We love how friends and family congregate at weddings to celebrate a new couple. And we think each guest should be remembered and appreciated. Wedding Guest Books provide a space for guests to mark their attendance, but they are, well, kind of unimaginative. And, after the wedding, the sweet sentiments recorded in them are usually carefully packed away in a drawer never to be seen again. So we sourced some unusual options for your special day that provide a bit more pizzazz than a plain ole book. These unique wedding guest book ideas are fun for your guests and might actually be displayed and/or used in your home, keeping the love visible for years to come.
Hello Am on Etsy offers really pretty personalized posters for couples wanting a little something different for their wedding guest book.
Big Ole Glass Bottle
Beaucoup has this awesome monogrammed glass bottle which can serve as a neat guest book alternative. This personalized bottle provides a creative way to involve wedding guests in the festivities. Leave out for guests to either sign or to leave a wedding wish. You can use corks, mini scrolls, or torn cardstock as the message medium. And this lovely bottle would look great on a bookshelf or fireplace mantle.
Loobie Design on Etsy offers upcycled, hand painted plastic globes to be used as an alternative to a wedding guestbook. The globe can easily be written on, perfect for your guests to leave messages on your wedding day. Loobie Design can provide a globe in a range of colors, plus names, dates or quotes can be added by request. This conversation piece would add interest to any space from living room to office.
And, resourceful girls can find themselves a vintage globe at a local thrift shop. All you’ll have to do is make a cute sign for your guest book table and put out some sharpies. Guest sign in project done!
Another adorable idea for a guest book is to use a vintage or new dictionary. You’ll simply ask your guests to circle a word inside and sign the page. You will have a useful, practical and wonderful reminder of your special day for years to come. Every time you go to the dictionary to look up a word, you’ll be rewarded with a precious memory from your wedding. Awwwwwww….
Birthday & Anniversary Chart
It is so hard to keep up with birthdays and anniversaries of our loved ones. So, we love this riff on a wedding book. Guests add their birth dates and anniversaries to this giant calendar and you’ll never miss another special day. Buy a bunch of greeting cards at your local Dollar Store so you can be on top of your snailmail game. Use your handy chart and you will have a great way to pay the love forward, Nice.
Beaucoup has a whimsical way for your guests to leave a message for you. Love will take flight at any travel-themed wedding when you incorporate these airplane-themed wishing well notes. Set comes with 25 pieces of paper, each with a blank side for writing and a side marked with pre-scored folding lines to help fashion a paper airplane. Each sheet is designed to be folded and molded into the perfect paper airplane for jotting well wishes off to the happy couple. Your guests will have fun making their airplanes and we can envision lots of test flights livening up your sign in table!
