With the help of platforms like Pinterest, Tik Tok, and Instagram just to name a few, Wedding Planning ideas have never been more accessible. While the many different ideas and concepts that float around can be helpful, it can also be overwhelming trying to narrow down all you have seen into a final idea. A Wedding staple that has evolved throughout the years is the Guest Book! What was once an opened book on a table now has blossomed into Guest Books that have so much personality and style, it truly fits the couple and who they are.

Have your guests snap a picture of themselves and write their names and a short message to you guys, the couple! This kind of Guest Book adds the visual touch to something that is usually just words.

This one is definitely for the music loving couple! We all have songs that remind us of moments, a certain time of our lives, and even people. Go grab some records that have songs or albums that mean the most to you on them and have them on a table. You can use paint pens or metallic sharpies and have your guests sign their names right onto the records. The best part about this option is that they can double as trendy wall art after the Wedding! Now, every time you hear the songs represented or see them hanging on your wall, you are reminded of your special day and all of the people you got to share it with!
