It’s time to lock in your “YMCA” dance as the celebrations begin and wedding season gets into full swing. While guests get to enjoy the final product, wedding planners and families spend months planning the perfect party. Choosing a date, booking a venue, hiring a photographer, designing invitations – the list of decisions goes on and on. Every couple wants their special day to be an experience that they and their guests will never forget. For many couples, that means making their ceremony and reception a one-of-a-kind event, where customization trumps all. That customization is especially important in décor, where wedding signs can take a wedding celebration to the next level. Here are a few of our favorite wedding sign trends.

Social media is here to stay, and many couples love the thought of capturing as much of the day as possible. With an official wedding hashtag, the wedding couple, family and guests can all share their experience through Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Make sure everyone is on the same page by promoting the hashtag with outdoor signs or table tents.
