Five Unique Guest Book Ideas

A wed­ding is not com­plete with­out a guest book, because how else will you know who to thank for com­ing? But, how each cou­ple presents their guest book can be totally unique, which we at Lesner Inn LOVE!!! So, for those of you unsure of what you want to do for your guest book, we wanted to help out and share some of our favorite guest book ideas!

For the Wine Fanat­ics
First off, who doesn’t love a lit­tle wine at a wed­ding? Many of our Lesner Inn cou­ples use wine bot­tles in their décor, so why not use them as guest books too? Plus, you can save some money on a guest book by just recy­cling the wine bot­tles that were going to sit in your recy­cling bin any­ways! Have a bot­tle or two on dis­play for your guests to sign with a win­dow marker, and let them share some kind words with you!

For the Music Inspired
Is music a huge part of you and your sig­nif­i­cant other’s rela­tion­ship? Well, whether you play an instru­ment or just jam out to some soul music, we love the idea of hav­ing an acoustic gui­tar laid out for guests to sign or even hav­ing them sign some of your favorite vinyls!

For your Spe­cial Theme
There are lots of ways to have your guest book reflect the theme of your wed­ding! If it’s a rus­tic or wood­land inspired wed­ding, you could use nat­ural cut wood or a wooden let­ter of your new last name. If you’re more of a Gatsby gal though, add some black lace to a book or pil­low and give the guests a feather pen to write their love with!

If you and your fiancé love to travel, this one is just for you! Put a map of the world in a pic­ture frame and let your guests sign on their favorite city. You could even use a globe and let your guests have fun spin­ning it around to find the coun­try or city they want to sign!

For the Crafty Orig­i­nals
There are so many options with this one! Whether it be quilt pieces that you sew together after your big day, let­ters that guests write and place in a mail­box, or hav­ing guests take a Polaroid and place it in a scrap­book to rem­i­nisce on, any of these options will let you and your guests bring out their crafti­ness!
