10 Creative Guest Book Ideas

Traditional guest books are a thing of the past! There are plenty of fun, creative, and unique ways for your guests to remind you of who celebrated your special day! Here are 10 creative, alternative guest book ideas to keep in mind while planning.
  1. Photo Booth/Polaroid Pictures: A photo booth is a fun way to keep your guests entertained, and can also double as a favor for them to take home! You can add props for the guests to use for fun. Photo booths can print 2 strips, 1 for the guest to keep and 1 to leave in a book with a message for the bride and groom.

The Polaroid pictures can work in the same way, just make sure you have plenty of film!

  • Fingerprints: This unique guest book idea can also be used for art in the newlywed’s home! Be sure to have ink pads and baby wipes nearby for guests to clean their fingers. The guests stamp their thumbprint and then write down their name.

  • Engagement Picture Book: This is a great way to allow your guests to see all of your favorite engagement pictures! You can create your own design to the album, allowing open spaces for the guests to sign and write their messages.

  • Matted Photo Frame: Have guests sign their name on a matted frame using an acid free, fine point pen. Include the lyrics to your first dance, or a favorite quote. Your favorite wedding picture can be added later!

  • Jenga or Puzzle Pieces: This is a great idea for those couples who love game night! Have guests sign their name and write messages on a Jenga block. Every time you play the game you will be reminded of your special day!

    The puzzle guest book features a picture of the bride and groom. Have wedding guests sign the back of a puzzle piece and write a special message. Guests can add the puzzle pieces in a glass jar for the couple to complete when they get home!

  • Bench: For a more rustic feel, a bench can be another great way to remember those who shared your special day! Seal the bench with some glossy Mod Podge to preserve the messages. Bonus points for the groom if he can make it too!

  • Quilt: A quilt is also a creative guest book idea. Once all the pieces are sewn together, you can always be reminded of your wedding day. Make sure to place a piece of cardboard under the squares to avoid the fabric marker from bleeding through!

  • Advise & Well Wishes: Instead of guests signing a book, have them leave some advice and well wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs. A fun idea for the couple to read through after the wedding or when they need some advice later on!

  • The Bible A Bible also makes a very unique guest book. Have guests highlight their favorite verse and sign their name next to it. This is a very special way for the couple to remember their wedding day and have as their family bible for years to come!
