3 Adorable Alternatives to the Traditional Guest Book
As non-traditional traditionalists, we understand the desire to want to make your wedding completely your own, with little details that show-off your personality. A guest book is the perfect way to do just that. Moving away from the traditional photo book with lined pages for messages from guests, these alternatives will ensure that your guest book will put your quirks on display and give you and your significant other a perfect keepsake.
1. Message in a Bottle. Instead of signing a book, guests can write message on individual pieces of parchment and leave them for you in a bottle. You can even turn it into a fun activity by asking your guests to get creative and leave you with fun and unusual date night ideas. Then, on your next date night, you and your spouse can choose one message from the bottle, and you must complete that activity. Depending on the size of your wedding, this can give you date night ideas for years to come.
2. Jenga fun. Turn guest sign-ins into a fun game. You can request that guests leave you general messages of well wishes, date night ideas, or pieces of advice for your marriage on individual blocks. These completed messages can be kept in a vase (as shown below) to display in your house or you can use the pieces to play. If you have any Gorilla Glue, you can create a Jenga Sculpture for a more permanent Jenga solution.
3. Just the fingerprint. These handmade guest books require a thumbprint and signature from your guests in order to create a wonderful work of art. Check out all the designs by Bleu de Toi on Etsy.
