As you know, one of our favorite things to do is find real, practical (and fun) ideas from Real Weddings to inspire you. After all, anyone can tell you about a good idea, but seeing it put into play is one of the best ways to get inspired. Today we’re talking about bridesmaids with chalkboards, each describing how the bridesmaid met the bride. Simple enough, right? Read on to find out more…
Bridesmaids with Chalkboards Photo Op
This idea turns a simple (+ cheap!) decor item into a totally awe-inspiring photo to capture your big day. You buy a chalkboard (and we’re talking cheap… like $3 a piece) for each bridesmaid. Bring plenty of these — they’re less messy than chalk) and ask each bridesmaid to write how she knows the bride. She can write something like, “7th Grade”, “Groom’s Sister”, “College Roommate”, etc. Then, at some point during the wedding (a great time to do this is in the morning while getting ready) line up and have everyone hold up their chalkboard. Your photographer captures the image and you have a perfect photo for your wedding album.
Cute, right? We love it. The added details – like this one! – will make your handcrafted wedding more memorable + unique.
