Indian Wedding Guestbook Ideas

A guestbook serves as a great way of recording memories of your wedding day. Guests are able to leave notes for you so that you can look back and read their wishes. This aspect of the wedding can be completely personalized and you can make it as unique as your wedding. Read on to find different ways of getting your guests to sign in and write out their love.

Traditional Guestbook

The traditional guestbook consists of a book where guests can sign in with their name(s) and an optional comment. Because there are so many styles available you can find one that is perfect for you and your wedding theme. We love this guestbook with a beautiful Indian design, found on etsy.com (a great resource for unique wedding items).

Photo Guestbook - Guests

This is a great idea for a smaller wedding but is not too practical for a large gathering. You will need to purchase a book with blank pages, a camera, a glue stick and some pretty pens. Ask a few of your close friends or relatives to stand at the entrance of your hall and take Polaroid pictures of each guest or group of guests. Guests can then write their comments in the guestbook and their Polaroid picture can be glued next to their wishes. Alternatively, you can use a digital camera with a photo printer.

Photo Guestbook - Couple

Many online photo website offer the creation of photo books. Create a unique photo books filled with your memories as a couple. Just add an image on one page and then leave the next page blank, or just add lines for people to leave their comments. After the wedding, you will have a great photo book of your dating memories and also lovely comments from your wedding guests.

Wishbowl

This idea was originally made popular by Martha Stewart but variations of the idea have been spreading across the wedding industry. You will need a wide vase, note cards and pens. Put out the note cards for guests to convey their wishes and then have them fold the card and place it in the wishbowl.  Have fun with the instructions and write them out as a poem or limerick and then attach them to the wishbowl with a ribbon. Later you can place all of these note cards into an album for your viewing pleasure.

Questionnaire

If you think your guest need a little more motivation to write than just a blank piece of paper and a pen, a questionnaire is perfect. These can be placed at the sign-in table or distributed inside the hall on the tables. Make up different questions to get the guests’ opinions on when you will have kids or who will wear the pants in the family. This will definitely encourage some humorous responses that will make you laugh for years.

Platter

This is a great, artistic way to display your guests’ wishes for everyone to see. Order a an unfired platter or bowl from a pottery shop in your town and place it at your sign-in table. Guests can then use a pre-glaze pen to write their comments on the platter(s). Later you can have the platter glazed and fired as a keepsake to permanently display the memories in your new home. This will make a great conversation piece!

Picture Signing

A very popular option is the wide matte picture frame, in which you have a double or triple wide matting put on a picture of the couple, or a picture that means something to the couple. Guests can then sign around the picture which can be placed at the entrance to the hall. They will enjoy reading others’ comments and of course gazing at your beautiful picture! This can later be displayed in your new home.
