29 Creative Wedding Signs You'll Love
Big or small, all weddings need direction. Enter cute, quirky, and personalized signs, that share all that important info—like what time the bride will walk down the aisle, when guests should file in into the reception, and what's for dinner—that guests absolutely need to know. But the following signs aren't your average pieces of poster board. From chalkboard to wooden posts, these real wedding props are cute, customized elements that majorly up the wow factor at a ceremony or reception.
While details like where to go and what time specific events begin are helpful, your signs don't have to be purely information. Enlist a calligrapher to craft a pretty welcome piece or to simply help show off your new monogram—after the Champagne starts flowing, it doesn't hurt to remind your attendees who's getting hitched. The creativity doesn't stop there. From quirky illustrations, glass art, neon signage, and salvaged driftwood stake, there are endless ways to make these pieces your own. In fact, they're the perfect opportunity to personalize your wedding with quotes, photos, and sentiments that mean the most to you and your new spouse.
All of the following signs are majorly creative, but we're particularly fond of one that encouraged guests' safety. A bride and groom set up a yellow neon sign, with pegs for wedding attendees to hang up their keys. The piece's text urged guests to take the shuttle back to their hotel after the reception instead of driving, which ultimately led to the hosts' peace of mind and a better time overall.
