There is nothing more personal than your own handwritten message. At home, I use my DIY skills to show my affection for my loved ones. I also use my liquid chalk markers to call their attention to something important. This morning, for instance, I informed my husband that the cookies I had baked and now had stored in the cookie jar are for my teething baby!
In the same way, you can personalize every guest's experience on your special day if you've chosen a chalkboard wedding theme.
Witty Chalkboard Drink Cover and “Don’t Take My Drink” Coasters
Have you ever been at a party and left your seat for a few seconds, only to find when you return that your drink has been taken away? You couldn't even be sure whether the waiter cleaned it up or some other guest took the glass by mistake! A neat trick is to have a chalkboard drink cover or coaster with a note written on it —something that says “Please Don't Take My Drink” or "Be Right Back!"
Guests Can Write Their Own Chalkboard Wedding Cover Notes
If you want your guests to have the fun opportunity to write their own drink cover notes, that works, too! Your guests can personalize their "Don't Take My Drink" signs by writing their names, or even fashion a sign to let the Maitre D' know that the drink needs refilling while they're out dancing. Leaving a few liquid chalk markers at the center of the table along with circular sheets of chalkboard contact paper is a great way to ignite your guests’ imaginations!
Plus, the chalkboard wedding coasters and covers make great chalkboard wedding favors.
Special Thank You Messages on Chalkboard Labeled Souvenirs
Another chalkboard wedding favor that guests can take home comes in the form of chalkboard-labeled souvenirs. I’ve attended parties and events with giveaways such as scented candles, jars filled with jam or boxes filled with goodies. And most of the time these favors’ containers can be reused!
Using liquid chalk markers, you can put a label on the chalkboard wedding favors. A simple “Thank you” or a special note for the guests on the jar or box will suffice. One wedding I attended offered guests scented candles in a jar. Each jar had a “Thank you” note written on it. Immediately when I got home, I erased the label clean and went to work with my liquid chalk markers. Using a blue colored marker to represent my comfort and serenity, I wrote, “My Bubble Bath Candle.”
If you’re a DIY enthusiast like me, you always bear in mind that the gift you are giving away will be re-purposed. That is why using liquid chalk markers for your chalkboard wedding offers so many possibilities!
Let your guests know how special their presence is by using liquid chalk markers on chalkboard wedding favors!
