Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding Guest Book

By  | 

The Wedding Guest Book is a key part of a wedding, it acts as a keepsake for the bride and groom allowing them to cherish the memories of their special day. However, nomatter how nice the messages in the book, or how earnest the well wishes, we often find that the poor guestbook, sits on a shelf gathering dust.

Here are some of our alternatives to a wedding guest book that will keep things interesting, as well as allow your messages to the happy couple to be seen long after the big day is over.

Message in a bottle – This is a lovely idea, on their first wedding anniversary, your favourite couple will have the opportunity to read over your messages and reflect on their first year of marriage.

Not to mention, it looks adorable.

Photoboard – A photoboard helps to remember the moments and the faces at the wedding, bringing the day back to life.

You can also write lovely messages to the bride and groom on the backs of the polaroids.

As well as looking lovely on the day, the photos can be stored in an album or framed for display in the couples home for years to come.

Jenga Pieces – For the couple who loves boardgames, this is perfect. It’s something fun and a little bit different.

 

These little wooden blocks will bear their messages of love forever, and can be made into a beautiful sculpture when all the festivities have died down.

The records can be framed and displayed at home later, and will fit in perfectly with thir musical lifestyle.

Tree of Love – This tree of love, will again make a great piece for display for years to come. Guests can write messages, but the lack of space will keep them short & sweet.
