Wedding Signage Ideas
WEDDING SIGNS: #1. A Welcome Sign
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.
WEDDING SIGNS: #2. Social media sign
A unique hashtag sign is a must-have for guests to share their snaps! Create a fun hashtag for your wedding and have it displayed onto a wedding sign like this. Photo by DaniStephenson.
WEDDING SIGNAGE IDEAS: #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:
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
In addition, a programs sign ensures your guests grab one as they make their way to their seats.
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
WEDDING SIGNS: #8. Memory Table Signage
If you’d like to make a special table in honor of loved ones who have passed, this signage will accent it beautifully.
WEDDING SIGNAGE IDEAS: #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!
WEDDING SIGNS: #10. Whiskey and Cigar Bar Signage
A cigar and whiskey bar sounds fun, especially for the groomsmen! This sign will draw attention to it:
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
WEDDING SIGNS: #12. Escort Card Signage
When guests reach your reception, help them find their seat with this escort card signage. This is one of the most creative wedding signage ideas: we love how it says, “find your seat, party animal”!
WEDDING SIGNS: #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!)
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
Also love this “I would walk 500 miles” and “I would walk 500 more” chair sign set. (Photos: E Bea Photography and Kimberly Lind Photography)
WEDDING SIGNS: #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.
WEDDING SIGN IDEAS: #16. Here Comes the Bride
Skip the traditional flower girl basket or ring pillow and carry a sign instead! This is one of the most popular wedding sign ideas in this list.
And last but not least…
WEDDING SIGNS: #17. 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: 17 creative wedding signage ideas to inspire you for your own ceremony and reception space.
