We interviewed our Guest Book Alternatives expert, Jessi Pettenuzzo of ROCKNEVENTS to answer a few of the most common questions she gets:

What is a wedding guest book?

A wedding guest book is a sentimental keepsake used to remember all the loved ones that celebrated with you on your special day. It can be anything from a book, a quilt, a photo album, messages in a bottle, picture frames, games (Jenga or puzzle pieces) or anything for people to write their name and a note to the happy couple. Whether it be your grandparents sharing successful marriage advice, or your best friends writing inside jokes, it is something to look back on many years later to commemorate the celebration and all those that were a part of your wedding.

Are wedding guest books necessary?

Wedding guest books are absolutely not necessary, but they are something that everyone should consider. It is completely up to you whether you think including one is something you would value or not. Ask yourself: "Will I look at this again after my wedding? Would I want to show it my kids someday? Is there a chance I could regret not having one at my wedding?"

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then have a guest book! If you don't care about it and imagine after the wedding it will remain in a box under the stairs forever, then you probably don't need one.

What do you put in a wedding guest book?

Your wedding guest book should be comprised of sentimental touches, some personal flair, and ample "white space" for guests to write on.

Sound vague? That's because you can do whatever you want with your guest book! Most people will include their names and the date of their wedding somewhere in the book, whether it be on the cover or on the pages. Past that, the most important thing is to make sure there is plenty of space for your guests to write in the book! If you want to get creative, make it a photo album and include sentimental photos of you and your new spouse over the years. Using your engagement photos is a great option, as your guests will love seeing sweet photos of the two of you!

What should parents write in a wedding guest book?

Anything their heart desires! A parent can always write a simple note, congratulating them, welcoming their new son or daughter-in-law into the family and reminding them how much they are loved. They could share some words of wisdom about marriage and life, or perhaps add some comedy by sharing a funny story about their son or daughter that their new spouse may not have heard yet! Write a poem, draw a picture, or write a simple "Love, Daddy".

The floor (or page) is yours, do with it as you please! In truth, no matter what you write, they will treasure your words forever.

Where can you buy an alternative wedding guest book?

If you want to add a little spice to a traditional guest book, take a look at Zazzle - they have a number of fun designs you can add to the cover of your book. If you want a photo album, Artifact Uprising has some neat photo layout options that are just beautiful! Etsy is also a wonderful place to find creative options for alternative guest books, or it can even give you ideas of ones that you can create yourself.  And don't forget you can always take a look at Amazon if you have a specific idea in mind already.
