I want to have three different pictures done the day of our wedding with signs in them. I think they are super cute and make the picture really pop!
I want a picture with a “thank-you” sign
I want another picture with a “better together” sign (it’s our wedding song)
and finally I want one with the wedding party holding
“and then they lived happily ever after” signs (one work per sign)
my question is I have no idea how to make these.
Has anybody here done this for their wedding or do they know how to make these signs? I want them to look nice in the pictures.
All suggestions and advice will be appreciated 🙂

@March1stBride: what type of sign do you want?
The little triangle banners are probably easiest and I think they’re pretty cute.

@March1stBride: I’m not crafty either. So, I used Vista Print! I thought the quality was decent enough, and they always have 50% off coupons floating around. Below are two that I made. You can get posters in several sizes, and they have a wide variety of styles…

I just recently made some signs..
Now, I hand painted mine so they don’t look SUPER awesome, but I think they will photograph okay.
There are places you can purchase custom stencils if you aren’t good with freehand, of if you have access to one – print out the words on clear vellum and use a projector to to blow it up and paint that way.

@Tess63110: I like those a lot! I used vistaprint for my wedding invites and I really liked them. You’re so right my inbox is flooded with those 50% off coupons constantly!
@MsGinkgo: I like the little triangle ones for the Thank You sign (they are super cute and a little whimsical) but I don’t think it would work for the other two.

@jenilynevette: Those look great!! I would have never guessed they were not professional!
I think stensils will be a must…my free hand would look terrible!

Design your sign on yor computer.
Have it printed at Kinko’s, Staples etc if you need it larger than yur home printer can manage.
Buy foamcore at Staples.
Use spray adhesive to adhere your printed wording to the foamcore.
Use an exacto knife to cut the fomcore sign to the shape you want.
You can glue a wooden paint stir stick on the back to use as a handle.

@julies1949: Thank you for the step by step instructions!
Exactly what I needed! I think I can manage to do that (hopefully anyway lol)

I attempt to be crafty, and it often fails. LOL This sign took me about 3 hours, however, I am really happy with how it turned out. I got the chalk and board at Staples, found a picture of it on Pinterest and went for it.

@March1stBride: If you want wooden signs, you can either try to find some cool old wood (old crates, etc at a thrift or antique store) or “age” regualar two-by-fours by banging them and staining them. Then just find a font you like and either print it out to copy, or just eyeball it. I’m really not very crafty or artistic, but I went crazy on sign making by just using a paintbrush and craft paint to copy the “bombshell” font onto old barnwood. Once you get going, it’s easy!
