A wedding must have a welcome sign. This welcomes your guests and also has information about your day. We choose this one for its simple classic styling but cool retro frame. It includes the crucial information the bride and grooms name and the date. Although the guests will know the date, it is important for that all introduction photo in your album. We also think the eat,drink and be married is a very cute touch.
3. Choose a Seat
Gone are the days of ushers and sitting the brides family one side and grooms family on the other. This sign makes people feel at ease and know they can sit anywhere they like. You may still want to reserve the first few rows for elderly guests and immediate family.
4. Here Comes The Bride
What a beautiful heart shaped sign. And what chalkboard wedding would be complete with out a here comes the bride sign.
5. Seating Plan
Now that the ceremony is over let's head to the reception. You must have a seating plan for your guests to know what table to go to. A frames chalkboard is a beautiful addition to an important part of the wedding.

If you have chosen a set menu and there are choices to be made it pays to give your guests the choices early so they have time to make up their mind. This will make taking orders go far more smoothly. Why not put the menu on a chalkboard so it can be seen when entering the reception.

We think the Jenga idea is a cool twist on the guest book. We love the sign used here too. It is a painted silver tray.
To get a sense of conformity choose the same kind of frame for all your chalkboards and get different sizes. You can achieve all these designs with a set of 4 Crafty Croc White Chalk Markers or if you want a bit of color the soon to be released celebration pack.
