Polaroid Guestbook

Did I mention this already?


I love love love this idea.  You put a polaroid camera out by the guestbook and tell people to take pictures of themselves, stick it in the book and write a message.  It's somewhat complicated so one person who did it said they had a bridesmaid or someone walking around and assisting the processes during the party (haha).  However, I think it's a fantastic idea!

Of course, it's also kind of expensive to buy the book that is specifically designed for holding polaroids.  Another tactic would be to buy a bunch of scrapbook photo corners (those sticky corners) that are meant to hold photos onto flat paper like in a scrapbook, and people can just stick their pictures on that way... also complicated, though, maybe even moreso.  Like this:


Maybe we could, in advance, put squares on the pages so people just have to slide polaroids in...

Anyway, I would love to figure out how to make this happen.  I think it could be really fun!

maybe you can have bridesmaids/groomsmen take pictures of people as they walk in the door, take their picture and then they sign the book - like what they do when you go on a cruise like the Dandy.

You do know that Polaroid is discontinuing making the Polaroid film?

I did take that into account - haha - they are making enough film to last through 2009! so... it would be an heirloom!

i love heirlooms (perhaps since im getting close to being one myself....) - and i like jm's suggestion - i often dont participate in signing the photoblow-ups, etc that people put out at parties, because i cannot think of anything clever to write - but if someone took my photo and popped it on a page, i think i would be comfortable penning a mazal tov

i think so too (about it being easier with your picture and just saying mazel tov). sometimes i have a really hard time coming up with something, then i write something cheesy, then i can't cross it out and feel stupid, etc. haha...
