When planning your wedding décor, one of the elements we often see being overlooked is the wedding signage, however the signage is actually one of the first elements your guests see on arrival. While it may seem like a small detail, signage plays a key role in the flow of your wedding. From welcoming guests to explaining where to sign the guestbook, to where to find their seat, signs can be used for almost everything. So before you start labelling the wine glasses, check out our 7 must have signs to get that inspiration flowing
The welcome sign does exactly what they say, they welcome your guests to your celebration. These signs let your guests know they are in the right place and where they are supposed to be. If you don’t have a wedding planner, or staff member available to greet them, this is a perfect way to ensure they know they are in the right spot. Welcome signs typically include the couples name, wedding date and venue or location.
Guest books serve as a wonderful memento to look back on over the years as well as to share with friends and family that were unable to attend in person. It is important for all our guests so sign it, so its location needs to be clear. You can also direct your guests on what kind of message you would like for them to leave you: i.e. write your favourite memory of us as a couple.
Ceremony Running Order:
You and your planner may know the timeline of the day back to front, but remember your guests have no idea of what is in store for them. Let your guests know the flow of the day, and include details like your favourite poems, quotes and more.
If you are having your wedding in a large or outdoor space, you might want to consider giving your guests directions. This is very important if your ceremony and reception are taking place in different locations.
Remember to let your guests know if you have an open or cash bar. Are you only serving wine and beer? Do you have a signature cocktail on offer? If so, let your guests know the name as well as the ingredients here.
This is an extremely important element for your day and needs to be clearly visible for your guests to view. Make sure to list what table your guests will be sitting at.
These are our favourite elements and can really bring a theme to life. On the table, think about including a menu, a place card and a thank you note. There are many ways you can combine these into one card or you can have 3 different pieces. The world is really your oyster here.
