Have you ever wondered what happens to the sign-in book after the wedding? The couple, most likely the bride, spends a pretty penny on a beautifully decorated notebook for guests to leave their name and address behind. If the guest received an invitation, wouldn't the address already be on file? Once the thank you cards are put in the mail, the sign-in book finds it's way into a keepsake box, never to be touched again. As expensive as some of these books can be, it would be nice to put the book on display…or skip the tradition all together.
Brides have become extremely creative over the years and found fun ways to capture the names of the people who served as witnesses on their wedding day. The alternatives to the sign-in book can get pricey, but when the couple returns from their honeymoon they have an immediate reminder of the loved ones who shared words of wisdom or something artistic to put on display in their home.
The fingerprint sign-in boards are beautiful and can be done in a variety of ways. Your guests fingerprints can be balloons, birds on a limbs, or leaves on a tree. There are so many ways a couple can get get creative with this board…as well as putting it on display in their home.
Stones and corks give guests an opportunity to leave their name along with a special note to the couple.
