Wedding Trends {Chalkboard}

June 12th, 2009 @ 11:50 am by Wiley Valentine

I have been noticing the use of chalkboard in weddings lately, and I have to say I really love it. It’s such a clever element to add to a wedding and perfect for the DIY bride! Menus, seating charts…so many fun options!

I saw a lot of people buying old frames or mirrors on ebay and then painting them with chalkboard paint!

We got ours at a yard sale. In Seattle there’s also a school supply clearing house with lots of salvage boards from schools (ours is an old school chalkboard). We’re going to go and see if we can find another to match.

The chalkboard wordsearch looks ace! I think that’s a wonderfully novel touch to any wedding.

I had seen a chalkboard in a wedding planned by Jung Lee and I loved it. I’m still trying to figure out if we can incorporate in our wedding without it looking completely out of place.

If there are any real people here looking to network, leave me a post.
Oh, and yes I’m a real person LOL.

I sell chalkboard and do custom orders sizes and quantity. Many of my customers order custom sizes unframed and use their own frames. I also sell framed chalkboards. If you’d like to have a look here’s my etsy shop

Have a great day!
Chalk it up!
