Wedding Guest Book: The Art of Creating an Original Guest Book. Get inspired by Unique New Ways to Remember the People who Shared your Special Day with You
A wedding guest book contains messages to the bride and groom from family and friends, and is one of the most beautiful memories of a wedding. With so many original alternatives, the guest book is everything but boring! Given2 allows you to create a wedding website with a section dedicated to the guest book. Perhaps you’re wondering, what if I want a hard copy of my guest book? Absolutely, there are so many ideas for that I’d like to explore with you… let’s make your wedding guest book fun and original! Let’s get stated!
Classic Guest Book
To make a unique classic wedding guest book, you can personalize it with small envelopes. Your guests put messages in the envelope only the bride and groom can read!
Beach Inspired Guest Book
If your wedding theme is sea inspired, how about turning your wedding guest book into a “Message in a bottle”? Your guests will write notes on parchment paper and put it in the bottle. Another original idea is to write wishes on sea pebbles or shells. After the wedding, you could keep the pebbles and shells in a bowl in your living room.
Photo Guest Book
A guest book made with your engagement photos could be a brilliant idea. Make it more unique by writing down questions about your future life, such as: “Where do you see ourselves in ten years?”, or “What name should we choose for our children?”
Creative Guest Book
Do you want to impress your guests? Try with these unique options:
- A wedding guest book made out of “hanging messages and wishes”? You could use colorful pins, personalize the messages with flowers or paper hearts, etc…
- Large monogram letters signed by the guests. The letters are ideal as home decor, and can be hung on the wall to admire every day.
Puzzle Guest Book
A puzzle guest book has pieces individually signed by your guests, and can be put together to create a whole.
Guest Book for Travel Lovers
Traveling is a popular theme for a fun wedding. Let’s take a look at a travel-inspired wedding guest book:
1. The Globes
Your guests will autograph colorful globes, which will become nice decorations for your home.
2. The World Map
Do you have guests from all around the world? Or just fancy traveling all over the place? A world map is the perfect wedding guest book for you.
Music Inspired Guest Book
Find a better use for your old vinyls and use them as pages for your guestbook. Guests can sign with a variety of colors, giving the signed vinyls looks ranging from vintage to modern. The “guitar guest book” is yet another fun possibility (ever thought it would be possible to “play” your guest book?!)
Where to Place the Guest Book
Place the guest book on a table near your reception entrance so the guests can find it easily. So folks, what’s your favorite wedding guest book? If you let me know, I’ll be happy to cover more ideas in a future installment!
