It’s the beginning of February and what does that mean? For most of us it’s the long pause between Christmas and Valentine’s Day. But across the land are couples with pen and paper in their hand at this moment planning their dream wedding that will occur in the spring or summer.
For most brides, a surfboard is not on that list, but if your fiancé surfs or you do, you can incorporate your love of it into your wedding plans without it looking out of place. Here’s my top five suggestions.
Guestbooks have taken a sharp left from the days of the white satin book sitting at the front door of the church. With the invention of permanent markers, you can make your guestbook out of just about anything. So why not a surfboard?
Surfboard guestbooks are great because they lay flat, making it easier for guests to sign. Guests can use any permanent marker which gives the couple a way to remember their friends and loved ones who came. They are totally customizable including color, font choice, words and graphics.
We are 100% pleased with our wedding guestbook surfboard. The size is perfect and the seller made the shape exactly how we asked for it to be made. The colors are perfect. I would definitely (and probably soon will) buy from this shop again and I would recommend to anyone! We really love that we will have the best wedding guestbook! Thank you!

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Gifts
Let’s face it, the dudes in your wedding want something cool for their gift. The girls? Well girls just love something with their name or monogram on it. This is by far the most unique gift you could give them. Who wouldn’t hang that?
Your groomsmen and bridesmaids are going to be a big help to you and your fiancé. This is a great way to say “thank you” with a gift they’ll love.
Pre-wedding Party Decor
Got a surf, beach or luau themed party or shower planned? Our bigger boards make a real WOW statement at parties as part of the decorations. Again, you can display the bride and groom’s names and wedding date or the shower/party date and a saying. Maybe it’s the theme of the party or wedding, like “Tim and Jen Tie the Knot”.
This is a great idea when you want to incorporate your love of surfing but not at the wedding. Later, the couple has a stylish piece to display in their living room, office, mancave, family room, wherever!
Photo Booth Prop
Photo booths are all the rage at events right now. From rented booths to DIY backdrops, it is the most fun way to remember the day. If you’ve ever taken a photo in one, then you know.
Make your booth unique with some clip in hair flowers, sunglasses, some leis, one of our surfboard signs and voila! Since you can personalize it, when the wedding is over, you have a nice piece to take home. For years to come you and your friends and family will be laughing, and they’ll always remember your anniversary because it’ll be in the picture, wink wink.
A Unique Sign
We get requests every single week from couples wanting to remember their special day with one of our surfboards. Most would like their names and the date of the wedding. Some have a special quote between them that they want displayed or want to use a timeless phrase like “Happily Ever After” or “Two Less Fish in the Sea”. Some even send their own logo.
Other fun uses would be a “Here Come the Bride” sign for the Ring Bearer or Flower Girl, or just a beautiful directional sign at the entrance stating the wedding party, “Hamilton Wedding”. When it’s all over, it’s a beautiful piece of artwork to hang in the new couple’s home.
If you or your fiancé have a love of surfing, there’s no reason why you can’t bring that into your wedding plans. Browse through the wedding section of www.markersix.com and see other couple’s ideas or email us and we’ll be more than happy to work with you to create something truly special for your big day. Have fun with it!
