There are some really great ideas out there for rustic weddings. One that I just had to do myself was the weathered wooden sign. I made a few different signs from a bunch of old wooden planks that were sitting in a friend’s backyard.
Since our wedding was very informal, we didn’t have assigned seating for the ceremony or reception. It had a very backyard picnic feel, which I loved. To let our guests know that there was no assigned seating, we posted a sign at the entrance to the ceremony area. These were just three pieces of wood planks screwed to a wooden post.
We had a ring bearer and a sign holder to announce the bride’s entrance. Our “Here Comes the Bride Sign” was also just two wooden planks. My husband attached them together with two galvanized straps. He also added handles to the back to make it easier to hold.
These were really easy to make and added to the rustic feel of our wedding. Keep it simple with black painted letters or add some color and stenciled designs. Like the choice of wedding themes, the possibilities are endless!
