    Yes. A welcome, cards & gifts, and guestbook.

    Just a couple, one for the guest book and one for the seating chart. Both look like old windows. Debating on doing one for the reception timeline.

    Yea. We had a few. But didn’t clutter the space with them.

    Yay. I wanted them but it wasn't in the budget, and i'm not exactly a DIY girl

    Maybe... I don't want to spends a lot of money though because it's not like they have much of a purpose after the wedding.

    Yea. I want an unplugged ceremony sign, which I know people will ignore, but I think having it coupled with an announcement by our officiant will give us a fighting chance. We'll also have a couple different tables set up around the perimeter of our reception (kid's activity table, board game table (for introverted guests), memorial table, etc.) that we'll stick some signs on.

    Undecided on this one. If we do, it’s a last minute detail. We don’t have to have it.

    Yay! kinda. I'm having literally 2 signs- one for the unplugged Ceremony (I DIY'd that! It looks awesome!) and one for at the bar warning of the heavy photography (as a reminder to drink responsibly)! I don't think we have any other signs. we might and I may have just forgot. We will see in a couple months!

    Yea. We’ll likely have a cards & gifts sign, Mr & Mrs sign and possibly a welcome sign.

    We had not intended to have ANY, but then my friend (who was also planning her wedding) made us one!

    I nearly cried when I opened up the box, it was a complete surprise, and she customized it just for us. We need to find a place for it in our apartment, because it's so amazing.

    I agree with previous comments. We are doing some. A fun one at the bar, a welcome sign, and one to announce our "unplugged ceremony". My family makes maple syrup and sells it commercially, so we are using small bottles of syrup as our favors. I'm still trying to think of a cute sign that says something like "from our family to yours, thanks for being part of our special day" or something similar.

    Nay. Might have a sign for where to enter but otherwise not so much.

    We're not allowed to have decorations of any kind in the National Park, and we're transporting everyone to the reception location in passenger vans, so there really isn't a reason for fancy signs.

    We will probably have a few like a welcome sign and memorial table sign. I also have one with our hashtag on it that I used for our engagement party, and will most likely use at bridal shower and wedding.
