Throw pops of fun color into your wedding while also getting guests to share pics on social media. This outdoor, vintage-inspired wedding featured custom mini-chalkboard easels. The sign was a fun DIY craft project that we’re excited to share with ya’ll below!
Do-It-Youself: First, a blank chalkboard sign was purchased from Michael’s. The lettering and outlines were drawn using chalkboard markers. The app was shaded in with regular colored pencils.
Tip #1 | Choosing a Hashtag: WeddingWire provides a free online custom hashtag generator for weddings. Enter info like names, city, wedding date, etc. and the website generates a list of hashtag options. No need to spend weeks thinking about the right one! *Phew*
Tip #2 | Display Multiple Signs: It is a good idea to have a hashtag sign at each bar. This will increase the amount of people who post.
Tip #3 | Prevent Smearing: Spray sign with a matte/gloss sealant to prevent smearing and to preserve as a keepsake. Use it as a home decoration or at an anniversary party in the future!
The classic look of a hand drawn chalkboard sign adds an element of personalized charm. It is a small detail that goes a long way to brand your Big Day!
Elsewhere in the land of wedding signs ↡
You’d be surprised how quickly these these flip flops disappear! Especially if your venue has grass or rough terrain. It’s time us women come to our senses and admit that heels are just plain uncomfortable. And flip flops, well flip flops are glorious. Try 10 pairs for every 100-125 guests.
I found these bright pink flip flops at the Dollar Tree. There are online shops like Printer Studio that sell customized sandals to be printed/monogrammed. Also, Old Navy sometimes has flip flop sales and a decent selection.
Chalkboard signs and favors are a great way to incorporate pops of color and uniqueness to your Big Day. Subtle touches of feminine charm go a long way. If you wanna ditch the DIY for a Buy, we sell pre-made signs on our Etsy ↠ Craft Cakery. Signs are shipped from Los Angeles, California. We would love to hear about your wedding and collaborate on a custom project!
Hope you enjoyed the post! ❥
