Beautiful Alternatives to a Wedding Guest Book
Changing up the wedding guest book is excellent if you’re looking for small ways to break tradition on your celebratory day. There are plenty of options to try, but we’ve gathered some of the most beautiful alternatives to a wedding guest book that hopefully you’ll love.
Do you and your partner enjoy hosting game nights? If you said yes, purchase one or a couple of sets of Jenga, depending on how many people will attend the wedding, and have each guest sign a piece of the game. Now every time you play, you’ll be able to remember the best day of your lives fondly! It’s such a unique idea.
This idea is such a fun one! Have a table set up with a polaroid camera and props and ask each guest to snap a photo of themselves. Hang string with tiny clothespins where guests can hang the pictures and attach a small message for you. You could also have a photo album and ask people to glue the photo down and write a few kind words with a signature. Either idea is a beautiful memento for the joyous day.
Ensure the camera has enough film in it to capture all guests. Ensure you have some backup film just in case.
Message in a Container
Pick a large container, a jug, a wooden box, or a fishbowl that adheres to your wedding aesthetic and leave pieces of paper for guests to leave a message or words of wisdom for you to read in the years to come. This idea gives people the freedom to say what they’d like from the heart.
There are many benefits of laser cutting and engraving services that you can take advantage of. Have the container engraved with your names, initials, wedding date, or anything special to give the vessel extra meaning.
Globe or Map
Do you and your partner love to travel? Then listen up because this guestbook idea is the one for you! Purchase a large globe or map and have guests sign a piece of paper and pin their signature to their favorite destination. You’re creating a travel bucket list without doing any work! Ask guests to leave you some “worldly advice” while they’re at the table.
There aren’t any rules when it comes to the wedding guest book. If you have an idea you’re dying to use, run with it. If not, feel free to use any of these beautiful alternatives to a wedding guest book on your special day.
