It's a small detail that's easily looked over, but having a few signs posted around at your wedding can be super helpful. Think: writing out the ceremony information and wedding party names instead of printing programs; directing people from the parking lot to the chapel; even putting a cocktail menu on display. If you have fancy penmanship skills (or you can enlist someone from your wedding party), why not show them off? Here are a few DIY ideas to inspire your own wedding day signage.
