Once most people get over the excitement of their engagement, the first thing they start to think about is wedding planning—and the associated costs.
Brides- and grooms-to-be can expect to spend anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 on decorations alone, from flowers to lights to wedding signs and banners.
Even if you’re ready to create the perfect atmosphere, taking your vision from an image on your computer to a custom-printed sign can be tricky.
How do you make sure the finished product is everything you wanted it to be?
Let’s take a look at a few quick wedding tips for getting the most out of your custom displays.
Get Venue Measurements on the Front End
There’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you aren’t sure how much space your finished signs or wedding displays will take up in your wedding venue.
If you can, make sure to take measurements of the space where you want your display while you’re visiting, or contact the staff to see if they have measurements on hand.
This can keep you from shelling out money for gorgeous displays that look too large or small!
Work With a High-Quality Image
If you’re hoping to stretch your wedding displays across a table setting or even a pop-up tent, it’s important to make sure you’re working from a high-quality image from the start.
We recommend using large format graphic images from vector files (such as .EPS or .AI file types) if you’re designing the image yourself.
Larger image files (such as .PNG) can be viable options as well.
We also recommend opting for a resolution of at least 150 dpi, especially for any banners where your guests will be coming to look up close.
Pick a Large Font Size
In addition to working with a quality image, don’t forget to consider the size and scale of your font!
If you’re hoping to have your guests read the lettering from afar, especially for larger weddings, shoot for a letter height of 10 inches for every 100 feet of visibility.
When in doubt, opt for a larger font.
Don’t forget to also make sure your font is pretty and readable, like this list of great wedding fonts.
Consider Wind-Friendly Options
Having your wedding or reception in a stunning outdoor setting?
No one likes to imagine their event taking place in less-than-stellar weather conditions, but it’s a good idea to plan for anything.
Display options like flags, outdoor tents, sturdy A-frame signs, and banner options with wind slits are often good choices, especially if you don’t want the weather to damage your display.
Think About Your Event’s Foot Traffic
When planning a wedding, take some time to consider the foot traffic throughout your venue.
Creating a unique welcome sign or a schedule of events where guests are most likely to enter is a great way to make them feel at home.
Don’t forget to also place directional signs that point toward important areas like restrooms, wheelchair ramps, and photo booths!
