21 Themed Wedding Guest Book Prints

We like a classic guest book, but we love guest book prints. A guest book is signed and put away, but a print is displayed in your home for years to come! A unique guest book also acts as an ice-breaker for guests, which means more guests will sign it. You’d be surprised how many guest books are hidden and end up with few signatures. (EB Tip: Be sure to place it on its own table and include a sign that reads, ‘Sign our guest book’. Include plenty of pens for signing along with any instructions, if necessary.)

Today we’ve rounded up an array of unique themed guest book alternatives to tie in your wedding theme from the lovely MDB Weddings. This shop has many whimsical wedding prints for every theme, every budget, and every size. Check out some of our handpicked favorites, below! P.S. If you want more ideas on wedding themes, check out the book.

Themed Wedding Guest Book Ideas

These guest books work differently than a traditional “book” style. Place one of these prints flat on a table with an instruction card asking guests to sign directly onto it (inside a balloon, heart, start, bunting flag, map, etc.) We recommend using these as your pens, since they won’t bleed through, they’re fine point for guests to write in small spaces and they won’t smudge. I swear by them for everything.

1. These hearts atop your engagement photo

Scroll Wedding Programs — Ceremony Details

What kind of wedding programs will you use for your ceremony? One of our favorite styles is the rolled wedding program, also known as scroll programs. Scroll wedding programs are printed with your ceremony information (including the date, names of couple and wedding party, songs, order of events, etc.), hand-rolled, and tied with twine. The ceremony programs are then placed in a basket near the entrance of your ceremony, so guests can take one as they find their seats. To inspire you, we’ve hand-picked these scroll wedding programs from Paper Street Press as today’s handmade find of the day. They’re printed on high-quality paper and they’re also double-sided, which means you’ll see a pop of color (in your wedding color palette) even when the programs are rolled. What a great idea! Read on to see them…

How to Wear a Flower Crown — Even If You’re Shy

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and if you’re a shy bride, I get it. I am pretty outgoing, but when it comes to accessories I’m as bashful as can be. A bold accessory to me feels like, here I am with my (insert accessory here). It feels like I’m trying too hard. That’s why you’ll probably never catch me wearing a big red hat. Or an insanely gorgeous — and giant — bib necklace. Or a bold shade of red lipstick à la Taylor Swift. I love all of these things — but on me? Not so much. Let people who can wear a long t-shirt dress go ahead and rock it, then. I’m fine over here with my tee shirt dress paired with leggings, thank you very much. ;) I just finally hopped aboard the whole ankle booties trend this past winter. And that took me way too long.

But what if you’re a shy bride who still wants to do some serious accessorizing for her wedding? For instance, if I was planning a bohemian wedding, you can bet I’d want to wear one of these. But I don’t know if I could pull it off.
