Pin It Tuesday: Guest Book Edition

I love the idea of using something different for a guest book at a reception. I think its a really nice conversation starter for your guests and you can end up with a really nice momento or artwork, instead of a book that will get stashed away somewhere. Here are some of my favorite unique guest book pins.

Guest Book Idea  Advent Calender Style  A Practical Wedding: Ideas for Unique, DIY, and Budget Wedding Planning
An advent calendar style guest book....This would be so fun to open one a month to see what guests had to say!

love - I could see you wrapping a string, to create the unique heart.

Create a string heart and have guests sign around the canvas

wedding quilt. All the guests sign squares of fabric to be sewn together.

This type of item could be used as something functional or something decorative.

Personalized Wedding Guest Book Signature Orbs  by OnceUponaPaper, $180.00
This type of art work would look so great mixed in with a variety of gallery style artwork.

We emptied wine bottles and made custom labels for our anniversaries. Our guests wrote notes to us and stuffed them in the wine bottles, which we'll crack open and read on our upcoming anniversaries." The couple also had a thumbprint tree guest book, painted by a friend, and calendars on which guests were encouraged to note their birthdays, anniversaries and other special dates.
Probably my favorite idea:  Have guests write advice or notes and stuff them into bottles.  Crack open a bottle and read the notes on the corresponding year anniversary.

Guitar as a guest book alternative. So fun. Pretty sure we're doing this with film reels. #cedarwoodweddings
This could be done with any object from a shared love or hobby:  skateboards, surf boards, books, etc.

Fun and functional!  Never miss a birthday!!

Guestbook idea by Ilse
These would be fun to read & re-read each time you break out Jenga!

Bench "Guestbook" idea
Such a wonderful keepsake for your home or your yard.

Unique guest sign in book alternative... get a Canvas on an easel everyone sign the back and later everyone paint their color stroke- abstract work of art.
Abstract decor:  Have guests paint a stroke to create something really lovely.  Then have them sign the back!

Guestbook idea..
Paint swatches cut into squares for guests to sign.  When its completed assemble the squares in a random or not so random order and frame it.  You could even add your favorite quote using peel and stick scrapbook letters/stickers!
