Events come in all shapes and sizes. You need to be able to create the perfect event whether it be an intimate soiree for 20 of your nearest and dearest or a large wedding with 600 guests.

You will have so many elements which

need to be coordinated carefully to ensure

the success of your event. The size of your event will often dictate the size of inclusions. The venue will sometimes dictate the scale of items included in the styling. These are important considerations to take into account or your overall look may fall a little flat.

When we talk of scale think about things like the below

  • The number and size of tables to "fill" the venue so as not to leave voids or indeed to overcrowd the space

  • The size of Backdrops and styling elements. In a larger event these items need to be large so they stand out. Think about adding elements like balloons or floral arrangements to make their impact more powerful.

  • Height is another aspect to incorporate. This can add dramatic scale and proportion to an event space. Think about large floral installations or tall tables with tall decorative points of interest.

  • Don't forget to look up! Ceiling installations can create amazing visual points of interest and create grandeur. A little chandelier may be pretty but add them en mass and in great style and you transform the ordinary into the amazing

  • Signage is another area where you can add interest with scale and size. A small sign on an easel may get lost in a large gathering or space. Think about adding multiple signs and shapes and incorporate other decorative additions to make your signs a visual feast.

  • If your event is smaller you could easily just have have a printed sign on an easel for example but look at the size of the sign and the size of the easel. Is it at eye height or lower? Is the sign in scale with the easel? These are important considerations so the overall look is pleasing to the eye. Add some floral detail to again make your sign stand out. This can be a small spray or indeed a massive installation complimenting your event signage.

  • When considering a designer for your signage look through their portfolio. Explore the fonts and scale in comparison to the signage. Dare to allow them to create drama with placement and scale. Negative space can be as powerful in design as filling the space with text. Opt for

  • Another great way to attract guests interest is to hang your signage. You can incorporate a hanging stand or even suspend your signage from the ceiling where the venue permits. Add a touch of colour to make your signage stand out. A good graphic designer will be able design a sign which matches your event theme and styling and colour pallet.

Ensure your event will be talked about for its wow factor by considering size and scale in the design and planning stages.

You have an event coming up and there's a list a mile long to do. One of those on your list may be signage... do you really need it? What sort of signage do you need? Lets explore this further

Whilst your event signage may serve a specific purpose, such as directional or instructional, it should also be considered as major styling opportunity as well. Making your sign display a point of interest and decorating it beautifully makes huge visual impact. It sets the scene for what is to come next at your event. Dress the staging with balloons or flowers or both! Think about what you can add to the display to make it eye catching. Hanging it on a large stand allows florals to be easily added. Think about the space around the sign and see if you can incorporate elements like candles or lanterns, plinths or tables. These elements will all help showcase your fabulous sign and drawn your guests to admire as well as create fabulous photo opportunities.


Some signs will serve the purpose of explanation and intentions. If you choose to have an unplugged wedding for example, a clear sign stating your wishes will save embarrassment or awkward situations. Should your event be in a park, good signage will direct your guests as to the best way to make their way to designated areas. If you wish guests to park in a specific area, having directional signs will ease the process of arrival and departure. Order of event signs will alleviate guests wondering "what time does everything happen" Knowing the happy couple will have a sparkler send off at 11.30pm will ensure guests don't miss the opportunity to join in.

A Wedding Welcome sign not only announces your event to your guests but draws them in and creates a feeling of belonging. A seating plan paves the way for a smooth transition for guests as they look for their seat in an orderly fashion. Wishing well signs indicate where to leave gifts so guests arent awkwardly carrying them around all night.

If you are unsure of exactly what signs you need for your next event, do a visual walk through of guests arriving in your head. If you were a ,what questions would you be asking? Is there an announcement of your event name? Is it clear where to go, what to do and areas clearly marked so guests can flow through and ensure they enjoy all the elements of your event. Here are some samples of signage you may consider

  • Welcome signs

  • Directional signs

  • Seating Plans

  • Order of Event signs

  • Wishing Well sign

  • Guest book sign

  • Toilet signs

  • Table numbers

  • Guest names

  • Menus

  • Event name ie Baby Shower, Kitchen Tea


The event signage you choose should match with your theme, location and event type. There is no point having an elaborate glass sign for a park based picnic with lots of children for example. Similarly if you have a wedding in a 5 star hotel with chandeliers and a ceiling dripping with florals then a wooden sign probably isnt going to fit in. There are many options for signage that suit all possible scenarios, so have a look around at what vendors offer. If you arent sure what you want, vendors will be only to happy to make some suggestions and offer options to suit both the occasion and your budget.
