A guest book can be one of the most precious keepsakes from a wedding. Having a hand-written record of every loved one who shared in your special day is absolutely priceless, but why limit yourself to a standard book of signatures? Although a simple book is a classic option, there are so many creative alternatives to give your wedding a special flair and make a lasting impression on each and every guest.


Make Your Guest Book Interactive 

Put an Item on Our Bucket List: Let each one of your guests write down an activity or experience that they think you should have as a couple, along with their names. Compile all of their suggestions together in a cute wooden box, and you have a bucket list to complete over the course of your new life together.

Wedding Questionnaire: Have your friends and family fill out a small card of fun relationship questions.

“What should we name our first dog together?”

“Will our first baby be a boy or a girl?”

“Who wears the pants in our relationship?”

Make Your Guest Book A Part of Your Home 

Engagement Photo Guest Book: Blow up your favorite engagement photo or print all of them into a keepsake book to have in your home together. Every time you look at your photo hanging on the wall or flip through your engagement book, you will remember your perfect wedding day.

Drop Box Guest Book: Ask your friends and family to sign their names on an item of your choosing – from wood-carved hearts, to decorative stones, to simple pieces of patterned paper. Fill a glass jar or shadow box with these keepsakes and display them in your home as a daily reminder of your special day and everyone who shared it with you.

Make Your Guest Book Something to Use for Years to Come 

Bible Guest Book: Lay out your first family Bible that you and your spouse intend to use for years to come, perhaps with your new last name monogrammed onto the cover. Ask your guests to highlight their favorite verse(s) and sign their name next to it/them. This is a keepsake you can look through together and cherish forever.

There are without a doubt countless options when it comes to picking a guest book for your big day; however, choosing the keepsake that is special and unique to both of you is what’s most important, so choose what will make you look back on your wedding day fifty years later and still make you just as happy as you were on that day.
