Alternative Guest Book Ideas

While we love the inspirational and heartfelt messages a traditional guest book encourages, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a little bit! Why not consider one of these creative ideas for your big day?

Wooden Heart Keepsake Frame
Ask your guests to write a message for you on a wooden heart and place it in the frame. The end result will be something meaningful that can be displayed in your home!

Wishing Stones
Have your guests write well wishes on stones like these. They can be displayed in a vase, basket or another way to fit in with your theme!

Photo Booth
So this one is not an original idea & a lot of couples have photo booths nowadays, but that’s because it’s FUN!
(If you opt for the DIY photo booth, we are obsessed with the custom made backdrops by The Keep Collective, so be sure to check them out!)

Have your guests leave a little message on a Jenga piece that you can revisit on game night!

Of course this is just a sampling of all the great ideas out there, but we have so many more so contact us today! Your guests will sign anything you ask them to so the possibilities really are endless!

If you did something creative with your guest book, we’d love to hear about it!

Happy Planning!
