Guest Book Alternatives


One of the best ways to add some personalization to 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 fiancé are known for traveling (or you plan on doing so in the future), consider having a globe as your guest book alternative. It’s 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! Having each guest add a photo of themselves to a scrapbook with their signature and their personalized message is a great visual guest book of the night. You can use disposable cameras or Complete Weddings + Events offers photo booths 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! Plus, Complete Springfield’s enclosed photo booth also has a video message option. Therefore, after guests take pictures, they get to leave you a quick video message with well wishes, advice, or memories. 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.

FeteFone is a 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 your anniversary.

Bible Guestbook

For religious couples using a bible for a guestbook can be something special to look back on. Instead of having your guests just sign a blank page that you will rarely take time to read again instruct your guests to highlight their favorite memory verse and sign next to it. Now, every time you take out your bible to read you will stumble upon your family and friends’ favorite memory verses.

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!
