Usually, traditional wedding guestbooks are stored away on a bookshelf after the wedding and are barely ever touched after that. Want your guestbook to have a different fate? Here are some creative options that wont gather dust on that shelf.
If you and your significant other are always looking for your next travel destination, instead of blessings have guests leave detailed recommendations for future trips. You’ll get first hand advice on a destination that you might not have previously thought about or known anything about and can go back to that travel tip jar every-time you are planning your next getaway.
Message In A Bottle
Another fun way to have your guests leave you little memories from your wedding day is via the good old message in a bottle. You can find a pretty bottle or jar for the notes to be put in and then you can put it on display on a shelf in your house after the wedding. This will probably make for a nice decoration filled with memories and a cute way for guests to write their well wishes down.
Marriage Wisdom Stones
These stones are a cute way to get advice on how to keep things “off the rocks”. The stones could also make for a great decoration somewhere in your house and will serve as a constant reminder of your wedding day and all the advice your family and friends give you. If you ever need a pick-me-up or a reminder not to sweat the small things, read some of the stones your guests wrote on.
Ask guests to write little notes for you to read in the years to come. You can have one box with one anniversary on it or a few different boxes and your guests can choose which box they want to put their note in. Don’t open the box until the specified anniversary and you’ll have something to look forward to when the time comes.
You can ask your guests to bring a postcard with them to the reception or you can collect different postcards leading up to your wedding day and have those ready for guests to sign. Postcards are a fun way to collect personal mementos from your wedding guests. Plus, it will be fun for you to look through all the different postcards your guests write on.
Date Night Advice
Ask your guests to give you some ideas for date nights. With a wide range of people attending your wedding you’ll be sure to get some unique and fun ideas for dates that you wouldn’t have thought of before. Try to go on every date that’s written down!
This alternative to the traditional guestbook is perfect for adventurous couples. Have your guests write down different ideas or adventures they think you and your partner would enjoy. Then, complete the list in your lifetime. You’ll be sure to make some great memories and get out of your comfort zone.
