Wedding Tips #6: Wedding Guestbook Alternative Ideas

12 July 2016

Looking for something different from the traditional guest book? Why not create a talking point among your guests straight away on arrival to your wedding venue and choose something alternative and fresh. Here’s some of the ideas we’ve seen throughout the years guaranteed to impress and enhance your day.

Thumbprint Art

We love the idea of thumbprint art for your guestbook alternative. Providing various coloured ink, guests can add their thumbprints to your image of choice. Popular website Etsy.com have lots of choices here.

Jigsaw Guest Book

Guests can pick a jigsaw piece and leave their inspirational best wishes, creating a beautiful finished puzzle. We love the heart-shaped puzzle available at Bride & Groom Direct here.

Signed monograms

Providing wooden initials or symbols can make the perfect wedding “guestbook”. Not only offering a superb wedding guestbook alternative, these monograms can later become beautiful and nostalgic décor for your home.

Drop Top Wedding Guestbook

The Drop Top Wedding Guestbooks have become hugely popular in Ireland over the last few years following their immergence in America. Guests simply sign a heart (or other shape) and drop the piece into the frame. Visit The Floating Frame’s website for beautifully bespoke drop top frames.

Polaroid Guest Book

Okay, so technically this is a guestbook, but mixing up the idea with a Polaroid camera and photos brings your wedding right back to the 90s. Perfect for looking back on years later to see everyone’s pictures as well as their written messages.

Messages on a prop

Simply pick a prop for your guests to write their messages on. We love the idea of using vinyl records of your favourite songs, suitable for framing at a later date.
