Wedding Sign Ideas To Point You In The Right Direction

Yes, we all want our wedding signs to look totally and utterly beautiful. But, let’s not forget the practicalities.

If your guests don’t know what’s coming up next in your wedding timeline, don’t know what to do with your photo booth set up or can’t find the loos. Quite frankly your signs are letting you down. So first and foremost, your wedding day signage needs to be informative!

Go through your wedding timeline and do a venue recce. Then take a look at the following points to ensure your wedding sign list is covered:

Is it hard to find your venue and do you need some direction signs on the road?
Do guests know where to park?
Can key facilities be found easily? Toilets/Bar/Seating Area/Dancefloor etc.
Would you like to welcome guests with a sign? It can help them feel secure knowing they are in the right place!
Do you fancy adding personality and your tone of voice?
Are there special words you’d like on display?
Should you need to label certain tables or areas? Cake/Guest Book/Photo Booth/Glitter Bar/Favours/Sparklers etc.
Would you like to enhance your photos or couple portraits?
Do guests know the running order of your day?
Are you reserving seats during the ceremony?
Planning an unplugged ceremony? A sign is a great reminder.
Think about signage to add extra decor or hide unsightly parts in your venue.
