The writing’s on the wall, and we’re here to show you how to illuminate it with flowers.
Wedding signage has been a key part of wedding decor for years now, with placards, boards and guideposts all helping to lead ceremony and reception guests through the event at hand. Sometimes they’re used to indicate where guests should sit, sometimes to convey a particular wish or parting remark from the happy couple. Many times, wedding signage serves as a welcome, or as a map. Often, signage is used as backdrop or other decor, showcasing the couple’s name, for instance. No matter how it functions, wedding signage is an excellent means to both connecting with guests and ensuring that your event goes smoothly. Naturally, it’s also a great spot to carry through your floral scheme. See how it’s done below.
When you’ve emblazoned your new status on a stack of gorgeous wood large enough to create an entire panel, you need flowers that stack up, too. Here a design of greenery, roses and hydrangea nestles over the sign, bringing a soft, fresh feel to the backdrop of wood. This helps the signage both blend into the outdoor setting and connect to the flowers used in the ceremony.
Silver dollar eucalyptus clusters around a copper sign painted to read “wedding ceremony” in white, whimsical script. The contrast here between the rustic brown of the sign and the light, silvery green of the shaggy eucalyptus makes for an arresting visual. The sign’s patina and the fact that it is nearly receding into green makes it feel like it’s been there forever.
Of course hoops are rolling into sign territory–they’r everywhere! A creative, artistic bride and groom might create a backdrop or other centerpiece wall that includes signage, hoops, lights, frames and other decor pieces personal to them. We love how little flower vignettes hang from the hoops here, some of which enclose words that are meaningful to the couple and the event at hand. Don’t forget to festoon your ceremony and reception signs with flowers. They’re like a fresh exclamation point.
