Top Tips – Alternative Guest Books

top tips

This afternoon I’m pleased to bring you the next edition of  ‘Top Tips’. Top Tips is a way for suppliers to get involved with the Blog. If a supplier sees something new or exciting at a wedding they are working at I am asking them to send me in a photo of their findings so I can post it on the Blog.

I will only feature photos from actual weddings, or from real wedding suppliers, no pinterest photos. So you will you be safe in the knowledge that all these ideas are achievable and attainable.

Today I am sharing with you ideas for Alternative Guest Books. Although the traditional guest book still seems a popular option, I am finding more and more that couples are choosing to go with something different, something  a bit more interactive that their guests can get involved with. I decided to feature alternative guest book ideas after I was sent this cute idea from The Wedding of My Dreams, I just love it!

I hope you like my selection of  Alternative Guest Books, a BIG thank you to all the suppliers who sent me in their images and ideas. Remember these are all from real weddings and suppliers, so all are attainable  Which one is your favourite?  I’d love to know what you have planned for your big day.

 

  • If you are a wedding supplier and want to submit a photo for the ‘Top Tips’ feature then email me [email protected] . It can be anything you have seen at a wedding that has impressed you. Next month I will be looking at Table names and numbers.

    I really like the fingerprint idea. We photographed a wedding a couple of weeks ago which used the same idea. Fitted in with the styling of the wedding beautifully.
