Custom Wedding Signs
Hand-painted custom wedding signs are a dreamy addition to your wedding décor
Combining style and function, they’re perfect for guiding guests around your venue, injecting a little light-hearted humour, or simply adding a personal touch.
At The Ivy Cottage, all our wedding signs are designed in-house and crafted by hand at our studio in South Yorkshire. Working closely with you, we’ll transform your ideas into a detailed sketch and layout proof. Then, after cutting, sanding and staining each piece of wood, your sign will be hand-lettered and beautifully finished.
Available in an array of stunning colours, we can also incorporate unique hand-painted illustrations. If rustic wood isn’t right for your wedding, we offer a range of other materials including acrylic, fabric, paper, vinyl, metal, slate and ceramic.
Prices start from £35
Wedding Ceremony Signs
Kick off the festivities with a sign welcoming guests to your wedding.
Timeline or Order of the Day
Let everyone know what they can look forward to and ensure they don’t miss a thing! A timeline sign usually includes key events such as your ceremony, wedding breakfast, speeches, first dance, cake cutting and send-off.
The days of an usher asking new arrivals whether they’re guests of the bride or groom are long gone. For a relaxed, laidback feel, use a custom sign to encourage friends and family to sit wherever they like.
Although we document and share almost everything on social media these days, you may not want your guests waving mobile phones in your face as you enter and exit your ceremony. A polite sign requesting no pictures be taken or shared should do the trick.
Display your ceremony program in sign-form and create a beautiful keepsake at the same time. You can include your names, your wedding date and important members of the wedding party.
Ideal for farm or festival weddings, directional signs are essential for larger venues, especially if your celebration is spread across different areas.
Wedding Reception Signs
When it comes to table plans, the design options are endless! We love coming up with creative ideas, but we also know how important it is to keep things simple and clear if you want your guests seated in a jiffy.
If you’re planning a more relaxed celebration, a table plan may not be necessary, but a custom sign can be useful to let guests know they’re free to sit wherever they like.
If you decide to use a formal table plan, you’ll need table numbers or names too. Keeping the design consistent with the rest of your décor looks stylish and impactful.
Remind guests what they’ve ordered, tell them when the BBQ is due to start, or run through what’s on offer at the buffet. Whatever your food arrangements, let people know with a large freestanding sign, a series of smaller table-top signs, or a printed menu at each place setting.
A custom sign is ideal for a sweet cart or dessert station. List the sweet treats on display, encourage guests to help themselves, or simply feature a cake-related quote.
Highlight all the special little touches you’ve added to ensure your guests feel pampered and well looked after. We’ve previously created custom signs for parasols and umbrellas, cosy blankets to protect from cold weather, and even comfy flip-flops for weary feet.
From photo booths to guest books, signs are a great way to grab people’s attention and ensure they get involved.
