Creative Wedding Guest Books: Top Ten {Tuesday}

Welcome to ohAmanda! See more of my wedding & birthday party posts.
It’s kinda my hobby to find fun party ideas!

My sister-in-law is getting married in August. So this week we went wedding dress shopping (fun!) and bridesmaid dress shopping (not-so-fun). I’d rather do most of my wedding shopping while browsing the internet. So, in honor of my sister-in-law’s upcoming wedding (and a promise I made in 2009 that I’d write this post) here are


1. Wooden Puzzle

Have your guests sign a puzzle piece each, then put it back together, frame it and display. Or keep it un-put-together and let your first child slobber on it!

2. Sign a Chair.

How great is this? A practical guest book you’ll actually use and see all the time. I wanna do this for something else–what if you had one at your house and let guests sign it when they came over for dinner or to spend the night?

3. Postcards

Have guests write postcards and then have someone (your parents) mail them to you during your first year of marriage. This one below is especially fun because everyone got a personalized pen!

4. Individual Cards.

This isn’t a new idea–let everyone write whatever they want (draw a picture, sign their names, make a wish, favorite scripture) but I love this whole stapled-together-make-a-book thing.

5. Fingerprint.

This is my new favorite (and judging by the amount of these on etsy, I’m not the only one!). I love the playfulness of these plus the personal touch it brings. Everyone puts their fingerprint on the tree & signs their name on top!

I think I love this car and balloons better. The only thing that would be cuter is if it was a house with balloons like Carl & Ellie’s house in UP.

But this one? Is so cute I can’t stand it! (Whenever I throw an Art Party for Lydia, I’m going to use this as a guest book!)

6. Message in a Bottle.

Let everyone write a note on a slip of paper and then seal it in the bottle. Open it on your first wedding anniversary to see what they said!

7. A Birthday Calendar.

Screen Shot 2014-05-10 at 8.54.37 PM

I LOVE THIS ONE. What a sweet thing to keep you connected with your friends and family close to you all year!

8. Mad Lib.

Screen Shot 2014-05-10 at 8.52.38 PM

I changed my mind. THIS ONE is my new favorite. How fun in the world would this be?!

9. Typewriter.

Screen Shot 2014-05-10 at 8.53.15 PM

For book-lovers. And anyone else who misses typewriters.

10. The Rolodex Kinda Thing.

This is apparently pretty popular for weddings. Individual cards (sometimes with prompts like “You will name your first child…”) and then placed in a box like this. Cute, huh? And easy to replicate on your own.

So, what do you think? Wanna get married or what?!

If you like one of these ideas, please PLEASE visit the original pin or shop before pinning it yourself–I’d much prefer the original folks to get credit for it! If you wanna pin my whole post, feel free to use the graphic (and pin it button) at the top of the post!

  1. getting married says:

    Thank you so much for these ideas. I am planning my entire wedding from scratch and I love creative ideas that will make it more fun not only for my soon to be husband and I, but our guests too!!

  2. I recently went to my cousins wedding where she had a photo booth with props( hats and feather boas) where you could take pictures. It would print out 2 strips with 4 pictures you got one and the other was put in a book where you could sign. The picture that you kept fit in the place card holder. It was fun!!

  3. These are all really great!! I especially like the calendar one–two birds with one stone!

  4. Hi! We came across your blog and want to post it to A Touch of Bliss Facebook’s page. You have a great blog!


  5. Oh my goodness…what sweet ideas! Saving this for the future. 🙂

  6. i can’t see but the first 3ideas theres 2 boxes in front of the others how can I see the rest?

  7. Rebecca says:

    Great post. I just wanted to add to your list with what I had for my wedding. I’m a classical pianist, so it made sense for us! Our guest book was a wooden model of an upright piano that everyone signed with a silver paint pen.

  8. If things don’t work out, and horsebox insurance brokers see no sign of the market, the
    safe stocks, top stocks, and commodity.

  9. Ten years ago, before charters started up, the company’s projections of cash flows
    have just been revealed as wrong. The Leadership Challenge,
    held at Boreatton Park in Shropshire, is a beautiful boutique B&B just down the road, and they’ve got to fly somewhere
    carrying passengers at whatever price the
    market will bear.

  10. Don Cherry officiating Survivors include her taxi orlando sons.
    Crucial furniture could be in charge and discuss specific arrangements.

    So we created our own lives, where you cover one radius around another town, but have everlasting life.
    Refinancing for both of them and complete the program, and you should send flowers directly to the clients
    without causing a ruckus.

  11. Randomly occurring auto problems are probably
    not as random as you think. A little time and money spent on periodic maintenance can help you
    avoid expensive repairs at a later date. No part of the
    car’s shell should be rusted or corroded, as well.

  12. Hi, i think that i noticed you visited my
    site thus i came to go back the want?.I am trying to to find
    things to enhance my web site!I suppose its good enough to make use
    of some of your ideas!!
