Spotlight on Guest Books

I love a traditional guest book album as much as the next person, but sometimes it's nice to change things up. So today we thought it'd be fun to spotlight some more unusual guest book ideas. Enjoy!

This romantic silhouette poster is so darling that whether guests sign it or not, you really could hang it in a fun part of your house as a fabulous memento of your wedding day.  (Source: Maxim Creative Invites)
Look closely and you'll see that the leaves on this wedding tree are actually thumbprints. An included sign asks guests to "leaf" their mark and a signature. Love the idea-- just make sure you have an easy, accessible way for people to clean their green thumbs so no pretty clothes get stained! (Source: Lovliday)

The postcards as guestbook idea is super easy-- what makes this one extra cute is the actual mailbox used for delivery! (Source: The Knot)

This creative chain-link guestbook requires just a little bit of work from an attendant. On one side of each slip of paper are song lyrics from love songs, and the other side is notes from guests that the attendant linked together. Love the delicate symbolism. (Source: The Knot)

This one isn't so much a creative use of paper as it is a creative idea. In lieu of a traditional guestbook, this couple had a time capsule at their wedding. Notes written by guests weren't opened until the couple's first anniversary! (Source: The Knot)
