Unique Guest Book Ideas
Posted: Mar 26, 2010 10:38 PM

Anyone using an unique guest book?
These are the two I'm using. Yes two :)
A Guest Book Box (address cards file)- guest can fill in there info they leave us wedding wishes, advice, etc.
Guest Book Box- The Lovely Box- Modern Guest Book Alternative

and... Postcard Wishes- it'll be so fun to ready these when we get home!
Post Card Wishes - Guest Book Alternative - (pk of 100)
Our colors will be grey and yellow so I will change the colors of these designs. I will be making these (and all the other paper details myself). I have a little shop on etsy http://cutthecakedesigns.etsy.com

We are using a plate... since we will probably only have about 20 people there it will have plenty of room for comments and such but I love the idea of having this and displaying it in my house instead of the guest book which gets lost over time.

Great ideas ladies!

I too did not want the traditional book of just guests' signatures. Seriously, when would you ever want to look through that? Plus, they're usually kind of "poofy" and very bridal looking, not something you can just leave out on your coffee table all the time.

I used shutterfly to create my own guest book and loved it. I filled it with pictures of DH and I, our families, and our bridal party. I also included some wedding pictures of my parents and grandparents. The pictures were on one side of the page with a quote below it and on the other side were lines so the guests could sign. I made a hard cover book and all the pictures were black and white (so it seemed more formal). It's fun because our families and bridal party actually signed on the pages where their pictures were and everyone else signed on pages with pictures of DH and I. I keep it out on a little table along with my bridal shower album and honeymoon album (that I also used shutterfly with). I love it and still look through it from time to time.

We are using a photobook. In it will be colored pictures of all the fall pictures we have taken together through out the years. We love the woods and hiking so it will be very personalize and fun to make! Guests will get the chance to see our fall pictures and write their well wishes and thoughts in the book.

I had my photographer make a book using my engagement pictures, that way people could look through and see the engagement pictures and then also write messages to us as well. It is nice to have e-picts and wedding wishes and notes all in one place. The guests loved it because they were able to see the e-picts! you could also do the same thing with the online books that you make, at the time, I just had my photographer do it and I regret not doing it myself, would have saved a lot!!

I'll be using this idea from http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/goodthings/conversation-starter-guestbook.

Conversation Starter Guestbook

I'm changing it up a little and making it easier by just cutting up scrapbooking paper to use for the card, and handwriting the phrases on the cards (I have nice handwriting). Instead of using a box, I'm using a basket that I'll be decorating with ribbon. I like the idea because it encourages responses other than the generic "Congrats! I'm so happy for you!".

We are having a baseball themed wedding. I am a huge Met fan and my fiance is a LA Dodger fan. our theme is Opening Day. Instead of a "guest book" we ordered a Met jersey and a Dodger jersey with our wedding date and last name on the backs. Guests will "sign" our jeresies offering their well wishes. The jersies will be framed and displayed in our den which coincidentaly is baseball themed too!

Since the decor of our wedding will be centered around cherry blossom branches I'm going to opt for a wishing tree for the visual impact.

I just order from http://www.elegantlyboundbooks.com/ I found them through a yahoo search and I fell in love with her work! Kelly (the women that makes them) is really helpful. I emailed her about 20 times but she always got back to me. I believe she creates these all on her own. Looks amazing what she can do. We are having a peacock themed wedding and I'm having her add peacock feathers to both the guestbook and money box. I didn't get a pen because I found one on etsy.com but she has those too. It is worth checking out for sure!

this is what I fell in love with!

These were something I thought of a couple years ago that someone else did at their wedding they are write on ornaments. Each guest pics a pen and ornament. I chose to do them in the color i was originally going to have blue silver and white. so blue pen for silver and white silver pen for the blue and white for the blues etc. each guest signs their name to the ornaments and there is a spray you can spray on them afterwards so they do not rub off.

This way you can hang them on your Christmas Tree and remember the special day every year.



Sorry ladies not sure why it didnt post the pic correctly it posted fine on Wedding Bells :S

We're getting some of the big cardboard letters they have at Hobby Lobby and Michaels to make our Monogram.
Then we're painting them pink (our colors are red, pink, and black) and having them sign with a permanent marker.
My family will sign on my initial (K), his family will sign on his initial (T), & friends will sign on our last name initial (H).
