Make your signature mat a success
The popular perspective on a successful wedding signature mat is one
that has most of your guests signing it and writing wishes to the bride
& groom. There can be some key elements to making this happen. When
guests arrive at a wedding ceremony, they're often focused on getting
seated. Because of this, it is possible to have fewer signatures or well-wishes
written. We recommend focusing on the reception. That's not to say "don't"
have it at the ceremony, but definitely also have it moved to the reception
as well. At the reception, guests have more time and may write more extensive
wishes to you. It's also recommended that it's in a high-traffic area
so guests have the opportunity to sign it when they arrive or when they
leave. Having your band or DJ make a couple reminder announcements during
the reception can also help you build a successful wedding signature mat.
