Vanessa of The Wedding and Event Creators is back with an inspiring blog for our Words Issue, sharing her tips for out of the box ways to incorporate words into wedding decor.

Planning a wedding allows you to add unique, personal touches to a celebration, and one innovative way to do this is through the creative use of words and typography in the decor. This can include custom neon signs with meaningful quotes or dates, specialty table numbers named after favourite books or travel destinations, and elegantly handwritten calligraphy on invitations and menus. You can also use linen fabric signage to display poems or song lyrics, playful cocktail signs, and a love letter guest book for heartfelt messages from guests. These elements not only enhance the visual appeal of the wedding but also infuse it with your personality and love story, leaving a lasting impression on everyone present.

We hope you enjoy these tips from Vanessa! 

As couples embark on the journey of planning their dream wedding, they often seek unique ways to infuse personal touches into every aspect of the celebration.

One such avenue is through the creative integration of words and typography into the wedding decor.

From heartfelt vows to meaningful quotes, there are endless opportunities to weave language into the fabric of your special day. Let’s explore some out-of-the-box ideas to incorporate words into your wedding decor and add an extra layer of charm and personality to your festivities.

  1. Customized Neon Signs: Illuminate your love with custom neon signs featuring your favorite quotes, initials, or even the date of your wedding,- neon signs add a modern and romantic flair to any setting.
  2. Specialty Names Table Numbers: Inject your personality as a couple into your table numbers by naming them something unique to you- for book-loving couples, why not name your tables after your favorite novels or literary quotes. Or love to travel? Why not name the tables places you have been, or songs you love!
  3. Calligraphy Details: Elevate your stationery suite and signage with the timeless art of calligraphy. Enlist a talented calligrapher to hand-write your invitations, escort cards, and even menu boards with elegant script. The delicate swirls and flourishes will add a touch of romance and sophistication to every aspect of your wedding. Tip/If you have access to a calligrapher- why not ask them to write on something unique like leaves, coasters or another cute keepsake for your guests to have
  4. Linen Word Art Signage: Create a stunning focal point for your ceremony or reception! Linen fabric signage and backdrop pieces are becoming very popular as a way of an alternative to a welcome sign or seating plan or even just to express a special poem or song lyrics important to you as a couple. A word art backdrop adds depth and dimension to your wedding decor while serving as a meaningful expression of your love.
  5. Signature Cocktail Signage: Showcase your signature cocktails with playful signage featuring witty names and descriptions, plus custom cocktail signs or coasters add a touch of whimsy & personalisation to your style.
  6. Love Letter Guest Book: Instead of a traditional guest book, invite your guests to leave messages of love and well wishes on individual cards or parchment paper. Display a vintage mailbox or cards box where guests can deposit their notes, creating a charming keepsake filled with heartfelt words to cherish.

Incorporating words and typography into your wedding decor is a wonderful way to infuse your personality & love story into every aspect of your special day.

Whether you opt for romantic calligraphy details, neon signs, or literary-inspired table numbers, these out-of-the-box ideas are sure to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests. So, dare to get creative!
