They add gorgeous, original décor features to your venue, keep your guests in the know. and make for beautiful detail pictures you can treasure forever.

If you have a large venue, or perhaps even and outdoor venue, signage will be a must! Your guests want to know where everything is happening.

Whilst you may not want to force people into particular seats at the ceremony, you want the first couple of rows to be filled with the people the mean that most to you.

Order of Day Signage

When I got married I made ‘Order of Day’ cards for each individual chair. 99% of these were thrown away at the end of the ceremony. Save time, creative DIY planning and money by creating a wedding day time line. Perfect for letting your guests know how the day is going to flow. It can be as detailed as you like, and the different ways you can display this are endless. Keep an eye out for a DIY post coming VERY soon!

Got a cute page boy or flower girl leading the procession down the aisle? Instead of giving them flowers or rings, let them have the responsibility in telling your groom and your guests you are on your way. Make it cute or funny, your guests will be blubbing way before you make your entrance.
Social Media Signs

Whether you want your wedding to be ‘unplugged’ or want your day documented across social media, let your guests know. Creating a hashtag for Instagram is a great way for you to look up all the pictures your guests have taken in one place. Try to think of something creative and that links to your day. #thesmithswedding may find you sharing the same hashtag with 1 or 2 (or more like 100+) other couples.
Cute Love Quote Signs

If your wedding venue is clean, crisp, modern, but plain at the same time, use wedding signs to help fill your venue with gorgeous items that match your theme. Cute love quotes or song lyrics on mirror, glass or chalkboard frames help set the scene. Go with things that mean something to you as a couple and sporadically place them throughout your venue.

Whilst we all love our nearest and dearest, we all know that there is always one that may miss the point. Have a sweet table you want your guests to gorge on? Tell them. Want your guests to help themselves to confetti cones, blankets or flip flops? Tell them! This is where wedding signage takes centre stage. Label your stations in a gorgeous, creative way like this stunning confetti cone sign.

Whilst weddings are a serious game, you want to keep the mood light-hearted and fun. Display quirky and funny signs throughout your venue. Think funny toilet signs with you both as children or remind everyone no great party started with a salad…set the tone for what you want your guests to experience.

Forget name cards. Chair signs are the way forward! If you cant afford to make (or buy) signs for every single chair, make sure you and that new hubby get special treatment. A cute sign like the one above or go for something more relaxed and humorous like “I Do” & “I Do As I’m Told”.

Tell your guests what you want them to do! Stuff their face in cake? Tell them to go ahead! Get involved in the photo booth? Tell them! Make use of the gift baskets you’ve placed in the toilets? Tell them! If they don’t know, they won’t do it! You have spent that money and time making that element a big part of your day, encourage your guests to use it.
Thank You Sign

Thank you cards are a really nice touch once the wedding is over and the wedding blues kick in (they are real!) Have another wedmin task to do once the big day is over and make sure you have the perfect image for your thank you cards. Create a gorgeous thank you sign to feature in your big day photographs. Card images sorted and much more personal than a general thank you card.
