A wedding welcome sign is the first thing guests will see when they arrive on your big day, so it will give an immediate hint at the style and vibe that's to come. With that in mind, we think it's a great opportunity to make a stylish first impression.
To get you feeling inspired, we've scoured the web for the prettiest weddings signs around and it turns out the sky is pretty much the limit. From chalkboards and rustic wooden pallets to floral installations and hand-painted creations, you can easily match your wedding welcome sign with your theme.
Wedding signs aren't just about the aesthetics, though. They're also a handy way to point guests in the direction of the bar (so important), let guests know that you're going unplugged or give them an idea of what will be happening and when.
So, without further delay, here are our favourite wedding welcome sign ideas!
