Handmade signs feature clever words

I have seen some clever signs to welcome wedding guests. The style of signs (font, colors, background) give guests a visual reminder of the wedding theme. Some signs subtly communicate the theme while also directing guests.

I like the signs that put some fun into the wedding and bring a smile to guests. The ring bearer holding a sign, "Ring Security" or the flower girl pulling a wagon with a sign "Here Comes the Bride."

The chalkboard signs can be rented or custom-made by the Chalk Whisperer. Frame sizes and colors vary. You choose the text and colors for each sign.

Ceremony seating signs

  • 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.
  • Friends of the bride, friends of the groom, sit where you like. There is plenty of room.
  • Come as you are. Stay as long as you can. We’re all family now, so there’s no seating plan.
