Another fun alternative guest book idea is to create a DIY frame using wooden pegs and twine ribbon. Your guests can take their picture using a small polaroid camera and they can write a message. Then instruct them to peg it to the frame. Simple yet so effective!

A bucket list wedding guest book is a unique and fun idea for both you and your guests. Ask your guests to write out a suggestion for a date night or something to add to your newlyweds bucket list. They can simply write it on a post-it note and put it in a wooden crate, jar or bucket.
