Unique Guestbook Ideas

A guestbook is an amazing way to remember who attended your special day but in reality, how often does a guestbook get pulled out and looked at? Here at Fund Your Wedding, we’ve compiled a list of alternative guest books, some of which can be hung on a wall, used as an ornament, or become part of the furniture. A guestbook should be a keepsake for you both to cherish forever and have you ever thought about what your guest book might say about you?

1. Jigsaw Puzzle Guestbook – etsy

We absolutely love this sentiment ‘Without you, our puzzle isn’t complete.’ What a great way to make your guests feel appreciated and valued. Your friends and family will have so much fun signing parts of the jigsaw and fitting it all together. Once it’s complete, you can frame it and hang it proudly on a wall so you can be reminded of the happy memories every day for the rest of your lives.

2. Vinyl Disc Guestbook

If you’re big into your music, why not have your guests sign an old vinyl disc. These look amazing framed on a wall and to make it even more special, you could even have them sign a vinyl that consists of your first dance song. You can find frames specially designed for vinyl, including album covers, here.

3. Signed Furniture

Why not have your guests sign part of the furniture. You can have the ink sealed so that it doesn’t come off and can keep it indoors or outdoors to remember your special day.

4. Vintage Dictionary Wedding Guestbook

We love this alternative guestbook. Why not transform an old dictionary (try world of books) into a book that holds your nearest and dearests words of wisdom. They can circle a word and state why they chose that word for you. This is something that will certainly stand out from the rest of your books on a bookshelf.

5. Vintage Keys

Again, we love this sentiment, why not get your guests to leave you some marriage advice. There will come a point where you’ll really appreciate their words of wisdom so this is a lovely little keepsake.

Someone took a guest log quite literally but thank God they did because this is such an amazing keepsake and can be placed proudly on a wall for you to reminisce on those treasured memories.

11. Wine Bottle Guestbook

If you enjoy a glass or two of wine, why not ask your guests to sign a bottle (or two.) You can look forward to opening it and celebrating on your first years anniversary. They also make for great photo’s and the bottles can be reused once opened, as candle holders, coin jars, or to plant some houseplants.
