If you want to ensure a smooth wedding ceremony and reception, it’s important to make sure the layout and logistical flow are both crystal clear to your guests. Where should they go? Where should they sit? These are questions you can answer easily by employing the right kind of signage.
The signs you make for your wedding can come in pretty much any style you like; we’ll leave that decision to you. For now, we want to highlight three basics types of signage that you’ll want to consider for your big day.
Sweetheart Table Signage
This is a trend we love: At the wedding reception, a small table is set up just for the bride and groom, with two chairs facing each other and allowing the happy couple to receive well wishes and congratulations from all the guests. We recommend you identify this table with a sign; there are plenty of ways to do so:
- Mr. & Mrs.
- Bride & Groom
- His & Hers
- Come say hi to the happy couple!
- For the newlyweds
You can use your imagination to think of variations, of course—but these are the most common ways of labeling the sweetheart table.
On a more practical level, you may or may not need signage for the ceremony, reception area, and bar—just depending on the size and layout of your venue.
Some options to consider include:
- For the ceremony:
- Tie the knot
- The big day is here!
- I Do’s this way!
- For the reception:
- Party over here!
- Dancing and drinks
- For the bar:
- Time to Toast!
- Raise a Glass!
Again, you can brainstorm variants of your own!
Signs for Seating
Finally, you may wish to consider signs for seating—that is, unless you have opted for an open seating arrangement. So, you may have a sign showing that friends of the bride go on one side, friends of the room on the other—but you can also have a sign telling people that you’re all one big happy family, that there’s no need to pick a side, that they can sit wherever they want, etc.
