15 Unique Wedding Guest Book Ideas

1. Having a vintage themed wedding? Find an old type writer, insert a piece of extra long paper (color of your choice) and let guests type their messages on it. The couple can then roll the paper up into a scroll, tie it with a ribbon and win the award for Most Creative Sign In Book Idea.

2. Who said it has to be a book? Provide baby envelopes and little slips of paper that the guest can stick in a beautiful vase or other form of collector.

3.      Line the inside of a blank photo album with little envelopes and provide bits of card stock that guests can insert in.

4.      Get creative. Provide stickers, stamps and different colored pens and papers maybe even wallet sized pictures of the couple, to construct a creative card.

5. Using an ordinary sign in book, attach envelopes onto the pages inside (these can be different colors/sizes etc.) and then provide different stationary bits for your guests to write on. Guests can then tuck their notes and well wishes into the inside of the envelopes. On the opposing page I would attach a bridal/engagement picture.

6.      Using cards from an address file, have guests write down their wishes for the couple and then file them alphabetically. (Example: Happiness. Filed under the letter H)

7.      Have someone in charge of taking Polaroid pictures of the guests as they walk in. After the picture is taken, have them insert them into self adhesive photo corners in the sign in book and write a note next to it.

8.      Guests write letters on provided stationary and stick them in decorated mailbox.

9.      Have guests write well wishes on a piece of quilt fabric with permanent fabric markers. These can then be sewed together as a quilt for the couple.

10.  Have guests submit a wish they have for the couple in one jar and then have them take a wish that the couple have previously written down for them in another jar. Its like fortune cookies but better!

11.  Guest Tree. :) Slips of paper strung with ribbon.

12.  Instead of having a sign in book, have a sign in scroll. This provides a very regal and elegant feel right off the bat as guests walk into the reception.

13.  Create a heirloom. Get a guest book that has plenty of pages and have guests write personal notes in it. Later, you can bring it out for your 50th wedding anniversary and have guests write notes again. If the book is large enough, your children can then do the same thing with the same book.

14.  Using a coffee table book that has to do with your theme, honeymoon, or interests, have guests write down their thoughts in the margins.

15.  Have guests write their names on a vintage map. The map can be of the whole world, the place the couple will be honeymooning etc. The map can then be framed afterwards for a beautiful and sentimental addition to the couple’s home.

  1. My wife and I did the one where we hung decorated papers from trees at our outdoor reception. If I could post a pic on here I would, but I can't so just imagine a glorious Oregon summer day in a wooded area by a lake with our guest book tree in the middle of it.
