Unique Guest Book Trends

Think guest books are on their way out? Think again! These unique wedding guest book trends will help you remember your special day and will help make your event even more memorable to those you are celebrating with. 

Polaroids Please
The 90s are back in full force and Polaroids are having a comeback of their own! Purchase a polaroid camera along with an empty guest book or scrapbook and don’t forget to add acid free glue sticks so guests can paste their picture on their chosen page. For a real throwback, consider getting glitter gel pens so guests can add their well wishes.

Absolutely Acrylic
Guest book? Home décor? Why not both?! Stop by your local hardware store to purchase a large piece of acrylic along with some paint markers. Have your guests sign their name on the acrylic and then simply display it in your home. As an added touch, paint the back of your acrylic so the names really pop!

Don’t Bottle Up Your Feelings
If you’re looking for an idea that won’t break the bank, this is it! Provide your guests with strips of paper and have them share their best advice. Purchase a jug — empty liquor bottles or thrifted jars are great options — and have them stuff the paper inside. On your one-year anniversary, crack open the bottle and read the notes together.

Bucket List
Marriage is an adventure! Allow your guests to come along for the ride by asking them to share items from their bucket list. On your honeymoon, read the ideas together and begin planning your journey ahead. 

Puzzle Pieces
Are you a fan of game nights? Be sure to include your guests! Purchase a blank puzzle and have each guest sign their name on a piece. Alternatively, you may purchase a puzzle with a photo of you and your fiancé and have guests sign the back of the puzzle piece. 

Jenga For the Win
Normal Jenga or giant Jenga? You choose! Purchase sharpies so guests can add creative and humorous “must dos” for when that piece is removed. From funny ideas to sexy suggestions, this idea will be a welcome addition to your next game.

Date Your Mate
Long after the honeymoon is over you should still be dating your mate! Have your guests provide you with a variety of date ideas! Resolve to select a date out of the jar once a month to keep things fresh.

Book Worms
Even if you’re not getting married in the stacks, you can still incorporate your love of reading. Purchase blank bookmarks and ask your guests to write down their favorite book along with their names and words of encouragement. It is like creating your own little book club with your wedding guests.
