Are you making your own signs or are you buying them from a pro?

    A little of both, we are keeping an eye out on yard sale pages for used signs. We will probably do our direction signs ourselves.

    Neither, but if I were to get signs it would be pro.

    If we were doing a local wedding this may be the 1 thing I'd opt to DIY

    We are making all of our wedfing signs - giving some at the end of the night as gifts to some guests. My college aged son will be home for the summer & is excited to make these with ya for his momma’s wedding. I’m teacher who is off for the summer so I have all summer to be in “wedding mode” and I love crafting!!

    DIY. I haven't finished yet but, I've started working on the background color (they are going to be a galaxy print with silver writing) and they look so cool. I'll definitely post some pics when they are finished.

    Half and half. Ordered a design off Etsy. Spray painted frames for them after they were printed.

    We're not having many signs. I probably need to have a couple made. So, pro.

    We don't plan on having a ton of signage, but this will be DIY for sure. I have a few friends who have offered to lend some items to us, and another friend who has been dying to use her new cricket and has been sending me things she'd love to make.

    Getting all of our signs from Etsy. If I can't find one, my sister will customize and get it printed for me.

    Some signs I made (see first photo), but some signs I was not comfortable making on my own (such as the 2nd photo).

    Pro - My venue, surprisingly, has a lot of signage that we get with our package.

    Our signs were minimal, but we were married in a remote area, so directional signs along the road were a necessity and I painted those myself.
