4 alternative wedding guest booksSeptember 28, 2015 Wedding Articles
Do you want something different for your wedding guest book? Traditionally, a wedding guest book is a paper book in which guests to leave their messages of congratulations for you on your wedding day. After your wedding day, how many times would you look at your guest book to read the comments? Would you put yours away never to be read again? If you want something you can remember your special day by, here are four alternative guest books from TNWS exhibitors The Wedding Tree:
Drop Top Guest Book
A guest book to be displayed proudly in your home for years to come. The Drop Top Guest Book is solid wooden frame in which guests place wooden hearts with their personal messages on into the slot at the top. Each message gently falls into the frame to create a stunning piece of artwork for you to remember your special day by each time you look at it.
Choose from four high quality woods for your frame: European Oak, European Oak with a Graphite wash, Walnut or Zebrano. You can then select to have your names and wedding date set in the middle of the frame on a single heart or three smaller hearts.
Not only does the Drop Top Guest Book make a stunning feature in your home after your big day, it is also a fun entertainment activity for your guests during your wedding reception.
The Drop Top Guest Book comes in two standard sizes: the original, which comes with 165 wooden hearts and the Mini, which comes with 100 hearts.
Oak Block Guest Book
A guest book to be used over and over again. The Oak Block Guest Book is a tower of blocks on which guests will write their message on an individual block and place their piece, building a tower. Once complete, the tower can be used during your reception as a party piece, keeping guests entertained.
After the big day, you can play with the blocks as a unique family game, remembering your special day by reading the messages left for you by your guests.
Tip: If you want your Oak Block Guest Book just for your daytime guests, why not write their name on one side and use it as their table place names. Leave instructions on the table with pens for guests to write their messages and ask them to build the tower, giving a booby prize to the one who knocks it over.
Your names and wedding date are engraved onto the sides of each solid Oak block and all of the pieces come in a personalised wooden presentation box for safe storage.
Drop Box Guest Book
A stunning box guest book to hold your cherished memories. The Drop Box Wedding Guest Book is similar to the Drop Top Guest Book in that guests write their personal messages onto wooden hearts and drop them in the box. This is perfect for those who prefer not to have their messages on display.
Made from European Oak, you can choose to have the box portrait or landscape denoting where the slot is placed. Your box will be personalised with your names and ceremony date.
Place your box on a table at your reception and invite guests to write their messages and place them into the box. After the big day, sit down with a glass of your favourite tipple and enjoy reading the lovely messages left by your guests.
Whole Lot of Love Guest Book
For those of you who want something you can display proudly, yet keep private; the Whole Lot of Love Guest Book is perfect. This beautifully crafted box holds all of the messages left for you on your wedding day by your guests.
Guests write on the hearts provided and these are then kept in the personalised European Oak box. The box is engraved with your names and ceremony date with the optional additional message of
“This box contains a whole lot of love”.
