Guest Book Idea – The Garden Bench

The idea of a guest book is a lovely one. The chance for your guests to wish you happy thoughts, and offer words of wisdom for your marriage.

In reality though, not everyone writes a message and invariably you will look at the book only once or twice in your life. Yes, I did just admit this out loud!

This isn’t to say that I am against the ‘guest book’, I would just prefer to have something that is both sentimental AND useful. So when I came across the idea of the garden bench as a guest book, I was immediately smitten.

Buy, or even make a bench, and have your guests sign this instead. Afterwards the bench can be coated in a clear varnish and you have not only a useful gift, but a lifetime of memories from your wedding day.

Check out our Pinterest Board for possible benches you could use for this idea, ranging from £57.99 to £340. Plus a tutorial on how to make your own bench- perfect as a project for the Groom or your Dad. Do you have any alternative guest book ideas?

Happy Planning
