Guest Book Alternatives


One of the best ways to personalize your wedding is through your guest book. If a traditional guest book seems too overdone for you, we have come up with some unique guest book alternatives for you to consider.

Guest Book Globe

If you and your fiance are known for traveling (or you plan on doing so in the future), consider putting a globe out as your guest book alternative. It’s great for so many reasons. One, it can easily become an accent piece in your home. The globe will be a constant reminder of one of the best days of your life. The other of course is that it captured the signatures of all your favorite people.

Guest Book with Photos

What’s better than all your guest’s written messages? A photo to go along with it! Have each guest add a photo of themselves to a scrapbook with their signature and a message.

You can use disposable cameras or Complete Weddings + Events offers photo booths in Fargo, ND to help make the process super easy. The photo booth attendant will assist guests with taking photos, adding them to the scrapbook, and giving each guest a copy of the photo strip to keep. It’s a win-win party favor for them and a scrapbook of memories and cute messages for you!

Leave A Message

Sometimes written words don’t quite capture the essence and sincerity of messages from your guests. Instead of having your guests write you and your partner a message, what if they left you a message on a phone? That’s where FeteFone comes into play.

This unique way of having your guests remembered is making its way into weddings. You simply place the phone for your guests to use at any point during your wedding. They’ll pick up the phone, and their voice will be captured. The great thing about this is that you and your future spouse can listen to the messages on every anniversary.

Another great guest book alternative is a vintage-style typewriter where guests are encouraged to write well wishes, words of advice, or just a simple congrats! This idea goes perfectly for those couples who may have something like this in their family, are writers themselves, or who have a vintage theme for their wedding.

Send Postcards

Postcards are a fantastic option for the traveling couple. Put together a display of your favorite postcards and have your guest write a message of their own. Make a custom mailbox to set yourselves apart even more.

Thanks for the Memories

However you decide to remember the guests that attend your wedding, make sure it goes along with your and your fiance’s taste. The biggest question to ask yourselves is, will you be able to put your guest book on display in your own home? Or, will it be something you set aside on a bookshelf collecting dust for years to come? Make a point to review the guest book each year to be flooded with love and memories again and again!
