About The Alternative Guest Book

The unique keepsake that everyone is talking about!

The Alternative Guest Book is the sister brand to The Illustrated Invitation.

The Illustrated Invitation is a market leading stationers based in Somerset, UK. We specialise in illustrating our customers wedding venue via stunning pencil sketch which is then featured throughout a suite of personalised and unique stationery, from Save the Date to Invitation suites and from Orders of Service to Table Plans, Place cards and Menu’s. We have another listing on Hitched for this brand if you are interested in seeing some samples.

At wedding exhibitions featuring our work, we noticed that one of the products which always drew the crowds and got people talking was our Guest Comments Frames. So much so, we decided to create a separate brand for this and thus The Alternative Guest Book was born.

Since then, demand for our frames seems to have gone viral. Everyone loves them - the only debate is whether you would like your guest comments scanned in or typed! Take a look through our gallery - which do you prefer?!

How does it work you ask?

Prior to the wedding day, we provide a number of post cards printed with your personal message to your guests on one side and blank on the reverse for them to write their message.

We suggest you put a card for each guest on the tables at the reception either prior to them being seated or nominate someone to hand them out at the end of the speeches (when the married couple may be whisked off for their photographs).

This is an ideal time as there is natural break in the day’s celebrations when coffee is served and tables cleared. Advantages of the designated time means everyone will definitely write a message (a book can often be forgotten) and also provides a great opportunity for all the guests to have a little fun together, sharing ideas on what to put!

After the wedding, you send the cards back to us for creating the framed comments (which we later return so that you retain the original cards too).

Take a look at our website for further details!

We are a family business with a passion for wowing our customers. Let's work together and we will create a stunning keepsake of your special day featuring comments, advice, anecdotes, even doodles and sketches that you can treasure for years to come!
