Everywhere a Sign | Lancaster, York Wedding Ideas


As I've been planning this blog post, I've been singing the song "Signs, signs--everywhere a sign..." and I cannot get it out of my head.  Maybe you'll be singing along by the end of this post, too.

Do you want to know what is crazy popular right now?  Typography.

People are very drawn to letters, fonts, and writing.   Along with typography come the trend of unique signs. There are so many creative sayings and possibilities for the use of signs on your special day.  Signs are a way to personalize your wedding, reception or event.  Here are some ideas for you to consider as you plan your special day.


Think about how to creatively use signs in your photographs.  You may want to plan for your photographer to grab a photo of you holding a "thank you" sign, for example, to use as the image on your custom thank you cards to your guests.

Think outside of the box.  The couple above loved board games, so they made scrabble tiles to create a sign for a very special photo.  Signs add whimsy, personality and the ability to communicate a special message--and photography helps make that message last forever!


What about adding some serious cuteness factor to the way you use a sign at your event?  Kids carrying signs will have your guests literally saying "awww!!!" and even, perhaps, add a giggle before your big entrance down the aisle.  If you've got a well-behaved pooch who will perform well on your big day, put him/her to work!  Fido will be proud to announce the coming bride.


The reception is a wonderful place to use signs.  Consider putting the menu on a beautiful chalkboard. Signs can also add a lot to food table, too.

It's a special thing to create a sign that shares your love story!  Put that on display at the reception, because people can't get enough a great love story--especially at a wedding.

And, if you have children coming to the wedding and you've made them special bags--how adorable is the "I came for cake!" sign?  (See our recent post on how to make your wedding a kid-friendly event!)


I, personally, love this!  First, these Italian-style chiavari chairs are both classic and extremely popular right now.  They also happen to the chairs we have at Perfect Settings.  A few months ago, I did a post about dressing up your chairs at your wedding.  It's always a great idea to indicate the special seats of the bride and groom.  Let's get creative about the signs we use!


You definitely want to consider the fact that typography and signs could be the background for beauty.  Whether they are at the front of your wedding service, a stopping point for great pictures on the way to the reception or behind the bridal party at the reception, signs add interest and personality!


Creative directional signs are also simple and distinct.  They can be rustic or classic.  They can point to anything from where to find the photo booth and dancing to important things like restrooms!  This is just one more way to bring all of your personal charm into the setting.

So, now do you understand why I've been singing about signs?  But, trust me, you don't want to hire me to sing for you!  What you do want to consider is asking me to help you make your dreams become a reality on your special day.

Contact me and we can plan a time to discuss your wedding or party planning.  Working with a coordinator makes your day much easier, more affordable and less stressful.  And, the fact that you're reading this blog post MIGHT just be a SIGN that we'd make a perfect team!
