We bought a big vintage dictionary, and put out archival pens and a sign asking guests to find their favorite word, circle it, and write us a signed note.

My side of the bridal party got photos of us from our guests and made a personalized puzzle.  Guests signed the box.  Cute idea and I am a dork who enjoys puzzles.

A friend of ours did jenga blocks.  People pulled out the jenga block, wrote a note on it, and put it back on top.  It was a really cute idea.

Our invite mounted on some scrapbook paper in a large frame. We’ll supply green and orange sharpies for guest to sign and then we will put the glass back in and display in our apartment.

We bought this art print from an Etsy shop, the lyrics are from our first dance song. I’ve erase it from this pic but our initials and wedding date are inside the heart on the tree and the leaves are for signing. Lots of different sizes! We bought a small one since we had a small wedding.

We had a friend of ours paint trees with our birds in them, and had guests put their thumbprints on it as leaves, and sign as grass! Here it is in our living room now (with bonus DH shoulder and bird head!).

We had a Polaroid camera and had guests take selfies or photos of each other plus just around the wedding party once dancing started and stick it in the guestbook on corresponding pages to their messages. Instead of doing that in a guestbook you could stick Polaroids in a big frame and there’s space at bottom of the polaroids themselves for a short message! You can order all black and white Polaroid film to make a stylish artwork of this frame of photo messages to hang at home.
