If you’re into DIY’s check out how to make this printable marriage banner:
You’ll have to decide what you want your banner to say firstly; we chose "Mr & Mrs" because it's short and simple. Download the banner templates, letters, and signs from any site and print them out on cardstock or chipboard.
Cut the letters out into shape, make sure to make them large enough to be seen from a distance. Also, cut the banner templates along the lines. Use a hole puncher to create holes at the top of the cardstock for the ribbons.
String the cards together and hang up your Mr & Mrs banner. For acute touch, tie a bow with a ribbon that matches the color of your wedding theme.
Burlap banners are cute and rustic. We chose this banner for the bride and groom's table. It will be perfect across the table, especially if your wedding has a bit of a rustic old country theme. For this burlap design we chose to do a “Bride and Groom” lettering and here’s how to do it.
Iron out the burlap because they tend to crease easily. Cut them into rectangles—make them as big as possible—like 15x15 and bigger. Buy enough burlap, so you don't have to worry about running out. You'll need to cut out 13 rectangles with either scissors or rotary cutter.
For the letters, you can either download them online or use a stencil. The letters also must be large enough to fill most of the burlap.
Position the letters properly in the center of the burlap. Move the letters a lit bit down because you’ll need to fold the top of the burlap to make room for strings.
Use tape to hold down the letters if you printed them on cardstock or if you're using a stencil hold down the letters in place. Now paint the letters with a color of your choosing.
Use a brush to repeatedly “stab” the inside of the cut-out letters or stencil. Slowly remove the letters and leave them to dry.
Once the paint is dry, take all 13 letters to your sewing machine—a sewing machine is faster, but if you don't have one, you can hand sew the top. Fold the top of the burlap about 2cm. This casing is for the twine, ribbon, or whatever string you’ve chosen to use.
Now pass your string through the casing and hang up your Bride and Groom banner across the front of the table, you can also write the bride and groom's name if that’s what you prefer. Beautiful!
Several sites specifically make cheap wedding banners that are customizable and here are a few you can try;
Now we've all seen it in movies and probably real life if you've attended a couple of weddings- the moment when the bride and groom drive-off into forever with a banner at the back saying "Just married" or "happily ever after"—it's beautiful. If you want to recreate that glorious moment, here's how;
First print out the letters you’ll be using for the banner. We’ve chosen to do the “Just Married” banner. If you have printed out the letter templates, cut them out with scissors, or cutting mats. If you own a banner punch board, this step should be quite straightforward.
Once the letters have been cut, cut out the banners on cardstock. You’ll be using glue to stick the letter templates to the cardstock banners for more weight and border effect.
Use a hole puncher to make on the top corners of each banner. Use a string or ribbon to string the banners together.
Make bows with ribbons and stick them to the first letter and the last letter. You can play around with the designs and add more decorations.
These congratulation banners can be customized to your choosing, but with the same directions. They're pretty easy to use and cheaper than buying them. If you do choose to buy a banner, the sites we mentioned are really affordable and convenient.
With sites like Etsy, you get thousands and thousands of affordable and unique customizable banners for your special day.
The banners can be hung inside the church or outside, at the back of your getaway car or inside your reception, whichever way have fun with the designs.
