There are many alternatives to a traditional wedding guest book that can make your special day even more unique and memorable. Inspired by the amazing Pink Audio Guest Box Phone Box from Candy Lady Lisa, we’ve listed some great ideas below. 

Extra Tip: A guest book, whatever the format, is only a great keepsake if it is used by the majority of your guests! To ensure this happens, why not assign one of our groomsmen or bridesmaids the job of reminding guests to sign/contribute a little something on your guestbook so it is filled with content and happy memories! 

Pink Audio Guest Box Phone Box
This is honestly one of the best ideas for weddings we’ve seen in a while! Your guests pick up the receiver and listen to your personalised pre-recorded host message. After the BEEP they can start recording their message… Afterwards, you then get a copy of all the recordings left by your guests! Simple, easy to use, and a great keepsake! Love it!!

Signature frame
Buy a large frame with a wide matting and have guests sign their names on the matting with a fine point pen. You can then frame a special photo from your wedding day.

Prop or giant Initial
There are a number of props you can bring along with you, set up and ask guests to sign throughout the day. Think globes, musical instruments or simply wooden initials that can later be hung up at home.
