Wedding Guest Books: The Alternative Option

For something a little more fun than traditional, why not try an alternative to the classic guest book? Rather than just recording the names of?those present, allow your guests to use?objects, puzzles and messages to note their presence. These can also make wonderful keepsakes, some of which you can display in your home.

Consider suggesting your guests do more than just sign their name. Having?your loved ones?create little tasks or messages for you to open on your coming anniversaries is a lovely idea. For instance, you could have several glass bottles, each with a different anniversary year on them, and allow your friends and family to leave memories, suggestions, cheeky remarks etc. for you to discover on these dates. In this way, you can create something to treasure, or find humour in, and it will be a favourite with both your guests and yourself on the day and for long after.

So find some inspiration below and create your own guest book alternative. The more personal, the better it the result.

Note: If you want the best of both worlds, have the quirky guest book as a second option.
