If you're into the concept of capturing a snapshot of those who attended your wedding, a wedding guestbook is ideal. But you don't have to settle for one of those padded, white, crystal-covered books with a feather pen. You can literally have your guests sign anything you want! Or give you advice, participate in an art project, or one of these killer unconventional wedding guestbooks.

We're talking Harry Potter houses, book-lovers' library cards, a chic globe (that I'd want in my house anyway!), clear acrylic puzzle pieces, and Instax snaps in a cute AF book. The world is your guestbook oyster. Here are some recent I wanted to share…

  1. Awesome, I love alternative guest books.
    Im terrible at writing something down on a blank page (this includes cards too) i never know what to write.
    We opted for an activity book for our own wedding to help our guests get to know each other with games, puzzles colouring in and a Rupaul paper doll :p
    Love all these ideas in this post too.
    The thing i love about this site, is its so supportive to the philosophy or you do you.
