7 Signage Styles for the Best First Impression

Wedding Welcome Signs that are Trending Right Now

There’s no better way to make the best first impression on your special day than with wedding welcome signs that reflect your signature style. Couples love to use these pieces to add unique decor, shoutout the bridal party, direct guests towards seating arrangements or list the order of events for the big day. Place them at entranceways for your ceremony, reception or both.

The best thing about wedding welcome signs is that the options are endless! These pieces can be customized to your liking with your favorite font, custom monograms and any design element that your heart desires. Here are some of our favorite styles that are sure to wow your guests:

Rustic Wooden Signs 

Wooden wedding signs are inspired by nature which makes them ideal for an outdoor ceremony. If you’re having a southern or countryside themed wedding, this is THE sign to put in your entranceways. Wood adds a rustic touch and can pair well with so many colors and other decorations. We especially love the hand-lettered calligraphy and the addition of the greenery on the sign below. 

Modern Painted Glass

Beautiful calligraphy on see-through glass is a trend that we are seeing a lot of — and for good reason! These signs are super sleek. The minimalism doesn’t distract from other gorgeous details of your wedding. You can use this modern sign for practically any function since you can write anything you’d like on it. This same trend can be achieved with acrylic instead of glass (and it will be a lot easier to transport).

Elegant Mirrors 

Calligraphy can also be painted on mirrors to create an elegant look. Especially with an ornate frame, this style is very fairy-tale like. The mirrors will reflect the colors of the rest of your decor so you don’t even have to worry about coordination. Petal & Oak’s Ella Mirror is a perfect example of this trend.

Light up the Night with Neon

Trend alert!!! Neon signage is huge for weddings right now. Beautiful lettering can be taken to the next level with personalized neon signs as a statement decoration. These signs are super engaging and eye-catching. Light up the night with a neon sign and your guests will amazed.

Retro Marquee Signs

We are loving the retro vibe of metal light-up marquee letters! Use these to spell out shorter words (such as LOVE, MR & MRS and BAR) or to display your initials. You can create your very own custom marquee sign with Get Lit Event Lighting. Since these signs are best used to spell out short words, we recommend pairing these with another type of welcome sign if you’re looking to communicate more information to your guests. 

Perfect Minimalism with Paper

For another modern minimalist style, go with paper. Keeping it simple with a paper sign creates a chic look. Check out Mason Dixon Design’s welcome sign gallery for even more inspiration for paper signs. This company will create gorgeous signs whether the copy is hand-lettered or printed. You can also elevate the look of a paper sign by pairing it with a bouquet.

Charming Chalkboards

Another customizable sign that couples are loving right now is chalkboards. Chalkboards add a touch of rustic charm especially when decorative calligraphy is drawn on them. Check out ThemeWorks to find the perfect chalkboard sign to make your wedding vision come to life!
