Alternative guest book

Ah, the good old wedding guest book. Sometimes a cross between an address book and a school diary. All nicely lined and perfectly spaced. Confining your wit and wisdom, mis-guided humour and well wishes into 1cm spaces.
I'll be the first to admit, sometimes I've just signed my name. Perhaps with an 'all the best' (smiley face).
Saving my heartfelt sentiments for the card.
For this wedding however, we are trying a little harder. Each table has their own envelope, with individual cards inside. Whilst they relax, have a glass of vino and enjoy their entree, guests are encouraged to leave a little love note for the bride and groom. Anything goes, poetry, sketches, words of wisdom or they can even unleash their inner Matt Preston and play food critic. Whatever. The page is blank.
No lines.

I'll let you know how it goes!
