When I say the words “Guest Book” what do you think of? A boring book with lines for guests to write their name and a short note? Well, I am about to change your thought process by giving you ideas for what I like to call the “New Guest Book” - because nowadays the guest book is meant to be so much more than a boring book that you only open every 10 years. Take a look at some of the fun ideas we have seen at weddings and then open your imagination to come up with something clever for your wedding. Remember, this is probably one of the only times that you will have all of your most favorite people in the same place!
Something Clever to Sign On
Whether it be an oar, a golf flag, a canvas photo, a photo matte, or whatever you can come up with that is meaningful to you, have your guests sign on it so you can keep it forever in your home. Get creative! Did you and your fiance graduate from the same college? Have everyone sign a college flag. Do you love boating? Have everyone sign an oar or a ships wheel. The possibilities are really endless!
A photo booth is a great guest book alternative! Your guests get to take home a photo strip of themselves and you get a copy in a scrapbook where they can sign next to it to keep forever! It is a really fun activity for your guests and a really humorous keepsake for you!
Do you have great photos of you and your fiance from your relationship? Make a photobook online and leave some pages blank for your guests to sign. Or if you have photos of the destination you are getting married - like some fabulous images of Cape Cod - make a photo book out of that and have your guests sign in it. If you don’t have the photos, then buy a Cape Cod photo book and use that for guests to sign.
What ideas have you seen? There are so many new ideas out there, I almost think that we shouldn’t even call it a “guest book” anymore!
Plan. Relax. Enjoy.
