First, allow me to say, Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Many brides are changing things up a bit when it comes to their wedding. One of the things they are changing up is the wedding guestbook. Many brides are looking for an alternative to the traditional wedding guestbook. They want change, something that has more of a fun touch. If that sounds like you, take a look at the three alternatives to the boring wedding guestbook below.
Business Style Cards with a Glass Vase
One of the alternatives you can go with is the business style cards with a glass vase. Allow me to explain exactly what this is. You order the business style cards with your and your spouse-to-be’s names on it. For example, you could have “Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. John Doe” on the front of the cards. Then on the back, the wedding guest can write a short message to you and sign their names. Beside these cards, you will have a beautiful glass vase for them to place the cards in after they have signed them. You can also decorate the vase if you want, or monogram it with your initials.
3×5 Stock Cards with a 3×5 Photo Album
Another alternative is to have 3×5 stock cards printed with your initials or some type of simple message on it. The guest can then write a message to you and your new hubby. Once they have wrote the message on the card, they can slip it in a slot in the photo album. You can also decorate the photo album. This is not only a beautiful way to set up your guestbook style table, but it is also an easy way for you to go through and read the cards.
Set Up a Video Camera
The third alternative I would like to introduce is the video camera. How neat would it be to set up a video camera that people can record their congrats messages to you on? In an area in the reception, you could set up a video camera and let everyone know to press record and record their message to the two of you. You could also designate someone to operate the camera the entire time. This is something you will forever have and can watch over and over throughout the years!
