One questions I am always getting asked is what should I do for a wedding guest book. The classic is of course using the guest book that you can purchase at any wedding accessory store. But I like to be a little more creative then that and have the guest book match the theme or be something you can enjoy after the wedding. The problem with a booklet type of a guest book is that it is a book that gets put into a box with all your wedding stuff and is never to be seen again. Wouldn’t it be so lovely to use it as art in your house afterwards? Or enjoy it on anniversaries? Today I am going to share with you a bunch of ideas for your unique wedding guest book.
Guest Book Rustic Window
Such a great way to include your wedding theme in your guest book and of course it can be hung up in your home of a reminder of your special day. This image was found on Style Me Pretty.
Message In a Bottle!
This is a fun one! Have your guests leave you a message in one of the bottles, each labelled with an anniversary. I think what makes this so special is the fact that you will have to wait until each anniversary to open it. Imagine when you hit 15 and you get to look back 15 years at the messages and who they were from. It would be an amazing experience. This image was found on The Knot.
Wedding Guest Book Tree
The perfect artwork wedding guest book. Have a canvas created with enough leaves for your guests to sign. There are plenty of options to create a canvas to fit your style and colours. This image was found on Offbeat Bride.
Personal Guest Book!
Here’s one I love! Instead of having the guest book available at the front have a sheet at each seat with a mixture of markers at the table. This will give guests more time to put in some thought as to what they want to write. Plus each page will be far more personal and enjoyable for you to read. You can purchase your pages at the Guestbook Store.
Wine Bottle Guest Book
Here is a variation of the wine bottle guest book. For this one I would pick your absolute favourite wine! The one you save for special occasions. Select for of them. 1 to celebrate the marriage, a second for your 1 year anniversary, a 3rd for your 5 year anniversary and a 4th for the 10th (The photo above is different for each year but pick what you like). Have a white/silver/gold permanent market available for guests to sign their name on a bottle of their choice. Then when you hit that anniversary open the bottle and enjoy celebrating with a good bottle and your memories. This image was found on the Busy Brides Guide.
Hope you have a lovely day!
