Maximize Your Digital Guestbook Experience

Welcome to Quilted's guide on making the most of your digital guestbook! This journey you're about to embark on is all about connection, celebration, and cherishing memories. We understand how important it is to include all your loved ones in your special day, no matter where they are. The following tips will help you create a vibrant digital guestbook that seamlessly blends into your wedding festivities. From the early planning stages to the post-wedding follow-up, we're here to ensure your digital guestbook is a unique and cherished keepsake of your wedding. In this guide, you will find tips on how to maximize success before, during, and after the wedding, as well as templated language you can use at each step along the way. Let's begin your unforgettable journey!

Before the Wedding

You’ll receive both a custom URL that you can copy / paste, as well as a custom QR code. Post the story link / QR code on your wedding website or wherever you are sharing travel or accommodations info.

Share the link via text, email, etc with any family members or friends who are unable to make it to your big day so they can feel a part of the festivities and can send you their wishes

Include the QR code / link at your rehearsal dinner or any gatherings leading up to your wedding day. Such as: Add to evite / digital invitations, welcome signage at the event , display on a screen during the event, etc.

During the Wedding

Print the QR code with brief instructions such as “Sign our Digital Guestbook!” anywhere your guests may have a chance to briefly interact, such as:

  • Welcome table
  • Reception table centerpieces
  • Buffet tables / bar / cake table
  • Near table seating map
  • Placesettings
  • Screen / slideshow
  • Display the QR code on wedding favors or send off supplies (think printing the QR code and tying to bubbles with ribbon, as an example).
  • Others: Cocktail napkins, printed menus, business cards at various tables throughout the venue.

Print the QR code with brief instructions such as “Sign our Digital Guestbook!” anywhere your guests may have a chance to briefly interact, such as:

After the Wedding

Again, if folks take the time to at least “sign” your virtual guestbook by adding their name and contact info, we will automatically send them reminders until your story due date, encouraging them to add their videos / photos if they haven’t had time yet.

Add your QR code / story link to your thank you cards

Feel free to re-share your story link out via social, your wedding website, text message, email, or any other way you might be communicating with your loved ones after the fact

If one of your bridesmaids or family members may be helping you to ping attendees to send their photos / videos of the day, be sure to ask them to include your story link as well to remind everyone to add to your digital guestbook.

Tips on Crafting the Ultimate Prompts

Keep It Personal

The best prompts often come from personal stories or inside jokes that you share with your guests. Make your prompts specific and tied to your relationship for truly unique and heartfelt responses.


Open-Ended Questions

Try to keep your prompts as open-ended as possible. This encourages guests to share more of their thoughts and experiences rather than limiting them to a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer.


Make It Engaging

The more engaging the prompt, the more likely your guests are to respond. Ask for stories, memories, or advice that would be interesting for you to hear and fun for your guests to share.


Consider Different Perspectives

Remember, your guests will have different relationships with you as a couple. Some may be close family, others longtime friends, and others may be newer friends or colleagues. Make sure your prompts are inclusive and relevant to a broad range of relationships.


Encourage Creativity

Don't be afraid to include prompts that invite your guests to get creative. This could be asking them to share a piece of advice in the form of a poem, or to suggest a 'theme song' for your marriage, or to describe a dream vacation for you.


Guidance on Length

While you want detailed answers, keep in mind that people may not have a lot of time to respond. Let your guests know that their responses can be as short or as long as they like, to accommodate different preferences and time constraints.


Mix Serious and Light-Hearted

A mix of serious and light-hearted prompts will provide a good balance and keep your digital guestbook interesting. For example, you might ask for marriage advice in one prompt, and in another ask guests to predict the couple's future adventures.


Prompt Preview

Share your prompts with a few close friends or family members to get feedback. This can help you ensure your prompts are clear, engaging, and inclusive.


Reflect Your Personality

Above all, your prompts should reflect you as a couple. If you're known for your sense of humor, include funny prompts. If you're adventurous, ask for travel recommendations. The more your prompts reflect your personality, the more personal and meaningful the responses will be.
