Keep It Minimal
“A swanky neon sign crafted with a sweet cursive sentiment is chic enough to stand on its own. So not only will you save money on additional over-the-top wedding decor, but you'll also invest in a piece that can be displayed in your home!" explains Miller. "A glowing sign that says 'The best is yet to come' or 'Love is all you need' is a stylish reminder of your wedding day that will spark joy every time you look at it.”
“The best thing about neon signs? They're a cutting-edge way to express your personalities!" says Miller. "Hint at how you met with a 'You had me at hello!' sign, shout out where you’re from with something like, 'California love,' or share a sentiment unique to your relationship like, 'It was always you.'"
Light the Way
"Typically, signs are used at weddings to steer guests in the right direction," explains Miller. "Instead of the traditional wooden sign, why not greet guests in a more modern way with a glowing 'Welcome' neon sign or a 'Meet us at the bar' directive, pointing to cocktail hour? It's a whimsical way to show guests where to go.”

“Get a custom-made 'Thank you' or 'Merci' neon sign and have your wedding photographer take your picture with it on the big day," suggests Miller.
