You guys! This is my bread and butter. Wedding Day signage is my favorite kind of signage. Your wedding day stationary goes beyond the invitation suite and envelope addressing! Wedding day signage includes everything from a Welcome Sign to a Seating Chart or Place Cards, Drink Menus, Hashtag Signs, Table Numbers and the list goes on. Couples get to put their own spin on just about everything these days! So let's break down some of these wedding day sign details, what they are - and most importantly, why you need them!
Seating Chart / Place Cards
Your guests need to know where to go to be seated. The sky is the limit here. If you can imagine it, it can be created. Your guests need to know where they are sitting, right? You have several options, including creating a large seating chart that will lead them to a table. They can either pick a seat, or you can have place cards at each sitting. OR, you an have a table with a slew of escort cards that include name/s and a table number. And how you do this can uniquely tie into the theme of your wedding. One bride used her grandmothers old tile floor pieces as escort cards. I designed a large acrylic seating chart to lead each couple to their table.
Beach wedding? Try agate stones or sea glass! Are you having a spring wedding full of magnolias? Yes, I can letter on magnolia leaves. And every color paper and ink. I love the way gold shimmers on marble tiles or black acrylic!
Say hello and welcome your guests to this special day. This is a great way to let your guests know they have made it to the right party! Perhaps the ceremony and reception are at the same building, but different areas so you have to guide your guests to the respective places. Or perhaps you are having an "unplugged" ceremony and want to greet you guests and gently pass along the message? As you can see, a welcome sign can be basic or more involved but should include the bride and groom names and their wedding date. Curious how to overcome the clear acrylic situation? We can paint the back to match your color scheme!
Bar/Drink Menu's + Hashtags
How many weddings have you been to recently where the couple has their own hashtags? Perhaps the groom likes to brew beer and they have a special wedding brew? Maybe they have a signature cocktail? This is another way to get your guests connected to you and what makes you the couple you are. AND---how cool is it to see on Instagram a ton of pictures - moments you perhaps would have otherwise missed? And consider the theme and vibe of your wedding...want lettering on something rustic like an old barn window or panel? Clean, sleek glass? Chalkboard?
Framing paper table numbers is a wonderful and simple option. Especially if you have beautiful floral centerpieces. You don't want to take away from the star of the table setting. But perhaps you want something different? Here at the Paperly Studio, we can letter on paper AND can offer other options to tie into your design theme such as agates, wood blocks, glass or acrylic sheets.
