The fourth installment of our 2012 wedding trends series takes a looks at the new direction of guestbook keepsakes. Moving away from the traditional guestbook’s found in stores, we will be seeing more personal and custom interpretations.
Thumb tree guestbook’s started appearing at the end of 2011 and is such a fun idea that we are sure that we will be seeing more of these print trees! An in-expensive alternative, all you need is a picture of a tree, illustrated or photographed, and a pad of ink!
Another way to change the ordinary guestbook is by giving each guest a piece of paper or cue card to write either a marriage tip or date night idea. The newlyweds are then able to arrange these cards into a book for an endless resource of ideas from their family and friends.
If you’re a puzzle couple select one of your engagement photos to turn into a custom puzzle. Have your guest’s sign the backs of the puzzle pieces and you’ll have a wonderful and unique keepsake.
One of our favourite custom ideas has to be the guitar guestbook. A little more expensive this keepsake is great for any couple whose love also involves music. Ranging from custom guitars to inexpensive second hand guitars, all you need in addition is a pen and you’ll have a piece of art for your new home.
All That Glitters Inc. Wedding Planning and Design introduced us to the “When did we meet board” Perfect for any wedding, or social get together, all you need is a pin board and a few pieces of paper. Have your guests write down when you met with a little note and tack it to the pin board. Globe Trotter? Why not have a map, with “Where did we meet?” as an alternative.
Mab Libs are a great source of entertainment and we love the idea of creating a Guest Lib for your guests to fill out! Guaranteed they will be a hit at the reception while guests have fun with their best wedding advice to the Bride and Groom.
