The ultimate wedding signage checklist: Every sign you need for your big day | Paper & Ink Studio

Hey there, future newlyweds!

When it comes to pulling off your dream wedding, it’s all about nailing those tiny details—like the signs that guide and delight your guests every step of the way. Imagine a welcome sign that draws them into your love story or direction signs that dance them from ceremony to reception without missing a beat. Wedding signs do more than just point the way—they weave the vibe and voice of your special day into every corner.

Think about it: each sign is a chance to sprinkle a little more of your personality around your venue. A cheeky quote here, a sweet hashtag there—these touches invite your guests to connect and share, making every moment Instagrammable. From the big entrance to the tiniest details, your signage sets the scene for a day that’s as seamless as it is unforgettable.

And hey, in today's snap-happy world, you’ll want those signs to look pretty sharp in photos, right? The right choice in signage not only keeps your day running smooth but also frames your wedding perfectly in every photo that hits the 'gram, making your big day all the buzz.

Now, as you’re gearing up for the grand finale of your wedding planning, don’t forget to give your signage the lead time it deserves. We recommend getting your orders in at least two months ahead. This lets us get every detail just right—from drafting those personal touches to the final print—ensuring all your signs are ready to shine, right on schedule. Trust us, you don’t want to be sweating the small stuff when you should be sparkling!
