Fun and Fresh Guest Book Ideas

Here at QC, one of our own is in the midst of feverishly planning her own wedding – so we’ve had weddings on the brain. There are just so many little details that have to be considered, and it’s hard to juggle all that planning while still making the day unique and personal. One of those details is the guest book. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little tired of those old-fashioned, ribbon-bound guest books. Does anyone even look at them after the big day?

That led me on a search for fresh guest book ideas. Here’s what I’ve come up with…

Finger prints! What I love most about this idea is that after the wedding day, you can frame this and showcase it in your home. There’s so much versatility with the fingerprint guest book – different colors and different designs really allow the couple to choose a style that matches their personalities. Also, it doesn’t require guests to think of something inspiring to write to the couple. All they need to offer are their fingers!

Again, a guest book that can actually be used after the event! This porcelain platter comes with a special pen and instructions on how to preserve the signatures for years to come. What a great keepsake for the happy couple.

Photo booths have been really trendy in weddings lately, probably because of their vintage vibe. Although this idea is more along the lines of a traditional guest book, giving your guests the opportunity to add their snapshot is a great way to add a bit of fun to your reception. You can easily rent out photo booths for weddings and other events, and often the rental companies will provide digital copies of all the photos you take – something your guests will surely appreciate afterward.
