Rustic Wedding Signs: Editor's Top Picks

Rustic is one of my favorite wedding themes, so I enjoyed searching for wedding signs that could fit the style without being overwhelming. Look below to see what my top five picks are.

Rustic Wedding Welcome Foam Board

Customize this lightweight foam board with your and your partner's names and wedding date. Made with a wood print, it's dent-resistant material and works for indoor and outdoor events. My favorite part is that seller offers 3M command strips or a double-wing back easel for mounting at a small additional cost.

Custom Photo Rustic Wedding Sign

With a wood-like finish, you can go numerous ways with this rustic welcome sign. You can personalize the sign with your own text and image plus, there are 29 sizes available in horizontal or vertical orientations and five material options (printed on a matte poster, canvas wrap, acrylic and much more). It would be really difficult to have an identical sign to any other couple.

Light Up Rustic Wedding Bar Sign

This wedding bar sign is battery-powered and has holes on the back for easy hanging. The best thing about this wedding sign is that it isn't single-use. After the wedding, get more bang for you buck by repurposing it for your mini bar area at home––who doesn't love reusing decor?

Personalized Rustic Wood Wedding Sign

Display this beautiful solid pine wood rustic sign with laser-cut 3D lettering at the ceremony or reception. Pick your desired size, wood stain, letter color and wording for the perfect rustic look. The whimsical script is definitely my favorite detail on this sign.

Frosted Acrylic Rustic Wedding Sign

Simple yet sleek, I love this frosted rustic wedding reception sign. The gold lettering elevates the decoration and complements the dark walnut wood base perfectly. If you want a matching reserved table sign for the bride's family, the vendor has that available on their Minted storefront.

Label your tables, like this petal and herb tossing station, with charming and elegant wood signs. I love this couple's send-off idea of throwing herbs instead of rice.
