Signage at wedding

Hi everyone, happy new year!
Just starting to plan the final decor for my wedding in amrch and am having some difficulty coming up with nice signs for the wedding. I need a seating chart, a welcome sign, a bar sign and sign to explain our unique guestbook idea. Anyone have any good suggestions that don't break the bank? I'm looking for simple and elegant.
And how big do you think signs should be?
Thanks so much! This community has already been so helpful

    I've ordered a sign in the past from vistaprint and its great if it rains and its easy to wipe if it gets dirty. If you have access to a cricut machine that would be awesome! there's so many options for that. There are people on facebook that can print things on whatever you give them. Definitely marketplace is a good option, even value village on a good day could have a picture frame you could use or even paint. Printing your own signs help. My sister had a chalk board in a fancy frame and my friend who has really pretty writing wrote her welcome sign!

    Some amazing suggestions on here! I picked up 2 frames from marketplace for free that I am going to use on our "wish you were here" and our sweet table signs

    CHECK YOUR LOCAL MARKETPLACE!!! Also see if there is a local wedding buy and sell group on Facebook! I see so many people selling their signs and what not on there! You may also be able to find someone local who can help you (like Rayanne mentioned with a friend helping with a cricut)

    I've got a cricut myself, so plan on making all our signs. I was able to get a chalkboard sign for free from a friend from their wedding, going to check local thrift stores for cool frames or mirrors, ect.

    Hey! I created mine on Canvas as well. You should also check out Staples copy and print center for printing the posters. I think I might do mine on foam board

    Are you doing anything outdoors? If you're not doing anything outdoors, then foam core will look nicer but if you are, it will be subject to the elements. In that case, I suggest coroplast instead of foam core because it's water proof. March is a pretty wet season. Cost wise, they're both more or less identical.

    Since your signs aren't done in bulk, it'll likely be much cheaper to print them from a local mom and pop printer over Vistaprint. Even if you somehow get a deal, any savings you get from Vistaprint will be offset by the delivery fee.

    I'll be using picture frames for most of our signage. I got a lot of them from the dollar tree. Then I printed off templates for the signs that I made on Canva. I used a paint marker to trace the template on the frame. I'll try to attach a couple examples.Signage at wedding 1

    My friend has a cricut machine and is going to make the vinyl to put on a big mirror I got from marketplace. I have another friend who is going to make my other signs to put in frames. I have a bunch that my mom gave me when she moved so they won't cost too much....

    Thanks! Ya I used Canva for my wedding invites, so I'm hoping I can use it for that too. Never thought about printing them through Vistaprint though. Can you just download the image form Canva? Thanks for your help!

    I’ve looked at Etsy and staples and vista print , I Have 5 signs I’m doing so I’m also trying not to break the bank lol.
    Using Canva to make the visual then putting it on vista print is the cheapest way I have found !
    I also just bought my easels off Michaels with their holiday sale! They were like 14 bucks

    I only made this sign for our ceremony and it cost me around $40 dollars from scratch

    I'm also just going with different picture frames and using word to print off signs for our reception that says bar, please sign our guest book, guests that have passed away etc.
