Gone are the days when everyone has the same white guest book with a ribbon across the front in their chosen colour. Brides are opting for alternative guest books for their wedding. The choices now are huge! From jenga pieces, heart drop boxes and finger print trees, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to treasuring special messages from your wedding guests.

Some really unique wedding guestbooks here. Brides are moving towards alternative styles and are spoilt for choice! Looking for alternative wedding guestbook inspiration? You just found it!This post contains affiliate links

Anything personalised is huge right now and I have to admit I have a soft spot for anything that shows the newlywed’s names and their wedding date. Especially when it has that lovely swirly text that looks like it has come straight out of the pages of a fairy’s notebook. Not that you’d forget your name or your wedding date but an item seems to hold more sentiment when it ‘knows’ you and when you wed, you tend to treasure it more than a generic item that you picked up in the card shop.

Well I’ve searched long and hard, high and low to find you the most beautiful, original alternative wedding guest book ideas, including who sells them and where to order them! Of course, you can get variations of all of these but these are in my opinion, the best of the bunch so I hope you love them too.
