6 Unique Guest Book Ideas

#1: Have a traditional guest book

Classic weddings call for classic things like a traditional guest book. Traditional guests books are typically blank books with an engraved cover of the couple’s names. Your customized cover can be designed and customized from most stationary shops. Sometimes simple things are just simply better.

#2: Receive the “book” over a span of time

Your maid of honor is going to be your right hand girl and it’s totally okay to ask her for one last thing after the wedding. Set out postcards for your guests to write messages on and have your maid of honor mail these to you throughout your first year of marriage. You’ll be reminded of that special night for a whole year and still get to relish in those memories.

Special tip: Gift your maid of honor some stamps to help complete this fun task.

#3: Ask for travel recommendations

Not every couple gets to jet off on their honeymoon after their wedding and this can be an awesome advantage! Instead of setting out a traditional guest book for your guests to sign, set a globe out and ask for travel recommendations. The guests can write special messages on places they recommend traveling to. Your guests might just plan you the perfect honeymoon!

#4: Incorporate your hobbies

Your wedding is planned perfectly for you and your guest book should reflect that! Incorporate your hobbies into your book to give it a personal touch. Are you a total music lover? Set up a record player with blank records and have your guests write messages on the records. For an even more special touch, frame the records and hang them around your house to always remember these sweet words.

#5: Take a Polaroid selfie

While all your wedding photos are beautiful, sometimes you just wish you had more pictures of the guests! Have your guests take a selfie with a Polaroid camera and write a caption on the bottom of the picture. This way you can enjoy all the nice messages and have an abundance of wedding selfies. We don’t think you can ever go wrong with a selfie.

#6: Use your wine corks

Who says drinking wine isn’t a hobby? If you love collecting wine corks, we have the perfect alternative guest book for you. Have your guests sign a wine cork and place it in a shadow box. This makes such a unique decoration for your kitchen and will add meaning to your collection. Happy collecting!

#7: Video Messages

Looking for something a little more special than your average photobooth pictures or guest book with written notes? Whether heartfelt or hilarious, the professional videographers with ToastBooth will record personal messages from your guests with pro video, audio, and lighting. Your guests will have a blast creating these and you will have messages to cherish forever!
