creative wedding guest book ideas

Your wedding day will fly by in a flash, so finding ways to cherish the memories and relive the day over and over again is important. Your wedding photographs are a great way to capture the day, as is your wedding guest book! 

Having a wedding guest book lets your guests leave messages of well wishes for you and your spouse on their way out the door. Typically your wedding guest book will be set up near your wedding gift table, so guests can drop their gifts and leave a note all at once. While traditional wedding guest books have been a popular wedding tradition for years, more and more couples are opting to get creative with their wedding guest book options. 

Whether you are showing off your couple personality, or playing into your wedding theme with a book that doubles as creative decor, opting for a guest book alternative is a great way to make your special day standout.   

You’ll find some of our favorite unique wedding guest book ideas below:


Celebrate you and your partners love of travel with a guest book that takes your guests all around the world! Ask attendees to sign next to their favorite travel destination to learn more about your guests while also getting some new vacation recommendations. 


If you’re a lover of words, why not display a book full of creative ways to describe your love? Display a dictionary and ask guests to sign and bookmark pages that feature words describing you and your spouse’s love. 


If you’re getting married near the beach or ocean, play into your tropical wedding theme with a guest book that is totally tubular. Display a large surfboard and ask guests to sign it for a fun display that you can enjoy in the waves for years to come. 


Have guests sign pieces of fabric, and then sew it together to create a guest book that you can snuggle with! This is great if you already have a sewing machine and/or are hosting a winter wedding celebration. 

Corn hole

Perfect for tailgaters, a cornhole guest book is a useful idea that will be used at lawn parties for years to come. Get your initials painted on the corn hole boards and ask your guests to sign sweet messages around it. 


Love is a puzzle, and you’ve found your missing piece! Have guests sign and help put together your guest book puzzle as a fun activity at the reception (especially for kids!)
