Guest Book Ideas for Any Occasion

A guest book has become much more than a simple pen and paper. Today, it’s a fun way to entertain your guests and even provide a thoughtful keepsake for years to come. Guest book ideas can range from themed inspired objects, handmade goods and even edible DIY creations! To help find inspiration, we collected dozens of guest book ideas across weddings, showers and graduation parties—but many of these ideas are fun enough to include in any kind of party!

There’s thoughtful DIY artwork like watercolors or personalized photographs to clever items like signing a pumpkin for a autumn wedding or a boat buoy for a sailor-themed shower. Whichever route you go, everyone will admire your creativity while contributing well wishes.

Nothing beats capturing memories like a photo book—use it for your guest book or as a special keepsake with photos of your event!
