Wedding Inspiration: 10 Creative Welcome Signs

By Lauren Saylor of A Fabulous Fete

DIY welcome sign

One thing I think is an important yet often overlooked wedding detail is the welcome sign. Your friends and family are traveling to attend your celebration, and they are most likely visiting the wedding site for the very first time. Help them get their bearings and also set the tone for the rest of the wedding day with a gorgeous welcome sign. This makes for a great DIY project, but there are also a ton of pre-made versions out there you can order and customize. Here are 10 of my favorite welcome-sign ideas:

1. A simple wood sign with bright white lettering could easily be recreate with stencils or stickers if you aren’t the hand-lettering type. Top with foliage to add a little whimsy. Image by John Newsome via Green Wedding Shoes

2. Transform a glass pane into a pretty framed welcome sign; add a few coordinating decor elements to tie the whole wedding-look together. Image by Paperlily via Style Me Pretty

3. An extra-large script sign will surely catch their eye if you display it amid a large grassy expanse. Image by Readyluck Photography via Martha Stewart Weddings

4. The easiest of the DIY signs? A chalkboard! All you need to do is paint an art easel with chalkboard paint and add some flowers. Image by Anthem Photography via 100 Layer Cake

5. Enter your wedding details and click ‘buy’ with this gorgeous version from Minted. Image via Inspired By This
