This idea adds a fun and interactive element to the reception, giving your guests something to do while you are with the photographer.

You can have your guests stick it in a book with a short message – this will give you many laughs over the years to come!wedding guest book south africa 6

Wall Art to Your Celebrate Love

Another idea for a “display” guest book is to have your guests sign a small wooden heart and drop it in a Shadow Box. This can be mounted after the wedding and will serve as a great conversation starter. The shadow boxes are relatively inexpensive or can even be made if you are crafty! You could also pick up beautiful mismatched china at second-hand stores and have your guests sign it with glass-safe markers. This can be mounted in an artful display and would look wonderful in a dining room. Some other ideas are to have your thumbprints enlarged and overlapped in the shape of a heart. Guests can sign it or leave a message and you can hang the framed print in your home. wedding guest book south africa 7
