Win a ‘Guest Who?’ Wedding Guest Book from Illustries

Wedding guest books are traditionally a beautiful book that your wedding guests write a special message in for you to cherish forever. However, traditions are changing and there are now many alternative guest books ideas, such as guests signing Polaroid pictures or little wooden hearts. Now there is a really cool new idea for a wedding guest book… the ‘Guest Who?’ wedding guest book from Illustries.

The Wedding Community is delighted to team up with Illustries to give away three of these really cool Guest Who? alternative wedding guests books.

Guest Who? Wedding Guest Book from Illustries

The Guest Who? guest book makes messages to the bride and groom a lot more fun! In Guest Who? guests leave their message and a clue to their identity, ready for the bride and groom to ‘guess the guest’ behind the good wishes.

How to Play Guest Who?

Guests just pick a page, write their message (and add a clue if they like), then add their name to the guest list at the back of the book. The newlyweds will enjoy reading the messages and trying to guess the guest who left it, and they can then check the ‘answers’ to confirm if they guessed correctly.

Guest Who? Message Page

The Guest Who? guest book also has a cute bookmark with simple instructions on what to do (it’s very easy).

We spoke to Illustries to find out what inspired them create this amazing product.
“We wanted Guest Who to be flexible, fun and really personal, so the guest can really leave any kind of message, but also a hint of their personality. We kept putting ourselves in our friends’ shoes – what would Sam’s gym buddy say, and how would Sam guess it was her, or what kind of thing would we write to each other (the clues were great for that one – there’s always so much shorthand in a friendship!). It was great fun to put together, but like all our books, it was really important that it solved a problem too – lots of couples want to have an ice breaker or a game, and this combined that idea with the guest book, so there is something for everyone. It also had to sit well with any wedding scheme, so for us, crisp and classic black and white was the only way!”
