Let’s dive into the most popular wedding signs I create for my couples so you can add these to your planning list now (and if you don’t think about these until the last minute, that’s fine too…we can still get them in the mix of your wedding day items).
Wedding Day Signs you Need for your Wedding Day
For a hosted bar, let your guests know what is hosted and the brands of alcohol or soda available. If you are doing a cash bar, let your guests know what is available and the costs.
There are many great ways to honor lost loved ones on your wedding day. Consider a sign or multiple signs honoring these loved ones with their names or just a general statement of memory.
If you have a variety of cake flavors available at your cake table, let your guests know the flavors so they can dive into their favorites!
If you’re doing a wedding hashtag, let people know what it is and how to use it! Tell them your hashtag and what social media you suggest using it on.
A fun trend right now is creating signature drinks for your wedding reception. These drinks can be your favorites that you want to share with your guests.
You don’t want your aunt’s ipad in the background of you walking down the aisle because she wants to get a photo of you. Let your guests know to truly just enjoy the wedding and shut off/put down their cameras/phones. This allows your photographer to do their job.
I love creating these fun timeline signs. It tells your guests what is going on at your reception and what they can expect that night. My type A personality thinks this sign is a must!
Consider a nice welcome sign as your guests come into the church or reception. Your guests will know for sure if they’re in the right spot.
If you’re having a guest book, remind guests to sign it! If you’re doing doing a book but something else unique, it’s good to have a sign to tell your guests what they need to do.
Are you reserving a few tables for family at your reception? Then let’s create a couple of “reserved” signs so no other guests take these spots.
A fun details is to provide your guests toiletries in the restroom at your reception. Think mints, gum, small perfume, etc so they can freshen up in the bathroom. A fun sign can point out this fun surprise.
