Winter Wedding Ideas: Seasonal-Inspired Guest Books

Wedding Style & Decor

If you're having a winter wedding, skip the boring, basic guest book — these creative, seasonal-inspired ideas will have your guests clamoring to sign in.

Vintage Skis (above): This couple — both avid skiers — asked guests to sign their names on a pair of vintage wooden skis that they later hung in their home after the wedding.

Snowboard: Or, if snowboarding is your winter sport, display a snowboard at the entrance for guests to sign instead of a traditional guest book.

Cut Logs: For a more rustic touch, display several cut log slabs for guest to sign their names and well wishes.

Quilt (Pre-Made): At this wedding, guests wrote advice and sweet messages on a large quilt sewn by one of the bridesmaids for the bride and groom to use during their first winter together as a married couple.

Quilt (Swatches): Another idea is to have guests sign pre-cut fabric swatches, which can be sewn into a quilt after the wedding.

Poster: Invite guests to sign a large poster depicting a frosty winter scene; then, you can frame and hang in your living room after the wedding.
