Poster Guest Book
A poster guest book is considered a guest book alternative, which means it allows for signatures but isn’t in ‘book’ form. A poster guest book is different than a traditional book, but it’s easy to use.
How to Use a Poster Guest Book
Place your poster guest book on a table at your reception. Choose a high-traffic area that is well-lit. Be sure to fully stock with smudge-free permanent markers so guests don’t have to wait to sign their name. To encourage guest participation, include a simple sign that reads: ‘Please sign our guest book‘. (Pssst. Here’s a FREE printable for you! Print on 5×7″ card stock; frame. P.S. Licensed for personal use only.) After the wedding, frame the poster and display on a favorite wall in your home.
4 Reasons to Use a Poster Guest Book
1. It keeps a record of guests in attendance.
First, it’s functional. A guest book is designed to keep a record of wedding guests; this poster does just that. Guests sign directly onto the guest book poster.
2. It preserves the memory of your wedding theme and style.
This poster style guest book will encapsulate the details of your big day – like flowers, the location, wedding theme, or color palette – right into its design.
3. It is personalized with your names, date, and any “extras”.
Make it your own: include your names, the wedding date, your wedding song, a favorite quote, etc.
4. It will become a lasting keepsake in your home.
The last time I flipped through my wedding guest book – on my bookshelf – was after the wedding. A wedding poster guest book can be framed and displayed on a wall in your home; you’ll get to see it every day!
