A guestbook is intended to be a place where party guests can leave the host a note, some well wishes, advice (be it marital, a new baby, housewarming, etc.), and/or a funny anecdote or story.  Looking back through the book later, we can remember who was there, as well as be inspired by the things people wrote.

If you’re planning a wedding or other event right now, chances are you’ve given a lot of thought to the guestbook.  Just type the word into the search field on Pinterest and you’ll get back thousands of ideas.  From photo books to wishing trees, there are countless ways to make your guestbook, and the guestbook table, fit with the rest of your decor.  We’ve rounded up our current favorite ideas below.
