10 Signage Inspirations for Your Wedding

Take your pick from classic to modern signs found on Instagram.


1. Have both your initials carved over an arrow pointing to your wedding venue. The white paint gives it a more immaculate feel.

It’s been a rather dreary day round these parts. And as much as we all wish for sunshine and blue skies on a wedding day, we know it’s not always a certainty! These couple’s initials wedding arrows have a lacquer coating on them, so they’ll be totally fine for brief outdoor use – even on days like today ☔️

2. Introduce your guestbook signage with old school props like a vintage typewriter.

Sometimes, more is just more. (The plumes! The leather! Ahh!)⠀ ⠀ Venue: @wolfrockestate | Photo: @samanthalaurenphotographie | Planning: @charmedaffair | Rentals: @hvvintagerentals | Florals: @floralfantasiesbysara

3. If you’re holding your ceremony and reception party in one big outdoor location, go for a rustic signage which can lead the way to the different areas.

4. Ask an adorable nephew, godson, or even your own son to walk down the aisle before the bride with this flag inscription.

5. A lovely way to show your guests where they’ll be seated is through a chalkboard signage that matches the event’s blooms. In case you didn’t know, you can use the black side of an illustration board as a cheap alternative to a chalkboard.

I absolutely adored making this seating plan with matching table names and signage too. Beautiful and personal theme throughout xx #Weddingplanning #2017wedding #2018wedding #bespoke #weddingsignage #handmade #smallbusiness #madeinnorfolk #norfolkwedding #buyhandmade #lovehandmade #shopsmall #supportlocal #chalkboard #musicals #tableplan

6. Let your selfie-taking and trigger happy guests share their photos with you by including your official wedding hashtag. This one created with white and gold graphics over a black background looks absolutely stunning!

If you SHOOT It SHARE it 🙂 Also if you like some of what we’re doing then SHARE it but don’t SHOOT it 😂

7. Adorn your signage with a set of fresh blooms and prop it over a wooden stand to make it stand out. The mix of handwritten script and print texts also makes the sign appear contemporary.

I am looking forward to taking more photos with @paperdarlingnz this weekend I think signs look so awesome at weddings!

8. Who says you can’t decorate a vintage mirror for your wedding sign? All you need is a special marker and some help from a hand letterer to write all the essential information.

Love this shot of Leigh + JJ’s wedding signage last December! We will be revamping our wedding section on our website soon, stay tuned! #escopaperwedding #finaleighjohnson ✨🥂✨

9. Give your sign a (literal) twist by including intertwined cords to complement your favorite Bible passage. Plus, you can bring home the special sign after the wedding and place it in your altar.

10. Introduce your specially made cocktails through snazzy handwritten signs in standout frames. You can even make your guests vote for which drink they like best by leaving a scoreboard on both sides!
