We love a good multitasker around here. You know, like wedding signs that act like drink dispensers (read our post on unique wedding signs for that one, you’ll love it!)— or for this particular post, puzzle guest books!
At this point, you may be thinking to yourself, “I know what a puzzle is, and I know what a wedding guest book is, but how do they work together?” Or you may not be thinking that at all because you figured it out. Either way, allow us to explain.
A puzzle guest book is a jigsaw puzzle that you put in front of your ceremony with an invitation to sign a piece. Each guest signs a piece to add to the puzzle, et voila, the result is a gorgeous keepsake you’ll get compliments about forever!
So that answers that question. But if you’ve been shopping around for guest books, you may have also been wondering where the tradition came from in the first place.
We wondered that too, and the short answer is no one really knows where they first showed up. We can tell you that in the good old days, the wedding guest book was a way for witnesses to testify that the marriage took place and was legitimate.
These days, we have other ways to do that, and the guest book is just a great way for your loved ones to offer warm wishes for your new life together.
While a traditional guest book makes a great coffee table or eye-catching addition to a featured bookshelf, a puzzle guest book gives you an interactive way to reminisce about your wedding and the loved ones who shared it with you.
We’ve compiled this fab list of wedding puzzle guest books to show you exactly why puzzle guest books are so great and to offer some creative inspiration when it comes to choosing your own wedding guest book!

Now you see what we mean! Like many of our favorite alternative wedding guest book ideas, this gorgeous puzzle makes a dramatic statement. It comes in 11 size options from 18 to 180 pieces, so you can choose the one that best fits your guest list.
The puzzle doesn’t come framed, but if you’d like to add that feature, it’s available in five frame finishes and nine mount board colors to match both your wedding and home decor beautifully!
It would also make the perfect gift for your favorite almost-newlyweds.
Want something a little simpler for a more intimate affair? This one comes with 64 pieces and one large middle piece featuring your names and wedding date.
It's the perfect framing size (21" x 0.12" x 21") and would look great on a desk or bookshelf.
This puzzle shows off your favorite photo and captures your guest's autographs on the back! Upload your wedding picture (or engagement shoot photo), and you’ve got a work of art to hang on the wall, as well as a great keepsake.
You choose the size and number of pieces you need, you can even opt for oversized pieces to give your guests more room to sign.
If you’re a true puzzle fan and you want a challenge, get the 1,014-piece puzzle. It’ll be more than enough to keep you occupied during your next power outage!
Handwritten in your choice of capital or cursive font, this pretty puzzle features your names and wedding date on the oversized centerpiece.
It’s hand-finished across the pond by an adorable family business in New Forest, Hampshire- but that isn't the only thing that makes it special. Because the wood is all sustainably sourced, no two puzzles are alike- hooray for the perfectly imperfect!
Oh, I feel that it’s helpful for you to know that the product ships quickly (even though it’s internationally shipped), and they even include a few extra puzzle pieces in case someone wants a do-over for their signature.
Just look at those sweet little hearts! We think this guest book puzzle would be right at home in a romantic country barn wedding.
You can choose your size from 14 up to 266 oversized pieces designed with plenty of room for your guests to sign and leave a message.
The matching sign and pen are so cute, and if you want to make it a really special gift, matching storage boxes in three sizes are available for purchase. The font choices are lovely, too!
The botanical design featured on this beautiful puzzle would fit beautifully with a flowery outdoor boho wedding. (Ha! Puzzle. Fit. Puns.)
We love the abundant choices you have to make it your own, too! It comes in three colors, a dozen monogram designs, and plenty of sizes to choose from.
Once you see it, you'll definitely want the monogrammed box and the sign too! It’s all laser engraved and cut from baltic birch for a sturdy puzzle that you’ll keep forever.
This puzzle also comes with the option to add a set of matching pens and two monogrammed puzzle keychains.
It's a fantastic keepsake, but because it's thicker, this wedding puzzle is also a great way to entertain your younger guests by encouraging them to sign it too!
The set includes a beautiful sign inviting everyone to leave their mark on your big day. The puzzle features seven beautiful design options for your oversized middle piece.
The calligraphy is beautiful, but the botanical flourishes are what really make the designs special! Comes in five sizes to suit your guest list.
If you're a Cali native, this one's for you! If not, it's all good. Just send a note to the DoAWedding shop and let them know your preferred state or country. You’ll have a choice of fifty up to 250 pieces, and it features a backing, so you don’t have to worry about losing any pieces.
Also, since it includes the bordered backing, when you’re ready to hang the puzzle, all you need to do when you’re ready to hang the puzzle is put a dab of glue on the back of each piece.
The puzzle by itself is inexpensive, which leaves more in your budget for the customized matching box, sign, and pens!
Another great way to show off that fave wedding photo! It comes in four rich finishes to complement your wedding and home decor. Whether you need 36 pieces or 320, it's sure to draw some serious compliments from your guests.
I really do love the box, but this puzzle would be ideal to mount and hang on the wall, too. The mixture of font, design and wood choices give it a really neat, almost retro vibe that would look amazing on the wall in a game room or home bar.
A departure from wood- this shiny acrylic puzzle would look right at home in a contemporary, metropolitan wedding. It features your pic at the center, surrounded by meaningful handwritten well-wishes from your friends and family.
Since it’s UV printed, the picture and text on the centerpiece won’t scratch, chip, or fade, so like the happy couple, it’ll last forever. Comes in four sizes in square or rectangle shapes.
Celebrate Your Connections
The crew at L&L has been around long enough to know that wedding guest books are one of the most beloved wedding keepsakes long after the flowers have wilted and the cake is gone. We hope we’ve inspired you to think outside the box when choosing yours! Cheers!
