Most couples are opting out of the traditional wedding guestbook for obvious reasons (what do you really do with a book of everyone’s name and/or addresses other than send out thank you cards).
So, what is the new trend? A guestbook photobook of your engagement photos. Guests sign on a blank page of a book filled with images of you and your fiance.
BUT, when I saw this idea last week, I thought this was a fantastic idea!
It’s a “Wedding Tree.” Have each of your guests place their thumbprint somewhere on the tree. Then, the happy couple can have it framed and put it in their home. The “Wedding Tree” is a great memento and a great guestbook alternative. It would probably work best with a smaller wedding, but if you have a hefty guest list, you could do a few different trees and have a collection of artwork for your house. It’s fun and different, and just plain awesome.
