Guest books are a wedding staple, but they don’t all look the same. You have probably been to many weddings with the traditional journal guest book for guests to write a note or sign their names. However, today’s couples are moving away from these traditional guest books in favor of more unique or personalized options. We guarantee you haven’t seen all of these creative guest books!
One of our favorite guest book ideas we have seen is this adorable guest book where guests create a bucket list for the bride and groom to complete together in their lifetime! The suggestions are sure to bring a lot of humor and a lot of interesting adventures!
For a bride and groom looking for a very personalized guest book, a dictionary could be the one! Guests are asked to pick a word that they feel fits the couple, describes their personalities, represents how the guest(s) met the couple, or advice for their marriage. They highlight the word and can leave a little note!
While a traditional guest book is fun to flip through, some couples prefer something that can be displayed more permanently. A wooden wall hanging like this is the perfect guest book for a couple who wants to showcase their guest book on their wall.
A more practical or useful guest book might be a blanket or quilt! A quilt could be displayed on a wall or it could be used daily in the winter. Every time the couple curls up in the blanket they will be reminded of the happy memories from their big day!
Another very creative guest book idea is to have your guests create an artistic masterpiece. Each guest uses their thumbprint to help create a unique finger paint canvas that the couple can display on their wall!
So regardless of whether you want to go with the traditional guest book journal or a more creative idea, the important thing is that the guest book fits you as a couple!
