Your wedding is an event you have planned carefully, which you will never want to forget. Moreover, you would like to have a memory from all your guests who wished you well on your wedding day. And for that there are wedding guest books you could use. However, you do not want the classic wedding guest book at your wedding.
So, one of the many alternative ideas for you to have at your wedding would be to have some wedding wishes notes in lieu of guest book. And when I say notes I really mean notes, not pages, which means you can give your guests smaller pieces of paper in any shape you want.
The simplest idea for you to use the wedding wishes notes in lieu of guest book is to have colored rectangular or square pieces of paper to hand to your guests. I would choose something a little bit harder than paper, maybe some cardboard, as it is easier to use. Give your guests colored pens to write their thoughts and wishes and ask them to put them in little envelops or in different other containers.
Before talking about containers, I would still stick to the shape of the notes. I said that square and rectangular are the simplest. But you can choose any other form you would like, from simple oval wavy shapes to hearts, birds or butterflies; you could choose any shape you find fit for your wedding.
As for the containers for your wedding wishes notes in lieu of guest book, they can be glasses of different sizes and shapes that you could use as decorations in your house. They can be glass bowls, nicely decorated or carved keepsake or jewelry boxes; you can have small envelops which you will stick in a guestbook. But you can always have some nice cherry branches in a glass or vase on which guests will tie the notes with ribbons.
An idea I saw and looked great was the one when the wishing tree was filled with nests and the notes were written on birds which were put in those nests. The idea is that you can be creative with these wedding wishes notes in lieu of guest book as long as you do it with pleasure and as long as it fits your likes.
