11 Guest Book Alternatives That Are As Unique As You Are

When you’re tending to all details of planning a wedding, it’s easy for the guest book to become just an afterthought.  There are dresses to buy, cakes to taste, and couples cocktails to create! Who cares about a stupid book?

Well, you should care. If chosen cleverly, guest books can both entertain your guests and become life-long keepsakes.  And sometimes they don’t have to be books at all…

Here are 11 guest book alternatives that really jump off the page. 

1. Game Day

Turn back time on your anniversary and look through the postcards your friends wrote you on your wedding day.

8. Words of Love

These wedding Mad Libs are a great pre-dinner distraction for that one table full of shy strangers.  Sure beats awkwardly stating your relationship to the bride while you wait for the buffet to open.
