Innovative Guest Book Ideas

I’ve been trying and trying to find something that works with my event to use as a guest book.  No luck yet but here are some amazing ideas I have seen along the way!


So fun for a literary couple or someone looking for that perfect vintage/mod combination.  Love the idea of this – not so sure if I’d trust my guests not to mess up?

Photo Guest Books

Absolutely perfect if you are having a photobooth.  You could also use a Polaroid camera and designated picture-taker.

Fill-In Sheets of Memories

I’m partial to this one because I love the idea of people writing personal memories and illustrations.  It’s a bit cutesy for my event however {it would be PERFECT for a shower}.

Cards in Pockets

Beautiful, especially with gorgeous letterpress cards as seen here via Brides.  Pro: cute and easy.  Con: it’s not really a new idea.


The Wish Tree

Very beautiful – but how on earth would I get it home???

A Bowl

I. LOVE. THIS.  It’s perfect.  Too bad it’s $1,800.

The Scrapbook

The so-far-favorite-but-it-doesn’t-work idea.  A) I love to scrapbook and so do a lot of my girlfriends, but B) it just doesn’t scream elegant to me (not like that bowl up there that I covet).

What are you doing for your guest book?  Anyone have ideas for one that is vintage and elegant but incorporates handmade elements?
