20 brilliant wedding guestbook ideas we bet you hadn't considered

20 brilliant wedding guestbook ideas we bet you hadn't considered


Written by Katie Byrne


Swerve that traditional paper book and pick one of these creative ideas for your guests to sign instead!  

 

Let's start with one of the most popular alternatives...

The thumbprint tree! An instant piece of art for your home, it's a low-effort idea that your guests will love. (Just make sure you have tissues on-hand so they can wipe their inky fingers!)

This is a gorgeous idea for a craft-centred wedding.

Fill an album with envelopes and ask guests to leave notes inside.

We LOVE this idea - a time capsule!

Ask guests to fill a jar with tips, advice and ideas for your married life ahead, for you to read on your anniversaries.

This is a great idea if you're the owners of a beautiful garden...

...Ask your guests to sign a chair or bench. Varnish it before putting it outdoors! 

Planning a festive celebration?

Ask your guests to sign baubles which you can then hang from your Christmas tree!

Another brilliant idea...

All hail the Birthday Guestbook

This will make remembering your nearest and dearest's birthdays even easier - and give you a chance to revisit their messages to you every year. Sweet!

Source a vintage typewriter... 

And ask your guests to type you a letter the old-fashioned way - make sure you have a box for completed letters to be deposited into.

Finally! This is a messy - but wonderful - idea.

Position paint-filled balloon in front of a blank canvas and ask guests to pop them. You'll be left with an instant work of art - just make sure you don't go near it in your wedding dress...
