Chalkboards are an essential decor item for a rustic or vintage wedding. There are so many great details that can be made out of chalkboards and many of these details can be DIY projects. Here are a few of our favorites.
Give your guests a sneak peek of your theme with a chalkboard inspired wedding invitation!
Forget about programs and have one large chalkboard with all of your ceremony details. Don’t forget to include your wedding hash tag for social media sites.
Of course chalkboards are great for directional signs so guests can find their way to the ceremony or reception location.
Chalkboards are also perfect for informational signs. Especially for food or bar stations. If you don’t have the best handwriting there are many local artists that specialize in hand made custom chalkboards!
Small chalkboards are great for little details throughout the wedding like these chalkboard table numbers, place cards or my favorite idea of drink labels!
Which chalkboard idea is your favorite? Will you have chalkboards at your wedding?
An easy way to transform a space is with a beautiful chandelier! Chandeliers add a hint of elegance and opulence to any event, especially weddings. Their is a chandelier perfect for every theme and here are some of our favorite ones and ways to use them at your wedding!
The most popular type of chandelier is made out of crystals. These classic and beautiful chandeliers will never go out of style. They are beautiful for ceremonies and receptions adding a touch of romance.
If you love crystal chandeliers look at getting smaller ones and cluster them together to create a dramatic modern look.
For an ultra modern look, try a colored chandelier like the black one below!
For rustic events, choose a chandelier that fits the theme like this antler chandelier.
If you are crafty, you can even make your own chandelier out of mason jars!
One of my favorite chandeliers is made out of flowers! Although this type of chandelier can be very expensive it is amazingly beautiful!
If you don’t have a budget for a chandelier made out of flowers, try adorning a chandelier with a few flowers to give a similar look.
You can’t have a rustic wedding without mason jars! Mason jars are the perfect way to add a little southern charm to your wedding decor. One of the best things about mason jars is how versatile they are. Of course I love when brides use mason jars as a vase for flowers but you can also use mason jars in so many different and creative ways. Here are some of our favorite ways to use mason jars for your wedding!
My favorite way to use mason jars is for lighting! During the ceremony add votive candles to the jars and hang them from trees, cluster them together for a backdrop or hang them from ceremony chairs to use as pew ends.
For the reception, I love taking mason jars and making chandeliers or lighting fixtures to hang above the guest tables.
You can also use mason jars during the reception on the guest tables to light the arrangements.
A creative way to display photos is to use mason jars. Filled with oil it gives a vintage look to the photographs.
Another great way to use mason jars is to use them as drinking glasses for the reception. I especially like the idea of using the drinking glasses as their place card and favor.
If you want a creative way to display and serve your wedding cake, then you have to use mason jars!
