What Do You Write in a Wedding Guest Book?

Delicate Inkwash - Iridescent Wedding Guest Book

When there's a wedding guest book, it's customary to write something uplifting. But given this is such a monumental occasion, you want it to have a special meaning and be something that will resonate with the happy couple when they read it. Below are a few pointers on what you could write about in a wedding guest book:


This is an ideal message for guests who are 'not close enough to be lifelong companions, but close enough to attend the wedding'. Typical messages include 'Congratulations on your marriage', 'Thank you for inviting me to your special day' or 'Enjoy the start of a magical journey together.'


For some people, there is no reason why you should want to get overly sappy. Not everyone needs to have the soul of a poet to write an affirming message. You might want to leave a fairly generic message such as 'Well done', 'Good luck to you both', 'Best wishes for the future' and 'Very happy for you both'.

Given the magnitude of the event, you may want to feature some words that carry a lot of weight behind them. It can also give you the chance to include a bit of individuality with your message by perhaps including something specific about the bride and groom: 'Since the day you met, I knew you two were made for each other'; or (if you want to get very flowery) 'When you look back on this day, it will be but a prologue in the book of life you are writing together'.

Of course, you don't have to be heavy on the heart. If the happy couple are fans of sarcasm, you could write a comedic anecdote, something that will have them chuckling on their way to the honeymoon. It could be something along the lines of 'It's all downhill from here' or 'Be careful over annoying trait' before concluding with your best wishes.
