How to Use Fun Signage on Your Wedding Day

From the start of the ceremony to the grand exit, a good sign will lead your guests.

One of the biggest trends in the post-Pinterest era of weddings has been stylish and clever signage with fun sayings to get necessary messages across to guests. From chalkboards, to windows, to wood, to mirrors, a variety of surfaces have been used to advertise different portions of the celebration. Welcome signs to the ceremony, especially to dictate that attendees should sit wherever they choose, seem to be the most popular, and there are a variety of clever rhymes for engaged couples to use for their own nuptials. However, we’ve also seen signs used as programs, seating charts, and menus for signature cocktails. Did you and your sweetheart come up with a fun wedding hashtag? Make sure your guests know what it is by showcasing it on signage. Instructions for a unique guest book or grand exit can also be displayed this way. 

Below are some of our favorite examples from real weddings. Click each photo to see more from the celebrations!
