Creative Wedding Signage

Wedding signs are a great way to get creative and keep your guests up to date on what to pay attention to. You can place signage as a welcome for your guests, to give directions as to where the party is, or just use them to get a warm-hearted laugh from your wedding guests. Martha Stewart Weddings and Brides.com offer a charming selection of wedding signs to get inspired by!

Signs at your wedding can be easy, fun, and an inexpensive way to add detail. If you are all set on your venue, you can choose frames, colors, and calligraphy to match the ambiance of your wedding. Wedding signage can be the elegant touch you and your bridal party work on to bond before your big day!

Stylish Lighting

Part of capturing the magic on your wedding day is making sure you have the right lighting to accentuate the details. When planning your ceremony and reception, consult with your Event Designer about ways to enhance the natural light in your venue for daytime festivities and create ambiance for evening entertaining.  Some of the most impactful lighting options can be achieved through the use of candles, string lights, and lanterns.  These simple options offer enormous flexibility and versatility with respect to event style, mood, and budget. 

Candles:

Can you ever really overdo it with candles? Some of the best ways to incorporate candles into your wedding include decorating the aisle with candles to mark the aisle entrance or asking each guest to hold a lit candle during the religious portion of your ceremony.   Candles easily transition into the cocktail hour and reception by incorporating clusters of candles into your centerpieces.  Or using candles throughout the space to accent windowsills and in seating vignettes.

String Lights:

Talk about setting the mood! String lights are an excellent choice for wedding lighting because they can go almost anywhere. You can never go wrong with stringing lights above and across your reception, as featured in the collage below. This is a stylish and elegant way to incorporate lighting into your wedding. One of our favorite ways to get creative with string lighting includes having a wall of hanging bistro or string lights as your backdrop, as in the bottom left photo. Additional ways to have a unique twist to string lights include letting them dangle as individual pieces, as a type of chandelier, or to wrap them around a set of trees to create your own, personal backdrop for photos. Special note, be sure to use exterior grade string lighting outside and the indoor grade string lighting for inside use.

Lanterns:

Including lanterns adds a whole new feel to your lighting decor. There are several options of lanterns to choose from to match your venue’s theme. Favorites for this style are paper lanterns that hang from the ceiling. Paper lanterns can include actual tea-lights or battery-powered lights. We recommend battery-powered lights so that your paper lanterns look lit up throughout your ceremony and reception. To elevate your lighting decor, consider placing tea lights in a hanging glass lantern, as featured in the bottom right corner. Although subtle, the floating effect of the lanterns creates a magical feel to the room. Have we mentioned how much we love the hanging mason jar lanterns in the featured ceremony? By adding the twine to hang the mason jars, this couple really accentuated the rustic feel of their ceremony!
