There are a lot of details involved in planning a wedding. You’ve got to worry about clothes, venues, menus, flowers, chairs, linens, vows, organizing attendants, music, favors, decorations… the list goes on and on.
But have you considered signage?
After all, you have people coming from far away who don’t know where your reception hall is, and it can be hard to pull over and consult the little map that came with the invitation when you’re not sure whether you’ve made a wrong turn or not. A few pretty pointers with balloons and/or crepe paper ribbons in your wedding colors will help people know they’re going the right way. Of course it never hurts to have your names and the date on there, too, in case someone else is getting married around the same spot or one of the signs is missed when the clean up crew goes to take them down again.

Once you get to the wedding itself, there are still good reasons for signage.

It’s easy to get turned around on an unfamiliar site and lose track of where the facilities you need might be.
If you have some help yourself item, it’s always a good idea to put out a sign so people know they really are supposed to simply help themselves to candy or favor boxes. And if you’re having a buffet meal at your reception, it never hurts to put signs explaining what each dish is and pointing out any common allergens (or hidden animal products) involved. After all, you don’t want your peanut-allergic auntie to grab a big helping of pad thai without knowing to have her epipen at the ready!

Or you could just have a message for your entire guest list that would be fun to share as decor.
Oh, and don’t forget the sign that shares your good news with everyone who passes you on the road afterward!

Remember, weddings are more fun when everyone can find them… and what’s going on when they get there.
