There are a lot of signs that point to what your wedding will look and feel like. Even signs of love from your significant other. And of course the signs we don’t want to see when trying to seat everyone in harmony at the reception… However, we’re talking about actual signs!
Signage at weddings have become a fun way to personalize your big day, and we can’t stop gushing over our favorite Pinterest finds, because let’s face it, besides this blog, ;), Pinterest is the mecca for wedding inspiration. And so, here are 5 Wedding “Signs” we love…
1. “Down-the-Aisle” Signs
Every little girl or boy would love to have a fun job to do besides the traditional petal throwing or ring-bearing. A “Here Comes The Love of Your Life” sign absolutely melts our hearts. It will trigger many “oohs and ahhs” as your guests await your big arrival. Also, if it fits into your theme, how could you resist these little cowboy boots??? Absolutely charming!
Here are a great “Set of 2” signs for the ceremony found on our website. The “Here comes the Bride” sign for the ceremony entrance an the “Just Married’ sign for the exit:
2. Initial or Monogram Signs
As long as you keep your distance and don’t actually walk under the rustic ladder, you’ll be safe from the wrath of the superstitious. This is perfect for a barn wedding or any type of classic vintage theme. The initials give it a touch of custom, plus I don’t know about you, but after the wedding, this would double as the best corner in my house because I would have it as part of my home decor. Another great idea if you want it to be more than just an ode to your names, it’s a great place to house your escort cards. They can be placed on the steps around the details of the decor and guests can walk up and find their table number.
3. Direction Signs:
If there’s a bit of confusion or a little bit of a hike to get to your reception after the ceremony or to the ceremony upon arrival, instead of letting your guests wander the streets or the halls of your venue, place fun personalized signs that will help guide them. Along the way, to make it fun you can also setup a small area where they can stop and take a few snaps on a fun background next to your sign. Sort of like a walk-thru photo booth so the momentum for what’s to come stays alive during every part of your day.
These vintage directional signs are a great recommendation and can be purchased right on our website:
4. Guest Signs
This idea is another that doubles and even triples in functionality. Besides playing the role of decor, it also is a way to customize by providing your namesake during the event and now you can even ask your guests to write well wishes to cherish forever. Win, Win and Win.

5. Social Signs
Even if you’ve tried to stay away from social media, you’re really going to lose your battle. So instead of trying to beat them, join them and collect all your snaps from your day from everyone who attended! Create a fun hashtag that can incorporate your name, the location of the wedding, a fun and catchy play on names or wedding sayings. Virtually anything will work, just make sure that you find one that doesn’t already have images from others tagged to it. The key is to be as creative as possible while tying back to the theme of the wedding in some way. Also try and keep them as short and easy to remember as possible. You’ll want as many images tagged as you can get. Having snapping!
