Tips for Alternative Wedding Welcome Signs
First impressions matter – even at a wedding! For many guests, the first thing they’ll see is your wedding welcome sign. Sure, it could be a plain “Welcome to our wedding” sign, but why not be a bit creative? The right welcome sign can get your guests in the right mood from the very beginning while telling them that this wedding is going to be something special!
Here are some of our favorites that we’ve either made for customers or seen at weddings we’ve worked.
Five Alternative Ideas for Clever Wedding Welcome Signs
- Foamcore designs
Foamcore is a great material to work with because it can be carved to look like almost anything while having a fun and playful look. You could go with a basic arrow, or you could get really creative. Do you have a theme for your wedding? Get a foamcore sign that matches that theme.
- “Wedding Crashers Welcome!”
We got a good laugh when we saw this one, as did most of the guests walking by. Just keep in mind, there’s always the chance that actual crashers will take it literally. Then again, if you’re of a bohemian mind, that could just add to the fun!
We’ve seen a couple of great welcome signs designed after signposts. One had a very traditional “white wooden arrows” look, while another was deliberately rustic and probably was made from found wood. They welcomed guests to the ceremony, while also pointing the way to the most important attractions. The extra effort was appreciated!
- “Can we get a witness?”
This was another cute one we made for a couple with an odd sense of humor, and it got a few giggles as the guests passed by. It used a “jailhouse bars” look, referencing the old Public Enemy track.
- Framed glass
One surprisingly eye-catching wedding welcome sign we came across used a piece of framed glass (well, probably plastic) which was positioned to “frame” the reception when you looked through it. Then the welcome message is written over top in white marker. The result was perfect for taking pictures, inviting guests to get creative before they’d even properly arrived!
