Wedding Guestbook Ideas - Welcome to the World of Guestbooks!

Updated: May 1, 2023

Need some inspiration for your guestbook?

Wedding guestbooks are a traditional must have at weddings. They're the perfect gift for you to keep and remember the amazing day you had. I mean, who wouldn't want to read back the lovely messages left behind by guests?

But what is a guestbook? Is it really a book? Keep reading to delve deeper and find the perfect one for your wedding day!

Do I Need a Guestbook?

There is no rule saying that you must have a guestbook at your wedding, but we feel like it's a lovely touch and one worth considering.

Let's visit the pros first:

  • It's a keepsake for you to cherish forever, allowing your guests to leave heartfelt messages to you both that you can always look back on.

  • It's a great way to remember who celebrated your special day with you.

The best thing about them is, there are so many different options out there!

Now the cons:

  • Well, what's not to love?!

So what are other couples doing?

We took to our Instagram stories and asked our lovely followers to share what they were using or used for their guestbooks.

We found popular choices were related to travel. One couple are using a world map for people to pin and write something about why. Another couple plans to use a globe for people to write their messages on. We think this is the perfect idea for those who enjoy travelling and want to incorporate this into their special day.

Another idea couples love are photo guestbooks, with instant photos and photo booth pictures being a big hit.

If instant photos are your thing, why not set up a selfie station and pair it with our Personalised Guestbook?

If you'd rather have a photo booth, you can check out our Epic Retro Photo Booth Packages that come with an album for guests to sign, which you can upgrade to our personalised album for a small fee!

Alternatively, you could hire our Copper Backdrop Selfie Station, which comes with a personalised selfie board perfect for your special day and florals to decorate.

Another popular response is a phone where you can leave a voicemail and we have just that!

With 3 packages to choose from, you can add a little bit of retro history with 21st-century technology inside! It's the perfect alternative to a traditional guestbook for your guests to leave you a message that you can keep and listen to forever.

Epic Shop

You can then display the frame around your house as a reminder of your special day and those who shared it with you. This comes in a standard size of 56cm x 46cm but if you're after a different size, please get in touch.

Why not make your guest book a little more exciting with our Personalised Heart Drop Frame?
