The modern guestbook

Jackie, on July 31, 2023 at 16:10 Posted in Wedding reception 0 16

Guestbooks are one of those beautiful mementos we get to keep and re-visit for years after our wedding day. Couples have been moving away from the traditional guestbook in favour of things like shadow boxes, advice and wishes, video's or polaroid's. What kind of "Guestbook" are you brides planning, will you go with the traditional paper and pen, or do you have something different in mind? Share your ideas!

    We are using our welcome sign as a guestbook, guests will sign the matting and will hang it after with wedding pictures around it

    One of our favourite, first games we ever played was Jenga. So I had 2 Jenga games placed in several stacks for people to sign for us.

    My friend did a photo album of their lives together and people just signed it.

    I have a frame with tiny little hearts that everyone will sign and place in the frame, I like this because I can then hang it up in our new home.

    I think my fianc茅 and I are going to do a photo book of our engagement photos that people can sign and write their well wishes around on different pages. We can use it as a coffee table book too so that we can pull it out and look whenever we want Smiley smile

    We did a Polaroid guestbook that we ordered off of Etsy. I was so happy with not only the actual product but it was sweet to read messages and also see a photo of the couple having fun the night off paired with the message. I will say though had my best friend and the bartender not interfered and gathered people and physically take the photos, I COULD see it being something people forget about, especially older people who may not know how to use a Polaroid lol.

    We did a digital guest book, partially because we wanted photos to go with the messages but also because we got married during the pandemic so we had a lot of people tuning in virtually. We placed a QR code at each table that linked to the digital guest book and people could write messages and attach a photo, or send us a video clip with their message. We also linked it to our ceremony live stream so guests at home can send us messages.

    We were able to download the guestbook and print out the pictures with the messages.
