Handmade wedding signs with clever words

Wedding signs are popular at South Sound weddings and wedding receptions. Receptions signs are pretty and practical. The signs point wedding guests to the ceremony, wedding reception, bar, dinner and dancing -- in an often, unfamiliar location. Wedding signs are very popular at barn weddings, especially when using weathered wood for the sign. Wedding signs can be handmade by talented carpenter - artist friends with old fence boards and chalkboards. You can also find wedding professionals who will handmake wedding signs for you. Be sure you find someone who has beautiful handwriting or script to write on the signs. Some signs are printed with beautiful script. Find the wedding sign that suits your wedding style the best.

Here is some of the most fun sign language we have seen. Feel free to use at your wedding and send us a photo of your wedding signs on our social media links or Contact Us page on our website.

Ceremony seating signage

  • Pick a seat, either side, you’re loved by both, the groom and bride.
  • Choose a seat, not a side.  We’re all family once the knot is tied.
  • Now that we are together forever, please feel free to sit wherever.
  • Since this wedding has 2 brides, pick a seat not a side.
  • We are all one family. Please choose a seat, not a side.
