Guestbooks are a great way to help you look back and remember who you celebrated your wedding day with. All to often though, they get packed away and rarely looked at. Don’t let this happen to you! Check out some of these great guest book ideas that will give your wedding a unique flare!

  • Set out five or more bottles of wine and have your guests sign them instead of a traditional guestbook. They can use paint markers to sign right on the bottle or print a customized label for them to sign on. Then, share a bottle each year on your anniversary and reminisce about the great times you had on your wedding day with those who love you the most!
  • Are you and your better half big music fans? Have guests sign on old records with paint markers then display them in your house as wall art. You will be reminded daily of those who rocked your wedding with you! You could even have them sign a guitar, drum head, or sheet music for the same effect!
  • Love is fun… and games? Have your guest sign jenga blocks or the back of a wooden puzzle pieces so every time you play you will be reminded of who was there when you married your perfect match. Bonus points if the wooden puzzle is one of your engagement photos that the guests can help put together after they sign the back of their piece!
  • Most Pittsburgher’s would agree: sports are number one in the burgh’! Show your true black and gold spirit by having your guests sign a custom jersey featuring your new last name and the date on which you are getting married!
  • Build your family tree! Frame a large drawing of a tree trunk and limbs, without leaves, for your guests to “sign” using their finger prints. Have your guests use multiple shades of green ink to stamp their fingerprint on the drawing to create the look of leaves. Then display the artwork  in your home- it will look like art but will be a constant reminder of your wedding day!  If you are having a spring wedding, use pink ink to create cherry  blossom trees, while orange, red, and yellow ink would be perfect for a fall wedding. Just be sure to leave baby wipes out so your guests can clean their hands after they are done creating your masterpiece!

Your wedding day is a celebration! Ovation Images will be with you for every moment of fun giving you exciting wedding day photography! So here are some tips from Pittsburgh’s Best Wedding Photographers to keep the party going all day long:

  • Many venues have a limit on how late they can stay open due to city ordinances. If you have a late-afternoon wedding and are planning a late reception, make sure you know when it has to end.
  • Likewise, talk with your vendors in advance to see how much it would cost to extend the time they are providing services. Knowing the cost in advance will make the decision simpler. Also ask if you can extend one hour at a time in case you need more than one extension!
