Guestbook

Has anyone foregone the guestbook?  I am contemplating it.

We are having a wood slice that people can sign, it was an impulse buy, if I remember to take it with us we'll use it otherwise I'm not too bothered

i havent seen anything that i am sold on yet.  i do like the calendar where you sign your name on ur birthday (good way for me to be able to send cards out), or have polaroids taken of guests for an album (bc who doesnt want to laugh at uncle tony 20 yrs from now when he used to have hair... jk no uncle tonys). i havent talked to fi about it yet... but nothing has grabbed me so far.

We did a fingerprint tree and we love the finished product, we are framing it for the family room as a centerpiece :)

I would have loved a fingerprint tree, or an 'Up' ballon picture, but we only have 26 guests so both would be pretty bare!!

FSIL has bought a black dry-wipe board and colored pens and people will sign it, then have their picture taken with it, and she's going to make a photo book with it - a guest book and photo booth in one I guess!

Have you looked on Pinterest for ideas?

Me too!
It's my sister & BIL's 25th anniversary at the end of July so I'm trying to find some gift inspiration. They have just had a putting green installed in their back yard (!!!!!) so I'm thinking of something golf related but I can't decide and Pinterest has so many things that I keep getting sidetracked!

I'm new to PW so, I don't know if giving names of websites is allowed. But we like the idea of the fingerprint tree. I looked through etsy and found the one I want. She can even make smaller canvases for smaller crowds.

@sol8145-I honestly don't think it's a big deal to forego the guest book. If you happen to find an idea you love, then go for it! But if you don't, then I'd say skip it.

Welcome to PW! We had just a regular traditional guestbook! Definitely don't really have too but I love looking back at mine and seeing all the people who came and signed :)

@Julie9, I know what you mean. We had a guestbook, nothing fancy,just a normal notebook. Plus, my colleagues at work individually signed a huge greeting card and addressed it to us. I screamed when I opened it and saw the comments. Ill cherish that greeting card for as long as it lasts.
