Unique Guest Book Ideas
Updated: Apr 13
Creative ways for guests to leave their mark. Make it personal and you will cherish the memories for a lifetime.
Let's face it, the traditional guest book will more than likely end up in a closet gathering dust. Below are some memorable guest book ideas that you can use in your home for years to come.
1. Musical themed guest books.
If you are music lovers the perfect guest book could include vinyl records, a musical instrument or signed sheet music that can be framed and displayed in your home.
2. Polaroid guest books.
This is the most popular trend in recent years. Provide your guests with all the necessary supplies (Polaroid, pens, glue and a scrapbook) and ask them to take a picture and leave you their well wishes.
3. Furniture guest books.
This is by far my personal favorite. Choose an outdoor chair, porch swing or tabletop, have your guests sign, lacquer after and enjoy years of memories.
4. Wall art guest books.
These can be DIYed to coordinate with your new last name and your home's décor. Provide guests with markers or ink pens of your home's color scheme.
5. Travel themed guest books.
If you have a love of travel collect maps, globes and vintage postcards for your guests to sign.
6. Guest books from personal notes.
These are the perfect guest book for vintage style weddings. Collect journals, notebooks, notecards or have guests type a message that can later be bound.
7. Guest books that double as home décor.
Think Jenga or puzzle pieces for game night, unique wall art such as paddles or surf boards, Christmas ornaments or a quilt for your bed. These are all items that guests can sign and can later be displayed in your home.
Overall, these ideas can serve as a guide to help you create the best wedding memory books. There are many other options! If it can be signed and it works with your wedding theme or home décor, go for it!
