2019 Wedding Signage Trends I’m Excited About

The wedding season is well underway and I thought it would be fun to share some exciting wedding signage trends I’ve been seeing! We can’t ignore that mirrors, chalkboards, and wooden signs are still going to be very prevalent in weddings. However, I’m here to embrace these new mediums that are becoming more and more popular.

*Please note that not all of these examples are my own work.

Let’s start with my favorite – Acrylic!

I love these see-through beauties. I love it when they are painted on the back, too. They are sleek, modern, and brings such a great air of sophistication. Here’s an awesome table chart I lettered for a bride last year on these panels in the coolest frames.

And here’s a dessert table sign for a styled shoot where I convinced my hubby to make a black block stand.

Another trend I’ve been seeing are really slick sign holders.

You can go the rustic route with a wooden stand or even a more contemporary route with a painted block. I’ve also seen really modern metal ones which give me heart eyes all over, like the one below from Ink Love and Paper.

Lastly, a trend that is slowly creeping in is fabric signs, more specifically fabric backdrops.

These are soft and romantic. When adorned with lettering, you’re sure to give your wedding an air of classical, modern, romance.

Here’s a total throwback to a Gilmore Girls styled shoot where was one of my first attempts.

But truly, these huge backdrops full of beautiful letters are to. die. for.

Wedding Stationery Etiquette: What To Write On My Wedding Invitation?

Greetings earthlings. I am here to bestow upon you a new language, wedding stationery etiquette.

No, seriously – does anyone actually get this? I have to look it up A LOT when I am working on a styled shoot and the organizers give me free range on what to write. And I tend to stick with the same shtick. But no more, my friends.

Here’s how a traditional wedding invitation reads (for the most part)-

Mr. and Mrs. Stevens request the pleasure of your presence at the marriage of their daughter Jane Valerie Stevens to John Richard Jones …

Now, there is NOTHING wrong with that. AT ALL.(Sidenote – my momma told me that in the Asian culture – the boy’s family paid. Isn’t that interesting?) If that fits your wedding, then heck- GO FOR IT! It’s YOUR WEDDING, don’t let some girl with two-day hair, typing a blog post in her bed at 2 a.m. tell you what to do.

But here’s the fun part. Let’s do some digging up to find some witty and different inspiration for creative wedding stationery copy.

 

This is such a fun way to say we’re doing this thing and we are gonna have fun doing it!

Simple, to the point, and this card is cute, cute, cute! I love how casual it is and this stamp/ink look is so awesome.

Okay, so this is a little long – but I mean it’s definitely personal, and what’s more personal than two people sharing one of their most important days together?

Another long one – but it promises good beer and barbecue. I ain’t one for the beer, but the BBQ? Count me in.

I hope these very cute worded and designed cards bring you some inspiration (and me, too, honestly!) to think outside the box and have some fun for your big day! Wedding stationery etiquette, you don’t scare me 😛
