Weddings can be exciting times of joining together and unifying friends and family. Large groups of people are brought together to celebrate the happy couple. In this blog, I will be giving you a few tips and ideas for creating a unique and trend-setting guest book setup for guests to share their experiences and words of wisdom with you! Here's our list of top ideas for wedding guest books!
1. Polaroid Pictures
It may seem old-school or a flashback to the 1970's, but Polaroid pictures continue to come back into style. In the same arena as record players, they seem to be something that people are always fascinated by. Why not incorporate that nostalgia into your wedding?!? I am so excited that this trend is becoming popular as wedding guest books!
Guests can snap a photo, shake to view it, and then piece together a photo album of wedding memories!
2. Engraved Corks
The next idea requires obtaining some wine bottles, or at least the corks (sounds terrible, right? Haha :). The guest book is a series of signed corks that can be collected in any bottle, box, etc. Your wedding guests can engrave personal messages for you on the corks to be read later. This option also opens doors for potential DIY projects like these.
This one is a favorite of mine; shout out to all world travelers! Find an old globe, dust it off, and get it signed by all the people you love! There are several sites that sell full globes, painted globes, and others that you can use to document your big day. Guests may even tell you about their favorite travel spots (or test your geography skills, lol).
4. Wooden Hearts
This one is close to my heart (get it?). These cute little wooden hearts can be written on and collected to make a collage of sweet notes (like in the following photo). Guests write their message on the heart, slide it into the frame and the frame can be kept forever as a loving memento of your beautiful wedding day!
5. Message in a Bottle
Last, but not least...there is the classic message in a bottle. This option allows for more space for writing to the happy couple! You can ask your guests to write a message, short or long, that you can keep in the bottle or read later on. This can also be a fairly inexpensive option since it relies primarily on using paper. Their messages will survive, even through a long trip at sea!
