You may have noticed that wedding signage is bigger than ever (literally). Brides and grooms are balancing large placards on easels, hanging up enormous chalkboards and otherwise positioning unmissable signage throughout their ceremony and reception areas. These boards are often practical, spelling out seating arrangements or pointing guests to the gift table, for example. But often they simply exclaim over the couple’s new status (see below), offer an inspiring quote or extend thanks. These signs are often decorated with flowers and greens that tie them to the rest of the wedding decor. The look is modern, fresh and seriously informative. See 3 ways to spruce up your signage below.
When you’ve emblazoned your new status on a stack of gorgeous wood large enough to create an entire panel, you need flowers that stack up, too. Here a design of greenery, roses and hydrangea nestles over the sign, bringing a soft, fresh feel to the backdrop of wood. This helps the signage both blend into the outdoor setting and connect to the flowers used in the ceremony.
Silver dollar eucalyptus clusters around a copper sign painted to read “wedding ceremony” in white, whimsical script. The contrast here between the rustic brown of the sign and the light, silvery green of the shaggy eucalyptus makes for an arresting visual. The sign’s patina and the fact that it is nearly receding into green makes it feel like it’s been there forever.
Of course hoops are rolling into sign territory–they’r everywhere! A creative, artistic bride and groom might create a backdrop or other centerpiece wall that includes signage, hoops, lights, frames and other decor pieces personal to them. We love how little flower vignettes hang from the hoops here, some of which enclose words that are meaningful to the couple and the event at hand. Don’t forget to festoon your ceremony and reception signs with flowers. They’re like a fresh exclamation point.
