A question we often hear at Weddings by Lumi is “what is a wedding guest book used for and do I really need one?”. Whilst we maybe a little biased, the simple answer is yes! A wedding guest book is a way to record well wishes and advice for the future and makes a great keepsake from the day to look back through in years to come (especially when stored in a matching wedding keepsake box
along with other mementos from the day). The wedding guest book has come along way from a traditional book and there is a huge amount of choice including guest book alternatives.
Here are our top 5 wedding guest book alternatives:
A modern guest book alternative and a feature at the wedding breakfast, these drop top frames allow the guests to write their initials or names on a shape and post through a hole in the top of the frame. The frame fills up like a Plinko game creating a bit of fun and once full is ready to be displayed at home.
A fun and interactive guest book alternative allowing your guests to sign or write small messages on jigsaw pieces and build the jigsaw as they go. Although traditionally made from wood, we have a selection of guest book puzzles including a super modern frosted acrylic ready to be signed with a Sharpie.
- Fingerprint tree wedding guest book
Create a beautiful piece of art with your guests by using fingerprints to create a tree of fingerprint leaves. Truly a unique piece of art and ready to be proudly displayed at home. Just make sure to supervise young guests and keep the ink away from your beautiful dress!
- Wedding guest book building blocks
Another super fun interactive guest book alternative and sure to get all the guests joining in. Each guest can sign or write a message on a wooden block and build a tower. Just make sure you don’t topple the tower or else you’ll have to shout “Jenga”!
Choose either a photo of the couple or print a design with your names and wedding details to be surround by guest signatures and well wishes. With a wide choice of traditional frames, modern box frames or frameless acrylic to choose from making a lovely keepsake of the day.
As you can see there is a wedding guest book out there for everyone. At Weddings by Lumi you will find a choice of traditional wedding guest books in a range of materials. Choosing a guest book with a wooden cover
or acrylic cover
is a great way to elevate the humble guest book whilst we have a range of guest book alternatives if you are looking for something a little different.
A Weddings by Lumi top tip
– get your Ushers involved by passing your guest book around at the wedding breakfast and again at the evening reception to ensure all your guests have the opportunity to write their comments, and why not pair your guest book with a matching wedding post box
for the gift table to gather all cards and monetary donations and keep them in a safe place.
Remember we love to see your ideas come to life so don’t forget to tag and share your wedding guest book and gift table photos with us at @weddingsbylumi across social media platforms.
