The tradition of a wedding guest book began many hundreds of years ago.  There was a need for testimony of those in attendance to the covenant of the marriage.  Those signing their names would be testifying to the reality of the marriage. The term “book” has taken on many forms.  Brides and grooms may choose to have guests record thoughts, wishes and advice, or simply a signature. We will discuss some unique ways to add a personalized touch to your guest book! 


Thumbprint Guest Book

Have your guest leave their thumb prints and signature on a canvas!


Photo Book Guest Book

Display your favorite photos of you two with a space for handwritten notes!


DIY Polaroid Guest Book

Guests will enjoy taking quick snaps of themselves, after they can write well wishes for the bride and groom!


Canvas Print Guest Book

Use a large canvas print as your guest book, after your guest sign it, take it home and display it in your home!


Quilt Guest Book

Friends and loved ones will leave well wishes to the couple on squares of fabric, that will later be quilted together and displayed!
