I used Blurb to put together a photo album of our engagement photos with white space around them so people can sign.  I figure I’ll never look at a traditional guestbook, but I love scrapbooks/photo albums, so this should work nicely. πŸ™‚

I’m putting out squares of card stock in our wedding colours and sharpies. I’m going to incorporate the notes people write us throughout our post-wedding scrap book. I’ve attached a pic I took when I was fooling around with how to display it (I will not be using that place mat, but you get the idea)

I have a large picture frame that we are going to put one of our engagement pictures in during our wedding. We are getting a matte for it that we will have our guests sign and then after we get our pictures back from the photographer we will put a group shot of everyone in the frame and hang it in our home.

We combined our DIY photobooth with our guestbook. We had a Fuji Instax camera, which is like a Polaroid, and guests took their own pictures of each other and then put it in a scrapbook page and signed next to their picture. It turned out great!

I don’t know if this counts as unique, but our photographer is making our guestbook using our engagement pictures and pictures from my bridal shoot. That way we can keep our guestbook and it also doubles as a photo album!

We’re doing something like these for our guestbook


I’ll have a table set up with a basket of the pages, a basket of 4pk crayons, and a basket to return…

We’ll also have my Future Sister-In-Law and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man go around and pick up the straglers and pick out a few to read over the course of the reception….

We look forward to hear some of the tid bits of advice/predictions from our loved ones…. and I’m really exciting (knowing our guests) the hilarious ones we’ll get =)

A friend of mine did a video guest book. They gave a friend a video camera and he went around and asked everyone to give the bride and groom some advice. It was too cute!

@Treasure43: DH and I did the same thing and it turned out great!  We got a lot of compliments on it and I love having all of the messages and well wishes alongside our engagement pictures!

I’m doing a well wishes tree:

If you do like something like that, I recommend buying materials at save-on-crafts.com; they have pretty good deals on stuff.

Since me and my FH are geeks and gamers (tabletop gamers) and I’m an artist (digital and graphic art), I made up mock character sheets that we’re going to have the guests fill out and even sketch their own “avatar” if they want.  there’s also a place for “message for the bride and groom”.  We’ll have lots of samples on the tables for everyone to use as examples, though.

I’ll have to upload a jpeg of it later (it’s on my laptop and I’m currently using my work computer). 

For the guestbook itself, I made up the front, side, and back art for a binder that I’ll purchase from Zazzle to use as the actual guestbook/scrapbook/photo album.

I’m doing a thumbprint tree. You start with a graphic of a bare tree, and everyone inks their finger or thumb with green ink, and stamps the tree. You can see them on etsy.com (though I’m a graphic artist, so I’ll be doing my own).

I plan to frame it and hang it in our home.
