Best Wedding Signs: 31 Wedding Signs You Will Love

Wedding signs are some of the prettiest personalised items for your wedding day, and we’ve rounded up some of the best wedding signs to complete your decor. They’re perfect for every aspect of your wedding, from planning and your hen party to your ceremony, reception, and beyond.

31 of the Best Wedding Signs for Your Wedding Journey

“Days Until ‘I Do'” Wedding Signs

This stylish “Days Until ‘I Do'” sign is one of the best wedding signs for the countdown to your big day, and it’s a must-have for couples who love to keep track of exactly how many days are left. Simply draw on the chalkboard heart (with a liquid chalk pen) and wipe it away when you want to change it. This is especially great if you’re making a scrapbook or have a wedding planning book, or if you simply want to post something on your social media—snap a photo of your countdown sign and share away!

“Welcome to the Wedding” Signs

A classic wedding sign is one placed at the front of/outside of your venue that welcomes your guests to the wedding. Not only is it a nice gesture, but it also offers a great opportunity to give a taste of your wedding theme or colour scheme. For example, we love this maidenhair fern and greenery inspired welcome poster paired with a charming rustic, self standing chalkboard sign. Other posters to go with this frame  include our “Garden Party” poster and “Chalkboard Print” poster, or you could simply use the chalkboard sign on its own and personalise it by hand with chalk.

For a bit of a bigger sign, we also love this large welcome sign elevated on a wooden easel and finished off with stunning ivory-and-pink roses.

Directional Wedding Signs

If your venue is quite large or maze-like, directional signs are essential unless you can have someone who will stand and direct everyone to where they need to go. These directional signs can be large, directing guests to everything from the wedding ceremony room and reception room (provided these are held at the same venue) to restrooms, a quiet corner, or the area where photos will be taken.

Alternatively, some of the best wedding signs are the small and pretty ones that can often be found directing people around the wedding reception to the bar, dance floor, buffet, photo booth, etc. These wooden arrow signs are particularly lovely, and we also love the versatility of wedding chalkboard signs.

Timeline Wedding Signs

Another wonderful wedding sign idea is to create a wedding day timeline. We especially love this idea—using a simple wooden pallet standing upright.

“Choose a Seat, Not a Side” Wedding Signs

These are very popular wedding signs as they encourage mingling between the two families. They work best when set up in full view of guests arriving at your ceremony, such as on an easel, but they come in a vast array of styles, shapes and sizes.

Social Media Wedding Signs

Some couples like to encourage their guests to take photos during the wedding as it pretty much guarantees a lot more for their album. In order to keep track of these, many couples connect their guests to either an online photo sharing site where photos can be uploaded, and/or they come up with a unique hashtag for use across social media. To make this clear to guests there are many signs available—even tent cards  like the below “Beautiful Botanics” Instagram tent card can be re-purposed so that, instead of sitting neatly on a table, they are suspended from a frame in fuller view. In fact, some guests may be unsure if you’re allowing social media or not so an Instagram hashtag sign is an easy way to make your wishes known.

“Unplugged” Wedding Signs

Alternatively, some couples choose to have an “unplugged wedding” where they ask that no devices are used. If this sounds like something you’d like, here’s how to have an unplugged wedding.

Flower Girl or Page Boy Wedding Signs

You often see traditional page boys walking the aisle with a “Here Comes the Bride” banner, but we also love this contemporary alternative: a personalised, greenery inspired “Just Wait Until You See Her” sign.

Wedding Backdrops

One of the biggest, best wedding signs you can get is a stunning personalised canvas or paper backdrop like this “Greenery” backdrop, shown here on a rose gold frame with an assortment of ferns and palm leaves. It’s fantastic as either a wedding ceremony backdrop, a backdrop for behind the top table at the wedding reception, a photo booth backdrop, or even just a pretty decoration somewhere in the room.

Wishing Well Wedding Signs

A lovely tradition in most weddings is asking your guests to leave a wish or happy thought for the couple, either in a wishing well or guest book. To make sure your guests know where they should put these, consider a wishing well sign such as this pretty black board from Gemma and Richard’s rustic barn real wedding and this modern wire basket with a “Vintage Romance” wishing well sign.

Wedding Table Plans

Classic wedding table plans and seating charts are usually large signs at the wedding reception that show your guests where you’d like them to sit. But there are some gorgeous alternatives too, like this “Be Our Guest” mirror-with-gilded frame which is great for a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding. This mirror is completed to perfection with calligraphed glass from Flourish & Lace.

Chair Backs Wedding Signs

Chair backs may seem a small detail, but they can be very effective. Just look how pretty these vintage blue, “Vintage Romance” chair signs are when finished off with some beautiful flowers, and don’t miss our gorgeous roses, pearls and lace chair backs DIY for even more inspiration.

Cocktail Bar Wedding Signs

Acrylic wedding signs are minimalist and stylish, and we think they look especially good as part of a cocktail bar.

Food Bar Wedding Signs

If you’re having a buffet or other casual wedding meal such as a barbecue or hot-meals van, one of the best wedding signs is one that points out where it is in your venue. And if you have a variety of food tables such as a main meal table, dessert table and a cake table, etc, you might want more than one. (For some great wedding reception food inspiration, don’t miss our pick of unusual wedding catering ideas).

Decorative Wedding Signs

We love these flowers-and-lights-filled letters, as not only would they look beautiful at your wedding but they’ll also make a lovely keepsake afterwards when displayed around your home.

Photo Booth Props

Signs don’t have to be purely practical—they can be fun too, such as those found in an assortment of photo booth props.
