    Only if you want one!  We had one at ours, and it was totally unnecessary.  I think we only had two pages of people's signatures that I'm sure we will never look at again.  :)

    Ditch it if you don't want it; you won't miss it!

    Nope!  :)

    My mom wanted us to have one though, so I got one on etsy.  (If she hadn't cared, I totally would've skipped it.  She thought guests would be looking for it and wondering where it was.) Maybe 1/3 of our guests signed it.  It is cute, and it is now on our coffee table.  

    Our book, from etsy seller UberArt, was gorgeous, unique and $25 including custom name plate.  So I like the way it looks on the coffee table.  :)

    Completely unnecessary.  Not that I have anything against them, but all people write is things like Congratulations! and Best wishes!

    We had an album in which people could insert their photo booth photos along with a message on an index card kind of thing... probably 1/4 of the photos were accompanied by a message.

    I didn't have one either...I thought about doing one of those ceramic plate things but in the end I didn't.  My Mom thought I was nuts but went with it, and in the end she didn't even notice it was missing.

    If you want one go for it but if not don't stress. :)

    I didn't think we needed one, but DH wanted it.  A scroll, actually.  It's still sitting in its box, and I bet it will be forever.

    We didn't have one.  We are, however, making a framed collage from all of the cards we received.

    We didn't do one and I don't think it's that necessary. We kept all the cards we got which was more meaningful - some people wrote some great things.

    Re: Guest book necessary?

    I have no idea where my guest book is.  I think if there is some way to make it meaningful to you and DH it's great, but I personally don't think it's necessary.  For example, my friend who is very into theatre had a Broadway show-type poster made of a pic of her and DH from their engagement shoot, and we all signed that.  It's now framed in her house.  Otherwise... I think, like many wedding details, it's the kind of thing that some of your guests may look for, others may never notice whether it's there or not.

    p.s. That's a great idea, dkb!

    We had one, but it was totally unnecessary. People just wrote their names and we had a small wedding, so that took up about a page and a half.

    Skip it, it'll be one less thing to worry about!

    Columbus Day weekend, right Goodness?

    Re: Guest book necessary?

    Thank you so much, everyone!  I really didn't want to have one.  I think it's unecessary, too. 

    Yes, that's right WPP, it Columbus Day weekend.  October 11!!  I can't believe how quickly it's coming up.

    That's awesome! Now is the time to start crossing things off your list. Take three or four things, tell yourself you won't get to them and that's okay, and ditch them. It'll make the next few weeks so much easier!

    What do you have left to do?

    I need to talk to the florist about the bouquets, flowers for the men, and the moms.  Um, then meeting with our other florist (we have two different vendors for flowers) for the centerpieces.  They're going to show us a sample of the centerpiece on October 2, so we can get an idea of what it will look like.

    Let's see.  My dress is still at the seamstress and it should be ready next Friday. 

    I think we will have a lot of things to do the week prior.  Right now, I'm just focusing on eating healthy, exercising, and trying not to stress out.

    Re: Guest book necessary?

    hi, I planned my sister's wedding and she did not do a guest book.  What we did was a signature board.  I went to Michael's and purchased wooden frame, probably 24x30 inches and on sale for $17.  I ordered a custom mat from Etsy for about $12 including shipping (Michael's wanted to charge close to $40!).  I then framed my sister's wedding invitation (a nice photo of the couple would do to!) in the center using glue dots on the back.  At the wedding, people wrote out their best wishes to the couple.  This signature board is now hanging up on their living room wall and it looks gorgeous and is a fun reminder of their special day.
