5 Creative Wedding Guest Book Alternatives You’ll Love Revisiting

June 7, 2017 | nicole

Wedding guest books typically happen one of two ways: you stress to find the perfect book before the wedding, only to leave it in a box in your garage OR you forget until the last minute, and whatever you end up buying ends up in a box in your garage. Today, we are here to end garage guest books, once and for all! These wedding guest book alternatives are creative and practical, and we promise you’ll love revisiting them for years to come!

Polaroid Selfies

What better way to look back on who celebrated your big day than to see their smiling faces! We are positively obsessed with this picture perfect wedding guest book alternative. Provide an Instax camera, a sharpie, and either a place to hang or stick the photos, and your wedding guest book is taken care of!

Framed Artwork

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a memory of all the love you felt on your wedding day hanging right in your home? Enter the framed guest book option. There are endless options for prints to hang in your home with all your besties’ John Hancock, but we’re especially big fans of these by BirdAndKeyUK because the signatures really become a part of the art! Looking for something even more unique? Check out these cool 3D option by CeladonHome. Any of these would look SO much better in your living room than in a box in your garage!

Vintage Postcards

This guest book alternative makes for a sweet activity both during and after your wedding! On the day, have guests fill out a vintage postcard of their choice with their names and a message. On your first anniversary (or any ol’ time!), pull them out and read what your friends and family had to say! These could also make for a cool art piece in your home if you want to display them in your home!

A Globe

This alternative wedding guest book is perfect for adventurous couples whose love is bigger than all the countries combined! Some of our favorite guest books we’ve seen are actually the furthest possible from a book — a globe! Not only is it fun for guests to decide where in the world they want to sign their name, but a globe guest book looks great in your home too!

  1. Great ideas! My favorite is the framed artwork. Unlike a traditional guestbook (where no one really ever opens it up to look at the list of names), the couple can enjoy and appreciate their artwork for years to come as it graces their home. And with so many options they’re sure to find a style that fits in nicely with their home décor.

  2. Love this! I just photographed a wedding with an Instamax selfie guest book. It was so cute and all the guests had so much fun doing it! And I had fun taking pics of the guests taking their selfies, haha!
