You know the guest book, right? The satin-covered book with lined pages and a matching pen?
Well, those are out. Nowadays, everyone has fun, nontraditional guest books. And I totally get it. There's nothing fun about a list of names in a fancy book that'll just get tucked in a box somewhere. Pandora's box has been opened, and now we have about a million options.
There's the Polaroid guest book, which would be a lot easier if Polaroid hadn't gone and discontinued their instant film. You can still get instant cameras and film, but they're rather pricey.

We could have everyone sign bottles of wine to be opened on different anniversaries. This could be perfect for us because we're big wine people.
|Martha Stewart Weddings|
Then there's this gorgeous thing from Martha Stewart. I love the bright colors and the idea of opening letters from all your friends and family. Plus, it'd give me an excuse to go to Paper Source.
As a nod to the creation of a new branch of the family tree, a popular choice in indie weddings is the thumbprint wedding tree guest book.
My cousin and her husband did this at their wedding several years ago, and it's hanging in their house. I love that because they see it everyday, unlike a lot of these.
There are so many choices! What's your favorite guest book idea?
