How to Use Mirror Signs at Your Wedding

Move over, chalkboard! Well, we still love our beloved chalkboards but mirror signs are taking center stage at weddings as a chic alternative. A mirror can be hand-lettered with a paint pen (like these, which have a fine point) to add an extra dose of pretty to your ceremony or reception space. We’ve seen them used as welcome signs for guests, we’ve seen a mirror in lieu of a paper program, as a bar menu, and more. Today we’re sharing how to use mirror signs at your wedding with five unique finds. Plus, we found a few other mirror inspired decor we know you’d love. Check it all out below…

Wedding Mirror Signs

1. Use a mirror to welcome guests

A simple mirror and paint will do!

3. A sign can be used to show guests to their seats.

At the reception, a mirror sign can be used as a seating chart. Here are two examples:

4. Use a sign to draw attention to a special bar.

Having a cigar or scotch bar for the gentlemen? A mirror sign will really make it POP.

This is especially fitting if you have a signature beverage or cocktail.

Every Wedding Should Have These Coasters

When I went to a wedding last summer, the funniest thing happened. Every time I went to dance, I came back and my drink was gone. Poof. Not empty… missing. Does this happen to you, too? It’s a common occurrence at wedding receptions where the tables are constantly cleared of glasses and silverware in an attempt to keep things neat and tidy.

I get it, I really do. But honestly. I was only gone a minute!

Anyways, that’s why after I found these, I had to let you in on the secret. Every wedding should have these coasters.

The coasters read—quite brilliantly, might I add—“Please don’t take my drink. I’m dancing”.

Smart. Simple. I like.

Love These Wedding Coasters?

I found them at Evermine where you can order yours in a plethora of pretty colors.
