Salam. Hello people. Long time no blog. =P Sorry.
I want to have a guestbook for my wedding reception and so I did some research. It seems that I'm loving the "VINTAGE" theme.
So here are some of the creative vintage ideas I came across:
Polaroid book. Update the traditional photo album with a fun, retro feel by placing a Polaroid camera on a table along with colored pens and have your guests take shots of themselves or each other and sign or write fun notes on the bottom of the photos. You can even string up clothes lines for guests to pin their photo creations on to jazz up the reception. Later on, you can place your favorites in a photo album-type guest book or create a framed photo collage.
Fingerprint Guestbook Love this cute idea, give your guests a large pre-printed tree on which to add their fingerprinted leaves to as well as their names. An artistic and creative alternative wedding guestbook idea that will still look fab hanging in your home as art long after the day is over.
Typewriters What a great twist on the ever popular typewriter guest book! A vintage typewriter is used to create guest notes. When the guests are done typing their note, they throw the note in the waste basket! What a unique and fun idea. Just be sure the clean up crew doesn’t really think it’s trash.
Wedding Wish Tree. Guest can fill your tree up with “wish” leaves. Great for an indoor or outdoor wedding.
Postcards in a suitcase/mailbox. Ask your guests to write their messages on post cards the collect them in a vintage suitcase. This is perfect for travel-themed weddings.
Airmail Wishes for the couples. Had guests write on cards which were then enclosed in air mail envelopes in lieu of a guestbook.
Puzzle Guestbook. Have your guests write their messages on the individual pieces then collect them in a jar or box. Later on, you and hubby can have fun putting it all together!
Jenga Tower Alternative Guestbook. A simple and no-fuss guestbook alternative! Have your guests sign Jenga blocks (and remember your guests whenever you play the game).
A Wish Wall. Have your guests tuck colorful wishes into little cardboard cubbyholes. You can then transport the whole wall for decorating your home later on
Mad Libs Inspired Guestbook. This idea will take your guests way back to their school days.These are a fun way for your guests to leave a personal yet funny message.
Unconventional Guestbook . Guests signed framed records that would be hung in the couple's home. Brides and grooms are encouraged to make their guest books personal. You'll never display a plain ole guest book, but you will hang a pair of vintage skis in your home if you're a skier or a beautiful vintage book. Get creative!
Chalkboard Message in Photobooth. Cut-out bubble shapes and coat it with chalkboard paint. Place them by your photo booth and let your guest write a short message before having their hilarious pose infront of the camera.
Photo Frame Guestbook. Celebrate your wedding day along with loving words of your friends flanked by your chosen wedding photo. Use an acid free fine point pen to protect your guest’s messages for many years.
I think that's all for now. I'll share some more next time.
Till then. =))
