21 Inspiring Chalkboard Wedding Ideas

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?

How to Style Bridesmaids: Blue

The first step to styling bridesmaids? Pick the perfect dress!

1. The Dress

For this inspiration board, we’ve selected a short bridesmaid dress in navy blue by Columbia. We love this dress because it it short (perfect for spring or summer weddings), wicks away sweat (especially perfect for humid weddings), and it is re-wearable. We also like the feminine sash tie and neckline detail.

2. Chevron Clutch Purse

We paired the navy blue dress with a statement clutch in a fun, colorful pattern: chevron! This clutch purse by Good Marvin will hold all of her essentials.

3. Blue Earrings

We spotted these beautiful earrings at Rustic Gem Jewelry. They’re lovely yet simple, which means they’ll become her favorite everyday earrings after the big day.

4. Studded Flip Flop

Since the bridesmaid dress is more casual, we wanted to keep with the look for footwear. We spotted these leather flip flops with white detail by American Eagle Outfitters and they’re perfect.

5. Blue Feather Hair Accessory

And, last but not least, we wanted to add a hair accessory to pull the look together. We spotted this feather hair accessory at Jewelsalem.
