Typewriter Guest Book




  • Typewriter
  • Long sheets of paper
  • Ribbons


  1. Step 1

    Set out an old-fashioned typewriter with long sheets of paper for guests to write good wishes to the bride and groom as the feeling strikes. Look for inexpensive vintage machines online or at thrift stores or flea markets; they come in colors to go with any palette.

  2. Step 2

    After the wedding, tie into a scroll with ribbon.

    Where to get the paper though!? I've called numerous paper compies and all I can come up with is a 225' roll! That's 200' too much...

    I love this idea. Where can you get long sheets of paper like they mention?

    I love this, but did people actually take time to type messages? I really want to use this idea for my vintage wedding, but also want to make sure people actually participate. Any ideas or thoughts?
