Guestbook ideas


GUESTBOOK IDEA #19:

Instead of a traditional guest book, Amanda & Charley had a glass jar and pieces of paper so that all their guests could write us advice/well wishes etc. and put it in the jar. They agreed that every anniversary they would read a few to remember the celebration and who attended.

What a great way to spread out the joy from that day!

GUESTBOOK IDEA #18:

Instead of a traditional guest book give out postcards and asked guests to write messages, draw pictures, anything they like! Everyone then puts them in a wedding postbox, and after the wedding you can put them in a frame and hang it on your wall at home.

GUESTBOOK IDEA #17:

Instead of a guestbook, have your guests write on Jenga pieces. Every time you play Jenga, you’ll be reminded of all the well wishes.

GUESTBOOK IDEA #16:

Have a ‘guest BOX’ instead of a guest book, where guests can record a message on video. The technology is now, and according to experts, handwriting will be phased out within 20 years anyway!

GUESTBOOK IDEA #15:

A collection of small, wooden planks for a guest book that guests signed with Sharpies. The couple then stained it and now have it hanging in their kitchen. Equally it could be used as a table top! Idea seen in Candace & Asher’s super-stylish ‘shabby chic’ Jewish wedding.

GUESTBOOK IDEA #13:

For a guest book on a budget use brightly coloured post-it notes and ask your guests to leave their messages and then compile into your own book after the big day!

GUESTBOOK IDEA #12:

Give the guest book a digital twist and make it part of your wedding day’s entertainment in its own right. This Digital Surface allows guests to scribble, doodle and create their own personal messages of congratulations and be as imaginative as they like. Best of all, guests contributions can be turned into a book after the event and reproduced for family members and in-laws.

GUESTBOOK IDEA #11:

Instead of a formal guestbook have a ‘postcard washing line’. Guests pick a postcard and write their messages to you on the back, before pegging them to the line.

GUESTBOOK IDEA #10:

Have your guests choose a postcard and write a message on the back. Then after your honeymoon display the postcards in an album or frame them on the wall. A lovely idea and keepsake!

GUESTBOOK IDEA #1:

An adorable guestbook idea – glue mini envelopes into the book and let guests write you tiny letters. This would also work well with photo booth pics too.
