FH & I are having a photo album (we have six years of pics together to use, so we figured it was a good option for us) where people can sign in the margins/on blank pages/etc. We’re getting in printed by Mixbook, but you could scrapbook a really nice one!

There is no “best” idea. It’s whatever you want it to be.

Here’s an old post that has a number of ideas.

Unique Guest Book Alternatives?

@Jenniphyr:  We’re doing something similar…. we’ve been together for 10 years so I just made an album on shutterfly with pictures throughout our relationship and left every other page blank and put “Guests” at the top so they can sign – yearbook style I call it.  Write as little or as much as they want.  I thought it turned out cute and it’s something we’d actually look at after the wedding – we didn’t want something that we’d feel obligated to hang on a wall or shove in a closet.  At least this way it’s something we can put on an end table or something.  🙂

I had the crazy idea of doing a wish tree as a guest book, we wanted something unique. It’ll look something like this:

@futuremrspaulino:  I’m doing something similar to this, but I’m calling it a wish box. Guests will write their wish on a postcard, and then drop it in a box for us to read later.

We are doing a guest book quilt. Each guest gets a piece of fabric to write or draw on and later I will assemble the quilt which can stay on our coutch for years to come to be enjoyed. We hated the idea of something stuck in a bookshelf or a closet.

I found this on pinterest:

So we copied it, but with our H.

We went with a Polaroid guestbook, and we feel really happy about it. Some people got really silly with it, which is great. It was fun, the day after the wedding, to look through all the photos. In years to come, I think it will be nice to look back at the pictures and remember just how everyone dressed and styled themselves way back in good old 2012. The biggest expense was buying the camera, but hey! Now we own an instant camera.

I love the Polaroid guestbook, too.  We’re not going to be able to do one since we’ll be having 150 ppl at our wedding.  And, it’s going to be hard to get everyone one of them involved.  //  We’re doing a fingerprint tree guestbook.  It’s an oldie now but it’s still a goodie.

At Quaker weddings since there is no officiant the marriage certificate must be signed by all the attendents, the certificates are usually beautifully decorated and the names of the couple and the vows they exchanged are often written in calligraphy on the certificate followed by the spaces for people to sign, they are meant to be hung and they basic idea can be modified for a beautiful geustbook for a small wedding. I’ve put in an example with quilling, but they can be painted, or decorated however.

@Bgarver:  How about the wish/conversation cards at the guestbook table?  And, the mad libs at the dining table?  It gives the guest something to do while they wait for dinner to be served.
