Imagine this: the wedding ceremony is over, and your guests have arrived to your reception, excited and ready to celebrate your wedding day with you. When they walk in the door, they’re greeted with all the unique, personal details that you’ve added to make this wedding truly you: from those DIY escort cards you slaved over to the Pinterest-worthy hanging decorations. But before the party can truly start, your guests will have to sign your guest book — and you’ve made your guest book so awesome and memorable, that they’re talking about it even after the wedding is over.
Sounds great, right? Well, that scenario doesn’t have to be purely imaginary — in fact, it’s fairly easy to turn into a reality! A personal and unique guest book can make a great first impression on guests and set the whole tone for your wedding reception. Here’s some of our favorite ideas:
1. A signature plate
This is one plate that won’t be on your registry, but we guarantee you’ll keep and cherish it just as much as that new china set. For less than $50, you can engrave your names, wedding date, or custom wedding logo on a beautiful, signature plate that guests can sign their names on.
Once your wedding is over, this plate is the perfect piece of new art for your dining room, or could even be used to serve your guests when they’re over for dinner!
2. Engraved jewelry box
An elegant jewelry box looks great on both your guest sign-in table and on your vanity at home. Engrave the jewelry box with a special quote, your new monogram, or whatever feels best to you. Guests can write you little notes and slip them inside the box when they’re done.
After the wedding, you’ll love reading through the happy thoughts and well wishes your guests shared with you!
3. A photo canvas
If you’re looking for a guest book option that’s visually impactful and totally personal, having your guests sign a photo canvas featuring your favorite engagement photo is a great option.
It’s a lot less complicated than it sounds too — all you have to do is upload a photo and order the canvas. Et voila! You now have a new piece of art that will be made even more special with your wedding guests’ love notes. We made our own wedding-inspired canvas the other day, and it was just silly how easy it was. Bonus: it arrived just a few days after we submitted the order!
