If first impressions are everything, why not begin your wedding with a detail that sets the scene for the rest of the celebration? Your wedding welcome sign is the perfect moment to showcase the style of your big day, so don’t shy away from getting extra creative. 

To keep the event feel cohesive, you’ll want your wedding welcome sign to echo motifs featured elsewhere in your overall design scheme. Repeat fonts, colors, and floral choices found on your invitations and other major décor moments for a planner-approved look.

Beyond that directive, though, the sky is seriously the limit when it comes to what to display. For further inspiration, we rounded up a whole roster of stylish wedding welcome sign ideas for you to peruse. Whether you opt for an acrylic wedding welcome sign, a DIY wedding welcome sign, or a banner featuring a favorite song lyric or quote, rest assured that as long as you stay true to you, the style will perfectly vibe with your celebration.
