One thing I love about wedding guest book trees is that they are truly customizable. You can choose custom colors, add a quote that has a special meaning, change elements of the design, and give you unlimited revisions.
You want a guest book that is fun, serves a purpose, and can double as a work of art in your home. Of course, you also want an awesome décor piece for your wedding reception as pictured in the photo above. These guest books are a modern spin on a traditional concept. The idea is simple: a beautiful tree with space on each leaf for guests to sign their name.
Leave the sentimental wishes to the wedding cards. A guest book tree allows guests to quickly and easily sign their name to create a beautiful piece of art!

Problem: What to Write?
As a wedding blogger, ironically I usually draw a complete blank when it’s my turn to put pen to paper and sign a guestbook at a museum, a B&B, or even a wedding guest book. I mean come on, it’s hard to come up with a witty, memorable, genuine sentiment in a couple sentence on the spot to express words you would never just come out and express to a lovely couple in person.
Not to mention, I usually browse the beautifully articulated comments a few up from mine, spot the perfect one, and wonder to myself, ‘How on earth am I ever going to top that comment?’
The pressure and inability to write leaves me scribbling down some over-used, generic message like, “Wishing you all the best!”
Yawn. Unimaginative and not worthy of being read years down the road by the couple.
Solution: Wedding Guest Book Tree
If you are the type that doesn’t want to extract witty comments from guests, nor have a book full of over-used wishes, then I have a solid suggestion to your problem: your very own personalized custom wedding guest book tree!
Go ahead and bring home a treasured memento rather than a dust collector.
Wedding Guest Book Trees We Love
1. Pine Tree Wedding Guest Book
What better way to symbolize the bringing together of all of your loved ones than to have them finish a beautiful, yet incomplete picture. The empty branches in create the perfect amount of space for your guests’ signatures, which at a glance will look like intricately textured pine needles.
And the more guests, the fuller the tree which means you don’t have to worry about running out of room! Once the big day is over, pop it in a frame and hang it on your wall for a piece of wall art that is just as attractive as it is sentimental.
2. Mountain Wedding Guest Book Tree
A large guest book isn’t always a great choice for your more intimate affairs. If you’re afraid of spending a pretty penny on a guest book that is likely to be left with a lot of empty pages, then a token piece designed guest book may be the perfect alternative for you! This magnetic, mountain themed token board is a great choice for an outdoor, rustically themed wedding. Just have your guests pick a tree, sign their name, and add it to the board!
3. Peacocks Wedding Guest Book Tree
Equal parts elegant and sweet, this peacock themed guest board will make a beautiful addition to your traditional and sophisticatedly classic wedding. You are limited in how many signatures you can fit on this board, however, with an order option of between 10 and 350 hearts you will definitely be able to find the perfect fit for your guest list!
4. Wedding Guest Book Tree with Custom Dog
Similar to our previous tree branch pick, this delicate piece from Zazzle will bring your guests’ signatures to life by turning them into the tree’s foliage. The sweet aesthetic, clean lines, and attention to detail however, makes this particular guest canvas really stand out! One amazing feature is the option to order your print with multiple panels, meaning you can separate the panels throughout the reception space to avoid pushing and shoving in those long lines!
5. Cactus Wedding Guest Book Tree
How sweet is this water color canvas by veteran Etsy seller bleudetoi?! Not only can the guests use their signatures to create the cactus needles, a mini–ink pad is included so guests can use their thumb print to create a cactus flower and add a pop of color! Not only is it a fun and engaging activity for your guests, it will leave you with a truly special artefact from your big day. You’ll be so happy you have these thumb prints as the years pass and you’ll be so thankful you chose this in favor of a more traditional guestbook.
6. Sunflower Wedding Guest Book Tree
What is there not to love about this sunflower guest canvas? Perfect for a more intimate reception, this piece will not only look beautiful when hanging up for your guests, you will love seeing it hung up in your forever home. What an amazing reminder of the best of your life!
7. Custom Venue Wedding Guest Book Tree
This fully customizable piece by Paper Ramma is an absolute DREAM. Not only can you choose the color scheme that best fits with your wedding’s aesthetic, you can choose ANY city skyline you’d like! Whether you choose the city wherein you’re getting married or where you met, this is such a nice touch that will truly make this one of a kind! We also love that you can choose from a whopping 24 couple silhouettes (which do include LGBTQ+ couples) so you can make sure you and your partner are being represented in the most accurate way possible!
8. Fingerprint Tree Wedding Guest Book
Fingerprint trees are a really great option for a few reasons: 1. They are such a fun way to engage your wedding guests! They will actually have a good time adding their fingerprints to the canvas and will no doubt be telling all of their friends about that really creative guest list idea! 2. They are just beautiful. You will love having this on display long after your wedding day is over. And finally, 3. As the years pass, you’ll be so thankful you have preserved fingerprints of those you love most. It’s a fantastic way to make sure your big day lives on forever!
9. Wood Wishing Tree Guest Book
This wooden wishing tree by highly rated Etsy seller InspiredbyAlma is the perfect guest book alternative for a wedding of any theme or size! Each tree comes with just 70 ornaments on which guests can write their well wishes, however, it is such an affordable item that if you have a huge guest list you can simply buy a few and place them throughout the reception area. This will cut down on long lines and big crowds, giving everyone the opportunity to participate.
10. Palm Tree Wedding Guest Book
This palm tree canvas is perfect for the boho chic or beach themed wedding. Your guests’ signatures will transform into flowing palms on this beautiful drawn palm tree and the canvas will make a great addition to any home!
11. Puzzle Tree Wedding Guest Book
This puzzle piece tree by Havoly is a great pick for rustic weddings! We love its natural wood finish and especially love the (optional) border that comes with it, as it turns a simple but fun puzzle into a real piece of art! Whether you put out it out already put together or decide to give your guests a bit of challenge, they’ll love this guest book alternative and will be taking about long after the big day is over!
12. Rustic Scarlet Oak Wedding Guest Book Tree

This two-toned, hand carved, guest book tree by TheBestDayEverStore is a real stunner. Its natural wood finish makes it perfect for a rustically themed or outdoor wedding, but its clean cut and beautiful script will make it fit in perfectly to even the most elegant of occasions! We also love how low fuss this is. Just leave it out some fine point permanent markers and let your guests express their well wishes however they deem fit!
15. Leaf Drop Wedding Guest Book Tree
