Some wedding trends come and go, while others stick around for the long haul. One wedding décor trend that's not going anywhere? Wedding mirror signs—they are here to stay. Ornate framed mirrors bearing pretty calligraphy have been popping up at ceremonies and receptions over the past few years, and we expect to continue to see them at nuptials in the future. After all, a fancy baroque mirror is the perfect vehicle for all your wedding signage.
Mirrors have multiple purposes on your wedding day. Besides being a total necessity in your getting-ready suite, they can be used as welcome signs, an escort card display, a dinner menu at the reception, and more. List your signature cocktails on a mirror and then set it at the bar. Jot down each table number on small framed mirrors, so everyone can easily spot their seat. Prop up a large mirror at the entrance to your ceremony that announces the schedule of events. The possibilities are endless.
And the best part is that any bride can easily DIY a wedding mirror sign. Simply head to a local thrift shop or your favorite home décor store and pick up a mirror (or two, or three!) on sale. Spray paint your finds in a metallic gold, or whatever hue complements your wedding theme. Then buy a white paint pen at your local craft store and jot down your message on the mirror. Not feeling confident in your handwriting? You can find customizable decals on Etsy that you can personalize with your wedding schedule, favorite quote, welcome message, and more. Once your decal arrives, simply stick it on the mirrored surface and you're done.
