    A hand-drawn sign is a charming way to let your guests know they’ve come to the right place.

  2. Chalkboard Ceremony Backdrop

    Jess + Nate Studios

    For a creative ceremony backdrop that’s literally a blank slate an oversized chalkboard instead of a more traditional arch. You can also reuse the same backdrop for your photo booth during the reception!

  3. Chalkboard Menu Sign

    Instead of individual menu cards, having a chalkboard displayed by your buffet table or at the entry to your reception let’s guests know what’s for dinner. You’ll save on paper and a pretty design adds easy décor.

  4. Chalkboard Seating Chart

    Khaki Bedford Weddings

    Design your reception seating chart like a bistro menu board, except instead of meals and prices, use your guests’ names and table number. (Hint: Don’t have the best penmanship? Enlist your calligrapher or a friend to write out the names.)

  5. Chalkboard Hashtag Social Sharing Sign

    Want to get the word out about the photo sharing app or hashtag you want guests to use? Write it out loud and clear on a chalkboard and put it in a prominent spot so no one will miss it (like the guest book table!).

  6. Chalkboard Ceremony Program
