"Guest Book" options for our Disney wedding

Now that we're in the home stretch before our wedding, I'm in the process of wrapping up all the little details. I don't really want a traditional guest book but rather something that we can see every day. Here's what I've come up with:

A print called "Happily Ever After" by David Doss. Our families would sign the matting around the picture.

OR

A customized wedding certificate from an Etsy vendor with spaces for our families to sign:

I'm really, really torn! I love stuff about both options - the print is lovely and really captures the (I hope) look and feel of our wedding. The certificate is also gorgeous and would be customized to exactly what we want. Its actually very similar to the style of our invitations. Of course, I'd still have to get it printed and as well as finding a nice frame for it.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions welcome!

Oooh, both are great options! I personally love the style and simplicity of the certificate, especially if it matches your invitations, but if you're going to see it everyday I think it's best to ask yourself which one will look best in your home. I really don't think you can go wrong with either!

That's sort of the problem; I would hang it in our bedroom and both would look great in our bedroom! Ack, one of those "no bad decisions" situations. muchlove

I know, right! Hence my indecision.... laugh If I wanted to get pedantic and nit-picky, the actual section they use is a little more down the walkway toward the Polynesian but that's just being silly. mickey

My concern with the one that is like the invitations is that it will be not be a reminder of the happy wedding day that you're going to have, but rather of the day you were supposed to send out the invitations. Go with Mickey. Mickey is Love. mickey

I like them both, but I love that happily ever after print, I have eyed it up many times. It would be lovely to have a disney picture hanging in your house to remind you of your wedding day Smile

I voted for the "Happily Ever After" print. When I saw the topic, my first thought was to suggest using an autograph book. mickey

Happily Ever After print!

We love David Doss and have 4 of his prints - 2 professionally framed. I love looking at them every single day. I think that would be an awesome reminder. mickey

Another vote for "Happily Ever After". You're going to see it every day, and it would capture the happy feelings and emotion of your wedding.

I voted for the Happily Ever After print, but to throw another suggestion out there...

We went on Shutterfly and made a hardcover book (we waited until we had a coupon for a free book so all we paid for was shipping) of our engagement pictures that we then used for our guest book. We purchased pens specially made for writing on the glossy paper and the guests all loved it and is sitting on our coffee table now. You could either do this exact thing or make a coffee table book of WDW pictures for guests to sign.

This is what we're doing too! My best friend/maid of honor made us a photo book from Shutterfly and it's absolutely beautiful, I can't wait to use it at our wedding!
