A wedding guest book your friends and family will love

Unique, personal, and worthy of hanging on your wall.
The best weddings are more than a ceremony and reception. They’re a coming together of family and friends to participate in celebrating the happy couple. Emphasis on the participate.
That’s why we love the concept of a wedding guest book that is fun and interactive. Traditional guest books are awesome keepsakes, but they usually end up collecting dust on a bookshelf.
Here at Canvaspop, since we’re obsessed with all things visual, we are over the moon about the latest trend in wedding guest books: photo print guest books. That's right, turning a custom canvas print into a non-traditional wedding guest book that doubles as wall art.
This unique, visual spin on guest books takes a canvas print and turns it into a collaborative art project that’s totally unique, personal, and worthy of hanging on your wall.
How to create a customized photo wedding guest book
The best part is how simple and fun these photo guest books are to make.
Print a photo from your engagement shoot. Choose an image that has a lot of extra space around the subjects (that would be you and your partner), since this is the area where your guests will write their messages.
Display the photo in a prominent area at your wedding. It doesn’t hurt to use some signage to make sure your guests stop by and sign it.
Proudly display the signed photo guest book in your home so you can admire it and let it fill you with warm memories of that day for years to come.
What we love (and you will, too) about photo guest books
Here are just some of the things we love about this style of alternative guest book:
They’re one of a kind
Photo guest books are the ultimate custom art piece. You get to select the image, size and framing options to suit your taste. And, of course, the messages that your family and friends write make it 100% personal.
They capture a moment in time
Your relationship as a couple will grow and change over the years. A photo guest book helps capture who you were as a couple on your wedding day and becomes a piece of your personal history.
They have sentimental value
Photos play a special role in our lives—we return to them, again and again, to reflect on the past, remember the good times, and keep us going when times get tough. A custom canvas print that hangs on the walls of your home is a daily reminder of the important people in your life and what you mean to each other.
They let you unleash your creativity
The sky is really the limit when it comes to this kind of non-traditional guest book. So let your creativity shine when choosing the photograph, the finish, the frame, and the writing tools your guests will use.
