Ways of Using Wedding Signs on Your Special Day

Wedding signs can play many roles. Obviously they can direct your guests which way to go using arrows. They can inform guests about the seating plan. They can give instructions about what not to do. Wedding signs are also a great way to help continue your theme at different locations. Use the same font, same colours and same type of sign for continuity. You may want to use a wedding sign to:

  • Display the day’s timetable.
  • Ask guests to turn their phones off during your ceremony.
  • Display the bride and groom’s names.
  • Reserve seating.
  • Instruct guests what to do as you walk down the aisle.
  • Share the hashtag for guests to post photos on social media.
  • Display your menu.
  • Ask guests to fill in your guest book.
