Ten DIY Guestbook Ideas

By  | 

Weddings are a pricey business, you don’t need us to tell you that! But instead of stating the obvious we’re here to help with all the other details including where to save money and make it go that little further. Today we’re looking at do it yourself guestbooks, because we all love something to look back on once the big day is well and truly over. Don’t worry if you’re not a fully fledged advanced DIY-er there’s something here for everyone and lots of very clever and inspirational ideas, too!

From top, left to right:

1. Kicking off with an easy place to start, a downloadable printout! (Yes, it’s still considered DIY!) As your guests to complete the little cards with their advice such as, ‘We wish you…’ and ‘A helpful hint.’ Grab the download over at Marry This.

2. Set up an old typewriter and ask your guests to leave notes by typing them out, such a fun idea! Image by Rebekah Murray via Capitol Romance.

3. Incredibly easy but super cute! Collect rocks or pebbles and leave them out with a Sharpie for your guests to sign. There are so many ways to display them in your home after your wedding. Idea via Something Turquoise.

4. Now this is quirky! A wedding piñata, we can imagine the fun you and your hubby will have opening that! Get the DIY guide at Something Turquoise.

5. A modern take on the Polaroid camera, simply ask your guests to take a pic, leave a message and pop it in your very own guestbook with some washi tape, super simple! Image by Golden Hour Studios via Ruffled Blog.

6. Another way to display your guest instant photos is on a washing line type arrangement, we think this would look fab in your home, constant hours of memory making images to brighten any dull day! Image by Vela Images via Polka Dot Bride.

7. There’s nothing a Sharpie can’t handle! Make a unique guestbook set up in your home by asking guests to sign a set of pretty plates. Image via Martha Stewart Weddings.

8. Simple and to the point, a date jar for guests to leave their ideas inside. Image via Something Turquoise.

9. Especially for all the crafters we adore the wedding quilt idea. Ask your guests to sign a square of fabric that later you transform into a unique quilt! Image by Robert McNary via Style Me Pretty.

10. Lastly a simple way of recycling your wine bottles! Add a pretty label to each bottle with 1, 5, 10 and 15 on them, and open them on those anniversaries. Image by Danielle Poff via Wedding Chicks.
