It may seem like a small part of your big day, but your guest book is an important aspect, and there are so many different ways you can collect lovely messages from your friends and family! Here are just a few of our favourites.
Love Heart Frame
We love this simple and creative idea! A simple frame and small wooden love hearts that all your guests can sign before dropping into the frame. After your big day all your need to do is find a special place in your home to display the frame, and it will be a regular reminder of your best day. There are lots of lovely designs out there, but we really love this one...and we’d definitely recommend checking out Etsy for other wedding bits and pieces, it’s a great way to support local businesses, just like Emily’s Lollies!

The meaning behind this guest book idea is just beautiful. As the Bride and Groom, your names and wedding date can be engraved into the centre, and all your guests need to do is take a piece, and write a message. After your wedding you can spend an afternoon putting all the pieces together to create the finished jigsaw. It’s a beautiful way of bringing all your friends and family together into one perfect memory from your wedding day.

The best thing about this guest book is how funny it will be looking at the photos after your wedding...especially as the night goes on! Your guests can fill an entire book with their photos and messages of well wishes and marriage top tips, and at the end of it you have a keepsake that you can get out and have a giggle at whenever you want. There are many ways of achieving a Polaroid album, there are companies out there who can manage the whole thing for you. Or you can DIY it, by getting your own Polaroid camera and photo album, check out this bundle on Currys!
A wedding guest book you can turn into a game? We love it! A Jenga Block wedding guest book. Pull a block, write your message and then stack it on top...without knocking it over. It’s a really creative way for your guests to leave you well wishes and congratulations, plus it’ll give everyone a little laugh as the tower grows taller! Just make sure you have enough blocks for all your guests to write a message.
