The best wedding guest book ideas

As well as your wedding photos and what you can physically remember (which may be affected by how much champagne you guzzle during the day) one of the best mementos is the guestbook. This gives your guests a chance to tell you how beautiful you look and how you’re wedding was the best they’ve ever been to (whether they mean it or not).

So, to help you keep a lasting record of who was there and who wasn’t (trust us, it’s harder than it looks to remember), here are some top guest book ideas.

Thumb print guest book

Start with a bare tree and let your guests create leaves using their thumb prints from coloured ink, signing their name next to it. Also handy if any crimes are committed during the day and fingerprint evidence is needed.

Stamp or signature trees

If you want to avoid the whole genetic information collecting argument or having inky thumbprints all over your dress, use a stamp to make the leaves. Or even just let your guests sign individual leaves.

Anniversary wine bottles

For a guest book that keeps on giving, have guests sign wine bottles that you can drink to remember your special day down the years.

Custom cards

Let your guests get creative filling in a card in their own special way. You can also use this to collect names and addresses which will help when it’s thank you card writing time. Clever, clever.

Fill in the blanks

Rather than letting slightly tipsy guests scrawl nonsense, direct their messages with some fill in the blank cards with appropriate spaces for messages (just avoid it being too much like a tax return).

Wishing tree

Let your guests write out wishes and hang them on a tree, which also creates an instant wedding decoration.

Message in a bottle

Let your guests write their messages and seal them in a bottle to be opened in the future. Like having lots of mini time capsules from the best day of your life.

Jigsaw time

Get guests to write messages on individual pieces of a jigsaw. Then you can piece them all together after the wedding.

Rocking out

Have guests write messages on smooth river rocks (spray them afterwards to preserve the writing) and arrange them to make a great garden or home feature.
