6 Creative Guest Book Ideas for a Winter Wedding

Wedding Style & Decor

You don't have to go with the same 'ole, same 'ole anymore when it comes to your wedding guest book. Instead, celebrate the season and opt for a creative sign-in idea inspired by the winter weather. From cozy guest-book quilts to a pair of antique skis, these wintry guest-book alternatives are anything but unexpected.

Skis (above): If you and your groom love to hit the slopes every winter, have your guests sign a pair of antique skis displayed at the entrance to your ceremony.

Custom Snowboard: Or, if you guys prefer snowboarding over skiing, why not commission a custom board personalized with your names and wedding date?

Slab of Wood: Inviting guests to sign a slice of wood instead of a traditional guest book is a lovely way to embrace the winter season. (Gotta also love a good pun!)

Paper Snowflakes: At this couple's Chicago wedding, guests were asked to write notes and well wishes for the newlyweds on paper snowflakes.

Quilt: For a cozy alternative to a guest book, pin small squares of fabric to a corkboard and encourage guests to sign them throughout the evening. After the wedding day, have a local seamstress or quilter to fashion the squares into a sentimental quilt.

Ski Resort Poster: If you're hosting your nuptials at your favorites ski resort, commemorate the occasion with a guest-book poster of the location; add a matte and frame and invite guests to sign along the border.
