Non Traditional Guestbook Ideas?

Imani, on March 14, 2022 at 10:06 AM Posted in Style and Décor 2 107
Is anyone doing a non traditional guestbook? I saw the big letter that everyone signs and also the heart shape paper. What are you ladies planning to do?

    My friends did a wooden board with their new last name on it, then everyone signed in silver Sharpie. It's hanging in their dining room and looks great!

    We recently attended a wedding where the guest book was little wooden hearts that you signed and dropped in a glass shadow box which was cute!

    We'll be having a physical book, but we'll also put my Instax mini nearby with lots of reloads! We're having a small group, and I think having them take pictures would be such a fun way to relive the night!

    I REALLY like the instax mini idea! We have one but we’ll also have a photo booth with customized prints. And we’re expecting 100 guest. But. I also like the wooden board idea. I can see it hanging in our dining room. Thank you , thank you !

    We're doing an instax mini where we'll have guests snap a selfie, sign the back of the photo and then put it in a mini photo album!! My fiancé is weird about people's handwriting being bad and not wanting to be able to see it all the time hahah

    FH and I are making a Cornhole Set, that we will have guests sign.

    It's something we need for our new house, and something we'll get a lot of use out of and be able to see all the time!

    Lol - fair enough. I do love this idea. Are you having more than one instax mini? We’re expecting 100 people and Im trying to think of the logistics.

    Now I have to ask, and don’t judge me but what exactly is a cornhole set? I have never heard of that before.

    You know, that's a good question. We are likely going to have around 60 or so people there, so I imagine we could probably get away with just one BUT that being said, my sister does have one so we could see if we can use her's as well just to help streamline the process

    Yeah, that might be a good idea. I am really considering this as a guestbook option. Did you buy a regular photo album?

    Our wedding isn't until January so we haven't bought much yet at all. I found some albums on amazon though specifically designed for instax mini's- smaller photo pockets!!

    We ordered a custom hockey jersey from our college's hockey team. It has our last name and the year (22) as the number. We will have everyone sign it and then frame it to hang in our home. We both love hockey and have several framed signed jerseys from our favorite professional players so it was something we would actually want to display and keep forever. I am all for having a non traditional guest book!

    We got married at a winery, so we had bottles of wine and glass pens! One each for our 1st, 5th and 10th anniversaries, then a bottle of really nice scotch for our 25th.

    Thank you! we knew we wanted something we could use - I tend to find I don't really look at traditional guest books more than reading it that first time, so having something practical felt sensible for us!

    My fiance is a huge sports fan so I m surprising him with a custom made jersey with our last name and wedding date on it for the guest book ( ill also have a smaller traditional book if anyone wants to sign that instead). We ll have the jersey framed and hang it in our finished basement/rec room. Shhhhh don't tell him, his brother was also able to help me get the team to sign a separate jersey he s going to go nuts ( its so hard not to spill the beans!!!) Smiley winking

    Here are some other fun ideas:
