How to Make a Date Jar Guest Book for Weddings

One of the biggest misconceptions of a classic wedding is that everything has to be traditional. That’s not the case! It’s true that the details you select should convey a similar tone and feel of your overall theme, but you’re never stuck to old-fashioned ideas when it comes to classic styling.

For instance, a traditional guest book is a popular choice for this theme. However, a guest book alternative such as a date jar guest book is another fun way to get your guests to interact and leave their favorite date ideas (here are 50 Fun Date Ideas to get you started!) Today we’re showing you what you need to make this unique guest book alternative and we’ll answer the following: what a date jar is, how it works, and how easy it is to flawlessly set yours up. Enjoy!

Mirror Bar Menu — Handmade-a-Day

This mirror bar menu is today’s handmade-a-day find! Check out our archives here.

If you are going to make signature cocktails a part of your reception menu (and we think you should because it’s a fun detail, alcohol or alcohol-free), you will want to draw attention to it like a pro! We love when couples use interesting signage (like any of these chalkboard wedding signs or these welcome signs) to draw attention to an aspect of their reception. For instance, this mirror bar menu is one sign that will definitely attract guests. The hand-lettering is gorgeous, too! And you can reuse this ornate mirror in your home after the big day.
