The Signing of the Guest Book

We see the standard guest books very often, so why not put a different spin on this classic element at your wedding? There are so many different things you can do based on the bride and groom's personal taste, interests and passions. A guest book is such a multifaceted element of a wedding - so why not do something different with it?!

This couple used a large wooden "K" cutout as their guest book. The letter was painted a dark color and white paint pens were used to write personal messages. This not only makes for a great photo after all the signatures have been added, but it can also be used as a home decor item, placed in the newlyweds home as a reminder of their special day.

Another popular guest book idea is Guest Libs, a wedding spin on the classic game of Mad Libs. They can be used to get advice from your guests, or as just a fun activity for them to do throughout the night.

One idea that we love is used old vinyl records as a guest book. If the bride and groom share a passion for music, why not emphasize that by using records as the guest book? After the wedding day, the bride and groom can frame them in record frames and adorn their house with the well wishing of their most beloved friends and family.

Another interesting idea, and one I have yet to see, is the signing of tree stump slices. This is truly a unique idea, especially for a bride and groom that are aiming for a rustic feel on their wedding day.

Lastly, one of my favorite ideas thus far, is that of making a wine barrel or wine bottles your wedding guest book. A wine barrel can be used as home decor for a couple that shares a love for vino, while each different wine bottle can be saved for certain anniversaries, during which the couple goes back and rereads all the loving messages from their special day.
