Weddings take hours, days, and months of planning, so sometimes decor can seem like just another item on the to-do list. There are tons of choices for colors, tablecloths, centerpieces, florals, and more. Because there’s so much to plan and do, signage or lighting might not immediately come to mind when thinking about your big day.
We’re here to say that signage can be an essential part of your wedding day’s overall vibe and decorations. Lighting also has a big part to play. Specifically, neon signs have been trending as fun and functional wedding decor in recent years. Personalized neon signs are perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions for a few reasons.
Read through to explore five different ways that neon signs can be incorporated into your big day. We think these are memorable and trendy ways to elevate your venue and add a touch of interest to your wedding’s decor.
Make a backdrop for photos
Neon signs make perfect backdrops for your guests to take photos. Edgy, sweet, and trendy, a bright neon sign would be a great backdrop next to where the ceremony takes place or at the reception. Encourage guests to have fun and take some memorable photos. You should get in on the fun, too! You’ll have a blast getting the photos back and remembering your big day.
This can get even more perfect if you customize your sign with Radikal Neon® to reflect your new family name or both of your first names, together. Guests will love taking pictures that celebrate your love and posting them on social media.
Set the mood for the reception
While a backdrop for photos is great for both the ceremony or the reception, we think a neon sign will really stand out as decor at the reception venue. The choices of color and the light emanating from the sign will set a great mood for your wedding’s reception. Easily inject some energy into the party.
Hot pink versus a bright white versus a golden hue – there are so many possibilities and combinations to choose from. This is a good way to elevate your decor and give the right vibe, whether that be a romantic, kitschy, or a nightlife type of energy.
Highlight a quote that has meaning to you
If you’re using a neon sign at any point in your wedding day, you should customize it to display a quote you both love. This could be song lyrics, from a poem, or a little joke you two have come to associate with your relationship. Your guests will find this endearing, and it’s a wonderful way to weave a little piece of your love into the venue’s decorations.
These quotes make great photo backdrops, but they’ll also make good conversation pieces. Feel free to tell guests why you chose this quote and why it’s important to you both.
Organize your guests’ experience
Most people view neon signs as aesthetically pleasing and don’t see the potential they have as bright and bold signage. You can easily use neon signs to help organize your guests’ experiences and organize the venue. Tell your guests where to go, highlight which room is for your ceremony, and separate different parts of the venue.
You can place a cute sign to tell guests where the bar is, highlight the guestbook and where to sign it, and much more. Using these signs is a beautiful way to make it easy for your guests to know where to go and understand the order and place of events.
Bring your decor together
The best part of these neon signs is that they’re completely customizable and can be created to suit your personal tastes. Because of this, they can bring everything together at your venue and help solidify your decor scheme. From color to the shapes you choose for your sign, this is a bold way to stick with your wedding’s theme or keep everything uniform.
If you want to make things relaxing as the night goes on, no worries! Neon signs can easily be made dimmable and give an “end-of-the-night” vibe, making guests comfortable as the hour grows late.
