14 Creative Wedding Guest Book Ideas to Get You Inspired

by Ariel Dreicer
guest book and succulents

At Joy, we know your wedding isn’t just about you and your fiancé, it’s about all of the people you love coming together to celebrate. But between running off for photo ops, cutting the cake, and dancing the night away, you probably won’t get to spend much one-on-one time with each guest. That’s where your wedding guest book comes in. Your guest book captures all of that extra love and wisdom your friends and family are dying to shower on you on your big day, and becomes a beautiful keepsake of the event. Choose a guest book that reflects the style and theme of your wedding, and  feel free to get creative.

Here are some of our favorite wedding guest book ideas that go beyond the traditional.

Photo Guest Book

Set up a photo booth, or leave out a Polaroid camera. Invite your guests to paste their photo into a guest book, or pin it up on a board with a little note to the happy couple

World Map/Atlas

Use this opportunity to mine your guests for travel ideas. You and your partner will have a blast going through the book after the weekend’s over.
