6 Unique Wedding Guestbooks You’ll Display Long After the Big Day

Monday, July 24th, 2017

Let’s face it, a regular ol’ guestbook at your wedding will only be useful for one night. After that, it likely will join other keepsakes in a closet somewhere to gather dust until you get a notion to haul it out for a look-see wayyyyy down the road. Instead of a dust-collector, we recommend you re-think your wedding guestbook as a collector-worthy work of personalized art that you’ll be proud to show off in your newlywed nest for years to come!

For travelers and adventure-seekers, a customized globe guestbook lets wedding guests feel like they’re going on this adventure with you!

Family, friends and faith come together in a bible guestbook, where wedding attendees have the opportunity to circle, highlight or decorate around their favorite verse and sign their names, creating an heirloom that can be passed down for generations.

Oh, winter weddings! Full of joy, twinkling lights, and seasonal tidings! What better way to add a personal touch to your Christmas tree than with personalized “guestbook” ornaments, signed by your guests on your wedding day, and enjoyed during the holiday season year after year after year?

One of our current guestbook faves is the Polaroid photo guestbook! Guests will have loads of fun posing for selfie (with or without props), and you’ll have tons of fun for decades to come flipping through a guestbook full of their pix and sweet wedding messages.

Trying to decorate your new “together” home is no easy task, but it’s way more fun when you get to fill it with meaningful personalized artwork like this adorable wedding guestbook, created with oodles of little hearts, each signed by a wedding guest and dropped into a clear frame that’s mantelpiece ready and really, really lovely.

Planning a rustic-elegant wedding? Then this guestbook idea is for you! A personalized wood frame with your names and wedding date makes a great canvas for guests to add their own sign-in “brushstrokes,” creating a perfectly personalized painting you’ll display, with love, now and forever.

Peanut Butter? We Like Ours Smooth. Bridal Jewelry? We’ll Take Chunky All The Way!

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Itty-bitty pearl drop earrings and delicate little diamond pendants are perfectly fine for weddings. Really. But the hottest look in bridal jewelry these days, like the hottest thing in soup (hey, those chilly nights are just around the corner!) is bold, thick and chunky.

We are crazy about these chunky wedding jewelry pieces—and we hope you are, too. No wallflowers here, thought fabric flowers aplenty (check out that peach-satin and black-glass bib from RiRiFisch—gorgeous!). Plus chunks of crystal, big fat faux pearls and lots of lush color.

MEG Chunky Bridal Bracelet

How yummy are the two styles above (necklace on top, beautiful ribbon bracelet below) from MEG? “MEG is a brand that has the chunky style down,” says our friend Lindsey Brewer, bridal consultant extraordinaire at Brickhouse Bridal, who’s seen many a Houston bride fall hopelessly in love with the line’s lovely, statement-making pieces.

Pearl and Crystal Bridal Bib Necklace

The “Ellen” necklace by Erin Gallagher is like a cascade of sparkle–imagine how stunning this would look draped against your decolletage at your candlelit reception.

Chunky Blue and White Bridal Necklace

Peach Fabric Flower Bridal Necklace

The “Your Majesty” bridal necklace by Etsy’s Sol Bijou (above) combines Kyanite, Labradorite, Blue Mystic Topaz and Rock Quartz with polymer clay and organza flowers, faux pearl clusters and French satin ribbon, all in grays, blues and shades of white. And, like your wedding, it’s one of a kind. Wow.

With its matte peach satin blossoms accented with jet glass beads, RiRiFisch’s “Dianna” necklace is a vintage-inspired vision of loveliness. It comes with black ribbon ties (a hint of elegant edginess we LOVE for winter brides), but you can switch out for a different color if you so desire.
