Wedding signs play a crucial role in guiding guests, setting the tone, and enhancing the overall aesthetic of the day. Knowing the right sizes for various wedding signs will help you create the perfect wedding sign decor.

Wedding Welcome Sign Sizes

As the guests arrive on your wedding day, a well-placed wedding welcome sign with both of your names and the wedding date sets the tone for the event. Opt for a welcome sign in a size of around 24x36 inches (60x90 cm) or larger for outdoor venues so that it is easily visible from a distance. These are also suitable dimensions for direction signs. Indoor wedding welcome signs can be slightly smaller; a size of 18x24 inches (45x60 cm) is ideal.

Wedding Ceremony Signs

Ensure that your guests are well-informed about the ceremony proceedings with a clear and legible program sign. Aim for a size of approximately 18x24 inches (45x60 cm) to allow guests to read the details without crowding around the sign.

Opt for a size of around 11x17 inches (28x43 cm) for bar menu signs to display a concise list of available drinks. Consider incorporating eye-catching fonts and decorative elements that match your wedding colors and theme.
