The Digital Video Guestbook!

Take advantage of technology that every guest brings to the event — their mobile phone and the internet
And create an amazing keepsake!

They can do it whenever and wherever they’re in the mood.



More fun for Guests

Lots of fun and laughs — like a photo booth — instead of just a dry, obligatory signature.

It’s something you’ll cherish forever!

Easy to share. Hard to lose

Press a button to create your merged, digital video. It will last forever.

And you’ll also  have link to share with family and friends, so they can re-enjoy the event again too!

One book in one place

There’s usually only one book, in one place, that can easily be missed.


People often forget to sign it

Easily lost

Books are easy to lose over the years as people move from house to house.

So they’re not a forever treasure

Limited space to write

There’s usually not much room to write, so comments are very pithy



Writing is often unintelligible/unreadable

Guestbooks — The old way

For most of history, guestbooks were made of paper.
As a result, they had many limitations:

Despite their shortcomings, Guestbooks were still nice keepsakes and pretty low cost, so we always had them at events!

Easy for you. Easy for Guests.

No need for an expensive videocamera booth

No need to set up an iPad somewhere that might be broken or lost

No need for guests to create an account or download an app

No need to touch a screen that’s already been touched by many others

How it works

1. Signage:

Choose from dozens of professionally designed templates, all containing your personalized QR code and suggested text.

Want a different message that’s more “you”? It’s easy to edit on screen.

Then print it yourself or send to a printer. We provde all the tips you need.

2. Video messages

Your guests scan your QR code and record a special heartfelt ... or funny ... message to you in seconds.



Whenever they’re in the mood.

No app or login needed.



And their video is immediately uploaded to your private account, in full quality, organized and ready for you at any time.

3. Merge and enjoy forever:

After the event, press a button to merge all clips into one single video.

Grab the popcorn and view the entire story.



Or first fine-tune it with some extra, creative touches with our easy-to-use Editing Suite. 


Whenever you’re ready, share the link with friends and family or keep it private — it’s totally up to you.

1. Design your signage

We make it easy for you to design an event poster and table cards to match your theme — going for “light and airy” or “dark and moody”? Somewhere in between? Don’t worry, we’ve got a template for you.

We provide wording you can use or edit to your taste.

We also suggest ideas you can add to your web page to help your guests think about what to say.

2. Place Your Signage

Print your signage yourself or send to your
printer.

Place your signage around your reception —
several at each table and areas with foot traffic
such as a Photo Booth line, a bar line or restroom line.

3. Guests record their video messages

Guests scan the QR code and are whisked to your web page.

Give your guests ideas or suggest freestyle! You’ll love seeing the wonderful and hilarious memories your friends leave, or the advice of your favourite Aunt on your wedding day.

Psst — here’s where you can really show your unique side: give your guests a challenge, like silliest dance or funniest memory 😄

Just tap to record. It's as easy as that!

4. Watch and enjoy!

All videos are uploaded directly to your app in full quality, ready and waiting for you. No need to organize anything.

Whenever you're ready, log in, press a button and merge all the videos into one movie. Easy peasy.

And with 15 minutes of effort, you'll have a priceless keepsake to enjoy for a lifetime!

FAQs

How is this different from (eg) Happy Birthday videos?

You may have participated in a group birthday or wedding video before, where you record a message remotely, before someone's big day. Then someone merges all the clips into a single video and shares it with a loved one as a surprise on the special day. They're terrific — We provide a fantastic service for those too!

Our new Video Guestbook feature is different. It's designed for at the event video messages from guests, capturing the special mood and spirit of the event.

An amazing keepsake!

How long can Contributors’ video clips be?

They can be any length they wish — just not boring 😄  (and if they are, you can trim it in the app).

Who can see the video?

Producers (that’s you) have complete control. We don’t automatically share with anyone. Instead, we give you the tools so you can share it (or not share it) with whomever you wish.

Can I download the final video?

Absolutely. There’s a download button on the Process and Share page.

What our customers are saying:

Michelle Sinclair

With video guestbook, I knew it would be nice to see my guests in the moment - while they were eating dinner, while they were dancing - it was so much better to see the moment versus just reading it on a piece of paper!

Jake Brown

We highly recommend using the Video Guestbook! It was much better than having a physical one that gets tossed in a closet somewhere. We were able to have our guests leave us some really creative submissions and put it all together into a video that we can keep handy for us to watch any time we want.

Marisa Cole

It was a really easy process from beginning to end, the website made a lot of sense and none of our guests had any questions about how to upload! We had so many people tell us that this was their favourite portion of the wedding.

Let’s Start the Party!

We know the memories you make are priceless - we’ll help you keep and cherish them forever.
