Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding Guest Book
Your wedding day will go by in a blur! You may hug everyone in a receiving line or when going table to table at the reception, but years later will you really remember the love you felt from family and friends? A traditional guest book is a good solution to documenting guests, but if you want something a little bit different, why not try one of these fun alternative solutions?
Signed Photo Frame – Guests sign the photo mat with their congratulations. This guest book frame makes a great keepsake because the well wishes are on display for you to see all the time, unlike a guest book which will likely be stored in your basement or closet.
Birthday Calendar –The Bright Life blog spotlights a fun way to remember your guests – with a birthday calendar guestbook. Each guest locates their birthday and signs on that square. What a fun way to document attendees as well as create a handy calendar for remembering the birthdays of the special people in your life.
Adirondack Chair – Clark + Walker Studio showcases the very unique idea of having guests sign an Adirondack chair. The wedding couple will be reminded of the best wishes from guests every time they use the chair. Use your imagination; there are certainly lots of other functional home items your guests could sign, such as a white platter using a porcelain pen
Your guests have made special plans to celebrate with you on your big day, so you know they love you! Let them express their congratulations in a unique way that you will cherish for a lifetime.
