When you got engaged, sharing the news was probably part of the thrill (cue the engagement-ring selfie, photo shoot, and party!). It's the same situation when you finally tie the knot. After tons of time spent planning and anticipating the big day, broadcasting your new status will feel so good. That's why so many couples choose to decorate with "just married" signs, or other items that make it clear that they're now officially spouses. If you're hoping to celebrate your union that way too, look no further than these ideas.

There's nothing like the classic "just married" sign, which gets affixed to your getaway car. Often, this comes in the form of a banner like this gold one from Nana Party Simplified. Your exit vehicle isn't the only place on which you can reveal that you're newlyweds, though. Another popular option is to use wedding reception signs, like "Mr. and Mrs." chair signs, or table signs displaying your shared last name. Some pairs get even more creative, turning to something like fashion to spread the word! Really, there are countless possibilities, as the following examples go to show. Additionally, you aren't limited to the words "just married"—the ideas ahead feature different phrasings, too.

To really see what's out there in terms of inspiration, click through this gallery. In the mix are signs made of wood, decorated with elegant calligraphy, and even a few personalized with details about the couple. Best of all, many of these ideas would be easy to DIY. From rustic to elegant and cute to creative, you're bound to find something that sparks your interest.
