Guest Books & Alternatives For Wedding Day Memories

Guest Books & Alternatives For Wedding Day Memories

Turn your guest book into something that you can cherish for more than a couple of days with these creative guest book alternatives! Not all of the fun is over after your wedding and honeymoon. Once you return, you get to pour over your photographer’s pictures, decide which keepsakes from your wedding you want to store, and read the thoughtful notes in your guest book. Finding guest books is easy! Visit Invitations by Wedgewood Weddings and find the perfect guest book and pens for your perfect day!


Remember who celebrated your “Best Day Ever” with you by asking guests to sign your guest book or alternative guest book keepsakes!

Personalizing your guest book in your own creative way really brings out your individual personality and uniqueness! Save your memories with stones of love, advice and sweet messages from your guests! Want to enhance your guest book table? Add photos and special family elements! Have your guests drop their messages into vintage suitcases, birdcages, antique mailboxes, and more!



Classic Guestbook

Classics are popular for a reason. Place an oversized book on a table near the bar and encourage guests to add their name with a memory of you or a wish for your future!

Vintage Atlas

Have your guests sign the pages of a vintage road atlas, highlighting the cities they are traveling from or destinations they know the couple is interested in exploring.  Great idea for brides and grooms that have either a case of wanderlust or an appreciation of vintage books.


Wishing Stones

Pretty forever-decor for your garden, or for a conversation piece. Buy smooth river stones and encourage guests to personalize them during your wedding. We've seen lovely designs that guests doodled over coffee and cake, or simple expressions of luck that are extra meaningful because of who wrote the note.

Polaroids & Washi Tape

Encourage your guests to make a traditional guest book completely unforgettable by DIY-ing one for you!  Have them take funny pics with the Polaroid and then affix it to a scrapbook with one of many types of washi tape. Use a scrapbook with plenty of space for them to share stories or help them out with pre-written questions at the top of each page.


Shadowbox Art

Like a fun game of Plinko, these wooden hearts are signed and then dropped into this bright blue shadowbox (below) to be displayed behind a thin pane of glass. Many different shapes are available for both the frame style and the wooden tokens. Find one that symbolizes the two of you, or DIY one that suits your wedding theme!


Holiday Decor

For your first major holiday as newlyweds, you'll want to remember your wedding and build new traditions. Buy glass ball ornaments in colors you want for holiday decorations. Provide your guests with paint markers and Sharpies so that they can draw or sign one. We bet that at least a few will be so well done that they will take up permanent residence on your tree each year.
