Wedding signs are a way to show guests where your wedding is located and to point people in the right direction for all of the specific areas of the reception. They are particularly important for outdoor weddings or for weddings in locations that are difficult to find. Other signs can be fun and help give guests information such as where to find the sweets table, where the bar is located or where the dance floor is at. In addition to being a cute way to give directions, signs can also be a wonderful addition to wedding photos. For example, the groom can hold a “Mr.” sign while the bride holds a “Mrs.” sign to create a very clever picture.
Signs can be made from a wide variety of materials and can be created to fit perfectly with your wedding theme. For example, if you have a beach theme you can make beachy looking signs using driftwood to show where the reception is located. Other fun signs could be placed to show “beach this way” or “beware of the jellyfish”. These are signs that help to create the atmosphere you’re looking for and add to the authenticity of the décor.
Signs can be held in place using a sign holder, a frame, an easel, or by securing it to an object or the wall. To decide what signs to use first make a drawing of the venue showing all the areas where your main sections will be located. Then, look at the drawing to see where signs could be used to make the décor come alive and to add more interest. Signs can be made on a wide variety of materials so get creative! You can make the signs yourself by using a stick on letters, stencils, or freehand lettering.
Get signs made to indicate where the reception is being held, where the ceremony is, and for other various sections of the wedding. Add signs for the sweet table, wedding cake, gift table, DJ, bar, and any other areas of importance. You’ll also want a sign that says “just married” that can be placed on the back of the car when the couple leaves the ceremony and reception.
