Do you love the look of wedding chalkboard signs but need fresh inspiration? You’ve come to the right place! Using a chalkboard sign at your wedding is an easy and inexpensive way to add whimsical decor to your ceremony or reception. You can use a chalkboard to mark the entrance way of your beach wedding (so people know they’re in the right place) or as a marker on a long driveway so guests know they’re almost there. A chalkboard can also be used as a seating chart, as a sign for wedding favors, bar menu, or even a schedule of events. I love the use of a chalkboard as an action-packed invite for guests: tell them to sit anywhere (no seating chart), ask them to strike a pose in your photo booth, or as a way to introduce your Instagram hashtag for photo sharing. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up twenty-five wedding chalkboard signs for your big day. Plus, we’re sharing a helpful tip on how to make your wedding chalkboard really POP. Also, you can shop pretty signage here in our handmade Marketplace. Enjoy!

A Helpful Tip

To make your chalkboard pop, use colorful chalk markers. Regular chalk is okay, but it’s really hard to make clean lines and drawings. Plus, it is too easy to wipe away (even if you barely rub it). To keep your chalkboard looking great all night long, we recommend using Chalk This Way because we’ve tried them ourselves and they work great! Plus, they’re easy to use… it’s just like using a pen. Oh and it makes your work look professional, even if you’re just a chalk drawing beginner… like me!

Okay, on to the inspiration!

His and Hers Wood Wedding Ring Box >> POTD

Check out this his and hers wood wedding ring box. These wooden ring boxes are awesome! They’re handcrafted by Will from End Grain Wood Shoppe. Will says, “This pair of wedding ring bearer pillow boxes would be a perfect addition to a woodland wedding. Each wood ring box has been cut from a branch of Sierra Nevada reclaimed wood. The wood boxes have been oiled to enhance their natural beauty. Then His and Hers have been wood branded into the top of the wedding ring boxes.” What do you think about this photo of the day?

One of the easiest ways to pull in a cozier, more romantic atmosphere at your wedding is with candle light. Easy enough, right? As an example, check out these hand-painted mercury glass votives made from quilted jelly jars. We think they’re just the perfect winter wedding accent to add to centerpieces. They were spotted over at Beach Blues (you may remember their gorgeous milk bottles from our round-up). We love these mercury glass votives paired here with silver painted mason jars. Lovely!

If you’d like to buy a set of votives like these, visit Beach Blues. You’ll also find lovely painted mason jars, too. We talked about quilted mason jars used for a DIY mojito in a jar and I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately. It’s a nice twist from the traditional smooth mason jar, don’t you think?


Halloween Cake in a Jar >> Photo of the Day

The Halloween wedding inspiration continues! If you’re planning a Halloween wedding theme or party, add this tasty dessert idea to the checklist. This Halloween cake in a jar makes a cute favor. We recommend wrapping with orange twine and attaching one of these so guests can grab + take to go.

Halloween Cake in a Jar

This cake is made with moist chocolate cake and pumpkin cake layered with orange buttercream frosting. YUM! A cake in a jar will stay fresh for up to 7 days and can be frozen for up to a month; I know, right? Storing this is a breeze.

Get the cake recipe at HGTV. Enjoy!

And, now that we’ve discussed these yummy, fall-inspired treats, I’m off to find myself a pumpkin spice latte. ;)

Happy Planning!
