We’re always keeping an eye out for new wedding trends, and one we’ve noticed recently is a trend for including neon signs as part of the wedding decor.
Perfect if you’re going for an urban, rustic or industrial style wedding, neon signs add a bit of fun to your big day. Here are some of our tips for incorporating neon signs into your wedding, as well as some other ideas for unique lighting.
Custom Neon Signs for Weddings
If you fancy going all out, why not opt for a completely bespoke and personalised custom neon sign for your wedding? Use your names (or initials) and get a professional to make a sign to suit your budget, style and colour scheme. If you don’t want to have your names, you could also use a short quote that’s meaningful to you.
After the wedding is over, you’ll then have a beautiful and unique piece of art that you can display in your home.
Neon Sign Ideas for Weddings
If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a bespoke neon sign, choose a pre-made design that would work well for your wedding. Things like heart-shaped signs or ones that say “love”, “joy”, “Mr & Mrs” or “just married” would be perfect.
For an even more affordable option, consider hiring a neon sign for the day of the wedding so you can enjoy it as part of your decor, but don’t have to commit to purchasing one.
Neon Sign Wedding Decor
Neon signs can be used in a number of creative ways to add a quirky personal touch to your wedding. Hang them at the end of the aisle during the ceremony, or use them to decorate the dance floor area during the reception.
You could even opt for small battery-powered neon style lights as table decoration centrepieces. Name each table after the shape or word displayed on the neon sign.
Neon Sign Style Wedding Stationery
If an actual neon sign is a bit too much for your wedding but you still want to incorporate it in a more subtle way, why not use a neon sign style font on your wedding stationery? Get a designer to create neon writing for your save the dates, invites, menus or table settings.
Quirky Lighting for Weddings
It’s not just neon signs which are set to be a big wedding trend this year. Keep an eye out for all kinds of quirky lighting to give a unique twist to your wedding day.
We love festoon lighting - especially for outdoor weddings - for a cool vintage vibe. Marquee lettering is also great as you can select individual letters to spell our your initials or words - or even spell out things like BAR or DANCE to act as signs within your venue.
If you like things a little bit more traditional, stick to delicate fairy lights and flickering candles for sophisticated lighting to set the mood perfectly on your big day.
