Wedding Signage

Wedding signage is becoming a huge trend in the wedding world.  Couples use wedding signage in many ways for multitudes of reasons.  It can easily (and frugally) add touches of elegance, glamour, humor and whimsicality to your wedding.

Wedding signs can also be exceedingly helpful to guests and save them from possible confusion.  They can lead them to ceremony sites, cocktail hours and reception areas.  They can also tell them where to sit at the ceremony.  If you have a tight budget you could even write the itinerary on a chalkboard(or any other kind of signage) and display it for everyone to see as they enter or leave the ceremony.  Your wedding coordinator will of course handle these details, though it never hurts to have a back up and some extra decor!

There are a few ways to get wedding signage.  One way is to simply order it online.  There are many websites that have pre-made signs that you can buy.  You can also custom order online or ask a local craft store if they offer custom signage.  Or, if your crafty, then you can make your own!

Before you set off to the store to make your own signs, decide on what kind of signs you want to make.  If you're incorporating multiple signs into your wedding, you will want them to be fairly consistent.  Next, you can either look up a tutorial online on how to make your desired sign or you can consult someone from your local craft store.  Here are some examples of wedding signage and how they can be incorporated into your theme.

The wood frame and chalkboard sign adds to the rustic feel of this wedding.  

The mix of different fonts on this chalkboard is so creative and fun.

The black, white and pink on this glossed sign is very classy and elegant.

Our team loves burlap!
  It really brings out the rustic and chicness of this outdoor reception.

I love how festive this colorful sign is.  It's so fun and inviting!

Gold frames are a great way to create a vintage atmosphere with hardly any effort.
