8 Brilliant Ideas featuring Letter Décor for your Reception

Give me an A, a C, and an E – yes, these are ace!


1. Big and bold!

Sing the feelings you want the world to hear on this beautiful day by making a large – and lettered – statement. Position the where everyone will see them as a constant reminder of what brought you all together.

2. A little bit of humour

There’s no reason why you need to hide your wicked sense of humour on a day which is all about you both! Let your personality shine through and choose something which will have you giggling long after the band has played the last song.

3. Go all modern

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes but if you’re a fan of the clean, minimalistic look, use a darker palette, interlaced with white, or pale, elements to truly create a standout theme.

4. Play with different styles

Font styles, that is. Who said you need to be consistent? If you’re a fan of the eclectic, and off-beat, consider using a mix of lettering sizes and playing with calligraphy. Decide where to place your words of choice and – voila – beautiful and useful!

5. Add a welcome sign

Many couples in Malta opt to place a photo of themselves, usually taken at the pre-wedding photo shoot, at the entrance of the venue to make sure no uninvited guests mistakenly stray in and grab themselves a drink (it has happened before). You can still do that – if you love the visual elements – but include a welcome sign to truly see your guests in with class.

6. Placed against a feature background

The words don’t need to float in air, by themselves, all lonesome. Place them on a pretty feature wall, such as this, to draw attention to the place cards, if you’re having a sit-down wedding, or at the guest-book table. Make it a talking point – just make it fit in with the style of your event.

7. Super glam!

No one ever regretted going for glam – you won’t either! Use letters which light up – a golden glow is softer than a bright fluorescent tone and looks better in photos too. This may work better for evening weddings, but you can always adapt it for a daytime do by opting for metallic coloured lettering.

8. Make it a green, natural one

If you’re having a spring or garden wedding (we’re so jealous!), show your love for the outdoors with these hedges-turned-letters. They are quite a lot of work to pull off, so make sure you speak to your florist and the venue well in advance if this is what you have your heart set on.
