Ask any wedding planner and they will say no, but wedding decor is of course optional. But you’ll be hard pressed to find any big day without beautiful florals, installations and personal details. The job of wedding decor is to transform your big day into your dream vision and theme, but some pretty things actually serve an important purpose, and those are wedding signs! The use of wedding signs has grown immensely in the last several years, and they’re pretty much a must these days, but it not only helps your guests find their seats, they let your guests know what hashtag to use for all their fun pictures, and if you’re having a day long affair on a vineyard or garden, it allows them to know where everything is from the ceremony, to the nighttime fire pit and s’mores.
Wedding signs don’t need to be expensive, they can be something as simple as a vintage frame or wood palette with beautiful calligraphy. In 2017 we’ll be seeing less DIY chalkboard signs, and more modern simple signage that keeps in line with the whole look of your wedding, matching the same fonts and even colors to your invitations. So today I’ve gathered together some of the most creative, modern, unique and beautifully calligraphed Wedding Signs You Need on your big day, I guarantee you’ll find a sign that fits your needs & style…

Sharing All Those Fun Moments…
Oh snap! Have your friends and loved ones assist in capturing your day by using a wedding hashtag and sign to promote it. Have multiple signs as reminders to use your hashtag as they post to social media through out the day. It’s also a good one to remind guests if you’re have a social media-less ceremony too!
