Guest Book Ideas

Wedding couples are becoming more imaginative with the ways their guests can give advice and wish them well on their wedding day.  Here are a few alternative options to a traditional guest book setup.

  1. Photos

If you have a photobooth, guests can take a picture and write a message for you to place in your wedding scrapbook.  They can also sign a photo of the bride and groom which can be framed to preserve the wedding memories for years to come.

  1. Wood Slices

Having your guests sign wood slices for the new Mr.  & Mrs. is a pretty decoration they can display in their home for years to come – perfect for a rustic or garden style wedding!

  1. Thumb Prints

A fun twist on a guest book is a portrait of a tree with branches – the guests place their thumbprint on the branches as “leaves” and write their names on the thumbprint.  The completed tree symbolizes the unity of your friends and family through your marriage.

  1. Advice to the Bride and groom

Messages in a bottle are a cute way for the bride and groom to gather advice from their wedding guests.  The messages typically feature words of encouragement and best wishes.

  1. Letters

Having your guests sign the first letter of your married last name makes a wonderful accent for your home, reminding you of your big day and all who were in attendance!

This was a perfect refreshment for a summer wedding at Indian springs golf club in Marlton.

We set up our lemonade stand using our farmhouse rental table with vintage crates, ball jars and seasonal flowers with vines and citrus. The Café Ole dahlias were stunning!

We loved being a part of this sweet couple’s day!  Shifted focus did a great Job capturing the details and flowers.
