Wedding guest books are often one of the first things that welcome people to your wedding. They can set the tone for the day and give guests a taste of what to expect. We’ve seen some great wedding guest book ideas over the years and we love when couples choose a guest book that truly reflects who they are as a couple. Let’s dive into some creative and meaningful options to consider for your wedding guest book!
One of our favorite wedding guests book ideas is to use a book you already cherish or plan to use regularly. This could be a coffee table book you both enjoy or a cookbook that holds a special place in your hearts. Guests can leave heartfelt messages and well-wishes on its pages, creating a cherished keepsake for you to enjoy for years to come.
Imagine reliving the joy of your wedding day by listening to heartfelt messages from your loved ones. After the Tone is a company that sends you a fun phone that guests use to leave you messages. The messages tend to get better as the night progresses since guests have been enjoying the bar. Listening to the messages is a fun activity to enjoy on a date night when you get back from your honeymoon!
Incorporating art into your guest book is a unique way to showcase your creativity and the talents of your guests. You can have guests contribute to an art piece during the reception such as painting on a canvas or signing their name on a piece of artwork. There are also containers like shadow boxes that you can put signed items into like the National Park Service one below. This not only captures memories but also adds a touch of artistry to your special day.
Picture Guest Books
Instant photos, like Instax or Polaroids, are delightful wedding guest book ideas. Guests can snap pictures, paste them in the book, and write you a heartfelt note alongside. You can also just collect the pictures and put them in a keepsake box. It’s an interactive and fun way to remember all the smiling faces that shared in your joy.
Items You’ll Use
Consider incorporating items that are already a part of your life as your guest book. For example, if you love hosting a party, why not use a “shot ski” that guests can sign? Then every time you use it, you’ll think of your wedding day. Alternatively, think about a quilt, where each person gets a square to write on, or a bench that becomes a cherished part of your home decor.
Your wedding guest book is more than just a book; it’s a treasure chest of memories and well-wishes from your nearest and dearest. These creative ideas will not only make your guest book unique but also provide an opportunity for your guests to be part of your love story in a meaningful way. We hope these wedding guest book ideas have sparked your creativity and excitement for your upcoming wedding. If you have any questions or need more guidance, feel free to reach out!
