What's the new Audio Guest Book trend at weddings and why are people getting them? They're super cute looking and they have a retro personal feel to them for guests to leave personal message for you and your fiancé. And they absolutely beat pen and paper guestbooks! Do you want one for your wedding? Here's some pros and cons to the wedding Audio Guestbook!
A personalised wedding day is something you should absolutely be striving for, and the more customised flair, the better in our opinion! The Audio Guestbooks are relatively cheap to rent for your wedding, average $250 - $500.
It's your wedding, and your day, so if you want an Audio Guestbook, they are super retro and cute. But does the recorded message idea last? How many times are you going to open up that USB or online link from the Audio Guest Book to re-listen to messages? And if someone doesn't leave their name, you won't even know who left it!
You could sooner rent a Photo Booth with a video option add-on where guests could record a message just for you, instead of the audio only guestbook (we're calling it the Audio Video Guestbook Rental). This feels like more of a win-win! Your guests can leave you an awesome message, and then take a Photo Booth capture of themselves that can either get printed or shared to their phone. You get an awesome message, and your guests get something to remember the night.
At the end of the day, the audio guestbook is a cool idea for your wedding that's also affordable, but I would wonder if it's something that you would sit and listen to after! Another really fun idea I have seen is when a close family member brought their retro cam-corder to film and record super candid moments of the wedding. For me, video will outlast a voice message any day, so before you spend your money on a trend, consider if it's something you really want. Again, it's way better than pen and paper scribbles you won't be able to read after your wedding.
