Over the years there has been a huge rise in the use of quirky wedding signs. Whether they are for navigating guests around your venue, encouraging the partaking of wedding activities or to evoke the right type of atmosphere for your special day, they are a great way to add a personal touch to your day.
Through a simple wedding sign you can add humour, emotion or romance, it’s just knowing what words to use. To help with your sign inspiration, here are some fantastic ideas your guests will adore.
Choose a seat not a side
The movement away from tradition has increased over the years, saying good bye to the likes of tossing of the bouquet and the use of blue pin, pink pin for seating at the ceremony.
Where to sit at a ceremony can cause confusion, so using wedding signs are a great way to make guests feel at ease and know where to go.
‘Take a seat, not a side’ is quite a nice common line to use, but other ideas include:
‘Friends of the Bride and Groom, please sit together, there is plenty of room!’
‘Best things are meant to be shared, please pick a seat anywhere’
‘You don’t have to pick sides, sit where ever you like’
She’s on her way
Getting kids involved in the wedding not only offers adorable photo opportunities, but also helps with behaviour. If a child feels important and included, they will have a sense of purpose and responsibility. Encourage your little bridesmaids/page boys to walk nicely down the aisle with a ‘here she come’s sign’. It’s a very important job don’t you know!
Wedding guest navigation
Where to go
If you’re having a big wedding event with plenty of entertainment, sign posts are always useful. This helps guests find exactly where to go and makes sure they don’t miss out on anything.
This also works well for outdoor weddings, adding a bit of personality and style to your event.
What to do
A great trend for weddings are little personalised keepsakes and messages for the couple to enjoy after their day. Messages on Jenga blocks, wishing trees and Polaroid selfies are all great ways to receive nuggets of advice and well wishes from guests. Encourage your guests to take part with a cute wedding sign, so they know exactly what to do.
Create that loving feeling
If you’re a couple who loves an inspirational quote, or messages of love around your home, why not incorporate this into your wedding day? It will encourage feels of romance, love and togetherness, which is what weddings are all about.
Treats for guests
Guests love a little treat at a wedding. Whether you want to save their dancing feet or celebrate your nuptials with a sparkler these little pleasures can be left all over your venue, let your guests know that they can take one with a cute little sign.
Instagram is now a major part of events; every guest has become a photographer. If you want guests to take pictures of your wedding and display them on social media, it can be hard to keep up with who has taken what. Ask guests to #hashtag your wedding with your very own tag, so you can simply search afterwards and see your special day through their eyes.
