Whether you are newly engaged or about to cross the finish line with wedding planning, you absolutely need to see this post! One of the easiest ways you can personalize your ceremony and reception comes down to one thing: signage. Today we’re talking about personalized, beautiful, one-of-a-kind signage that guests will not only notice but remember for years to come. There are a handful of unexpected places where signage can be added and many of these might surprise you. Read on to find out more to beautify your space…
Signage Ideas for Weddings
1. Welcome Signage
First and foremost, a welcome sign is the most visible decoration at your wedding right from the start. A welcome sign exists exactly as you might think: it welcomes guests to your wedding. A sign such as this one from Paper and Pine Co. will include your name, wedding date, and even a special hashtag for social media to get the party – and photo sharing – started. A welcome sign also lets guests know they’ve found the right place, particularly if your wedding is in a wider location such as the woods, on the beach, or at a farm, or if parking was a short walk away.
2. Fun Facts Signage
This is one sign you probably haven’t even considered, but we think it’s a pretty brilliant idea. A “fun facts” sign at your wedding will encourage guests to learn more about you as a couple and as individuals. For example, if a guest may be more familiar with the bride, this gives them the opportunity to learn more about the groom.
3. Ceremony Aisle Signage
There are two ideas you can use here and we recommend picking one or the other. You can have a sign at the end of the aisle with your names…
or signage down the aisle as decor. This one is a favorite of mine:
4 & 5. Pick a Seat and Programs Signage
This next example showcases how to use two signs beautifully in one placement: a “pick a seat” sign, so guests know they do not have to pick a side for seating, and a “programs” sign so guests know to grab one on their way to their seat.
6. Reserved Signage
Want to hold a special row for your parents, or a special seat for grandma? Use a reserved sign, like this one:
7. Guestbook Signage
It’s a shame to have a beautiful guest book, but no way of guests seeing it to sign it! A sign will help draw attention to the guest book table and encourage guests to scribble in their name and best wishes.
8. Memory Table Signage
If you’d like to make a special table in honor of loves ones who have passed, this signage will accent it beautifully.
9. Bar Signage
While guests will already be able to figure out where the bar is, signage can make yours really pop. If you’re having a bubbly bar, cocktails area, wine bar, or want to share a signature drink, this is the way to do it!
10. Whiskey and Cigar Bar Signage
A cigar and whiskey bar sounds fun, especially for the groomsmen! This sign will draw attention to it:
11. Card Box Signage
You’ll need a card box for guests to place their wedding cards upon arrival. Here is a cute way to do it — and we especially love it because you’ll want to re-use the box even after the big day as decor.
12. Escort Card Signage
When guests reach your reception, help them find their seat with this escort card signage.
13. Table Number/Name Signage
With escort card signage, you’ll also want your table numbers or names to pop! These signs will do the trick. We recommend using table names instead of numbers if you want to add a personalized touch. (See our huge inspiration post here!)
14. Chair Signage
Chair signs are one of the sweetest ways to dress up the bride and groom’s chairs. Here are a few — and don’t miss this huge post we did on a handful of others.
15. Favor Signage
Don’t let guests miss the favors table! Use signage like this one for cookie favors:
Have you ever considered a glow stick table? This was just so fun we had to share it:
You can buy a mass amount of glow sticks for cheap here.
And last but not least…
16. Favorite Quote Signage
If there’s another area you want to highlight and personalize, just add a favorite quote, such as a song lyric or bible reading, wherever you see fit.
And there you have it! These ideas should get you inspired for your own ceremony or reception space. You can see more signs like these here. Also, be sure to check out the signage in The Marketplace here.
