Who needs a guest book when creativity rules?

November 15, 2010

According to Wikipedia a guestbook is a paper or electronic means for a visitor to acknowledge their visitation to a site, physical or web-based, and leave their name, postal or electronic address (if desired), and a comment or note, if desired.  My definition would be: Leaving a mark, love and support.  A mark meaning I was there, this is what I was doing at this moment in time.  Love, just because I love you!  And support, because no one is an island.  We need to share our special moments with our loved ones and to support each other is what life is all about.  

While choosing your of guest book, be creative and add your personality to it.  Think about  things you like?  Where would you like to keep it or display it after the wedding is over?  How can you incorporate the guest book into an opportunity to “wow” your guest making it fun and unique.  

Here are some ideas of what has been done.  But remember, there are NO rules, creativity is the key!

Make A Wish… Take A Wish… 
I love this idea…  as it is said, is better to give than to receive!  Your guests can take a wish and write you a note on paper and put it in a jar.  The notes can be more intimate and no one will read them once in the jar.  And you can scrapbook them later!  

The Wish Tree
Ask your guests to leave their love and advice on this cards.  After your wedding, you will have so much fun remembering your guests while reading their wishes.

The Wedding Tree
“Leaf” a thumb print and sign your name… What an unique and fantastic idea!  

Have each guest sign a rock and after the wedding you can use it as decoration.

Let your guest write their personal message in your vintage postcards collection!  To expand the experience a little you can have the guests mail the cards in with their wishes during the first couple of months of your marriage.

Wine Bottles
Great idea for a vineyard or winery wedding.  Let each guest sign their name and wishes in a wine or champagne bottle using a silver or gold colored pen.  Open a bottle on each anniversary!

Old Typewriter
For a vintage, garden wedding or just because you love old style writing, have an old typewriter and ask your guest type their name and wishes on a Wish Paper.

Whatever your choice for a guest book is, be sure it’s unique and represents who you are.  Be creative!
