A wedding guest book can be a meaningful memento. Traditionally, couples have a sign-in station where guests can write their names and a few well wishes to the newlyweds. But after the wedding, those guest books often get tucked away on a bookshelf or stashed in a drawer, neither of which is an ideal way to remember your wedding day.
These days, many couples are using their guest book as an opportunity to personalize their wedding, opting for an idea that will later double as home decor. One of our favorite takes on this trend? Maps! Perhaps you and your groom are world travelers—so display an oversize world map at the wedding and invite guests to sign the mat or margins. Or perhaps you are hosting a destination wedding. Source a vintage globe and ask guests to sign their names next to the country or state they live in or where they met you.
