Super easy & fun alternatives to the guest book

The guest book, what can I say. It’s a lot of work, one wedding recently I started it as guests sat down for dinner, half an hour later I was just on the second table and I had another 13 to get through. Now while it meant I could keep an eye during the dinner service I actually didn’t finish getting it signed until 2am.  The problems arise as people don’t know what to write and insist on going back through it to see what everyone before them has written. Also there’s too much space, a brief message suffices not your life story.

So here’s my four best alternatives, some of which I’ve worked with, people enjoy and will have your guests queuing up to sign..

The photo booth


The ultimate interactive party guest book, you provide the frame and the extras.

Hire one or do your own, it’s very easy and great fun, The mot economical way is to get an old (large) picture frame and someone to hang it for you (I can and have done all of these) & supply a Polaroid or instant camera. These along with a box of tricks with hats, feather boa’s, masks and any costume jewellery or head gear you can find will give you photos which will leave you smiling and smirking for many years to come.

leave a blank album beside with some Pritt stick where guests can paste their photos in & sign their best wishes. FUN FUN FUN!!!

The picture Frame matte

Get a large picture of yourself and your partner and  surround it with a white cardboard matte



Leave this on a pedestal somewhere in sight with some felt pens and ask all guests to sign it. You can later get if framed and have it hanging somewhere where you can see it every day.


Becoming popular are providing Jenga blocks or jigsaws




The Table Plan

As guests find their seats leave some felt pens and suggest they sign around the plan which you can take away later and have framed.
