How to Create a Digital Wedding Guest Book

The Celebrate Team

Welcome to the future of preserving your amazing wedding memories! Choosing a digital guest book for your special day isn't just a trend—it's like adding a touch of magic to your celebration. With a digital guest book, you're taking your wedding experience to a whole new level, making sure every heartfelt message, every shared laugh, and every priceless moment is captured in a way that's as fun and lively as your big day itself.

And guess what? You don't need to be a tech wizard to make it happen!

Setting up your digital guest book is also super easy — we'll outline the steps for you right here. Other virtual guest books might require you to use their equipment, a camera they send you (or a booth, or what have you). That's where's Video Guestbook comes in — the ultimate solution for effortlessly capturing and reliving the love and joy of your wedding day. With, turning your guests' messages into a special video message montage is as easy as saying "I do."

You don't have to worry about complicated setups or confusing instructions. The entire process is simple and straightforward, so you can focus on enjoying every moment of your big day. For this Video Guestbook, all your guests need are a working camera on their phone and cell service. And hey, most of your guests carry their phone at all times, so that's not a problem!

With our digital guest book service, wedding guests just scan the QR code (either in person at the wedding or to send to loved ones and friends who couldn't make it) and record their well wishes, advice for you, funny anecdotes, or anything they want!

It'll also be fun to see your wedding through the eyes of your guests because they'll be capturing everything going on in the background. It's all done for you in-app, and after you'll have these beautiful memories forever.

Now, who is this virtual guest book for? Is it for a wedding, or a different event? When is the big day? Here is where you'll create the info page easily, and your digital guest book is almost ready to go - the next step is the most fun.

Step 2. Create your Printables!

Now comes the fun part—let your creativity run wild! Dive into a vast selection of design templates curated to reflect various styles and preferences. From classic elegance to modern chic, there's something for every couple to fall in love with.

Incorporate personalized touches by adding photos of you and your partner, infusing the designs with your unique story and personality. Craft heartfelt messages that resonate with your guests and include the essential QR code, serving as the method for how your guests will leave their messages in your one-of-a-kind guest book.

We have some pre-filled text (that we personally love) to help entice guests into contributing to your digital guest book, but the beauty of our printables is that they can represent your wedding however you like. Once you've selected a photo (or photos!) to upload and completed your written message, your QR code poster design is ready to print and download right away.

Step 3. Take your Design to a Printer

While most of the virtual wedding guest book is indeed virtual, the printing of the photo template is not. You will have to take your photo template to a printer to print the real thing. We know, we hate leaving the house too. The good news is, this is the only time you'll have to until the big day (for the digital guest book that is - we can't guarantee you won't have to go pick up groceries at some point!)

Step 4. Get married!

We don't have to explain this one! Have the biggest wedding, the smallest wedding, a virtual wedding - whatever your wildest dreams are, go out and make them happen for your wedding day! At your wedding, guests will scan the QR code on the photo template and record a message for you and your partner at the online video guest book. It's bound to be an event your wedding guests will rave about, and you'll have these memories for life.

Step 5. Sit back, relax, and watch your digital guestbook

After your wedding is over, you'll be filled with all of the joy, well wishes and happy messages from your friends to last you for life. Time to open up your virtual guest book and watch all the messages your family and friends submitted! Log back into the to watch the love your guests left in all the videos. Did they tell a funny story? Share some advice? Whatever they decide to leave, we know it will be uniquely you.
