Guest books are no longer a simple sign-and-go as they are traditionally portrayed. Many couples search for creative, multi-purpose, and cost effective ways to remember the guests the attended their wedding.
Below are our top 5 picks for creative (and affordable!) guest book alternatives:
2. Birthday Calendar
What a fantastic way to remember all the birthdays of your newly formed family and circle of friends! This idea is a creative and inexpensive way to personalize your guestbook!
This is a fun way to get the creative juices in your guests flowing, and it will be so interesting to go back and read all of the messages your guest wrote after the wedding! These can be displayed in a scrap book of your own by placing them in a binder.
4. Family Tree
A very unique and artistic way to display your new family tree! This can be done at the rehearsal dinner or at the wedding of course!
5. Polaroid Photo Area
This is Sarah’s personal favorite! Another great way to get guests involved in the wedding and the pictures serve as fantastic keepsakes. Encourage the guests to sign the back and display on a clothing line at the wedding!
Here are more suggestions that we love:
-Wine or Champagne Bottles – Provide 3 or 5 bottles alone with a silver or black metallic pen for your guests to use when to sign, and open on each anniversary or milestone!
-Wishing tree or bowl – Only takes a tall or wide hurricane vase and colorful index cards and pens to create this idea. The notes are glued inside a scrapbook after the wedding!
-Mad libs – now those will be fun to read!
-Your initials large enough to sign – they can then be used as décor for your love nest.
-Create a scrapbook of engagement photos and make each page a unique request for your guests to leave specific advice for a happy marriage!
