What is your fondest memory of the Beatles

Wedding: Help, what do I write in the guest book?

Anyone who has ever been to a wedding knows the problem. At some point the guest book is passed around and you only have a few minutes to leave the couple a good wish or a lovely saying. The next guest is already waiting, possibly even asking his predecessor when he is ready. You just don't want to write “Alles Liebe” in it and don't write anything in it is also not an alternative.

Many a guest tries to let a drawing speak for itself. However, unless you put down more than stick figures on paper, this is not a suitable option either. In general, the couple is always happy to receive a warm thank you. So that your guestbook entry does not go under, we reveal the most beautiful sayings, quotes and wishes for your guestbook entry.


Guest book with given questions

In some guest books it is made easier for friends and relatives by asking questions such as “What is your best memory of the couple?” Or “What was the best moment of the wedding?”. In this case, all you have to do is write down what you have experienced. You can also use these questions to formulate your entry - even if there are no questions in the book.

Personal memories always go down well

If you know the bride or groom very well and are close friends or even related, you can use your memories. In this case, honest and personal sentences are never out of place. There are a few things you can think about before the wedding.

What was the best moment in your friendship? What ups and downs did you experience together? How did the bride / groom talk and rave about their current spouse at the beginning of the relationship? Funny anecdotes and memorable moments are particularly useful. Make sure, however, that it doesn't get too spicy - after all, the other guests often read the other authors' entries.

Also, remember to be brief. As a rule, all guests want to immortalize themselves, which is why you shouldn't need too much time (and pages).


Romantic quotes for the guest book entry

If you are not close friends with the couple, or if you generally struggle with words, you can also use what other people have said in contemporary history. A romantic quote is also good at the end of a personal anecdote. After all, romance is quite desirable at a wedding.

Poems, songs and films as inspiration for the text in the guest book

Poems are also popular for dedication in the guest book. Some guests trust themselves and create their own little rhyme for the wedding couple. However, if that is not for you, you can use classical poems by personalities such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe or William Shakespeare. Do you like it more modern? Then let yourself be inspired by movie quotes about love or by lyrics - after all, love songs are also a kind of poem.

"Do you doubt that the stars are glowing,

but never doubt love. "

Funny wedding sayings for humorous bridal couples

Do the wedding couple share your kind of humor? In this case, you can also think of a cheeky guest book entry. A brisk saying is sure to make the bride and groom smile.


Danger: For this type of entry, you should know the couple a little better, or at least be able to laugh at the same things. Otherwise, this type of congratulation could also be misunderstood.

"Marriage is the attempt to cope with problems as a couple that one would never have had alone."

Woddy Allen


"Love is the light of life - the electricity bill comes in marriage."

Alfred Hitchcock


"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bike."

Gloria Steinem

Tip: Avoid empty phrases

As difficult as it may be for you to write, do not use hackneyed phrases such as “Thank you for the wonderful evening” or “Thank you for the nice party”. Adjectives like “beautiful” and “nice” are used far too often and do not express the uniqueness of a wedding. Use words like “excellent”, “fabulous”, “happy”, “wonderful”.

Ted is loading, please wait ...

Fortunately, you know months in advance that you are invited to a wedding. Just as you choose a gift for the couple, you should also think about the guest book entry for a moment. If you decide on a quote or an unusual saying, write it down beforehand. Once the book is in front of you, you can copy it down. You can also quickly search for a saying on the Internet with your smartphone. However, it looks like you haven't given any thought.

No matter what kind of congratulations you choose, the gesture counts. Give your entry a personal touch. The bride and groom will be happy about this long after the celebration.
