Bold colours and witty sayings. We have come to associate neon signage with words like “open” and “please enter,” strewn high above the entrance to everyday cafés and news agencies. This ordinary context just might be what gives this feature such a charming edge when used as wedding decor. Besides having an overt street-style quality, neon signs can be coordinated with other geometric accents to create an overall look that’s luxe and modern. There is now a growing market for custom wedding signage, meaning you can pretty much order just about any phrase you desire. You can opt to have your names up in lights, or stick with a quirky saying that’s timeless and speaks to your relationship. Either way, these neon signs make for a great ceremony backdrop, especially when the alternative lighting is kept fairly dim. This creates a truly majestic and intimate atmosphere for the exchange of vows or for the couple’s first dance. Hang up the signage among a bed of flowers or foliage for a touch of sophistication or leave it as a stand alone statement that guests will surely see as a major photo opportunity.
If you’re planning your wedding and look to Instagram for inspiration, no doubt these signs will be popping up all over your feed. We’ve put together a list of several Australian vendors that specialise in making, selling and renting out neon signs for weddings and associated events.
Based in Perth, Electric Love has a comprehensive range of neon signs that are perfectly suited to wedding celebrations. Some of the most popular phrases include “Mr & Mrs,” “That’s Amore” and “We Found Love,” all written in a beautiful, cursive font.
