Do a quick search on Pinterest and you’re sure to come up with plenty of wedding signs—they’re a cute, personalized element to incorporate into your ceremony and reception décor. Signs are a helpful way to welcome guests, give them directions, and clue them in on wedding details, like the signature cocktail choices and the various cake flavors on offer. And while basic paper signs will get the job done, you could instead use this as an opportunity to get creative with your signage displays.

Enter our latest favorite wedding trend: banner signs. Print the wedding details directly onto pieces of fabric like cotton or linen, then hang the banner in a spot where guests can easily see. Need some banner-sign inspiration? Check out some of our favorite takes on this new wedding trend.

This adorable banner (love the notched bottom edge) lists the couple’s signature cocktail offerings; illustrations also help in case some guests aren’t familiar with the drinks. Hang the sign from the cocktail bar so guests can decide what they’d like to order while they wait in line.

Save paper by skipping the printed menu cards and opting for a larger banner-style menu display. If your reception space is quite large, you might want to have multiple menu signs hanging in different spots so everyone will be sure to see it.
