8 Must-Have Chalkboard Details For Your Wedding

We’re just going to state the obvious right now: we love chalkboards. But who doesn’t? If you didn’t know this signature Off The Beaten Path Wedding detail, well, be prepared to start loving them just as much as us by the end of this post. Chalkboards can be found at any craft store and personalized to fit almost any wedding theme. Use them as a welcome sign at your guest table, as a “here comes the bride” sign for your ring bearers/flower girls, as a prop for your photo booth, as a table number sign, as a menu… the possibilities are limitless.

2. What an easy way to have chair signs at the head table for the newlyweds. Could also say, “Mr.” and “Mrs.” or “I love him –>” and “<— I love her”. What will yours say?

8. Now this Chalkboard detail takes DIY to a whole new level. What a great photo backdrop this is and a beautiful piece of artwork to have on your wedding day. If you plan on sending thank you cards to your guests, this would be a great image for them to receive from your big day!

Enough chalk talk, now that you’ve had a look at our favorite ideas and uses for chalkboards, you can explore the possibilities for yourself! You can even make your very own chalkboard using chalk paint! We recommend going to chalkink.com for all of your supplies, and there is even a step by step on A Beautiful Mess that shows how to make your own chalk paint (all you really need is a piece of wood!). Be sure to purchase the chalk-paint (this stuff looks amazing on vintage windows!) because regular chalk does not work. Another great place to go next? Etsy. You can start finding labels and frames, and other ways to personalize this chill wedding detail. Happy chalking!
