I think I will be going with corrugated plastic. You know, the ones that many real estate agents use (at least in this area). I will be buying a 6ft by 8ft sheet of it locally for only $20, then cutting and painting on it myself. I just have to figure our what I will be affixing them too, but will def be something that sticks in the ground.

Can you not do anything at all in th ground? I saw a cute idea of using golf tees and tying ballonns to them so they look like they’re stuck to the ground. Maybe printed balloons?

You can make your own easily. Two pieces of plywood with a piano hinge at the top.

Home Depot or Lowe’s will cut the wood to size for you. They also sell the piano hinge.

Paint it white and stencil your sign in black. Or paint it with chalkboard paint and stencil the wording in white.

You could even do the sign double sided so they saw a Welcome message when they arrive and a Thank-you when they leave.

@goodgirl101:  Hmm I would check the Weddingbee classifieds section and some other used wedding websites to see if any brides are re-selling their wooden signs. The downside is if the signs are heavy, shipping could be expensive. 

Do you live near an Ikea? I’ve seen really cheap chalkboard easels there.

Are you getting married outdoors? You could also tie a sign to a tree..
