Your wedding guest book is a great way to look back and reminisce on your special day and with whom you shared it with! Traditionally, there is a book at the welcome table where guests are able to sign their names and perhaps write a sweet congratulatory note. But what happens to most of these books? They are stored away with other wedding keep sakes and often forgotten about on a bookshelf. Why not have a unique spin on this wedding tradition to make it fun for guests and more memorable for the bride and groom! And if you can customize the guest book to match your unique personalities, even better! Whether you are marathon movie watchers, outdoor adventure seekers or puzzle lovers, there is a unique guest book idea for each couple.
Below are 10 unique guest book ideas that everyone is sure to enjoy!
