"The Sign": Not Just a 90's Megahit By a Swedish Pop Group With Possible Ulterior Motives

...it's also a very important part of your wedding decor. And on this, the one-year anniversary of my own nuptials, I wanted to show off some of the signage from our wedding. Let's get personal, shall we?

Without signs, your guests may feel a little lost. Our venue - The 1909 in Topanga, CA - was both incredibly beautiful and expansive. Partygoers were guided through a labyrinth of locations within the venue using handmade signage that Hubby and I created with the help of some talented guests.

I can see it in your eyes, I can see it in your smile. And I want so much to tell you... that the ceremony is down these stairs.

My love of music, puns, and musical puns were the creative force behind most of the signage. And as for the actual how-to? That part was simple. A white paint pen (water-based) purchased at Michael's - for 40% off obviously - became my best friend. I used that paint pen on EVERYTHING:

  • Tolsby IKEA frames, spray painted gold (a wedding's best friend)
  • Arrow chalkboard sign, also purchased at Michael's
  • Stand-up chalkboard sign, purchased on Craigslist
