As promised, I’m sharing the chalkboard designs I created for my brother’s rustic chic wedding decor (see the full post with decorating ideas here) with you today…. for free!
When I got married 12 (gasp!) years ago, nobody was doing fun, alternative things like this… We had a little white guest book that only 1/2 our guests actually signed. I’m not complaining because I wouldn’t change a thing about my wedding… but I sure do think these creative guest book ideas are a fabulous alternative!
First up: a polaroid station in lieu of a guest book. We used this for the rehearsal dinner, but you could certainly do the same for a wedding.
Although I simply wrote on a chalkboard I had, I thought a simple printable might be useful: “snap it, shake it, sign it, hang it.” You can use this as a model for your own chalk art or print it and frame it. Just click on the image below to download. Please remember that these are for personal use only and are not to be sold in any form.
Next up: a “bucket list” in lieu of a guest book. My now sister-in-law found several examples of this that she shared with me before the wedding. Although I don’t have any pictures of the station I set up (as it was used at the actual wedding where I was too busy running around to play photographer), you can see the bucket I used here.
I cut up some pretty card stock and left it with pens and this bucket on this tray. Behind the tray was a giant chalkboard reading as follows:
A Bucket List
Bride & Groom
leave a note, a plan, an idea
but most importantly,
for us to complete in our lifetime.
And here is your free printable! Just click on the image below to download. Please remember that these are for personal use only and are not to be sold in any form.
