With the introduction of the new Shabby Chic era, chalkboards are slowly becoming a new and fashionable statement in both homes and weddings alike to make a stylish but creative and inexpensive personal touch. Especially with weddings, they add to a vintage and classy style, displaying messages to keep all your guests happy and under control while you are busy getting married and enjoying your perfect day.
These are our top 7 favourite chalkboard ideas..
1. Introduce your wedding
So all your guests are slowly forming having a few pre-wedding drinks at the entrance, why don’t you use a chalk board to introduce your wedding? (It also helps to ‘greet’ guests to your wedding without you actually being there!)
2. Cute little messages
Displaying little signs with quirky sayings gives your wedding that something different from the rest, it also gives the guests the wow factor and a good talking point amongst new acquaintances.
3. Flowergirl & Pageboy signs
Give the flower girls and page boys the extra cute factor while walking down the isle to start and end the wedding ceremony. This also gives the opportunity to write a personal message maybe even handwritten from the little people themselves e.g. ‘Here comes mummy’.
4. Seating plan
Why not go for a handwritten seating plan for your wedding breakfast? This is also a great stress free idea if you have any of those last minute RSVPs or alterations to the seating plan – simply rub it out and correct, simple!
5. Table center-pieces / numbering
Using chalk boards for your table numbers and signs gives that vintage alternative look to your wedding while also being a very simple and cost effective touch.
6. Wedding Photos
Any opportunity for a photo! Add a chalkboard to give your photographs that extra message. This is also a lovely idea for thank you cards / photos for your family after the wedding.
7. Entertaining your guests
Keep your guests entertained at the wedding reception by using chalk boards for guest messages or props for your Photo Booth (another opportunity for a photo!). If you can get hold of a big chalk board, why don’t you use one for a giant guest book?
… So with all these ideas, why don’t you have a chalkboard at your wedding? unleash your creativity and provide that personal touch to your big day!
