Hi, lovelies! Happy, happy Friday! Emma here. A few years ago, chalkboards started sneaking into ceremony and reception decor across the globe. Before we knew it, engaged couples and wedding planners were all, ‘chalkboard all of the things!’, and chalkboard labels, bridesmaid chalkboard signs, table numbers, signs, menus, and chalkboard props for engagement photos became the norm. And, while it seemed like just a trend (you know, like mason jars), chalkboards stuck around! For good! Today, we’re bringing you a fresh supply of chalkboard wedding ideas that we know you’ll love. There are twenty-one handpicked finds in all that may surprise you, since they’re totally chic and elegant enough for your wedding day. We’ve found chair signs, cocktail napkins, favors, a welcome sign, save the date, invitation, photo booth backdrop, and much more… even a chalkboard wedding cake! (It’s quite amazing, to be perfectly honest.) So, if you’re hoping to be inspired today, you’ve come to the right place… let’s get started, shall we?

We love the trend and today we’re sharing some of our favorite (read: most creative) wedding hoop ideas. Once we started our search for hoop art finds, we couldn’t help but share a plethora of them.

I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?

We spotted these gorgeous (+ easy to do!) DIY glitter candle holders via Weddingstar and couldn’t wait to share them with you. If you need a fun + easy DIY to do this weekend, this is it! I’ve seen glitter candle holders done before, but none have resulted in such a gorgeous design worthy of your wedding centerpiece. With just a few simple supplies (you know, a little spray-on adhesive, gold glitter, and a few tealight luminaries) you can steal this look for your wedding centerpieces. I love the idea of pairing a trio of these glittery candle holders with a vase of fresh flowers. At night, they’ll look stunning with specks of gold glitter and romantic candlelight shining through.
