Where Should I Place the Guest Book at My Wedding?

After you’ve spent so much time finding the perfect wedding guest book, you don’t want everyone to ignore it! It’s important not only to choose the right spot to place your guest book, but also take some steps to ensure that all of your guests see it when they walk into your reception. Here are some tips to help get your wedding guest book signed by your friends, family, and loved ones.

Where Is the Best Place to Put a Wedding Guest Book?

It’s hard to get wedding experts to agree on anything, but this is one area where there’s a consensus: your wedding guest book should be placed on a table at or near the entrance to your reception. Don’t place it in an alcove or an out-of-the-way corner of the room; by putting it near the entrance, you’ll guarantee that everyone will see it and increase the odds of people signing it either on their way in or out.

You can also place your wedding guest book at the entrance of your wedding ceremony, which is nice for those early arrivals who aren’t sure what to do with themselves while they wait. Just don’t forget to bring it with you to your reception too!

Getting Your Wedding Guest Book Noticed

We like to think that a guest book from Luna Paper Co. is sure to be noticed, but in the hustle and bustle of a reception, sometimes you need a little help calling attention to your book even if it’s stationed by the entrance. Place a decorative sign at the table—or find a creative friend to do some custom chalkboard art for you—with a simple message reminding guests to sign your guest book. 

A table near the entrance is good, a table with a sign is better, but to really make an impression, add other elements to the table to draw your guests over. It’s the perfect place for a stunning flower arrangement that coordinates with those on the guest tables, photos of you and your significant other, and other decor. Some artfully arranged bowls and jars of candy will be sure to get attention too—who can pass up candy?!

Encouraging Guests to Sign

You’ve done everything except set up a neon sign directing people to your wedding guest book, but inevitably, there will still be some people who forget to sign it. Maybe they don’t want to wait in line while entering the reception or maybe they’re a little too tired (or tipsy) by the end of the night. Another surefire way to encourage your guests to leave a message for you and your spouse is to appoint a friend or family member as your official guest book minder.

Have them stand at the table and greet everyone who enters, asking them to sign the book. Do the same when it’s time to leave. Even when people are milling about and mingling or dancing after dinner, you can have your minder issue gentle reminders to people and make sure those pages get filled.
