I so love this idea for an alternative to a guestbook at a wedding! The guests stamp their fingerprints as the leaves on the tree, then sign their names next to their respective prints! I think it would make for a fun activity at a wedding, plus the end result looks pretty elegant! It’s something I would be happy to hang on my wall, even. Check out this version Corinne from August and After used for her wedding:

That second picture appears to have been the wedding tree that started all the uproar around the blogosphere (of the “I want! I want!” variety, of course). So major kudos to Cassie for making it! Evidently these things are so popular that someone on Etsy is even selling them, ink pads and all! I think I’ll probably opt to make my own, though.
Cute note about Evan and Corinne’s wedding tree: “Everyone walked around the rest of the night with green thumbs. That’s a good thing, right?”
… or if you’re not into that, having some moist towelettes on hand would surely rectify the inky situation for your guests!
