A wedding guest book is a staple at most weddings. It is a way for you to record who was there, and for your guests to add a short message of good wishes. However there are ides to make your guest book special and unique that will provide you with extra memories of your big day. Below you will find four different guest book ideas that will make your wedding special.
A Guest Book Confessional
Just like the popular reality TV shows, you can have a wedding guest book confessional for your guests. Have a small booth set up, where guests can go inside and press a button to tell a camera what they wish for you or remember most about your big day. If you are not technically inclined, you could always have a volunteer videotape the entries.
Guest Book Diaries
For an extreme twist off of the traditional wedding guest book, you can provide each guest with a little paper bound pamphlet. This is to be their own personal wedding diary that will be turned in before they leave. This provides each guest with a unique way to record what they liked most or treasured on your wedding day.
These diaries will not only let you know how much your guests love you, but they will provide you with lasting memories of your big day that you can treasure and read for the rest of your life. It is like having dozens or even hundreds of first-hand accounts of your big day from various points of view. What one guest might see, you could have completely forgotten about or missed out on.
Wall Mural Guest Books
If you want to make a lasting memory out of your wedding guest book, then ask guests to sign what will eventually be your wall mural. To do this, get a large sheet of paper, canvas, or other material that you choose, and have guests sign it with whatever you like. You can use pens, markers, or paints, but be sure to have them use the whole surface and write personalized messages for the bride and groom.
When the wedding is over, you can have the unique guest book framed, and display it in your new home if you like. This provides a beautiful memory of the beginning of your life together that will always help you to remember the love and support of your family and friends.
A Themed Guest Book
Some couples want to keep their wedding guest book pretty traditional, but still add a special touch. You can do this through the use of a themed guest book. All you have to do is purchase a traditional book, and cover it or decorate it with items that fit your theme. For example, you could use shells for a beach theme, or beads for a Mardi Gras theme. Regardless, be sure to add the special touches to make your book unique.
There are many ways to spice up a traditional wedding guest book. Whether you choose to go digital, provide your guests with a personal diary, create a lifelong mural, or just have a decorated theme book, you will be sure to add a personal touch to your big day.
