Guest books are a great way for your guests to leave a mark on your wedding day! They can be anything from a traditional signature to a few words of wisdom! Here are just a few creative ways to make your guestbook stand out from the rest
Polaroid cameras have made a come back in the last few years so why not hop on the trend! Leave a camera, tape to add it to the book, and makers for them to write their name and/or a note of well wishes! Some people even incorporation a polaroid seating chart into the mix! Have them grab their picture from the seating chart and leave it in the guestbook!
There are a lot of different versions of a family tree that you can choose from! You can buy a tree painting and use the leaves for each guest to sign. You can also get a canvas, paint a tree and have all your guests use their finger print as their mark! Don’t forget to have the guests sign their name or initial so you can remember who is who!
This is a great idea for anyone who is going with a rustic theme! You can purchase a ‘slice’ of a tree and have it marked with your names and date of your wedding, then let all of your guest sign all around it! You can display this as a center piece on a coffee table (or anything else you’d like) and always have a reminder of all the love and support that surrounds your marriage!
For all the world travelers or couples with a destination wedding, this is a fun option! You can have people sign a globe on one of their favorite vacation spots, where they are from, or just anywhere in general! Another option would be to get a paper map, either in a book form or just by itself and apply the same concept! The maps that are already a book leaves more room to write a message, and a singular paper map can be framed in hung in your home,
For the couples that love a good game night, this is a perfect option for you! There are stores that can take a photo of you and your fiancée and turn it into a puzzle! The back of the puzzle is a perfect space to leave a few words of encouragement, advice, or just their favorite part of the wedding itself! The same concept applies to Jenga except they can write directly on the wooden block! Every time you play those games it’s a cute reminder of your special day!
This one is pretty self explanatory but still a gem! Leave out paper and pens for your guests to write a note, and then roll them up to put in a jar! This would be a fun activity to open up on your first wedding anniversary to relive such a magical day! Don’t forget to get a big enough bottle to fit the amount of guest you have attending the wedding!
This take a little planning ahead of time but still a very cute option! You’ll need to find a simple quilt pattern and figure out how many squares you’ll need for that corresponds to how many quests you’ll have. Find and cut the fabric that is suitable for your guests to write on, and don’t forget a couple fabric pens)! After the wedding you can have it sewn together to make a quilt! You and your guest will be able to enjoy this for decades to come!
You can do this guestbook a couple of ways. One way would be to buy a couple albums that hold meaning between the two of you OR you could a custom label marking your names and date of the wedding to fit the vinyl’s you choose! I would suggest getting metallic markers for your guests to use to make sure what they write will show up!
