Photo Wedding Guest Book:

A photo wedding guest book is a wonderful idea for creating your own wedding guest book-- because you create both a guest book and a photo keepsake that you'll want to keep forever. Plus, it's fun for your guests, too!
Photos for a Custom Wedding Guest Book
The variety of pictures that you use to create your book is endless. The pictures can be from your engagement shoot, or they can be from your lives before you met up until your engagement.
Choosing Your Picture Theme: 5 Photo Ideas
The first thing you need to consider when planning a photo wedding guest book is the time span that you want to put into this project. After all, if you're planning an entire wedding, you probably have enough on yoru plate already!
Looking for ideas for photos for a photo guest book that range from simple to complex? Here are several ideas that you could use for your picture theme/themes on different pages-- or as an entire theme for your photo wedding guest book.
1. Use Your Engagement Photos
If you had engagement pictures taken, you may want to use those pictures for a photo album wedding guest book. This would be a good chance for everyone to see the engagement pictures as they are signing the guest book.
While you probably don't have enough engagement photos to fill up and entire photobook, these photos are probably the best idea out there for the title page or main page of your photo guest book.
2. Record Your Time Together
Pictures from your time together are a wonderful ideas for photos to put in a wedding reception guest book. These sorts of photos will give an overview of your life together, and some of your guests will be able to find their own photos in there, too! Especially if you choose group photos and photos of you and your future spouse having a great time with friends and family.
3. Your Childhoods Till Now
This idea for a photo wedding guest book will involve photos from each of your childhoods, and then culminate with your meeting or your engagement.
This is a wonderful way to signify and celebrate the coming together of two separate lives into one! You may want to note, though, that this may be a good choice if you are not going to have a similar slide show during your rehearsal dinner or during the wedding dinner. But as most people don't do this, this kind of wedding photo guest book is a great way to show off your favorite photos-- both together and apart.
4. Special Wedding Party Photo Guest Book
Since you have asked your friends to be there to witness your vows, you may want to have pictures of you and/or your future spouse with the people who will be in the wedding.
Or another fun idea is to set aside a few pages for the mother and father of the bridge and groom, the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and important people in the wedding.
5. The Whole Wedding
Want to really make your guests feel special when signing your wedding photo guest book? You can also choose to make a photo book with photos of everybody you've invited!
This is a great idea, but is probably the hardest option to bring together... and only appropriate for a smaller wedding, probably. After all, you will need to have a lot of photos to cover everyone that you have invited to the wedding! If you choose this option then people can sign in the area where they find their picture-- very cool!
Types of Photo Guest Books
There are two different ways you can have your guest sign your wedding guest book: You can have blank pages or lined pages
If you want to have every other page blank for your guests to sign, then you can use almost any of the photo book printers that we review in the photo book review pages. You just choose the size you want and leave the pages blank.
If you would want a more formal looking guest book with lined pages for your guests to sign, then there are two printers who offer this as a photo book option: Mixbook and Picaboo.
Whatever options you choose you will be sure to have a special, personalized guest book for your wedding.
