Picture This Guest Book

This is the perfect visual reminder for who attended the wedding. Guests simply snap a Polaroid photo when they arrive, secure it in the guest book, and write a note to the bride and groom.

Words of Wisdom

Set up a vintage typewriter and allow guests to type words of advice to the bride and groom. How much fun will it be to read through all of the typed notes after the wedding?

Wedding Mad Libs

Here is a fresh take on leaving a message for the happy couple. Guests can fill out a printable Mad Libs form and unleash their creativity.

Love Notes to the Bride and Groom

These gorgeous letterpress notes are an elegant way to record messages for the happy couple. Display in two baskets or buckets, one for blank notes and one for the completed notes.

A Paddle Full of Good Wishes

Get creative by having guests sign an item related to the theme of the wedding. These oars are perfect for a nautical wedding and would be nice to hang up after the wedding.

Vintage Postcards

Travel postcards are a fun way to leave well wishes to the bride and groom. Once the big day is over, the couple can read through the sentiments and display the postcards in their home or save them in an album.

Puzzling Messages

This guest book is perfect for the bride and groom who love games. A photo of the couple is put on a jigsaw puzzle, then guests sign individual pieces. Later, the newlyweds can have fun putting it all together.

3-D Tree Artwork

This unique tree art allows the wedding guests to choose a paper leaf to sign their name on. The happy couple can hang the framed art in their home as a reminder of all those who attended the wedding.

A Board Full of Envelopes

Here is a great way to send wishes and advice to the bride and groom. Mini envelopes are attached to a wood board, guests write a note, tuck it into the envelope and seal it up for the newlyweds to read later.

Ready to Hang

The custom of having guests sign a mat around a framed photo has been around forever. Instead of using a typical photo, use a customized graphic print, like this chevron version. After the wedding, find a perfect spot display it. Your guests will love seeing their names displayed on your wall well after the wedding.
