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. Captured by Silvana Di Franco Photography
#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! Captured by Aubrey Joy Photography
#3. Fill in the Blank Pages. We la-la-love this idea. Have your guests complete this fun wedding mad libs. Captured by
#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. Captured by by Ashley Rose Photography
#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! Captured by Katherine O’Brien.
#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. Captured by Sasha Felix Photography
#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! Captured by Gracie Blue Photography
