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?

This handmade Las Vegas wedding was fantastic! Adrian and Andrew met years ago while working as hotel clerks on the Las Vegas Strip. Little did they know they’d fall in love and one day get married. Their wedding was at the TPC Summerlin Country Club which featured a picturesque landscape and exquisite ballroom. Working with Adrian and Andrew to capture their wedding was Meg from Meg Ruth Photo. See the wonderful photos and all the handmade details…

You’re going to love this DIY Chicago wedding! Christina and Barry’s DIY Chicago wedding is full of details and color that will inspire you. More about those details in a minute. Their wedding this past September was held at the Columbus Park Refectory. The location is both elegant and natural that serves as an amazing space for an outdoor wedding. Now about those details: starting with Christina, you’ll find a custom wedding gown, handmade veil, and pretty bouquet. Barry’s penny farthing cufflinks just speak cool as do the groomsmen with sunglasses. An interesting thing you’ll notice is the groom showing off veggies and spices grown by himself that actually made it into the salad. The DIY pops with puffy tissue paper poms under the arbor, detailed place settings with mason jars, vases with fresh cut flowers, rock candy favors, and wooden table numbers. The custom detail that might spark your interest the most is handcrafted sparkler holders for the “sparkler farewell”. Other special details that are sure to catch your eye are the custom wedding cake, candy table, and nifty pins. Their spectacular wedding and all of it’s many details were captured by Luis and Clarissa from I Luv Photo. See their amazing photos and all the DIY after the click…

Keri + Drew’s shabby chic wedding is absolutely stunning. Their Iowa shabby chic wedding has so many beautiful details including mason jars, weathered furniture, and flowery greenery that pops. Keri and Drew went out incorporating the color green into their wedding details from the brides shoes and table centerpieces to their delicious green candy table. Using more than just the color green, one of the most unique and creative ideas Keri and Drew used in their shabby chic wedding was the use of plants as guest favors. Photographing their Iowa wedding was Emily from Emily Crall Photography. Emily fills us in on some of the couple’s wedding day fun.

This backyard wedding is not only beautiful but unique. The bride and groom, Melissa and Brandon were married in Melissa’s Aunt’s backyard in Squaw Valley’s wonderful outdoor scenery. Some of the handmade details and decorations along with the intimate feeling are making us love this wedding video! The photography and videography duo over at Rose Street Studio did a great job capturing this backyard wedding. Thanks Jaime and Jason!
Jaime tells us a little about their wedding day, “Everything was handmade by the couple and contributed by their families including a snowboarder cake topper and cotton candy machine. Prior to the wedding, everyone spent the day working on wedding details and final decorations. The couple danced to Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You” for their first dance which was such a refreshing change! The catering was done by Bella Tahoe Catering and was an all vegan menu including the cake. Very yummy!”
