Choosing the right design and décor for your wedding is crucial. You want to have the wedding of your dreams, but all of the custom details really add up in a budget. Creating your own wedding signs or banners is a great way to get the custom décor of your dreams without taking up your entire budget. While it might sound overwhelming, these three easy, simple kinds of wedding signs can be the perfect solution to your dream wedding décor. Here is a quick introduction to DIY wedding signs.
Fabric signs and banners are the most popular type of handmade wedding décor. These can be very budget friendly depending on the type or quality of fabric that you choose. Canvas is a versatile, affordable fabric for wedding signs but you can choose any fabric available to create the look you want. Due to the countless fabric options, these signs can be completely customized to the theme of your wedding. The shape, message, or design shown on fabric signs can be changed and customized to fit your wedding. The hardest part of creating a fabric sign is making a stencil of the image that you want displayed.
Another completely customizable type of wedding décor is wooden signs. These are the most cost efficient kind of signs, since they don’t have to be purchased in a certain brand or style. Wooden signs can be stained, painted, and weathered based on the look you want to achieve. This type of sign is entirely unique to your wedding and can be easily displayed in most venues. These signs are especially popular for outdoor weddings they can be attached to a stake and placed in the ground to point guests to the reception or ceremony location while also providing decoration. Since these are so easy to create, you will save from last minute stress about your décor.
These are the most commonly seen handmade wedding signs. Garland signs and banners can be created out of any fabric or wooden letter. Burlap is a popular fabric option for garland signs, and is often cut into triangles on which messages are displayed. These pieces are then strung together and can be hung throughout the wedding venue. As with the other two kinds of wedding signs, garland signs can be customized in shape and design that you want displayed. Stringing painted wooden letters together to display a message is a very quick stress free way to create a wedding sign that will stand out.
Setting It All Up:
One of the benefits of designing your own wedding signs is that you can customize them to fit your venue. When you purchase already made signs and other décor online, it can be hard to gauge where you will hang them within your venue but with a custom sign you can make sure that they are created to fit the right place. Using your own signs will eliminate some of the stress of these last minute details when you are setting up the décor on the big day. Although these signs will require hanging, skip the stress of trying to hammer in nails throughout your venue that will have to be patched up later. Easy, adhesive magnetic banner hooks can be used to make sure that your signs stay put all night. These hooks can be purchased for a very affordable price and won’t leave you with a mess of holes to clean up.
From design to set-up, creating your own wedding signs will save you stress and time while allowing you to have the wedding of your dreams. You can get the custom décor you have always dreamed of without taking up half of your budget to get it! These are just a few of the options available to help get you started!
