You’ll love these creative wedding guest book alternatives

Choosing the wedding guest book is one of those day-of details you’ll keep forever. If flipping through an old book isn’t really your style, there are plenty of wedding guest book alternatives to use instead! From wall art to photo books to quilts, almost anything can be a guest book that you’ll love. These are our 12 favorite wedding guest book alternatives. You can add at least half these ideas to your Home Depot wedding registry list, too (score!).

1. Photo guest book

Want a guest book alternative that isn’t too far off? Create a wedding photo book! You can include photos of you and your fiancé throughout your relationship. Just make sure to leave room on each page for your guests to sign. This idea, much like adding a wedding dais to your reception, could also help breathe new life into your budget.

2. Wooden letter

Wall art is a pretty common theme in wedding guest book alternatives, but it doesn’t need to be a signed photo! Get a large wooden letter for your new last names for your guests to sign. So gorgeous next to big wedding bouquets, we say!

3. Rustic tree sign

4. Illustrative tree sign
