When choosing your wedding decor, you'll pay special attention to the flowers, linens, and furniture. Once you've picked all that out, you'll probably realize you could use some wedding signs as finishing touches. A wedding sign can serve several different purposes. It might simply be a piece of decor that spiffs up your space and maybe even is a little sentimental. But it might also point guests in the direction of the ceremony, the parking lot or the bar area. It might give them instructions on what to do at a photo booth or other special station. So signs can be important elements to guide guests as they enjoy the celebration you've planned for them. From big (a wooden welcome sign) to small (a table marker) these wedding sign ideas will inspire your own big day's decor.
