Wedding signs are one of the coolest (and easiest) ways to personalize your ceremony and reception spaces. Most of the time, signs are the easiest thing to add because a sign can stand up on its own or be placed on a simple easel, like this, right at your ceremony or reception entrance. Guests always seem to take notice of signs and couples love them too! We’ve seen couples go crazy over wedding welcome signs, directional signs, signage at the bar (like a signature cocktail sign), chair signs, ceremony aisle signs, and even this fun printable bathroom sign. And while you could place signage throughout your entire wedding space, we recommend just a few. As with most things, just a few will do so you aren’t overwhelming your space.

The lovely Country Bliss Designs makes these “Love is Patient” signs based on the popular verse from 1 Corinthians 13, a favorite among couples as a ceremony reading. As you walk down the aisle, you’ll see the verse written out on large, easy-to-read signage with pretty calligraphy. Take a look! It’s today’s #HANDMADEADAY pick!

Here Comes the Bride Sign — Handmade-a-Day


by lily and val

I love a classic chalkboard sign, especially when it features lovely hand-drawn lettering from Lily and Val. That’s why when I saw this Here Comes the Bride sign, I couldn’t resist sharing it immediately as our Handmade-a-Day pick. As a bonus, this sign is double-sided and features the words Just Married on the opposite side. Your flower girl can carry this sign down the aisle in lieu of tossing petals before your grand entrance. After the ceremony, she can flip it over and lead the way for the newlyweds through the procession. The Just Married sign can also be used as reception decor or even on your getaway car en route to your honeymoon. Take a look!

To give guests a warm welcome at your outdoor wedding (in the woods, the mountains, at a barn, on the beach, etc.), directional signs are the easiest way to do it. For outdoor venues, guests should easily identify your location from the parking area. Moreover, when you are getting married at a highly populated area — like a crowded beach spot or resort — guests feel comfortable knowing they’ve arrived at the right ceremony. And finding things like the dance floor, the bar, and the bathroom are definite pluses. Proper wedding signage is essential and today we’re sharing a few ideas of directional signs for weddings from iDecor4You. Elizaveta and Dimitry are experts in personalized directional signs for weddings and events. Check out what we’ve found from their shop!

Have you picked out a flower girl basket for your ceremony yet? If your venue allows the traditional tossing of petals, you will need a vessel to hold them all. (If your venue prohibits it, here are some alternatives.) What kind of basket should you choose? That’s entirely up to you! When I wrote my book, The Inspired Wedding, I shared tons of ways you can tie your decor into your wedding theme. When it comes to ceremony, flower girl baskets can take on many different looks. For instance, a birch bark container with an added handle can become a flower girl basket for a more rustic or woodland wedding. Other vessels such as pails, purses, wood boxes, planters, and jewelry boxes can work in a pinch. If it ties into your wedding theme and can hold a small amount of petals, it counts as a flower girl basket. Today we’re sharing some of our favorite themed flower girl basket ideas to help you decide. See them all below and find out two key tips to remember when picking out a basket. Enjoy!

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. It’s Friday already, can you believe it? I am still wrapping my head around the fact that it is September. Not just early September, but already half-past. Good things ahead, though– October is one of the prettiest months ever. It’s chillier, cozier, and leaves start to change color. Andrew and I have been going on walks with the kids lately and there’s a spot through the woods that looks totally gorgeous this time of year. I can’t wait to see the scenery change as the weeks go by.

Anyways, earlier today we talked about how to pick a wedding veil and now we’re sharing a unique ring bearer box for your ceremony. While a ring pillow is the first thing brides think they need for their ceremony, it’s not the only way to carry those rings down the aisle. We’ve talked about ring pillow alternatives in the past but a ring bearer box is the top choice right now for couples. Read on to find out why and enter for a chance to win one by Woodstorming, experts in ring bearer boxes and accessories. Enjoy!
