Ring Bearer and Flower Girl Ceremony Signs

One of the cutest ideas for weddings in 2012 and 2013 is to have your flower girl or ring bearer ditch the traditional pillow and/or basket of petals and carry adorable signs! These signs can send all kinds of messages to your wedding guests.

The most commonly used saying is “Here Comes the Bride”.  This popular saying becomes even cuter with a tiny tot to carry it right before you walk down the aisle. I love if you have more than one flower girl that each girl carries a small sign spelling out “Here Comes the Bride”.

Or you can have a sign with words of excitement like the ones below.  How cute are the ones that say “Uncle _____ Here Comes Your Girl”?

I also love the signs that give instructions like “please rise”.  The one main instruction that guests forget all the time!

You can even have these signs say a funny message.  Not sure I would recommend this for every bride, but the one about turning off cell phones is hilarious.

Or try a sign that says “last chance to run”!

What do you think about these signs? Cute or tacky?

Would you have your little ones carry them at your wedding?

It’s All in the Details: Wooden Wedding Signs!

One of my favorite new decor elements that brides all over are incorporating in to their weddings are wooden wedding signs!

I have always said that weddings that make the biggest impact don’t overlook the details.  Wooden wedding signs, although a small detail, are a great way to bring character and personality in to your wedding. I think they are the perfect compliment to a rustic, vintage or garden wedding.  The best part is that they are an easy DIY project that anyone can do!

There are so many ways to use wooden weddings signs in your wedding and I have listed some of my favorite ways you can use them at your wedding!

One way brides are using wooden signs is for directional signs.  If your wedding venue is spread out and you want to help guests know where things are located (i.e. ceremony, reception, etc.) you can make wooden signs that not only look great but are helpful as well. I love the idea of making something functional, like a directional sign, that could be quite boring in to something that enhances the wedding theme.

Another functional way to use wooden signs is for the menu!

You can also use a wooden sign during your ceremony.  How cute is this sign for the ringbearer (or your pooch) that says “Here Comes the Bride”?

Another way to incorporate a wooden sign is to use them on the back of your chairs during the reception!

If you want to add a pop of color in your decor, you can always paint the wooden sign a bright color.

And some of the best ways to make your wooden signs stand out is to come up with a cute, humorous saying to paint on it, like the sign below.

If you are using a wooden sign in a unique way, we would love to hear about it!

Happy Planning!
