Here at Kiana Lodge, we love putting new twists on classic weddings, and sometimes, one of the best ways to put a new twist on the typical wedding guestbook is to rent a photo booth! The companies that offer this option usually provide lots of props for your honored guests to use, such as the "Team Bride!" signs, funky hats, and oversized sunglasses. This is a great way to commemorate your special day; not only do you get a scrapbook full of photos of your guests, where they can write sweet notes, but your guests also get to keep their own mementos.

Luckily, if you’d rather spend money on the open bar, or a live band, you can pull together a DYI version of this as well. Grab a swatch of fabric and pin it to a bare wall, or you can even just use the natural background of our beautiful gardens. Put dollar store props—like feather boas or homemade signs—in a basket and set a camera on a tripod beside the guestbook. This way, your guests can let their true personalities shine through and provide you with some great laughs when you look back on your special day at our Seattle-are lodge.
