Unexpected Guest Book Ideas

Below are two unexpected or unusual wedding guest book ideas:

1. At your wedding loved ones and friends can pen their well wishes on a  small wooden bench for your porch or verandah as we call it in Jamaica.  Also a bright canvas can be used which you can frame afterwards.

2. Another unusual or unexpected guest book idea is a Rolodex style guest book. Cards in an array of patterns and colours are available and guests can write messages to the couple on one side and their contact information on the other. Clear plastic card sleeves will protect these for years to come.
