There’s no getting around it – wedding costs add up. All of the little things – votives, menus, signage, candles – build into a crazy decor monster that you’ll never be able to use again.

Even on the resale sites, wedding signs cost about $15-$50 each. To use one time! I absolutely refused to spend that amount of money on anything so small for my wedding, which is where my DIY day came in. I decided to shop around and buy blank wood surfaces on which I could stencil my custom signage instead.

These craft wood surfaces were so cheap at Michael’s – no more than $6 each!

For a wedding of our size (way bigger than we expected) at a venue like ours (essentially, a gigantic field), it’s definitely necessary to have signage to show people where to go.

Supplies:
– Craft Wood Signs (I got mine at Michael’s)
– Small letter stencils (I used Martha Stewart’s Typewriter Font)
– Large Letter Stencils (got mine at Lowe’s)
– Stencil Dauber Set (Also Martha’s)
– Craft Paint
