The best unusual wedding guest book ideas

If a drunken message in a notebook doesn't float your boat, choose a guest book idea that guests can have fun with

Wedding guest books can seem like a low priority when it comes to wedding planning and shopping. Falling under the stationery category, invitations, table plans and menus can all take precedence over this finishing touch.


While it may not be the number one thing to shop for, we do think it’s an important element and something that’s likely to serve as a lasting keepsake long after the floral arch has wilted and the wedding cake has been polished off.

Guest books can also serve as a wonderful pick-me-up when it comes to combating the post-wedding blues and gives you something to look through between the end of your honeymoon and the day you receive your wedding photos. Trust us, you’ll be glad you have something wedding-related to look forward to.

Go a step further and invest in an alternative guest book that will do so much more than allow you to read through some well wishes. Our round up of unusual wedding guest books include plants to jazz up your living room, pictures to hang up and even games you can play! From kind words to funny messages and date ideas, these guest book ideas will encourage your guests to get creative making them all the better to look at afterwards!
