One of those things is a Guestbook. I hadn't even thought about it until my hairdresser asked what sort I was having, I must have given her a deer in headlights look, as she ran out the back and bought one out she'd just bought for her wedding in a few weeks.
While hers was lovely, ivory material cover, with a ribbon and blingy catchment thingo on it, it's not really us.
So I went Googling, good god why oh why did I put 'wedding guestbook' into Google! The options are endless!

So I trawled Google into the wee hours for quite a few nights, yes Boss if you're reading this, that's why I had big bags under my eyes, well part of the reason!
We had thought maybe a photo board which people could sign, but then thought what would we do with it after the wedding, put it on a wall? Nope most likely not, it would probably end up in the back of a cupboard, or under a bed or similar.
And then I stumbled upon Guestbookstore.com, definitely not the most cost effective option, but I thought we have cut costs/corners in so many places, why not spend a bit more than we were expecting on something that will be a keepsake for our special day.
We wanted something where our guests could leave comments/notes for us, not just a 'sign here' type thing.
On Guestbookstore, you select what style of book you want, in our case the 'One-Of-A-Kind Wedding Guestbook' then you select your cover style, we went with Asian Bloom:

We chose to have a title page, with our names & the date of our wedding.
Next choice is 'Wedding Memories Page Design' or 'Wedding Predictions Page Design', we went with Memories:
