21 Alternative & Unique Guest Book Ideas

Written by , Posted in Be Inspired, Helpful Lists and Guides


Don’t get us wrong, we love a guest book full of inspirational and encouraging messages from your guests, it’s just sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a little! So here’s a few (ok 21) alternative ideas if you fancy something a little different!

 Yep, that’s right! JENGA! Get your guests to write their messages on the individual blocks!

Bridal Game Button

 Writing on wine bottles is a perfect idea for the couple’s who are particularly fond of a glass of wine, plus it makes a lovely keep sake to perhaps open on future anniversaries.

 Well wishes onto a guitar gets our instant approval! We LOVE this!

Snapchat Props Button

 Guest book alternatives that tie into a wedding theme are becoming increasingly popular, we’ve seen a few like the one above that have notes from guests inside a suitcase!

 Here’s another perfect example of tying your guest book into your theme! This particular one was hand made and we adore the messages on the petals!

Emoji Cake Topper Button

 Guest books that can be displayed afterwards always get our vote, it’s lovely to have a constant reminder of your day.

 Messages of encouragement on pebbles. Simply lovely.

 You can always lay out lots of coloured pens on a huge table cloth for your guests to sign!

 Ok. So in theory this is a guest book, but we love polaroids so much we just couldn’t resist this one!

♥ This ‘Up’ inspired poster lets guests write their messages on balloon shaped card!

 Another great example of a themed ‘guest book’. Something like this would be perfect for a woodland or forest inspired wedding!

 Putting letters of love where they belong; In a letter box! Gorgeous idea.

 Or alternatively, display lots of envelopes for your guests to slot their notes in!

 This one is a little different but absolutely brilliant! Instead of a guest book this couple asked their guests to write a story of how they knew the bride or groom!

 Writing messages onto a map is great for a travel themed wedding or for a couple who’s travelling after their big day!

 aaahhhhhh. Amazing. Messages on a vinyl of the bride & grooms favourite song!

 If vintage is something that will be showcased throughout your wedding day then a type writer is a perfect fit for the theme!

 Signing the couple’s initials is also something that’s becoming quite trendy!

 A guest book tree! All of the lovely messages tied on by ribbon to create a beautiful presentation of well wishes!

 ‘Share your key to success’. We completely fell in love with this when we saw it! It’s clever and beautiful.

 And last, but not least, something quite similar to Jenga, Getting guests to sign jig saw puzzle pieces for future use!

This is obviously just a small sample of alternative guest books, the possibilities are endless for things you can get guests to sign!

If you did something creative with your guest book, please get in touch and let us know!

Much Bespoke Love
