WEDDING GUEST BOOKS – UNIQUE OR TRADITIONAL?

One of the most popular accessories for your wedding will probably be a wedding guest book. You can choose to go with a traditional style of guest book or you can choose one of the more popular and unique forms of guest signatures.  The guest book is typically placed at the entrance to the wedding reception where your family and friends can sign their names and maybe a brief comment to let you know that they attended and that they wish you the best.

Since many wedding receptions can include a large number of guests it can be difficult for the bride and groom to know which of their invited guests were able to attend. After all the festivities of their special day, the bride and groom will want a keepsake that they can cherish that will include a list of all their friends and family who shared their celebration. Having a book or other item that the guests can sign is one way of capturing those memories.
