I often try to visualise what the wedding venue will be like before I arrive. I do love capturing the signage and table settings to share on my Instagram account a few days later. Never on the day, as I think this is indeed disrespectful to couple and their wedding
One of the increasing trends at weddings is to have signage on everything.
Why put wedding signs everywhere?
Simply it is so that your guests are kept in the picture, yes they know what is happening and what is expected of them.
They can be used as friendly reminders for those guests who might not know what is expected of a guest at weddings today. The signs take on many formats – from the informative to the very decorative and some are conversational. More and more they are unqiue and I think that is because there is so many ideas you can google and of course Pinterest has lots of ideas to get you thinking.
The key to great signage is to ensure that they are consistent and can be read clearly. No point in having a sign if it can’t be read and understood.
Get the signage right and you will have complemented your wedding and the style you have chosen.
As I mentioned Pinterest is where you will find inspiration for signage and I am not sure if I can use those photos in my blog. I remember reading somewhere you have to be able to give credit to the photographer and that is very hard when you take things off Pinterest. So to overcome that I have pulled out a few from my Instagram account to support the ravings of this Celebrant. They are not the best photos and perhaps I should have asked my photography friends and there are many to give me photos.
Yes I like signage and I often comment over something new and different that I see.
Blackboards, pallets, specially made rustic chalkboards that are DIY options and many more.
There will always be new ideas at weddings as Pinterest is alive and well.
Congratulations to all the couples who think to assist their guests with signage.
PS: Mirrors, as much as they look great, I challenge you, are they easy to read?
