Great idea for your wedding guestbook

Whilst researching warehouse venues tonight, I stumbled upon this gorgeous idea from Couture Events blog. Photography courtesy of Bryan N. Miller Photography, who is now on my ‘to watch’ list!

Much more interesting than a guest book, and a perfect piece of artwork for your home as a constant reminder of your special day and loved ones! Polaroids are always such a hit at weddings, they’re instant, they’re fun and as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! What do you think of this idea for a guestbook? Would you do it at your wedding?
