15 Fun Chalkboard Inspired Wedding Ideas

Décor & Flowers

With ads constantly popping up reminding us school time is upon us, we have chalk on the brain. The ‘chalkboard‘ theme has been a popular feature in weddings for quite some time but there are so many elaborate ways to use this fun medium.

Wedding signage, chalk menus, seating plans, ‘Your Love Story’ boards, and place cards (buy chalk effect place cards from the weddingsonline shop here) all look lovely when penned in chalk. But if you’re of the bridal camp that chalk is too messy and you can barely draw a stick figure never mind an impressive table plan with caricatures to boot, don’t despair – there are lots of cool chalk inspired finds that don’t involve an Art degree or getting your hands dirty. Take these amazing invites with chalk finish from Steph’s Personalised Cards (the perfect way to set a fun, celebratory tone) or these chalk inspired matchbox covers. 

If you’re looking for a creative way to photograph your wedding bands, these fun stick figures look adorable and would make for a beautiful print to hang in your home after the big day. We also love the idea of using a chalk wall as a backdrop for your photobooth (how cute are the veil and top hat illustrations below) where your guests scrawl messages and pose. Guests will also adore this sweet mason jar idea – each guest can write their name on one of the little chalkboard hearts so they can keep tabs on their drink for the entire wedding celebrations – we can guarantee they’ll be smuggled in to handbags at the end of the night too! Or if you want to get the look without all the elbow grease – just pop over to the weddingsonline shop where you can purchase chalkboard stickers.

Finally, if you’re a fan of embroidery hoops, give them a modern twist with a splash of chalk paint like the sweet ‘Thank You’ idea below. For those that don’t have the steadiest hands, you can also pick up embroidery hoops on Etsy that look like they’ve been lovingly hand crafted but all the hard work has been done for you.
