There are only a few ways to memorialize your wedding day once it's over-- photographs, video, , and your guest book. Guest books are a great way to get creative, to add your style and personality to your wedding, and to create a memory that you can take with you.
At NJ lakeside wedding venue, Rock Island Lake Club, we set up your guest book on the credenza in the cocktail space for guests to sign as they arrive. One of our wedding coordinators then brings the guest book upstairs to the reception space so that guests who didn't get a chance to sign it during cocktail hour (and a half) can sign it during the reception. This also prevents over crowding!
From benches to polaroids to photo books, the couples at Rock Island Lake Club have had unique and fun ideas for their guest books that don't only look great, but are also functional and can be treasured in their homes for years to come!
Wine Cork Shadow Box
What we love about it: The wine cork shadow box incorporates the couple's love for wine, reuses wine corks rather than throwing them out, and can be used as décor in the couple's home.
What we love about it: You can show off your engagement photos and you can look back at the photos along with all of your guests' notes whenever you want.
What we love about it: It's simple, but awesome to see all of your guests' notes in one place.
What we love about it: What's not to love?! It's so unique, functional, and a conversation starter!
Wedding Family Tree
What we love about it: It's a cool twist on a family tree that represents all of your loved ones that surrounded you on your wedding day. The perfect piece to hang on your wall at home.
Snap a Pic + Leave a Note
What we love about it: You not only get a sweet note from your guests, but also a photo to go with it!
Personalized Jenga Blocks
What we love about it: It's fun and functional (can you tell we love multi-purposing)! Create new memories and reminisce on old ones while playing Jenga with blocks signed by your guests.
Tie your Guest Book into your Wedding Theme
What we love about it: The oar ties perfectly into the couple's lake-themed wedding (and the lakeside wedding venue) and it makes a great statement piece to display at home.
Some more cute guest book ideas that we found online!
We love this idea! It's so different and adds a special extra touch (literally). Just make sure you have a wipe nearby so you don't get ink on your outfit!
If you're looking for a simple, yet different guest book, a jigsaw puzzle is a fun option! You can frame it after or do the puzzle every anniversary.
Get creative and have fun with your wedding guest book! You can look back at your guest book to remember the best day of your life and all of those who were there to celebrate you. Follow Rock Island Lake Club on Instagram and Pinterest for more creative wedding ideas!
