Non-Traditional Guest Book

As a continuation of the non-traditional wedding items post from last Thursday… I have to mention our Guest Book.

Rather than having a guest book that was a conglomeration of lines and signatures (that we’d definitely never look through again), we decided to get a coffee table book, something that represented us, and have people sign in the margins… “yearbook” style.

Some people might have been confused by this, but others really got into it!

A few nights ago we sat down to actually look through the book, a book of Texas skies, and we came across THIS:

Rhia Jean, you had us in stitches!  Thanks for making us laugh!

My cousin Madison also signed in the book… nice and BIG on one full page.  Then as we concluded the book we saw:

  1. I can’t wait to see what the non-traditional thank you’s are, especially since I did the non-traditional transfer-via-pay pal-no card option. I’m expecting to see a non-traditional creative on-line thank you… or maybe that was the reply to my e-mail (now I remember… Audrey already did that!) 😉 With all this non-traditional stuff, I’m beginning to think you guys are just weird.

  2. I love it! We had a more traditional guest book, but you’re right, it just sits on our bookcase – this is a much better idea!

    Oh, and to answer your random thoughts-
    1. I think they’re used to my accent now, although there were times during the first year that we had to explain words or things to each other!
    2. Yeah, me too!
    3. As gorgeous as England is, I still think Wales has the most beautiful scenery and farmland in the UK! And you don’t have to be jealous, you & Audrey are welcome anytime! 🙂

  3. No. We are sending regular, traditional thank you cards. But the way we tracked WHO we needed to send cards to was very modern and efficient. 🙂

  4. I like your idea but I don’t know if it can be considered non-traditional these days. Check out this bit about mo wedding receptions from…
    “You should expect to sign a book documenting your appearance at the reception. More and more, these books are scrapbooks. In such case, your signature alone will not do. You have to find something clever, cute, or gushy to say as well. In determining what to write, you may want to take cues from pictures pasted in to the scrapbook. “

  5. I never saw this, and therefore, never signed it. Will you forget I was there?
