When planning my wedding, I decided that I wanted to do things a little unique. Yes, I wanted to follow most of the usual wedding traditions, but I wanted to do them just a little bit differently. What started out as a vintage theme, turned more into just a random assortment of eclectic items that I liked and kind of lost the theme. In the end, I was really happy with how everything came together on my big day.
One thing that I really wanted to do differently was the guest book.
I have been to a number of weddings in the past 2 years, and I honestly cannot remember seeing or signing a guest book. Now, I am someone that saves everything and feels the need to document all that I can, so I knew that a guest book would be important to me. It was important to me to make sure that I found something that my guests would *want* to sign.
While searching for wedding guest book ideas, I found so many amazing alternatives that I had a hard time picking just one.
Here are my 8 favorite wedding guest book alternatives
1.) Wedding Quilt
I just love the idea of a wedding quilt. It is a beautiful keepsake and one that you can actually use to snuggle up on the couch with. Plus there are so many different designs and quilt selections that you can easily find one that will fit your theme. You can purchase a premade quilt, find a funky vintage one, or have one specially made just for your event. There are even some places on Etsy that will send you the squares to display at your reception, and after they are signed, you mail them back and they stitch the quilt together for you.
