Alternative Guest Book Ideas

When my husband, Daniel, and I got married I definitely used Pinterest for ideas. However, in 2014 I don’t think Pinterest was as full of unique and trendy ideas as it is now. Fast forward to now, being at weddings with my couples and talking wedding with my brides, I’ve seen some pretty amazing alternative guest book ideas. Here are some ideas from my past couples!

#1. A TABLE / FURNITURE

Ebony and Trevor used a table for their guest book. Ebony’s brother made the table and they had it out for guests to sign. They have the table sitting in the sun room of their new home and it’s such a gorgeous centerpiece!

#2. DATE IDEAS

If you’re an adventurous couple like Katy and Josh, in lieu of a guest book choose to have their guests leave notes and ideas for adventurous dates.
