Alternative Guest Book for Vow Renewal

Tara, on July 17, 2020 at 4:13 PM Posted in Style and Décor 0 19

My in-laws are celebrating their 40th Anniversary next month so we're planning a party (and possibly vow renewal if I can convince my father-in-law to go along with it). There won't be more than 50 people there. I'd like to have some sort of guest book for them as I think it'd be a nice gift and keepsake from the day. I'm looking for suggestions for an alternative guest book, not a traditional book people sign. Any ideas?

I found a print of a tree on Amazon where you can put your thumbprint and sign, but the quality isn't the best. Any suggestions (especially links or pictures) are greatly appreciated!!! It will be outside at a state park; more low key and rustic than anything.

    I did the thumbprint tree too! I like that because I actually display it as art so I actually see it in my daily life

    I am using a wooden pallet american flag that I have hanging in my living room currently. I am going to paint our last name and the date on it then have guests sign it and re-hang it.

    They have these really cute puzzle guest books ,
    Each guest signs a piece I think that would be a different and nice idea for them

    I had two canvases connect into one tree. The middle branches with the birds form a small heart.

    Can you get a picture of them on their wedding day? I believe there are places that will/can put the picture on canvas. How about getting the picture put onto canvas that is larger than the picture and let people sign around/next to the picture. Or get the wedding picture and a current picture -- maybe with their children (and grandchildren) and put them both on the canvas, perhaps one in opposite corners, and let people sign that. Just an idea.

    That's definitely a cute idea! And it might be fun for couple to actually do the puzzle together.

    I did think about that idea. I think that's nice because you can hang it anywhere in your house or make it part of a wreath or something to have on display. Any idea where you'll get it from?

    Cheryl thank you so much for that idea! That's a beautiful thought. They do have their wedding album, I looked at it recently with my mother-in-law. The quality isn't the best of the photos (welcome to 1980, lol). But I will have to look into that! Thank you!!

    That's exactly why, so I dont just have a book I'll never look at lying around. I'll probably hang it in my living room or bedroom with some wedding pictures. I'm pretty sure Michaels has them depending on what size you want. I've looked an Amazon also. There are a ton of craft stores online. I havent really looked too hard since I still have a lot of time.

    Yes! My MOHs are going to sign and leave little messages before the ceremony so that people have an example of what we’re hoping for.
