More stressful - Front of the house, where the guests are arriving? Or back of the house, where everything needs to look and feel perfect before the grand entrance?
It’s probably a tossup. But one of the hottest wedding trends will make life easier for the ushers, family and close friends manning the entry point – signs!
They can be as fancy or rustic as you like. They can be handmade or printed, strung from trees or framed on tables. They can resolve so many basic questions and allow everyone a greater chance to mingle without the burden of finding answers. Used as props, they can even caption your photos … though no promises the cousin that didn’t get invited won’t come up with her own tagline on Facebook.
Through the planning stages, keep a running note on your phone or in your journal about ideas for signs. As you shop at craft stores or antique places, pick up cute frames, chalkboards or cutouts to incorporate. Don’t worry about placement at the wedding or reception just yet – those details can be worked out closer to the big day.
