Unique Alternative Guest Book Ideas For Your Wedding

A guest book at your wedding is a wonderful keepsake of everyone that shared your special day with you. Traditionally, this was actually a book that guests simply signed their names in. Today, however, there are many unique and creative alternative guest book ideas out there. You can find many different ones at, and today's blog takes a look at a few of these for you. 

Items For The Home
You can replace the traditional book for guests to sign with keepsake items that can later be displayed in the home you will share as husband and wife. It can be a vase, jug, or shadowbox to hold a collection of items that guests will sign. A wedding that takes place at a winery is the perfect place to have everyone put their names on wine corks, or if you are getting married on a beach, have your guests sign pretty seashells. 

Our online wedding accessory store also carries items that your guests can sign their names directly on, like the Oval Ceramic Signature Plate pictured below. We also carry a lovely Rustic Wooden Guestbook Bench that is the perfect item for a charming country wedding, and it will look fantastic sitting by the front door of your home after the wedding.

Wall Decor 
Another guest book alternative that will also look beautiful displayed in your home is a gorgeous piece of wall art for your guests to sign. We have a wonderful variety of different styles of wall hangings for you to choose from which will work with any wedding theme or color scheme. 

The Home State Gallery Wrapped Canvas Guest Book is available with your state on it and comes in a variety of colors. You will even find some gorgeous signing frames that you can display with an engagement photo at your ceremony and reception, then add a picture from the wedding day afterward.

Words of Wisdom
If you know a lot of happy couples will be attending your wedding, they just may have some advice that could hold the key to a successful marriage. In that case, you can let your guest book be something that allows them to share their words of wisdom. These types of alternative guests books are also a wonderful way for your friends and family to share happy memories that they have made with you and express their good wishes for a wonderful future. 

Traditional Guest Books
Even though alternative guests books may seem fun to some couples, there is nothing wrong with sticking to tradition. You will also find a wonderful selection of wedding guest books at in lots of different materials, colors, and styles.

Occasionally you will even find these items in our clearance section at incredible discounts. (We have a pretty incredible clearance section!)
