Using signs at your wedding is a good way to let guests know what to expect during your ceremony or reception and will take the guesswork out of where to go and what to do. Guests will surely appreciate being given directions or told what will happen next.
A clear set of instructions or even a witty or inspirational saying can add character to your celebration. Make sure your signs adhere to your theme, though. Keep the following in mind when preparing and displaying your signs:
Will it be a rustic, garden wedding? Then wooden, handpainted signs will look just right. Or will it be a formal affair? Then perhaps consider framed signs done in calligraphy.
Will it be an indoor or outdoor celebration? Signs placed outdoors should be able to withstand the elements, meaning it shouldn't fall apart should it get wet nor get blown away by a sudden gust of wind. When displaying signs indoors, make sure they are well lit.
Make sure your signs serve their purpose. Their purpose will dictate the placement. A menu sign, obviously, will have to be set up right next to the buffet table. Directional signages should be placed en route to the venue. Make sure your signs are placed in an area that's visible to all and not obstructed by foliage or other materials. Finally, secure your signs so that they don't fall and break or even hurt someone.
