Wedding signage is so helpful on the wedding day to advise guests of any important information, of where they’ll be sitting for the wedding breakfast, and is a great opportunity to show some personality with a consistent colour palette across your wedding signage and stationery. So which are the essential 5 signs to include for your wedding day?
1. Wedding Welcome Sign
It all starts with a wedding welcome sign, a gorgeous way to welcome your guests as they arrive and can be styled to give guests an idea of what to expect from your big day. Clare and Joe had a burgundy rustic style with guests arriving to a welcome sign designed with white calligraphy on a watercolour burgundy background, accessorised with rustic wooden barrels and crates and their stunning wedding flowers.

2. Order Of The Day Signage
Order of the day signage is a must have because it gives your guests a timeline of what to expect on the wedding day and provides another styling opportunity to be consistent with the rest of the signage and stationery on your big day too!
Some couples choose to have their wedding welcome sign combined with the order of the day timings. This one is inspired by the Amelia stationery collection with a watercolour foliage design.

All on the day signage can be consistent with the colour scheme and style of your wedding stationery. Aimee and Joel decided on angled signage to match their angled on the day stationery. Read more about their warm autumnal boho wedding day here.
3. Table Plan Signage
Table plans are the next essential sign to have at your wedding day to advise guests where they are sitting and with who! They are also another fab way to get creative because they can be displayed in so many different ways. Even with a large guest list all the names can still be listed beautifully!
Table plans can be created on different backgrounds such as this frosted Perspex with gold calligraphy I designed for Emily and Alex, which co-ordinated with the frosted Perspex used throughout their wedding. Have a browse of their wedding day here.
Signage printed on fabric is lovely because it gives a bit of movement and is ideal for destination weddings because you can roll it up and put into your suitcase.

4. Large Wedding Signage
You can be as creative as you like on your big day and use signage for quotes, lyrics or a photo opportunity! If you have a large venue it’s a good way to help style the space you have available.
5. Small Wedding Signage
Finally, small signs are essential for wherever you want to direct guests to do something specific such as put their wedding cards and gifts somewhere, or for bar signs if there’s any specific drinks you’ve selected and of course the all important detail of the flavour of the wedding cake…
It’s definitely worth pointing out details including the guestbook, so guests don’t forget to sign!
This drinks menu looks so pretty on handmade paper with hand torn deckle edges and a touch of calligraphy, which co-ordinated with the couples stationery which was all created on handmade paper with hand torn deckled edges from the Olive stationery collection.
