15 Creative Wedding Guest Book Ideas

The fate of a traditional guest book typically goes like this:

It gets signed at the reception by guests struggling to fill its empty pages. The wedding couple skims through the guest book after the wedding ceremony. It is carelessly tucked away in a drawer. In the godforsaken drawer it stays, collecting dust for a long, long time :(

Why must a guest book be a book? Shake things up with a creative, unconventional and totally cool guest "book" that'll have practical uses long past the wedding day!

Here are 15 amazing alternatives to the traditional guest book:
