You can leave the inside pages white for guests to write their names, a special message to the bride and groom, or even sketches. Think about providing different color pens and pencils to make your guestbook a more memorable keepsake. Another option would be to cover each page with nice paper and embellishments, with a designated area for signatures. Then the rest of the book can be scrapped with pictures later.
