Four Clever Twists on a Wedding Guestbook

April 27, 2016 | Posted in Trends, Weddings

At some point during your wedding reception you’ll want your guests to leave their best wishes – or words of advice – somewhere special. That’s where the guestbook comes in handy. Like most wedding traditions, guestbooks have gotten a modern day upgrade.

Our New Jersey brides and grooms have transformed their guestbooks into wildly creative treasures that friends and family are delighted to personalize. Here are four unique ideas for a different kind of wedding guestbook that any of our Hotels Unlimited venues can accommodate.

For the couple who desires a meaningful and truly personal touch, having a custom designed aisle runner makes the most of both parts of their wedding: ceremony and reception. This couple exchanged their vows on their aisle runner, and then invited guests to sign it after the wedding. The elegant monogram with their wedding date and names is a beautiful touch.


For one newlywed couple, a large letter representing their new last name was a perfect fit for a guestbook. We imagine that once it’s hung in just the spot in the house, it’ll be a perfect way to pay homage to their special day.


This New Jersey bride and groom used a shared love of music as a vehicle for a guestbook. How incredibly cool and clever is this guitar? You can see the excitement just from the happy thoughts of the guests scrawled all across the wood. (Just be sure that if you do pick such a personal item, it’s something you won’t mind having people write on!)


Your guestbook might also have a practical use all year round. A colorful calendar, set of pens, and clever instructions were the basis of this couple’s calendar guestbook, which helped keep track of loved ones’ birthdays.

When it comes to wedding guestbooks, one rule of thumb applies: if your guests can write on it and it’s meaningful to you, then go with it! Get more ideas by viewing photos from our Versailles weddings, or contact us for a tour.
