hi, i'm Ali
Photographer, dog mom, daily walker, reader, and wife to a busy maker. I'm the voice you hear and read at Life Outside the Shop.
From new project how-to's and DIY home updates to the ins-and-outs of building a family & multiple businesses, Life Outside the Shop shares what is really looks like to figure it out as you go.
We are SUPER excited about these DIY wedding signs because they are near and dear to our hearts.
Today, we’re sharing the behind the scenes making of our wedding signage but this will work for any occassion. Birthday? Home Decore? Shower? You name it, you can build a sign for that. Check out the video below!
Like we chatted about in our last DIY post, we’ve started doing a bit less of a “look at the camera and tell you what to do” situation for a few reasons.
First, we can barely sit through a video like that (#boring) so why would we expect you to?
Second, it is tough to follow along with a video when you’re trying to make something. Especially if it has to do with power tools, sharp saws, and glue. No thanks.
Lastly, we often do a lot of making it up as we go along. So, after the fact we likely have a few tips and tricks we wish we knew before we started… that you’ll learn BEFORE you start. You’re welcome.

We have to give a few shoutouts to dole out!
First, to our friend Ashley who helped us out with the AMAZING lettering you see. She is so talented and we were lucky to have her on board to personalize our signs once Sam was finished building them.
Next, to our florist at Willow and Rai. She crushed ALL of the bouquets, centerpieces, table decorations, and other floral accents… especially the piece above our welcome sign!
As usual, we’d love to hear and see what you create whether it is a DIY Wedding sign or other sign creation. Make sure to tag Sam Macy Designs and Ali_Macy123 in your creation. Always feel free to shoot us an email if you have any questions!
Thank you for following along!
Sam & Ali
