One of the biggest wedding trends at the moment is the use of wedding signs. Whether used for welcoming guests, leading loved ones to and from ceremony sites and reception venues, or announcing the bridal party or important wedding activies, there's a sign for nearly every element of your wedding timeline. Wood signs and chalkboard signage work beautifully for a rustic-inspired event, or even an elegant formal wedding with a hint of country style.
Adding calligraphy or hand lettering is another way to make signs pop, whether applied with white paint, chalk, or another material of your choice. The options for creative wedding signs are endless! The popular phrase, "Choose a Seat, Not a Side," is perfect for couples wishing to join their families together as soon as possible, and cute sayings like "Eat, Drink, and Be Married" can be displayed at buffet stations or wedding bars.
