Welcome Wedding Signs Can Fit Every Reception Theme

We tend to associate welcome wedding signs with a rustic, outdoorsy celebration. But nothing could be further from the truth. Signs can be adapted to any reception theme as they should match your aesthetic. For example, DIY your own classic and timeless sign by monogramming your initials on a chalkboard. Place it on an easel for all to see. Getting married at the beach? Write a warm message on some driftwood to give your sign that nautical vibe. There is much to choose from at boho weddings. Adorn your wedding signs with brightly colored flowers. Or use fragrant eucalyptus garlands to encircle your signs. If you are hosting an urban wedding, mount signs with stylized graphics and mixed typography to give them that modern city touch.

Wedding Signs Have a Myriad of Uses

Besides greeting your guests, welcome wedding signs provide both a way to showcase your personality and a service to your guests. Many couples use them as a wedding program and inform them about the order of events. Some use them to help direct their guests to the different areas or as a map. Others to ask guests to sign their book or to grab a favor. Couples can also share their Instagram hashtag or their Snap filter with the guests and encourage their photo sharing.

Regardless of your style, give your guests a warm and fuzzy feeling upon arrival with your very own reception sign!

  1. Choose your fonts and your text.
  2. Print your text on a printer. Tip: if your sign is larger than life, print one line at a time.
  3. Now place transfer or graphite paper over the chalkboard and secure it with artist tape – it doesn’t leave traces of glue.
  4. Place the paper with the printed text over it and secure with artist tape again.
  5. Transfer with a retractable pen and remove both the paper and the graphite paper.
  6. Finally, trace the letters with white gel pen so they look like chalk. Voilá!
