Alternative ‘Guest Book’ Ideas

Gone are the days where guests leave a simple message written in a book. Now couples are getting creative with their guest book ideas or choosing for much more decorative interactions that can be displayed as a personal piece of artwork.

Here are a few of our favourites we have found that we would love to inspire your wedding planning with. Share with us your thoughts and favourite ideas for your alternative to a guest book in the comments below.

If you are interested in any of these products please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on where we found them!

Use your Favourite Game

Jenga is a fun and interactive game of skill and certainly patience. Have your guests each leave a message on different sides of a Jenga block. This idea is an interactive guest book alternative that you can actually use in years to come.

Jigsaw puzzle of Love

Often the people in our lives are so integral to shaping us into the people we are. Have your guests sign a puzzle piece to symbolise the different people who make up your lives. You can frame the completed puzzle as a memory of your big day. Here are some that we have found and thought were gorgeous.

Date Suggestions

Have your guests share their favourite date ideas. It is important to keep the romance alive while married and we loved the idea of couples pulling out a suggestion when needing date inspiration! An alternative to this idea is having different jars for each milestone of your marriage 5, 10, 20 years and have your guests write advice for each of these milestones.
