Neon signs don’t have to comprise solely of words! They can also feature images or symbols. For weddings, you certainly can’t go wrong with brilliant fluoro pink hearts, or glowing red hearts instead. Or perhaps you’d fancy a pair of interlocked rings instead. They’re all guaranteed to add a pop of colour and flair to your special day.
3. Cliche phrases are still a hit

Bring it to life with a neon sign at your wedding!

Many women still plan to change their surname when marrying their significant other, and when this is the case, it’s super cute to see the new name lit up behind the couple! It’s a beautiful reminder about the unity of the two people now united through their wedding, and neon signage is the perfect way to do this.
5. Customisation and personalisation is the future of neon lights

Traditionally neon light signs were set, pre-made and available for purchase. Nowadays, more and more businesses are embracing the importance of customisation for customers. People can now choose almost all aspects of their wedding neon signs – from the text itself to the colours, to the font and the size.
6. The value of affordability, and catering to all types of budgets

Another trend that the neon light business is beginning to embrace is the importance of affordability. There is a vast number of potential customers out there, who love the idea of neon lights at their wedding but simply can’t afford to dish out thousands of dollars. Emerging are more affordable suppliers who can help cater to a broader audience.
7. Initials of the loving couple

As a cheaper alternative to getting your entire names plastered across a wall in neon lights, a subtler approach is to just use your initials! Short and snappy, it’s still a fun way of lighting up the place with something that’s still personalised.
8. The classic Mr & Mrs

You certainly can’t go wrong with the classic Mr & Mrs sign, except rather than being made from wood, plastic or other non-illuminated materials…make a statement with a neon sign version instead! You’re guaranteed to end up with countless Insta-worthy shots with this one, whether you set it up in the photo booth or hang it over the love-birds’ table.

No longer do you just have to choose a single colour for your neon light. Spark some uniqueness and individuality into your wedding sign, by incorporating multiple colours! This makes it extra eye-catching, while also enhancing its vibrancy and fun nature. Particularly well suited for non-traditional weddings, rainbow coloured neon lights are becoming increasingly popular!
10. Non-linear text

Rather than sticking with a line or two of text, consider sparking things up with a unique mix between wordsmith and imagery. Seamlessly combine your favourite phrase or names with a heart, rings, or other wedding symbolism. These types of neon signs are particularly eye-catching, and will result in plenty of admiring looks – we see it happening all the time!
11. Intricate and detailed designs

As technology has advanced particularly in recent years, the techniques and processes behind creating neon signs have improved significantly. It’s now easier than ever to create more detailed, intricate designs. Particularly when using LED flex neon rather than the traditional glass neon, it’s safe and quick to create tight curves and nuanced shapes. This can result in impressive neon wedding signage!
