Dallas Wedding Chalkboards from Beautiful Event Rentals
Dallas Wedding Chalkboards Inspiration
While the Dallas wedding chalkboards trend has been around for a few years now, our brides and event designers never stop coming up with unique ways of incorporating them into weddings and events. Chalkboards work well for any wedding style, whether rustic, vintage, or modern. It all depends on how you use them at your event, and the style of lettering you implement. We’ve seen just about everything come through our Dallas wedding chalkboards collection, and today we’re sharing a few of our favorite uses with you.
Welcome: warmly welcome your guests with a personalized chalkboard featuring the couple’s names and the date. We also love chalkboard signs that indicate the seating plan (or lack thereof!). You can even write out a compact version of your love story by listing important dates (i.e., first met, first date, first kiss, said yes, saying I do!).
Our schoolroom style chalkboard is a charming choice for vintage brides.
Directional Signage: use chalkboards to keep the ceremony and reception flowing. Pointed chalkboard signs can direct guests to important entertainment features like the dance floor or photo booth. Chalkboard lettering can also be a discreet way to point guests to necessities like restrooms or parking facilities.
Drink Menu: clue guests in on the bar situation with a chalkboard featuring your signature cocktail or listing the wine/beer selection. Not having a full bar? No worries—chalkboards still make a lovely display for tea or water. Make it personal with verbiage that fits your theme (i.e. Wet your whistle!). Our event rentals team loves assisting with Dallas wedding chalkboards personalization, so don’t hesitate to ask for help.
Dessert Menu: the dessert table always gets a lot of attention at weddings… guests will be eyeing your delectable cake all night long. Make the dessert display one to remember with a customized chalkboard sign detailing sweet treats or the cake/icing flavor.
Our double-sided chalkboard looks flawless from every angle.
Table Numbers: A small dose of chalkboard goes a long way in details as sweet as handlettered table numbers. Have your calligrapher write out each number, or even add an illustrated flourish befitting your theme (like an elegant swash, nature-inspired arrows, or boho-style branches).
Add a pop of color with painted frames for a brighter look.
Placecards: You can even use chalkboards (in miniature form) at each place setting as place cards or escort cards. Tie a tiny lettered chalkboard around a napkin with twine, or place one above each guest’s plate. You’ll be sure to make a memorable impact with attention to detail!
Sweet Details: Last but not least, do a little brainstorming of your own. A completely personalized touch is our favorite way to incorporate chalkboard details into any wedding. Make the chalkboard trend your own with sweet customized details, whether it’s “Mr. and Mrs.” decking your sweetheart table or chalkboard tags holding your send-off streamers.
A simple Mr. and Mrs. go a long way in adding charm to your event.
The key to an outstanding chalkboard is often an outstanding calligrapher. Before you jump on the chalkboard trend, do your research to find a professional letterer whose style matches your own. Some calligraphers embrace elegantly modern abstract loops, while others create a more down-to-earth handwritten feel. Scoping out the lettering professionals beforehand is the true key to making your chalkboard signage feel cohesive with your wedding theme, and completely personal.
