We’re all familiar with the traditional guest book that guests sign their name in with well wishes for your future. We are also familiar with the endless amounts of dust that compile on top of that guest book, while it lays to rest on a bookshelf or in a closet. But if you’re looking for something new, here are some ideas.

After the Tone
After the Tone is the new guestbook on the block. This concept compiles audio keepsake recordings of your guests and loved ones. It allows guests to leave a personalized voicemail you will want to hang on to forever. Although the cost of After the Tone may cost a little more than a simple traditional guest book, the unforgettable memories and being able to hear your loved ones’ voices forever makes this option PRICELESS.

Map of Your City
Why not use a map of your city for your guests to sign. This beautiful rendition can be your home town or the destination of your wedding. Display the meaningful map upon your guests arrival, they can sign wherever they want or ask them to sign where they live.
How beautiful would it be to support a local artist while having a spectacular piece of art work done for your wedding day. The artist can paint you and your spouse before your wedding or they can be a part of your day and can paint while at your wedding. If you chose to have the artist attend the wedding, have them paint you at the altar or casually toasting together. Then ask your guests to add their special messages to your canvas as they depart for the evening.
**GASP** That’s correct! Just skip it. If you and your significant other can not decide on something in common… Toss the idea all together. Who needs another dust collector? The important thing to remember is this day is about the two of you building a beautiful life together. The memories will still be made.
