If you’re planning your wedding and feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the decisions to be made then I hope this blog post will give you some guidance on wedding signage.
Where are you displaying the signage?
First up consider the space available at your chosen wedding venue. If there is a wedding team or specialist available, ask for their advice on where they recommend placing any signage. Alternatively have a tour of the venue and look at where the signage would be best suited.
The size of the space is important too. I usually create welcome signs and table plans in an A1 size. A small sign won’t look right in a large open space, but an A1 size placed on a stand or easel would work well.
How will you display the signage?
Ask your venue if they have any easels or stands which you could hire for the big day. A barn venue might have a rustic wooden style easel which then fits with your overall styling of the venue or a metal stand might be more appropriate for your venue. Consider the different materials available and how the styling will all come together for the day. This welcome and order of the day sign is printed on fabric for a boho look.
What colour signage are you going for?
On the day stationery such as table place names or numbers, wedding menus and the signage can all co-ordinate to provide a cohesive styling look on the wedding day. When it matches or blends with your wedding invitations it provides a lovely photo opportunity too!
You could choose a very specific colour palette such as monochrome as shown here.
Or using different tones of blue throughout wedding signage and on the stationery such as this gorgeous table plan from an autumnal blue hues wedding.
Burgundy looks gorgeous for an autumn or winter wedding. The table plan here was created as part of a rustic barn wedding with a burgundy colour palette throughout.

Perspex is a gorgeous option for signage too and compliments any colour scheme.
Which wedding signs do I need?
I recommend a welcome sign, order of the day sign, table plan sign as the essential signage you need for your big day. Then budget dependant large and small signage can be created to match the wedding colour palette for any details you would like guests to pay attention to, such as the guestbook, any quotes or bar drinks.
Some couples chose to have lyrics or a quote created as bespoke signage too.
All signage can be created to match your existing wedding stationery.
