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 wedding guest book alternatives for you to consider.

Guest Book Globe

Do you and your fiance love traveling (or do you plan on doing so in the future)? If so, consider having a globe as your wedding guest book alternative. A guest book globe is great for so many reasons. One, it can easily become an accent piece in your home. that 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 personalized message. This will make for a great visual guest book of the night. You can use disposable cameras or Complete Weddings + Events offers photo booth rental in Rochester, MN to help make the process easy.

The Rochester 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!

Sign A Picture

If you can get an artist to create a custom-made drawing or painting of you and your other half, that would be a cool and unique guest book alternative. A picture would be a cool new piece of artwork to add to your home once the wedding is all said and done. Some ideas of what the artist could paint are you and your fiance in your wedding attire, including your pet, or a casual outfit. The possibilities are endless!

Sign A Trunk

Are you planning on stashing away your wedding day attire in a box or trunk? If so, bring that for guests to sign! It’s a perfect way to remember and capture all your guests at your wedding. Every time you open the box in the future, you’ll be filled with a gush of nostalgic memories, reading their signatures, and looking at your wedding attire.

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 your wedding guest book each year to be flooded with love and memories again and again.
