Sep 07, 2022 ByAndrew Parker

Guest books play a big role in memorializing a wedding because they provide the perfect place for your loved ones to sign their name and offer congratulations. And there are many ways to present a guest book that matches the aesthetic of your wedding. Here are a few wedding guest book ideas. Send postcards; it is an exciting option for travelers. Collect postcards and let guests write a note about their favorite. Add a personalized mailbox to make it even more unique. Throw a classic game into the mix. Use a pencil to set up a display of empty Jenga blocks. Each guest will have fun signing their block. Then every time you and your partner play, you will be reminded of all the great memories you shared on your big day.

Another wedding guest book alternative is to use a frame. Use a favorite photo and ensure it is framed with plenty of white space. Placing beautifully framed photos instantly changes the look. Make your guest sign with a permanent marker. You can also set the table with photos. If you are keeping your wedding guest book, don’t be afraid to add items to the table to spice things up. You can use a polaroid guest book, add a camera and pen and let your guest have fun. Ask them to sign their photo and leave it on the table. You can keep them in a photo box or make a book out of them.

Another idea to try out is the thumbprint guest book. This is a meaningful guestbook that can be framed into post-wedding wall art. You can draw a tree with many branches and include ink, and have your guest place their fingerprint on the branches like the leaves of a tree. Guest can sign their name on their leaf, which turns into a piece of art in your home. Lastly, you can make use of a wishing tree guestbook. Place beautiful cherry blossoms branches in a pot, make a card with ribbon, and have your guest sign it, then hang it on the branches.
