Weddings are traditionally a time when people come together. However, during the Coronavirus pandemic, government guidelines state that we have to keep our distance from others, particularly indoors. That's where social distancing signs come in.

These have an important role to play in reminding guests to remain physically distanced from those outside their household. It can be all too easy to get caught up in the moment and forget the guidelines at an emotional event such as a wedding. While you want everyone to have a good time, it's crucial to keep ourselves and our loved ones as safe and protected as possible from COVID-19.

We get it: nobody wants their wedding to look like a corporate health and safety convention. However, you'll be amazed at how chic social distancing signs are. We've found a range of designs to suit all different wedding styles, from elegant to rustic - and even glamorous!

Most of these social distancing signs are digital templates you can edit, and then either print at home or use a printing service. We'd recommend printing them onto card, for durability, and having a good number to dot around your venue. You can put your own stamp on your social distancing signs, such as displaying them in frames or on easels, and adding flowers or other décor.

These social distancing signs will help your guests keep their distance physically - even though you'll know you're all together in spirit.
