13 ways chalkboards can be used at your wedding reception


Written by Katie Byrne


Easy to decorate yourself and oh-so striking - here's how chalkboards can add a pop of DIY chic to your celebration

 

Welcome your guests to your ceremony with sweet blackboard displays.

There's something about a gorgeously rustic chalk display that's the perfect mix of friendly and inviting.

Add extra sentiment to your celebration...

...By chalking up your favourite quotes onto blackboards. Lovely!

Okay - this chalkboard bunting idea is genius.

It can be rubbed out and reused - meaning mistakes are super-simple to fix. 

Available to buy here.

 

Steady hand? 

Transform a blackboard into your seating chart. The best part about this? Any last-minute changes will be easy-peasy to make!

Use mini blackboards for your place-settings.

Decorate with flowers or ribbons for extra pretty!

Something like this would work perfectly too...

And how about blackboard table numbers, too?

Understated elegance or what?

Available to buy here.

Also! Add a splash of chalkboard paint to glasses and...

...Personalise them with your guests' names. These make wonderful favours!

Make like Iola and Steve...

Picture-perfect

Turn a blackboard into a photobooth backdrop - personalise it with your names, your wedding date and the hashtag you want guests to use when sharing their pics online.

Use chalkboard signs to direct your guests around the various elements of your reception.

 

They're so eye-catching your guests won't be able to miss them!
