5 Great Ways To Use Chalkboard At Your Wedding

Versatile, customizable and with that touch of DIY charm we love, it’s no wonder chalkboards are fast becoming a wedding staple. Whether you’re looking for plain and precise or something a little more ornate, chalkboards now come in a variety of shapes and sizes to match the rest of your wedding day design. Here are some of our favorite ways to use chalkboard at your wedding.

Help them find the way

Guide your guests to their seats with a personalized seating chart, or set out a series of adorable chalkboard bud vases as escort cards that can double as favors (you can also place these little cuties at each seat as a place marker). Help guests find the way to your ceremony or reception (or even your photo booth!), with a personalized chalkboard directional sign – and if chalkboard’s not your style, you can view all the personalized options right here.

Sweetheart seating

Add your own artistic touch to your chairs with this adorable chalkboard bunting banner. It’s just the right size to drape across two chairs which is all you need for you and your new Mr. or Mrs.

Signs of all kinds

Signs are an often overlooked part of wedding day decor that can really add personality. Large or small, use them to welcome guests at the reception, display your drink menu or write your own unique message. Smaller signs work great as table numbers, set out by your favor or drink display, or you can add them to other features of your wedding that are unique to you.

Label it
