You are going to be surrounded by family and friends on your big day and even though your event will only last a few hours, the memories will live on for a lifetime. And obviously you’ll want to remember everyone who shared that special day with you. You can go the traditional route and have a good ol’ guest book for people to sign or get inspired by these fun and unique wedding guest book ideas!
Jenga Guest Book
What if your guest book could double as a game? This is a fun and inexpensive way to collect your guests’ signatures and even heartfelt messages. Instead of getting a fancy big book that you might not open again, opt for something like this that you will see and use more frequently.
Time Capsule Guest Book
Turn your guest book into your own anniversary gift with this cute time capsule idea. Ask your guests to write you wishes that you will only open on your anniversary and get excited to relive your day then! You can keep the notes on a jar, box or play off the theme “message in a bottle”.
Calendar Guest Book
Another practical and budget friendly idea is to use a calendar as your guest book and ask your guests to sign on their birthday. It’s a fun way to remember who came to your wedding day and at the same time to remind you to send out birthday wishes!
Online Guest Book
If you’re either a tech-savvy bride or simply don’t want to decorate another table at your event, you can turn social media into your own online guest book! Create a unique hashtag for your event and choose your go-to social media platform to receive messages from your guests. Use Twitter for short wishes or promote Instagram and ask them to take a picture of themselves at your wedding and write a message for you.
Tip Jar Guest Book
It’s your wedding day which somehow automatically makes everyone else experts on marriage and pro tip givers. Make the best out of those advices and save all that wisdom in a cute “Tip Jar” for you and your sweetheart to open after your honeymoon.
When choosing how you’re going to keep a record of who came to your wedding, consider your venue, your theme and the feel of your event so your guest book doesn’t feel out of place!
