202 designs

Weddings are about community, celebration, and love. When your loved ones enter your wedding venue, you want them to feel your joy and appreciation for their presence.

One way to express your gratitude and make sure every guest feels welcomed is to use a wedding welcome sign. These beautiful signs not only serve the practical purpose of showing people that they've arrived at the heart of the celebration, but they also make people feel valued.

Why Having a Wedding Welcome Sign is Essential

Welcome signs are one of the most important functional decor items you'll need at a wedding. They are one of the most highly requested sign types for weddings all over the world and for good reason.

The welcome sign is the first sign that your guests will see – so it sets the tone for the whole event. When people see it at the entrance to your wedding, you want it to hint at what kind of atmosphere they are about to become immersed in for the rest of the celebration.

It also typically signifies the entrance point of the wedding as guests are arriving, so it plays a crucial role in guiding everyone to the right place. Without a sign, it might be difficult for guests to know exactly where they are meant to be heading.

All in all, a wedding welcome sign helps direct people to the correct entrance, sets the tone for the style of the wedding, and adds warmth to the process of receiving your loved ones.

What Every Good Wedding Welcome Sign Should Include

Wedding welcome signs should be informative, aesthetically pleasing, and a reflection of the style that you and your partner have chosen for the event. But while you should embrace your creative side with regard to the typography and colour palette, there is some information that every sign should include.

As long as you have these features on your wedding welcome sign, it will be able to fulfil its role as a beacon for your guests to follow. You want people to be able to look at your sign and form a clear idea about where to go, what to expect, and what kind of environment they're walking into.

Where to Position Your Wedding Welcome Sign

In addition to featuring the right information, your wedding welcome sign should be positioned in such a way that people can see it from multiple angles and at a distance.

The most important part of positioning your welcome sign is to make it easily visible to oncoming guests. This could be at the opening of a building, by an entrance gate, or anywhere that guests will encounter as they arrive at the event.

Cotton Bird's extensive range of wedding welcome signs come with the option of being mounted in an oak frame for support, so you can rest assured that your sign will sit securely wherever you choose to position it. This also allows you to easily pin it up on a wall for extra stability.

If you want to add a patterned mount to position it on a table or flat surface, we have that option too. Depending on the venue you are using for your wedding, you might have to get creative about how and where you place this important sign.
