How Big Should Your Event Marquee Letters Be?

If you're having a wedding or special event where you want to have the ever-popular marquee letters, how big do you need them to be?

It really depends on how soon you want your guests to see - and read - them!

Are you trying to make a massive visual impact the second they arrive at the venue?

Are you using marquee letters for photo opportunities?

Are you placing marquee letters on a welcome table, the lolly buffet, on the bar or on the bridal table? Then they can be smaller so they don't hide you, or the objects you're showcasing.

Here's a quick guide:

25cm high marquee letters can be read from 24-106 metres away - these are best for decorating your wedding table to provide visibility
50cm high marquee letters can be read from 60-240 metres away - these may be best for a bar or food station
1.2m high marquee letters can be read from 145-610 metres away - but they will be waist-height so they may be best up on a podium
1.5m high marquee letters can be read from 180-760 metres (that's around half a kilometre) away - perfect for a showstopping impact on arrival
