Hudson Valley Weddings – 10 Creative Chalkboard Ideas for Weddings

The chalkboard has taken the world by storm in the past few years. This hit product is now becoming a big thing when it comes to weddings as well. If you want to add cute chalkboard elements to your Hudson Valley wedding, then check out the following 10 ideas.

1. Wedding Invitations

Chalkboard wedding invitations are trending right now. It’s a cute way of inviting your guests to attend your big day. Depending on the type of font you use, you can highlight your wedding theme a lot from rustic to a cowboy-styled wedding as well with the invitation.

2. Follow the Sign

If your wedding ceremony is hard to find, you can add a few chalkboard signs along the route as well as the location to guide your guests to the right spot. This is a simple and fun way to make sure everyone finds his or her spot.

3. The Wedding Timeline

You can also display the timeline of the day’s events with a big chalkboard sign outside the wedding venue. This helps your guests to be at the right place at the right time. 

 4. Table Numbers

Chalkboard signs also make beautiful table numbers. You could just use the sign on its own or even use chalkboard paint to create chalkboard vases or boxes that display both the table number as well as have decorative flowers on display, for instance.

 5. Menu Information

Chalkboard signs would also be a creative way to let your guests know the menu. If you have a buffet table or a food bar, then chalkboard signs are a very good way to highlight what is being offered.


 6. Chalkboard Guestbook

Instead of using a regular guestbook, you could go with a chalkboard guestbook. Have a huge chalkboard wall poster with the date of your wedding printed on it. Your guests can then just sign the wall poster and you’ll have a cute guestbook to hang on your wall.

7.Chalkboard Placemats

You could also opt for chalkboard placemats. You can draw cute messages or images on the placemats and even display the menu, if the food is served on the tables. Chalkboard placemats can also be a great way to entertain the kids.

8. Photo Booth Props

Photo booths are a trendy addition to a wedding ceremony and you should definitely include some chalkboard props to make it all a bit more fun. Small, chalkboard signs that guests can use to create their personal message for you are a fun addition.

 9. Rules for the Dance Floor

Add some more fun to your wedding entertainment with chalkboard rules for the dance floor. This could also be a creative way to highlight some dance move tips.

 10. Cute Wedding Favors

Finally, give your guests a cute wedding favor with a chalkboard sign. For instance, it could be a box of matches, a candle holder, or even a make your own coaster. The possibilities are endless!
