Guest Book Alternatives

Guest books are nice, but they also just end up in a closet forgotten. It’s time to make it something more interesting, something you can enjoy every day. Here are a couple ideas for you to get the hamsters running.

My first idea is the photo guest book…It’s sort of like a traditional guestbook except it contains images from your engagement session. If you don’t want to do an engagement session with your photographer you can also use images you’ve taken yourself. There is room left on each page so friends and family can leave messages of love.

My second idea is the signature frame. All your friends and family can sign the matt and leave you wonderful messages. Then you pick your favorite image from the wedding to put in the matt. It’s something you can look at and love every day, a wonderful reminder of your wedding day.

My next idea for you is the ceramic plate. Guests sign a white ceramic platter using Pebeo Porcelaine 150 paint markers. You can find these in a variety of colors and sets. Guests sign, draw and design on your platter and then it is baked in the oven at 300 degrees for a half hour. This makes it completely permanent and dishwasher safe.

An intersting idea one of my clients came up with was a photo puzzle. Have one of your favorite engagement images turned into a puzzle and have your family and friends write messages on the back of the pieces. It will be fun to put the puzzle together with your spouse or future children and read the messages on the back.

My last idea for you today is the wedding guest book quilt. It’s a wonderful keepsake that you can use everyday! Guests sign fabric blocks at your ceremony or reception. Then A quilt is made from the signed blocks and fabric based on the color or theme of your wedding. It’s something you can keep warm with for the rest of your lives together. You can even have blocks made with images from your wedding.
