DIY Wedding Guestbook Alternative

I know my wedding was aaaages ago now but I thought this was a nice DIY that I could share with everyone. Instead of opting for a traditional guest book I wanted something that wouldn’t get shoved onto a shelf and rarely looked at. It didn’t take long to see this idea on Pinterest – usually it was done so that guests would print their own finger print on a tree or the back of the bike. However, I’m a control freak so visions of a lopsided arrangement of balloons on the back of the bike didn’t sit well with me! Plus I’m no detective so deciphering finger prints isn’t my forte and I wanted to be able to look at the tree and see instantly who had been there on our big day.

The Hotel that hosted us did a great job of going around to each table just after dinner to get people to sign the print. The print now happily resides on the wall of our sitting room and is a lovely reminder of the people who were present to celebrate our happy day.diy wedding guest book ideas wedding guest book ireland wedding guest book sign diy guest book alternative wedding guestbook alternative wedding guest signing books

And in the spirit of sharing here’s the bike guest book template I made – you can edit the bottom to include your own names and date but I’ve done the hard work of adding the balloons for you!

  1. Jennifer I’l check I think it was bigger than a4 but it wasn’t a3, was it poster?! I’ll check the frame. I got it printed at the local print shop that did some invites for us so its a heavy cream card I got it printed on, makes it a little sturdier when its being passed around without the glass front on!

    1. Thanks! I have loads more little things I did to try and make our day a little different to your regular hotel wedding, I don’t know if anyone noticed on the day but I had fun preparing! Congrats on your impending nuptials, its a truly wonderful day and experience and marriage isn’t half bad either!!!!

  2. Oh I love this idea so much!!! I don’t think I’ll ever get married (the other half is a pain in the bum about not fixing what isnt broken) but I’d love to try this for some other occasion. It reminds me of ‘Up’, the Disney Pixar movie 🙂 So beautiful.
