Having a guest book for everyone to sign is a traditional part of your big day. It is a lovely way to create a book of memories that you can look back over at any time and remember the magic of the moment. Sadly though, what tends to happen is that this book is placed in a cupboard or drawer where it gathers dust and is rarely looked at. If you want to create something that can take pride of place in your home and serve as a daily reminder, bringing smiles and warm fuzzy feelings while offering a unique take on the guest book idea, here are some alternatives you may want to consider.
Instant Camera/Photo Booth
Photo booths have gained much traction in the wedding world. The equipment, which includes a polaroid camera booth and lots of funny hats, feather boas, wacky glasses and signs, is delivered to the venue, and guests can enjoy snapping creative pictures. One way to create a guest book is to make a coffee table scrapbook of these images or frame them all in a large clip frame. You can even get the guests to design the layout by having the scrapbook on hand and some simple instructions asking them to snap it, stick it and sign it!
Ahead of the big day, commission someone arty to paint a large, bare branch tree onto an A2 or A1 canvas. All you need then are some ink pads in various colours. Ask your guests to take a finger or thumbprint and place it on a branch as if it were a leaf, and once more, get them to sign it, so you know which print belongs to each guest. It is fun and unusual and makes a gorgeous piece of wall art for your home once the big day is over.
This has to be one of our favourites. Jenga is a popular brick stacking game, and these small wooden blocks are perfect for getting the guests to sign. Each block can be signed by an individual, couple or even family group as it has four sides. It is a talking point and will help you immortalise your guests loving thoughts forever. Depending on your personal choices, there are plenty of ways to stack it for display, either as they are or fixed into place in a frame or abstract structure.
A Box of Blessings
Finally, you could choose to create a box of blessings. Small cards are left with a box for guests to leave their blessings and words of wisdom on your big day. There is much scope to make this unique, from the container you choose to the shape of the paper or cards. Some people opt for a traditional message in a bottle rolled scroll; others pick a heart-shaped card. There is no right or wrong here!
Any suggestions we have included can be customised to suit the two of you perfectly and give you a guest book that will bring you joy forever.
