Instead of having an ordinary boring guestbook with signatures that we will never open again, we created a photo guest book. We had special guestbook attendants (2 of my teenage cousins) who took polaroids of each guest as they were entering the reception either individually or in a group. They immediately put the polaroid into the guestbook and the guests then signed below their picture. It was a great way to put names to faces (we had a very large wedding with lots of extended family and friends). We love looking back at it and reading all of the hilarious comments and words of wisdom. What would have been a untouched memorial of our wedding has become a treasured keepsake that we look back on every year on our anniversary!
