Alternative Guest Book Ideas – Wedding Postcards

Are you looking for an alternative wedding guest book idea? We have just the thing.

We like the idea of guests being able to write you a message of good thoughts for your marriage, but are not fond of the traditional guest book. Mainly because our brides tell us that they look at them once after the wedding and then they start gathering dust. Plus there is always that inappropriate drawing, somewhere towards the end!

So how about getting your guests to write you a message/ words of wisdom on marriage, on a postcard…….. nothing new about that, you might say? Ok but how about adding another dimension so that you wedding day keeps on giving?









Ask your chief bridesmaid, the best-man, or any guest you can really rely on, to choose 12 or 24 of the best messages and arrange for the postcards to be sent every month/ fortnight of your first year of marriage.

We love this idea, and with Ebay selling batches of old postcards from £4  all the way to £50 it could be not only a really touching idea, but an affordable one too.

Can we tempt you with this idea? We would love to hear what you think with a comment.
