From menus and place cards to guestbooks and favours, there are a ton of creative chalkboard wedding ideas out there. Think chalkboard wedding elements only for those planning vintage, retro or rustic celebrations? Think again! Even if you’re envisioning an elegant soiree, chalk works across the board. The gorgeous menu pictured above is just one timeless way you can incorporate chalkboards in your chic celebration.
Chalkboards can be used in a variety of places: as table numbers at reception tables, as signs to direct your guests, as informative boards on a dessert table or even as props that your guests can hold up in your photo booth. As far as guestbooks go, why not leave a chalkboard wine bottle on each table for your friends and family to sign? You can even take things a step further and add chalky touches to your wedding favours–give your guests mini chalkboards with a box of chalk, something they will be able to use more than once and can hold onto as a keepsake from your special day. Another creative chalkboard wedding idea? Include this fun medium into your candles, glasses and mugs–which can be personalized with your guests’ names and can double as favours that double as place cards.
