the new guest books

Wishes from the heart are exactly what wedding guest books are designed to hold. They are an item to cherish for years after your wedding day. As well as acting as a form of wedding keepsake, they can also be a fun, imaginative and interactive styling accessory for your wedding day. So, why is it that they can often be forgotten or a panicked last minute consideration?

I’ve collated my top quirky guest book ideas for your viewing pleasure and with the aim of reminding you to buy or make a guest book and to hopefully help inspire a choice that will be perfect for your wedding day! Think outside the box (or book).

the best to buy

My favourite bespoke guest book options are the Personalised Vintage Map Guest Book, Personalised Deluxe Wedding Guest Book and the Photograph Wedding Guest book.

However for some top ‘book’ alternatives, these framed artwork options are great and a way to really get creative with the concept of a wedding guest book: the Personalised Wedding Signing Frame, the Wedding “Guestbook” Luxury Poster and the extremely cool ceramic, Personalised Signature Plate.

For a framed guest book style momento with a real personal touch, the Personalised Thumbprint Tree is quirky and interactive and literally allows each guest to leave their mark on your wedding day.

DIY love

You could have a go at making a masterpiece using photographs and messages left by guests on the day. Prepare pieces of card, tags or postcards for your guests to write messages on and leave for you. Perhaps you could have the Wedding Post Box or a similar receptacle on hand for keeping them safe, along with your wedding cards.

Next step, hire a photobooth from boothnation, use disposable cameras or a polaroid camera if you’re lucky enough to own or borrow one for the day. Ask guests to take a picture of themselves whilst leaving messages. Perhaps you could leave props so guests can have a bit of fun and get creative?

After the wedding you can collate and match up all the pictures and messages and make your own wedding scrap book, framed collage or pop all the pieces in a keepsake box or photo album. All the after-wedding-options are cool, but which option you choose will depend on how blue peter you dare to go. Double sided tape at the ready…!

Feel free to share any of your own guest book ideas, we’d love to hear from you…
