You want to make sure all of your wedding-day details are just right. And you should start with the first piece of décor your guests will see: your welcome sign. Your welcome sign should offer a taste of what your guests should expect from your big-day. Couples looking for an easy and inexpensive DIY project will love the classic look of monogrammed chalkboard easels. If you're throwing a seaside bash, go for calligraphed pieces of driftwood. You can also adorn a sign with colorful, blooming florals for a festive summer wedding or hang eucalyptus garlands for a bohemian affair, while urban couples can opt for sleek graphics and cool typography for a modern twist.

And these welcome signs aren't just for show—they also provide an important service for your guests. Many couples use them as a master itinerary—from displaying times for the evening's cocktail hour to serving as a map to direct guests to the next stop of the night—to give friends and family an idea of what's to come. Couples who want to see their Instagram feed flooded with their wedding photos should remember to write their wedding hashtag on the sign so guests can be sure to use it while sharing all of those candid moments.

No matter what your style, we found a sign to complement your wedding's overall vibe and theme. Scroll through our roundup of 24 creative wedding welcome signs to get inspired.
