November 25th, 2013

Today we are excited to share some creative ways to incorporate a popular wedding trend, chalkboards! With the help of Pinterest, we’ve come up with a few different ways to use them:


Chalkboards are a great way to say thank you to all of your guests. In this example, the bride and groom chose to write their personal thank you for all their guests to see on their way out.

Chalkboards are perfect for the DIY bride. They allow you to be as creative or laid back as you want for your wedding. As shown below, the boards were used in a more simple way to direct guests where the ceremony would soon take place or as a personal welcome to arriving guests.

Another fun way to use this trend in your wedding is by displaying it as the timeline of your love story. Some details you may want to include are the dates of the engagement, first kiss, first date, wedding, etc. It’s a nice way for your guests to learn more about the happy couple!

During cocktail hour you may even want to use a smaller chalkboard as a way to showcase any special drinks available. This can be for the newlyweds’ signature drinks or beverage of choice.
