What Size Guest Book Should I Get?
Estimate that the book should fit about 60% to 70% of your total guest count. This number could go down to 50%, if you invited many couples. Don’t go overboard as it’s better for guests to be searching for the empty spot than to have too much room to add their well-wishes.
Guest Book Ideas So Pretty and Original You May Use As Home Decor
Usually the wedding guest book ended up gathering dust somewhere in the house never to be seen again. Therefore, the trend of having a signature book that could be used as a statement piece in your home makes more sense. First, because it will make you smile every time you see it just for remembering those beautiful memories. Second, its cost is an investment in your home decor! Pick something really original that you will cherish for a long time to come. Am i right?
Now, this is a fab guest book alternative to have this memory turn into a conversation piece. Have the guests sign an Adirondack that will later adorn your backyard.

Polaroid Wedding Guest Book Ideas: Selfies and more Selfies
We love the look of Polaroids, old and new. Vintage-themed receptions call for a Polaroid selfie guest book. Your guests’ photos will be instantly printed – after a few shakes – and they can write on the back their wishes for the newlyweds. But not every guest will want their picture taken, so it might be best to have an alternative way of signing the guest book. We also like the idea of having an attendant take the pictures – assign the task to a member or two out of your bridal squad.
Add instructions for your guests, something like “You Smile, We Snap, You Sign, We Cherish.” Another alternative is to look into more products that produce instant film, like printers that hook up to smart phones. That way they can take a picture on their phone and pick which one they’d like to print over bluetooth, and finally attach it where ever you’re asking them to.
