However, a few months before the wedding, we cut this item from our budget because a) we wanted to maximize the amount of money we were putting toward the food and, more significantly, b) we also went to a wedding that had one of these tables. Although the pages looked awesome (they went all out with stickers and even a photo booth), the message were pretty mediocre. Things like "We're wishing you a very happy marriage!" and "We wish you many happy years to come!" come to mind.
Luckily, my best friend, Andy, was busy creating his own scrapbook behind our backs. He e-mailed all of our friends and family members and asked them to say nice things about Matt and me. Andy then compiled them into a book that he self-published on Lulu. Our guests wrote some of the most heart-felt and tear-inducing things. I think it's because they were in their own homes, and they had some time to pull their thoughts together. He presented us with this gift the night before our wedding.
During the reception, we set the book on a small table near the TV where our wedding DVD played. I was surprised by the sheer number of people who picked up the book, sat down on the couch, and read it from cover to cover. It helped contribute to the immense sense of community and connection that characterized our wedding.
I would definitely encourage you to make your own book. It provides such amazing insight into the way all the important people in your life feel about you and why they want to be near you on your wedding day.
