We use them everyday and hardly think about them at all. But at weddings, a well-crafted sign can not only provide necessary information about the day/couple but, also evoke incredible emotion from your guests.
Signs are an example of the 'ooh, ahhhs, and oh-yeah's' that help move a wedding from good to great. So, we've gathered our favorite ideas on how to use signage (whether witty or sweet) on your big day.
Much like other events (think graduations, parties, concerts) finding your way around --or even to-- a wedding can be an unnecessary stress for guests. Use signs leading up to and inside of your venue to help keep guests on the right track.
You can also use signage to preview your day and/or your bridal party with your guests.
In the ceremony space signs can help set the tone for your day. Let everyone know what a great day you've got planned.
3. Reception Programming: Schedule + Seating
Even if guests aren't assigned seats, everyone will need one to eat.
4. Decor: The Bar/Cocktail Hour, Reception and/or Ceremony Space
Signs don't have to be limited to directions or logistics. Consider using signs to jazz up your reception space. Decorate the bar with signs or share your wedding hashtags!
Take this time to send your guest off with a gift, a thank you, or even a prayer for safe travels.
Signs, like weddings, can come big or small, the most important thing to remember is what goes on it should be your call! Use humor or hymns, the choice is all yours. And if you're in the market for a calligrapher may we (kindly but, also seriously) suggest Stephanie over at Ellie + Ace. She's a member of The Coterie family and does amazing work!
