Any brides that are getting/have gotten married outside where (of course, well meaning) passersby are likely to honk their horns? Our ceremony will be outside on a lawn in front of the ocean, but a road runs in between. I am seriously considering making two giant signs and putting them up for people coming from either direction that say something like “please don’t honk, just wave to say congrats!”
Is this crazy? I doubt they’ll listen anyways… I just want to be able to hear Fiance as we exchange our vows, and want everyone else to hear us too! Anyone ever do or see anything like this?!

In all honesty, unless your signs are designed according to the proper font size and color specs (not to mention word limit) needed for proper visibility for drivers to be able to read them while traveling at the posted rate of speed along a highway, people won’t even be able to read them. And, if they do somehow manage to see the word “honk” they may actually be more inclined to do it before they realize you’re asking them not to do it.
I was married outside at a beautiful venue that sits at the intersection of two roads, one of them a main artery. Although, due to the beautiful foliage, vehicles could not be seen from the ceremony spot, people definitely could hear them. I remember laughing and pausing briefly at one point when I heard some motorcycles going by. However, because the the pastor and my Darling Husband were wearing microphones, I think most of the guests could hear what was being said.

I was married outside, in a city, and had no problems with honking. I wouldn’t use any signs.
