10 creative wedding guest book ideas. I have been on a serious hunt for unique wedding guest books. There is something really beautiful about collecting memories. I was the kid who loved to get her high school yearbook signed. And would read each signature over and over again. That is what I want for our wedding guest book. Something we can read over and over again; remember and smile.
1. Two birds with one stone - This idea is perfect for a couple that has a pond or a rock garden. Get yourself some pretty rocks and have guest sign them. Use the stones as centerpieces and even as table numbers.
2. Power Prints- this is a variation of the fingerprint tree guest book or the wedding balloon guest book and it is super adorable. Little couple finger prints. Cartooning encouraged.
3. Sign a ....chair? Have guests sign something that you'll use: a bench, a chair, a bookcase. Make your guest 'book' momento a permanent part of your home.
4. Good Things come in little packages- I love little bunches of things; little notes, little cards, kind little words. These little cards could be dropped off at each table, signed, and later collected or displayed.
5. Get Puzzled- This idea can be pretty pricey but I love it anyway. Have an engagement picture made into a puzzle and then have guests sign the puzzle pieces.
6. It's a date!- If you are like me and never remember birthdays then this is the guest book for you. Have guests sign a calendar on their birthday. Just think how impressed your guests will be when you never forget again.
7. If I could save time in a capsule- A time capsule wedding guest book. I love this idea but I could never do it. Wait five years? I'm way too curious for that. If I had more patience it would make for a very special anniversary.
8. Poster it!- Have guests sign a big poster board. I like this because you can tie in a favorite, quote, saying, lyric plus lots of space to write lots of sweet nothings.
9. Polaroid camera- There are so many variations of this wedding guest book. But it is no wonder guests can instantly take a picture, get it, and sign it. Mix that with photobooth fun and your wedding guest book becomes a built in party.
10. Coffee talk- coffee table books make great wedding guest books. This is especially cute for a destination wedding. Have guests sign a picturesque hardcover book that describes the culture of where you've chosen to wed.
