Guestbook Ideas for Your Wedding


Your wedding guestbook will be more than just a guestbook. It will serve as a memento for years to come; a reminder of your special day and the family and friends that helped you to celebrate. Many brides desire guestbook ideas that are unique and special rather than the traditional book and pen. Below, you will find many different guestbook ideas that suit all types of styles and personalities.

Picture Frame Guestbook Ideas

Rather than having the typical book, try placing a large engagement picture of you and your sweetie in a frame with an extra large mat. Then, at the ceremony, provide metallic gold and silver pens for your guests to sign the mat and leave brief best wishes. After the ceremony, you can reframe the picture and will be able to enjoy your ‘guestbook’ right on the wall!


Or, use a scrapbook idea and leave a Polaroid camera on the guestbook table. Have ‘helpers’ take pictures of your guests as they arrive and tape it into the book. Your guests can then leave their best wishes and messages beside their photos. This is another wonderful guestbook idea and your guests are sure to have a lot of fun with this one.


Household Items Guestbook Ideas
There are also a few really great guestbook ideas you can use that are not only unique, but will serve as household treasures for many years. For instance, purchase a beautiful specialty ceramic vase or serving dish and a ceramic marker so your guests can each sign the platter or vase. Follow the directions which come with the kit in order to set the ink – then you will have a beautiful decoration that will forever remind you of your wedding day.

For a very creative and unique idea, choose squares of fabric in coordinating colors (think wedding colors) and use fabric pens to allow your guests to decorate and sign the squares.  Have your squares cut about 3 inches each if you will have a lot of guests, 12 inches if it will be a smaller and more intimate wedding. After the ceremony, you can have the names and wishes embroidered and the squares made into a quilt to hang in a favorite place.


Most brides are excited to do something a little different with their wedding – creating their own special memories that will never be forgotten. Enjoy these unique guestbook ideas – use the ones provided or get inspired to be creative and make a wonderful guestbook for your wedding!
