Today we are talking absolutely essential wedding signs!  Why do I need wedding signs?  you ask.  These are delightful props that can make your wedding feel incredibly inviting and personal it shows that you have 100% thought about your guests and how to make them feel welcome at your wedding.

I’ve organised quite a many event now and it always surprised me how open spaces, empty rooms and staircases put people off from entering when the place is unfamiliar to them.  People look for cues to make sure they are going in the right entrance etc this is why you need wedding signs scattered around your venue.  I’ve also noticed that if you leave things for people to take don’t assume they will – with events you often really need to guide your guests around and obviously you cant’t do that personally, so wedding signs are perfect to act as your cues and guides.
