Sometimes you come across wedding inspiration that’s just so fun and fabulous it make’s you want to say “I do” all over again. That’s how I feel about the handmade wooden wedding signs that keep popping up at chic and stylish weddings. Have you seen them? They’re fun and fresh and look quite at home whether you’re having a casual backyard reception or a formal country club event. Set them up to greet guests as they arrive, or to point them in the right direction to the ceremony or reception. You can order these chic accessories from various artists (including a number of Etsy retailers) or, if you’re feeling crafty, you can make this a fun DIY wedding project. So here’s a little wedding eye candy for you…I hope you like these as much as I do!
The gorgeous signs above were handmade by Etsy retailer Family Attic. They’re as beautiful as they are functional, directing guests this way and that. They also make a great photo op – just check out the sweet, sweet photo above. So cute!
Can wedding decor be casual and upscale at the same time? If it’s these sophisticated wedding signs from Chocolate Butterbean (above), then the answer is yes! Handpainted or printed, the designer works with couples to make a one-of-a-kind creation for your wedding day. Personalize your sign with sillouette images and your favorite quote about true love.
Rustic wooden signs don’t have to be fancy or elaborate to be effective. The signs above have a simple innocence and elegance about them. They’re the perfect touch for a backyard garden or farm wedding. Using reclaimed wood makes them eco-friendly, too.
If you have the time and inclination, this would make a great DIY project. Use reclaimed wood or buy wood and stakes from your local home improvement store. A small can of paint and stain is all you need to get started. It could be a fun hands on project for you and your fiance to tackle together. What’s the beauty of rustic style? It doesn’t have to be perfect to be pretty!
Last, but not least, I had to share two of my favorites. These wedding signs convey a sense of humor and show off the personality of the bride and groom. Check out the couple on the right. You know a good time was had by all at their wedding! Whether you choose whimsical and quirky or elegant and understated, rustic wooden signs will be one of those little details that your guests will love.
