I’ll just say it. I’m not a fan of the traditional wedding guest book. I imagine looking at it once after the wedding and not again until I find it in a box while moving. Seems like a giant waste, but that’s just my opinion.
I want to have something, just not a book. I want something unique. Something that we can display and look at on a daily basis. It would be so much more ‘us’.
My cousins had their guests sign an antique pair of skis and a friend did the same with snowshoes. Love it, except I can’t think of something like that that Spencer and I share. Beer signs? Connor? A piece of siding from our house? Blah.
So I started searching for inspiration.
The obvious, photo booth, was the first thing that came to mind. It’s genius to check the guestbook and the ‘take home’ off the list with one expense. BTW, do they let you set those things up on an uneven front yard?
How about a homemade one instead?
Probably my favorite. But, do guests get a copy of the photo? Does someone have to staff the camera?
Signing Jenga blocks is a really cute idea except that I HATE Jenga so it would be just as useless as a book.
A tree with thumbprints. Now that would look good on my living room wall. But, it looks kind of messy, don’t you think? Maybe it would be different in a reception hall with access to plenty of bathroom sinks.
Pretty but what do you do with it after the wedding?
Hours of searching and I’m still not convinced. You know our theme, you’ve seen some of my inspiration pieces, got a guest book idea for us? We need help.
