Have you thought about decorative signs at your wedding? Decorative signs can be a sweet way of letting your guests know some important info about your day (from the drink menu to your wedding hashtag!) Will you be sprucing up your wedding space with a welcome sign or some cute rhymes?

What do you think? Are decorative signs a yea or a nay?

    Yea. They're multi functional in the sense that it's decor and has purpose

    Yea for some. We're doing a welcome sign at the gate to the reception venue just so people know for sure they are in the right place. We're also doing menu signs for our buffet and maybe like a location one

    Yes, we plan to use some. However, we only want to use them if we feel like we will display them in our house again, so we haven't official picked up what we want.

    Yes we will have some. Our guest book will also be a large canvas for everyone to sign.

    We didn’t have a single sign at our wedding! No regrets about that.

    Yea but not excessively and it’s the easiest way to work art deco designs into our decorations.

    We will have decorative signs leading down the ceremony aisle, as a seating chart, and at our wedding favor table.

    Nay, I have not thought about them. Unless I DIY them, other than that I see them as waste of money.

    We will have a few small ones on the guest book and memorial table. We bought a pack of 6 small chalkboard signs, painted the bottom gold and will paint on the wording. I don't want them to look too rustic.

    We have one sign and that's a welcome sign that we will use as decoration in our house after.

    We'll have a few. A welcome sign and an unplugged ceremony sign for sure. My fiance also found an adorable quote that he wants made into a sign for our sweetheart table.
