Clearly you really love and respect your grandmother to be concerned about how to handle this. Because the book was given to you by your “Granny,” and she has openly said how she is looking forward to seeing it used you should try to figure out a way to use it. Consider using the guest book for the ceremony only and then at the reception have the ceramic platter for guests to sign throughout the function. This way you have validated your grandmother’s wishes and you still will have your beautiful keepsake. In the grand scheme of things having your guests sign two different things it not a big deal; they will think you planned it all along.
