Paddle Guest Book

First things first: what is a paddle guest book? A paddle guest book is a fun, interactive way for guests to leave their signatures at your wedding. Instead of a traditional guest book, guests sign directly onto a pair of custom wood paddles (use these) which are personalized with your names and wedding date. This unique paddle guest book, by Seaweed Designs, is hand-painted and made in America. The paddles measure 46″ L and are made of southern hardwoods. Since this is a handmade product, each paddle guest book is wholly unique and one-of-a-kind. Each paddle guest book pack comes with a set of metal hanging hardware so you can display them in your home.

The wood paddles can be painted in white, distressed white, sail white (off-white) and distressed sail white (off-white). Your lettering choices are black, dark navy, royal blue, chocolate, graphic grey, royal blue, blue sky, sterling metallic, gold metallic, and red.
