One of our favorite ways to incorporate a neon sign on wedding day is to create a funky, rad backdrop! This can be used as the ceremony backdrop where you say your vows and you can then flip it into a fun photobooth area for your guests! Throw in some awesome florals and you’ve got decor that makes a big statement!

Our two favorite elements of the evening were our Bar Menu, which had a cocktail named after our dog, Carl (who was also our ring bearer) and then our “till death do us part” sign. We kept the sign and it’s going up in our living room!
Remember what we said about keeping your neon sign and showing it off in your home after the wedding day?? We’re all for wedding decor that can be enjoyed for years to come!
When couples think neon, they often assume it has to be loud, bright and colorful. However, you also have the option to go sleek, modern and minimal too! Take the soft white sign above. It’s the perfect accent to a unique bridal portrait session or a monochromatic, minimalist wedding that’s looking for something a bit different.
Highlight the Wedding Theme
Our wedding theme was loosely based off of our first dance song, “This Must Be the Place.” It has always been a significant song to both of us for years and we knew that we wanted to incorporate it somehow into the designed elements.
Neon wedding signs are often used as well, signs. You can use them to direct your guests or highlight the entrance to a venue space. We love the idea though to show off the theme of your wedding when guests first walk in! If there’s something symbolic or important to you both as a couple, make it a focal point of the night. Include your guests and let them know it’s something really special!
Your Name in Lights
Show off that new name! This is a super popular neon sign idea and we think it’s the cutest! Is there anyone out there who’s always wanted their name in lights?? Now is your chance!
Hearts on Fire

Get creative by using fun neon shapes in your decor! We love this giant heart from the bridal portrait session above! We’ve also seen couples use small hearts, stars, moons, animals or other graphic shapes to show off their personalities and add some unexpected fun into the reception decor.
Setting the Mood
