We just love how creative couples get for their wedding day. They plan it all to the smallest detail, and what is essentially a big party is an event full of character that represents the bride and groom. One detail that has had a creative make-over in the past few years is the guest book. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a traditional book, in which people can write their well-wishes and everything is contained in one compact space.
However, some couples like to have this token of appreciation on display. Others want to find a practical use to it, so we have collated our favourite, most inspiring guestbook ideas for your eyes only.
- Let’s start with the most traditional of guestbooks. By adding a Polaroid camera, you will capture the mood of the moment.
- This type of illustration is becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason. It’s quick and easy! And kids have a excuse to get their hands dirty.
- We love this fun alternative too! Simply print off a sample and leave a bunch of pens on the table. Let guests choose their “person”, colour them in and sign their name.
- You can buy a bunch of old postcards from a flea market or your local charity shop and ask guests to leave their message in the post box. Or, if you have friends and family who live around the world, ask them to bring a postcode from their hometown and get them to write a message for you on there!
- Similarly, get your hands on a globe and have your guests sign that. It’s a lovely thing to have in the home after the big day, and it might help you decide the destination for your future travels.
- Ask for marriage advice from those who have been loved up for longer. You’ll get serious and fun messages, which makes a nice mix and an interesting read if you decide to showcase them in your home.
- This couple left a dictionary on the table and asked guests to circle the words they associated with them. You could also use it as how they would decide marriage with one word, what NOT to do, etc.
- Another way of showcasing messages in on pebbles, which will then be put in a vase.
- You can ask for a bucket list that will last a lifetime.
- Or ask for messages to read on your first anniversary.
- You could also use booklets as table numbers that will double up as messages to read on certain wedding anniversaries.
- Ask for recommendations and questions on subjects such as pet names, how many children will you have, what car will you drive at the age of 40, what will be your career change, etc.
- Make a puzzle and get guests to either write or sign on each piece. At one point someone will start to assemble the puzzle, encouraging people to write more and more until it is complete.
- And finally, a game of Jenga. This is genius!
