Should My Wedding Include a Welcome Sign?



February 17, 2023

When guests arrive at your venue, you want to “wow” them right from the start, right?! I couldn’t agree more! What better way to make an impression than with a beautiful welcome sign? Welcome signs are one of my favorite things to create and I really think they set the precedent for your wedding. There are a variety of options as far as budgets and preferences.

You can certainly create a gorgeous sign from a simple framed print or a sturdy foam board. However, you can create soft, romantic moods by choosing to use fabric for your welcome sign and have it hung on a display. Be sure to keep your venue in mind… what locations would work best for this? I suggest checking with the venue for any display restrictions! Another thing to consider is the weather. Breezy fabrics like silk or linen can lend a draping movement, but would a windy day ruin the whole display? With my expertise and guidance, I can help you come up with the most gorgeous welcome sign that lets guests know this is about to be an amazing day from the moment they arrive. So to answer your question of whether or not you need a welcome sign, my advice is YES!
