Wedding signage is a must-have at any wedding. Couples can express their love for each other and for their guests in many ways with signs – and the best part is, wedding signs are multi-purpose! They can direct guests around the ceremony/reception, serve as wedding decorations, photo props and make cute post-wedding keepsakes or decor.

Your signage can be fun, festive, personal or trendy – and you can never have too many signs. We found some wedding sign ideas, including inspiration for how to create your sign as well as ideas for the message to display, that will have you smiling and inspired!

Handwritten wedding signs are charming and make an easy project. Your guests don’t have to know who wrote the sign so if you aren’t so good at the calligraphy thing, no sweat; you can still achieve this sweet look on your wedding signage using a professional or a really talented friend. Although, with handwritten signs, we think imperfection equals character! For a professional touch, check out these wedding calligraphy tips and ideas.

We love chalkboard wedding signs which are a popular trend these days. Couples like to display their reception menu with chalk or even use the chalkboard to announce the schedule of the wedding. This sign lets guest know there is no assigned seating, a wedding tradition we would skip, too!

Don’t have a big message to display at your wedding? No problem; create a sign that’s especially for you (perhaps with your name and wedding date on it) and one you’d like to have after the wedding. If you like the chalkboard idea, check out this cool DIY chalkboard sign! Don’t want to make one yourself? Check out this inexpensive handmade chalkboard sign from MelindaWeddingDesign on Etsy.

Vintage wedding signs can be displayed at your wedding to add character and rustic charm. This mirror wedding sign (how creative!) adds a vintage touch to the wedding. Point out where the candy buffet is or where guests can find the photo booth. Wood is an inexpensive option and easy to use to create a sign with country charm. Choose the perfect rustic or old-fashion frame to put over your sign or find a nice easel to prop your sign on for instant character at any wedding.

Display song lyrics or a bible verse at your wedding on the sign of your choice. Or use a thank-you sign to tell your guests how much you appreciate them in a photo. One of our favorite ideas is this sign which tells guests the love story of the couple (it’s DIY!) Need help with those thank-you notes, too?
