Chalkboard Wedding Placement Ideas – Our Huge Guide!

Chalkboard Wedding Placement Ideas

I am still seeing a lot of chalkboard decor in weddings, and I definitely won’t question why.

Chalkboards are simple, cheap, and allow you to be as creative as you want. If you know someone with an artistic flare then you can really design your wedding chalkboard to fit seamlessly with wedding decor.

I was inspired by a chalkboard I saw in Ally and Ian’s Wedding, which we featured on Love and Lavender. In fact, I was so inspired by their ornate chalkboard sign, that I created a DIY ornate chalkboard sign project for my own wedding.

Chalkboard Wedding Placement Ideas

There are many places you can choose to incorporate a chalkboard sign within your big day. With that in mind, I have put together an inspirational collection of where to place chalkboards and also where to buy them online.

Warm Welcome & Activity Timeline

Guests like to be informed. I find it a tad awkward if I have to stand around somewhere and I don’t know what to do next. Give your guests a brief overview of your wedding day along with information on what they can expect.

If you choose not to have ceremony programs, you could use a chalkboard to layout the ceremony order and as a wedding party guide.

Perhaps you already have a beautiful chalkboard sign. If that’s the case, make sure to get a good easel to hold it up.

Some of your guests will be unfamiliar with the layout of your wedding venue. Help them find their way around by putting up a chalkboard directional sign.

Announce the Send off Time

Before the party dies down and guests start saying goodbyes, let them know that the bride and groom aren’t staying around until last call. Instead, the newlyweds will be making a grand departure at a certain time, and want everyone to be involved.
