Stir up schoolhouse nostalgia in your guests with the latest trend in wedding stationery—gorgeous typography on a blackboard backdrop. Chalkboard-style invitations set an embellished DIY theme for your rustic wedding from the very moment your guests open the envelope. This whimsical and romantic style evokes femininity and charm with its vintage aesthetic.
On the big day, complement your fun invitations with additional chalkboard details such as ceremony signage, seating charts, table numbers, wine-bottle labels, place cards or romantically scrawled menu boards. Wipe your open bar’s slate clean, replacing daily drink specials with your customized cocktail description in calligraphed white script.
To achieve this whimsical DIY effect, leave the sidewalk chalk for your flower girl and pick up a liquid chalk marker or pen set (available at most craft and hardware stores) in your wedding colors for a clean, personalized look on your sweetheart table signs and seating charts. Be sure to clean the board thoroughly with a wet towel (not a paper product) before lightly demarcating the length and width through the center of your work space to ensure a symmetrical design. Use printouts of your wedding fonts or stencils as a visual guide, then wipe away any mistakes and guide lines with a wet Q-tip to polish the old-school look.
