Thank you, sincerely, for inviting us to share your special day with you. Your wedding is beautiful, and you look like a princess. If, though, you require us to sign one more standard wedding guest book, we may implode. We can’t write small enough to say what we want to say without taking up an inappropriate amount of space, it’s awkward to know everyone else is reading our heartfelt messages as they brainstorm their own, and we know that after the big day, that baby is going into the corner of your closet to gather dust. Instead, we implore you to come up with an alternative guest book idea that’s fun, original, and hey! maybe even useful post wedding. The 15 brilliant wedding guest book ideas below are just a few that we’d love to sign and that would make our wedding-going experience more positive. Please consider us in your wedding guest book choosing and we’ll reflect the appreciation in your anniversary gifts.
Go all The Notebook on your guests with a heartwarming love letters station. This idea is perfect for a vintage wedding as friends and family can write their well wishes on a typewriter. Open one a day until you run out.
For World Travelers
This incredible map guestbook will show how far love stretches, truly making you two feel on top of the world. You’re going to have to strategize, though, if you want to get this home in one piece. A cork board map might be a better idea.
Have each guest sign a cork that you can then display like so:
Make sure you know what you want to make ahead of time so you can direct your guests where on the cork they should sign.
Let them leave a note on a square of your love quilt that will be used daily.
For Time Travelers
Well, technically everyone is constantly traveling to the future, but it’s still cool to call yourselves time travelers. Open this on your first anniversary to relive your big day.
For the Forgetful
Let them do the work for you! Never forget a birthday again…
For Quirky Couples
Have your guests literally leave their mark with this adorable fingerprint guestbook. Ask them to sign their well wishes next to their balloon.
These wishsticks will bring good luck into your new home. Display them somewhere special, and grab them for a pick-me-up.
For the Timeless Couple
Put your entire life story on one board with a summation of your most important relationships. Ask guest to write their names and a short message on a flag and then stick it on the year you met.
Spend quality time with your new spouse putting together a puzzle. Read each piece before putting it in place.
For Rustic Romancers
An interactive guestbook will have guests smiling before the event even begins. This fun, rugged idea can be displayed in your new home.
Be reminded of your favorite people daily as you dine. This is ridiculously easy to make and extremely useful.
Ensure an amazing first year (and forever after that) with date ideas to keep things fun. When you’re stumped on a Friday night, dig into your jar for a great idea, a laugh, and a smile.
Have a bottle of wine and notes to read for each anniversary.
Now PLEASE stop with those books.
