Are you looking for a custom last name sign for your wedding? We love this decoration idea and wish we had one for our wedding! This laser cut sign by NgoCreations is ideal as a custom family name sign at your wedding reception: it is bold, makes a beautiful statement, is easy to display, and can be used as a last name sign for mantle decor at home. The laser-cut sign is designed in a beautiful calligraphy typeface design and coordinates well with any wedding theme or design. Your sign includes the word “The” in cursive and your last name sign cut separately so you can display them however you’d like.
You’ll want to attach a picture hanging kit with D-rings and screws. It’s easy to do — and cheap! — and will ensure your last name sign stays put all day long.
Last Name Sign
Here’s everything you need to know about this custom signage for your wedding.
WHERE TO DISPLAY YOUR SIGN
You can display your new last name sign anywhere you’d like! Most couples choose to hang it on a wall; since it is heavier than a sticky photo mount tape, we recommend hanging it from a wedding backdrop instead since most venues won’t allow you to, ya know, nail anything to their walls. ;) My favorite: use a faux boxwood mat and attach your sign with this wire and ring kit. It’s easy! As a bonus, you can re-use the boxwood backdrop at home if you’d like; that’s something I’m working on right now, a big project plan we’ll be sharing ASAP on the blog.
Others like to use it as a head table sign. This is easy to prop up against a vase or centerpiece, as shown here:
DECORATE YOUR LAST NAME SIGN WITH FLOWERS
If you’d like to add paper flowers to your backdrop, re-create this look with flowers in your choice of color from Paperflora.
ADD STAIN OR PAINT
You can get your last name sign designed, cut, and painted in your choice of stain or color. Or if you’re a bit of a DIY bride (or prefer a natural wood grain look), they offer family name signs unfinished so you can make it your own.
We love the variety of these signs: you can choose family name signs in 24-inch, 30-inch, or 35-inch sizes. Your “The” on your name sign is proportionally scaled, so it is shorter in width compared to the last name but looks best this way.
WEDDING TIP: If you want a first name instead — just ‘Jessica’ for instance — to use at a bridal shower, bachelorette bash — the option is also available.
If you choose a raw finish, your name sign will be made with birch plywood. Otherwise, if painted, the sign is made of MDF.
As another example, consider your names with an ampersand in between. Here are a few examples of how awesome you can style them for your wedding decor.
