I never would have believed that huge gold letter balloons would have taken off as such a big wedding trend. I always thought balloons were only synonymous with birthdays and parties; but since a wedding is one gigantic party, it only makes sense that the balloons of this caliber would be, in fact, gigantic. Take these gold letter balloons for instance…

Gold Letter Balloons

I’m loving them.

And it’s not limited to gold letter balloons alone: silver is just as nice!

Use letter balloons as a makeshift backdrop, photo prop, or tie them around a sign at your reception site. You can spell out anything you’d like, but ‘LOVE’ and ‘XO’ are short + sweet.

You can find these at Supply and Co., where we spotted these photo examples.

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!
