I’m not sure what you have seen so far, but here are a few ideas.

You could have those paper masks with feathers/glitter in your wedding colors (flat paper) and have people write their wishes or notes to you on the back and place them into a table top old/vintage looking trunk.


You could do a black tree and have people hang wish tags on it once they fill them out, the tags could be in your wedding colors, or cut into silver star shapes for the tree and you could do a moon backdrop behind the tree, so it would look like stars in the sky.


You could put out a polaroid camera and have guests take photos of one another, then place the polaroid into a special guest book made to match your colors, once the photo is in, there would be a spot next to it to write a note to you and your soon to be spouse.  Then you would have photos of guests in their costumes.


You could have a smaller guest book on each table (they could double as table numbers) Table 1 cover would say please leave a message for the bride and groom (or your names) to read on their 1 year anniversary, then table 2 would say 2nd year anniversary and so on.


You could do a book that has mini envelopes in it and card stock notes on the table and the guests could write you notes and place them into the mini envelopes on the pages.


You could have a ‘mad lib’ written up for you and your soon to be spouse with a theme that fits your wedding, like it was a magical night when _____ happened.  The bride was so entranced at all the _____ that she _____ed all the way to the ____.


Best wishes on the road to your big day!!!

This isn’t the most fun idea in the world, but I decided to go with a recipe card box.  I had it customized in my wedding colours by a vendor on Etsy.  I find traditional guestbooks boring too, and I’m pretty OCD about organization, so the idea of having a bunch of uniform little cards that I can tuck away in a cute little box works for me!  

Since I’m also artsy, I plan to leave lots of customizing options out too – lots of colours of pens and markers, stickers, stamps… just to see a bit of each person’s personality in their card. 🙂

We are doing 3 guestbooks.

1 will be the traditional guest book, the 2nd will be a wishing tree and the 3rd will be a large mirror with this decal :

Our guests will sign it with paint pens.

We wanted something artsy for our new home.
