Wedding Guest Book Ideas that Are Out of this World!

Wedding Guest Book Ideas that Are Out of this World!

A wedding guest book in white satin, trimmed in silver?  No?  Then take a look at our suggestions and enjoy choosing something different. You want your guest book to reflect your wedding theme, but more importantly your personality!

A photo guest book is an ideal keepsake to treasure from your wedding.  You won’t forget the people sharing your big day if each snaps a Polaroid picture, affixes it in the guest book and writes a note beside their smiling image!

Planning a beach wedding?  The Starfish Wedding Guest Book is perfect.   A golden starfish nestled in white sand adorns each card along with 4 word phrases; “You know you’re in love when…”, “We wish you…”, “Our advise for you…”, and “All you need is…”. The back is blank for your guests to write a personal note.

Instead of having guests sign a book, have them sign something related to the theme of the wedding.  A creative idea for a beach wedding is a pair of oars that can later be displayed on the wall.

A customized graphic print with the couple’s first names and the date of the ceremony is an interesting change from the traditional guest book.  After the wedding, your guests will enjoy seeing their notes to the bride and groom framed and displayed on your wall.

Try vintage travel postcards as an alternative to the guest book.  These notes can be read at your leisure and placed in an album or framed as artwork.

What fun is this guest book alternative?! The Wine Bottle Guest Book Kit offers you a unique way to remember your guests and relive your wedding day.  The kit consists of waterproof personalized labels (Names, Anniversary dates, Wedding colors, and Choice from a selection of graphics) designed to adhere to any wine bottle.  On anniversaries, you can enjoy your favorite wine while reading your guests’ good wishes.

Looking for something really different? Something rustic, perhaps?  Why not have your guests drop their well wishes into the The Wishing Well, a darling wooden basket with a twig handle and a tiny bucket.

Thumbprint tree guest books are trending now. The print is personalized with the names of the bride and groom and date of the wedding.  The fun begins with only branches. The leaves are each guest’s thumbprint. That guest then signs his or her name by their print.  This novel and attractive way to remember your wedding isn’t limited to trees.  Would a peacock or balloons enhance your theme?

A custom card box is a lovely way to collect both names and addresses for your thank you notes and personal greetings from your guests.

Get a kick out of reading your guests’ Mad Libs!  They’ll have bunches of fun completing these phrasal templates, for example, Advice for the Happy Couple.  They do double duty as an icebreaker for your guests as well.

Or create your own custom puzzle with a photo of the bride and groom on one side and the back blank for guests to write messages.  After the wedding, settle down together with a bottle of wine and a warm fire to read your loved ones’ messages.

Decorate your garden and celebrate your wedding day at the same time.  Have each guest write his or her message on a river rock!  Spraying the rocks with acrylic gloss after the wedding will preserve these keepsakes.

Planning a wedding can be stressful. Choosing your guest book should be fun. We hope that these creative options help you with that decision.
