Guest books

Remember your day by having your guests pen their thoughts to you. Prompt them with a question or two or leave them to write their own memories.

Unique
Ben & Katie's gorgeous wedding as featured on Snippet & Ink had many original touches including a "photo booth" with a pretty fabric background. Guests wrote messages to the couple on small chalkboards, creating a unique and fun guest book!

Crystal & Ben loaded up a vintage type-writer with an extra long roll of paper for guests to type messages. See more of their pretty garden inspired wedding at Brooklyn Bride.

Put your favourite bottle of wine and a metallic marker out for guests to sign. You will love remembering the day when you open the wine on an anniversary!Image: Southern Weddings Magazine

Individual notes
Set out piles of pretty paper as well as little stickers and a mix of pens. Guests write their messages on the paper, roll it, seal it with a sticker and drop it into a vase or pretty box.Source & image: Martha Stewart

Have guests write messages on individual note cards (you could also include mini envelopes) and have them drop their cards into this cute holder. For large weddings, have one per table.

From Pink Frosting.

This stunning birdcage is beautiful for capturing notes and well-wishes. Use it after the wedding for Birthday and Christmas cards- you will always look over and smile at the happy words inside!

This
guest book captures guests memories and keeps them just for the bride and groom! Featuring 150 individual note cards and 132 envelopes for guests to tuck their notes inside.
Available from Pink Frosting.

Wishing Trees
I love this idea which originates from a Dutch custom. Create your own by placing branches in a vase and decorate according to the event theme. Supply guests with paper or card tags for them to write their notes which they then tie with ribbon or peg onto the tree to create an amazing feature at the reception.Images: Here Comes The Bride
