy, plus your ushers can go around taking the snaps and ushering people on)

Or how about marital advice? Let's face it, we need all the help we can get.

Hope this gets you thinking!
