Wooden Wedding Signs

Wooden Signs

An important element in my rustic country themed wedding.  Aside from using it as signs to show directions ( Reception, Cocktails, etc ) or use it to inject on both humor and inspiration to the ceremony. It also makes the celebration more personal. It makes the guests more welcomed.

The weathering effect adds detail to the rustic scheme.  I was lucky to get some old wood from a friend running a lumber yard business. You can actually just collect scraps of wood from practically anywhere. My fiance had their studio renovated recently so I got to talk him into keeping all the extra wood for me. The problem is that they look too new.

Do it with stickers! 

or an inkjet/laser printer

I’m not the artisan type but i sure have an eye for good craft.
