News Alert! As if you didn’t already know, weddings are expensive. Between the major purchases, such as the venue, photographer, videographer, cater, cake, clothes, [deep breath]… the list goes on and on! And let’s not forget the small, minuscule items. that are just kind-of required. A guest book is one of those small things. To tell you the truth, it might be the last thing on most bride and groom’s mind, but the wedding guest book has come a far way from just the traditional ‘write you name on the line’ kind of book. Think beyond the typical guest book. Not only are these great ways to put those engagement pictures to good use, but also super unique ideas that add an extra special personalized touch to your wedding.
You might have seen this idea on a lot of crafting websites. Not only are they interactive, but the design possibilities are endless. It’s pretty simple and you can get as creative as you want with this idea, which is why we love it! It’s a great way to include friends and family in your special day, but it also act as a double bonus as the perfect wall décor for your home. Plus, you can easily download premade designs at reasonable prices. Here’s how to set it up at the venue, lay out a pinwheel ink pad with instructions for guest to leave their fingerprint and signature and/or message (optional) on the canvas. It’s as simple as that! Be sure to leave out wet wipes so guests can easily cleanup.
The perfect alternative for the budget conscious couple. This unique personal memento is easy to create using your favorite photo and allows you to stretch your dollar a little bit further. Customize your puzzle by adding your names and wedding date. Lay the puzzle pieces out on a table and instruct guests to sign their name and their well wishes. After they’re done, have them drop the pieces into a box. When the wedding is over, put the puzzle together and have it framed for a special personalized keepsake, perfect for a table top or wall (depending on the size).
What better way to connect with your guest then asking them to share a special moment in their life. We love this idea because it’s super unique and something that you probably haven’t seen at a wedding. Personalize a 12-month calendar with your engagement pictures for each month and fill in the date for major milestones in your relationship; first date, engagement, wedding date, move in date. Then display your custom calendar and ask your guests to sign their names on their birthday and/or anniversary.
