Juxtaposition: noun the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.

When it comes to design in general, I think most would agree that the correct dose of juxtaposition can be a stunning, aesthetically pleasing affect if done right! Still unsure just what this words means? Think sparkle and hay, denim and diamonds, cowgirl boots with a wedding dress, brick wall with flickering candles. It is when two things contrast each other just right that it looks incredible and feels oh so right together!

Steal The Show

Well, a huge trend that is stealing the spotlight at wedding fairs this year is the Neon Sign! And when combined with something the opposite of “your neighborhood bar” (like nature), they can set the mood and be a detail your guests will be talking about for ages and photographing all night long!

There are so many fun, romantic, and even quirky ways to incorporate a neon sign into your big day!

For instance, those photos people will be taking? Your neon sign could highlight your wedding hashtag to your guests, so you are sure to see all those elegant candid pics friends will steal of you all night, not to mention the touching and hilarious videos!

Valuable Information

Having an outdoor wedding in the Texas Hill Country? Do you like the “pick a seat, not a side” approach that informs guest they don’t have assigned seating and are free to choose for themselves? How about a big, bright sign that reads “Sit Anywhere, Y’all!” 

Is your wedding day all Boho-Chic and Charming? A “You are My Favorite Person” sign could be adorable against an ivy wall above a tasseled rug that is lying on the plush grass. Plus, a set up this quaint makes for a perfect photo opportunity for all the happy couples in attendance!

Maybe your reception is an open-air, all-night celebration of good times! How about a “Drinks on Us!” or “Cheers!” neon above the bar? That screams laid back fun, and is welcoming, as well!

Say More With Less

Whether it’s a barn wedding in Gruene, Texas or a Chapel Ceremony in New Braunfels, TX, you can’t go wrong with a simple heart with both of your initials or your new surname up in lights. Bonus: either of these would look ridiculously cute above your sofa or master bed!

Whatever your style, we are loving the endless possibilities of wedding neon signs and think they are definitely worth all the buzz they’re getting!
