Signage is the "unsung hero" of weddings. It greets guests before you do. It provides the timeline for the day and gives guests directions on where to leave gifts or sign youor guestbook. Signage even tells your guests where to sit to enjoy dinner. Yet, many times signage gets overlooked. To keep you from making that mistake, here are 5 trending custom signage pieces you will want to have for your wedding:
5. Table Numbers. While table numbers may seem obvious for signage, custom table numbers are not. However, brides are flocking back to hand-lettered table numbers. Adding table numbers to your signage order upfront is the best way to ensure these small details aren't left to the last minute.
4. Gifts and Cards. Of course the presence of your guests is the biggest gift. However, when your guests bring you gifts, you'll want them to know where to put them prior to the ceremony. Set your gifts and cards table up near your welcome signage.
3. "In Memoriam". If the past couple of years have taught us anything, it's that life is extremely precious. Add this sentimental station to your wedding to pay respects to loved ones whose memory will live on forever.
2. Quotes or Scriptures. Whether it's the bride and groom being represented by their own individual quotes or a scripture to represent your new union, this signage is a great way to build a more intimate connection with your guests.
1. Place Card Seating Charts. Place card seating charts are quickly becoming a favorite due to their versatility and practicality. These place cards, affixed to either a mirror or acrylic not only tell your guests where they are seated, but they can also double as meal indicators , if needed.
As you can see, signage is such an important design element. Particularly because, beautifully lettered custom signage is not just about what you want to say, but how you want to say it.
