Wedding Signs

A bride-to-be contacted me about making one of my “Happily Ever After” signs for her December wedding, and I was happy to oblige.

She wanted it to look really old and rustic, so for the first time I did not use an old cupboard door for this sign.  Instead, I bought a piece of rough plywood that was knotty, uneven, and splinter-y! (I sanded the splinters off.  Or they came off in my fingers.  A little of both happened.)

I also made a “coordinating” sign for a display of family wedding pictures (what a fun idea!)…

…plus one for the hot chocolate table…

…and a couple more for other “stations” at the reception. (I love the big knothole in the middle of the “Gifts” sign.)

It was my first time making a whole wedding collection!

I guess it’s good practice for when my children start getting married off…hopefully that’s a few years away for me!

What a fun idea! I love it. I like the rusticness (okay, not a word but it sounds good) of the signs.

That is one smart bride. Not only does she have awesome signage for her wedding, but keepsakes to hang on her wall "ever after".

I LOVE these!! I am pinning these for the day one or both of my girls get married (they're about to turn 21). My son got married this past summer so it may be awhile but I'll have them on my wedding board if needed!
