Felici Events Tips for Wedding Planning and Event Production - Signage
Signage is not something that clients may think of doing, however, signage can be important for any event. Being a wedding planner I ensure we take the event to the last detail, and signage can be one of the most important dotted i's and crossed t's.
It can direct vendors to their load-in / load-out and designated parking areas, or keep out of town guests from getting lost. The best part is that signage is not only informative, it can be fun, simple, and a cost effective way to pull your theme together.
Here are a few chalkboard signs Felici Events created for a recent Santa Barbara wedding. The client had old windows they had found, and we chalked it up with chalk paint, and custom made signage for their wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.
The center pane is a replica of the logo on their invitations and save the dates. Branding a wedding is something Felici Events find to be important and creates a unique element.
This entry sign, welcomed guests and let them know they were at the right location. Guests even used it as a photo op as they arrived at the site and got off the trolley.
This sign is the bar menu letting guests know the signature drinks, wines and beers offered at the we ding. Notice their initials on the bottom right square, we copied this from their wedding invitations, save the dates, etc.
The sign below is near and dear to my heart, because the client is now using it as a focal point at their home, and have placed it above their bar. They loved it so much, it has become artwork……
This sign we made to let everyone know of the instagram handle for the wedding. (Felici advice: I do suggest checking a hashtag first to ensure it is what you want to appear for pictures guests tag……) #andernathy
This chalk board is the program for today's Felici Events wedding of #paigeandtedwed . We used the same font as on the invitations and will have it as guests enter the ceremony.
If you are more of a clean line black and white person you can download images online!
or personalize signs to your theme! Whether it is a specific branding or look you are envisioning from playful, rustic or classic, signs are the perfect way to express your personality!
Once in an event, signs help let guests know what is going on and where to find what they are looking for
or a way to share tidbits of trivia, making for personalization....
Whatever the case, have fun with it!
