My sister got married recently, and her in-laws created the perfect wedding gift for her and her husband. It was sweet, funny, and wonderfully personalized. Because they love watching The Simpsons, his family gave them a large framed picture of the two of them as Simpsons characters.
The picture included custom details like their favorite book on a table and a special clock they have that’s shaped like a wooden airplane rotor.
Most married couples like to have an object in their home to commemorate their wedding day. There are many designs to choose from, and some people are very particular about what they hang on their walls.
If you’re going to give a sign or wall decor as a wedding gift, it’s got to be something special. Here are some ideas for wedding signs to kick start your search for that perfect gift!
Personalized Last Name Wooden Sign
This personalized last name wooden sign is a lovely way to commemorate the newlyweds in your life. It’s made from solid pine with a two-tone stain finish for a rustic log cabin look.
Get this sign personalized with the names of the happy couple and their wedding date. It’s also fun that the sign says, “established 2001.”
Each sign is handmade to fit your order and because the grain of the wood varies with each design, no two pieces are the same.
To protect it from the elements, the sign is treated with an indoor/outdoor sealer. We would suggest that if you’re placing it outside, it’s probably best on a porch with some shelter.
Yankario Rustic Farmhouse Room Decor
Some people love sweet little signs that say, “Together forever” and “True love.” Other people gag a little bit when they see stuff like that. Not everybody’s a “Live, laugh, love” person.
This Yankario rustic farmhouse-style sign is the perfect gift for couples with an irreverent sense of humor. It’s an excellent choice if you want a couple and their guests to laugh when they see your gift.
Sleepover with Your Favorite Weirdo Sign
This funny sign is the perfect decor for a master bedroom. Give the happy couple a sign with a simple calligraphy design that says, “Marriage: An endless sleepover with your favorite weirdo.”
Not as raunchy as the previous pick, but just as funny. It’s also kind of sweet. This piece of wall decor has a simple design that goes well with almost any kind of room.
Lover’s Crossroads Personalized Print
Another piece of custom wedding art, this one is great for a couple whose home has a minimalist design with neutral colors. This wall decor is a black-and-white photo print of a signpost with intersecting street signs.
It looks like the kind of thing that would be in a photography display at a gallery. You can customize the design with the couple’s names on the street signs for a personal twist. This is where Fred Street meets Erika Avenue!
Rustic Wedding Date Sign
This customizable sign is an excellent, simple design to commemorate the happy couple’s wedding date. It’s also helpful if they tend to forget what day their anniversary is!
The design is short and sweet: your wedding date is displayed vertically in a beautiful wooden frame. The rustic wedding date sign is a beautiful addition to a home where less is more.
For further customization, you can choose your favorite wood for the frame. Options include golden oak, walnut, briarsmoke, or kona.
Honey Dew Gifts “Save Water” Sign
“Save water. Shower together.” We all know someone who’s into that kind of thing. They might also care about the environment. That’s not a deal-breaker, though.
This sign has a chalkboard design with deceptively cute calligraphy. It’s a hilarious addition to the master bathroom.
Personalized Wedding Gift Last Name Sign
Give that special couple a sign that isn’t just a piece of wood on the wall. The design for this wall decor is a circle with the first letter of your last name in the middle, with smaller designs for the full last name and the anniversary year.
These outdoor metal signs are professionally cut from 18 gauge steel and given a powder coat for durability. The newlyweds can hang it on their front door to welcome visitors to their home.
Kingdom Quality Marriage Prayer
If the bride and groom are the prayerful types, give them a sign that blesses their home. This Kingdom Quality marriage prayer wall decor is perfect for a tranquil home.
The text on the sign is beautifully painted on real wood background with a rustic wooden frame. Put it on the mantelpiece, hang it on a wall, or keep it on a bedside table.
Dadaly Decor “Speak Friend and Enter” Plaque
“Speak Friend and Enter.” If your bride and groom plan on making their vows in Elvish, this might be a fitting gift for them.
It’s made of weatherproof plastic to withstand the elements, so the couple can hang it on their door in homage to the Doors of Durin in The Lord of the Rings.
The Speak Friend and Enter plaque from Dadaly Decor is sure to please the fantasy nerds in your life. If you’re not into LOTR, you wouldn’t understand.
Gifts for a New Life Photo Holder
“Let the Adventure Begin.” The Gifts for a New Life Photo Holder isn’t just a sign. This cute little wall hanging doubles as a place to display photos and other memorabilia.
The sign itself is wooden with two designs on it. One is some beautiful word art that says, “Let the Adventure Begin.” The other is a piece of string art—a heart made out of cotton threads.
This sign comes with two jute ropes, one for hanging the sign and the other to string across the bottom of the sign. Attach photos and other memories to the sign with eight little wooden clips.
The photo holder sign is a cute and flexible gift that the bride and groom can adapt as they create new memories.
NeonCraftsman Neon Sign
Neon signs are making a comeback. Add some warm cocktail-hour light to the reception with a neon sign celebrating the happy couple.
The Your Surname neon sign is personalized to fit the recipient of the gift. If you’re the maid of honor prepping the venue, a neon sign with the couple’s last name on it will be a wonderful surprise when they walk through the door.
If you’ve browsed online for wedding gifts, you know that there are thousands of listings out there. The number of wedding gift signs can be pretty overwhelming.
Let’s try to narrow down your choices.
Think About the Couple You’re Buying the Sign For
What are the bride and groom like together? Are they a power couple, a comedy duo, cozy homebodies?
Your choice of gift will be very different depending on the couple you’re buying for. There are things you’d give to your best friend that you wouldn’t dream of putting on your colleague’s gift table.
Set a Budget for Yourself
When buying gifts for the people we love, we have a tendency to go overboard. There are tons of intricate, hand-crafted signs made with choice materials out there, but a high price doesn’t necessarily mean high quality.
Decide how much you can afford to spend and stick to it. You’d be surprised how reasonably-priced some quality wedding signs are.
Find a Customizable Product
There are hundreds of artisans on websites like Etsy who create personalized pieces for their customers. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, contact a creator who accepts custom orders.
Customizations can include the materials used, the size, colors, and the text for the sign. Give your gift a personal touch by having something personalized for the newlyweds.
