We’ve rounded up some more creative guest books that would be a little more interesting to read through later than your standard guestbook. If you’ve ever read through someone’s wedding guest book, you’ll notice that most of the entries are pretty repetitive: “Congrats, we’re so happy for you!” Add a bit of fun to your wedding day by coming up with a unique idea for a guestbook. Here’s a roundup of our favorite ideas:
Creative Guest Books
#1. Wishing Tree. Put beautiful branches such as cherry blossom, manzanita, or magnolia branches in a pot. Make cards with ribbons attached and ask guests to write their well wishes or advice and hang the cards on the branches. You can buy a Manzanita Tree here.
#2. Postcards/Mailbox. Provide postcards of the city or state where your wedding is held. Ask guests to sign the backs, then slip them into a mailbox. Perfect for a travel-themed wedding!
#3. Fill in the Blank Pages. We la-la-love this idea. Have your guests complete this fun wedding mad libs. Grab you own Wedding Mad Libs here.
#4. Fingerprints Tree. This is such a sweet and unique idea! Draw a tree with lots of empty branches on a poster, then put up a sign asking guests to “leaf” a fingerprint and sign their name. Buy your very own Finger Print Guestbook Tree here!
#5. Typewriter. It’s not a new idea anymore, but we still love vintage typewriters as guestbooks. Provide some direction, like asking guests to share some words of wisdom, and you’ll get more interesting responses.
#6. Sign the Poster. Get a great poster, that means something to the both of you and has a large border edge. Leave a sign instructing guests to write a message . It will make a great keep sake for years to come! Or check out this personalized custom made poster here!
#7. Polaroid Guestbook. Another spin-off of the photobooth guestbook is to have guests take Polaroids of themselves, mount them in a book, and sign next to their photo.
#8. Map Guestbook. Write instructions on a chalk board asking guests to “Send you Across the World” by writing their names and their most favorite destination is in the world is–what a fun idea!
