I have always loved weddings, and I love them even more now that I have seen how liquid chalk markers are being used these days! And how I wish I had used them when I had my own wedding back when.
Weddings nowadays are getting more creative. In social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, we are seeing couples personalize their wedding days in ever more inventive ways. There are different styles that incorporate the bride's and groom’s personalities, including their fun sides!
Best of all, being inventive does not always mean spending a lot of money and doing a lot of work. Which is why, as a DIY fanatic, I found myself drawn to chalkboard wedding themes, and what came to my mind first was a Chalkboard Wedding Photo Booth!
A Chalkboard Wedding Photo Booth Features a Personalized Touch
Back in the olden days of the 20th century, wedding signs and displays with the couple's names could only be created by a professional. Couples would need to take the time to go to a print shop, and it cost them a pretty penny, too! Now, wedding decorations are getting simpler and less expensive. One example is a chalkboard wedding theme. This is a great opportunity for the couple to showcase their creativity and style in bold, bright colors, without the difficulty and expense of hiring a professional designer!
If you’re planning on having a chalkboard wedding, you can use liquid chalk markers to announce the happy couple's names, direct people to the ceremony or create something unexpected. For example, you can go for a chalkboard wedding photo booth!
Chalkboard "Instant Photo" Wedding Photobooth
To create a quirky photo booth experience your guests will never forget, all you need is a cardboard cutout in the shape of an old-style instant photograph's borders. Make sure a group of two to five people can fit their faces inside the square. That classic white border is such a novel idea that everyone in the event will surely know it’s a fabulous Instagram opportunity!
Writing Using Chalkboard Markers
To mark the occasion, the couple’s names can be written down at the bottom of the photo border with the date included. What’s great about this project is that it is simple and won't add one ounce of stress to the hectic work of planning the big day. The frame takes only minutes to make and you can use liquid chalk markers to write the text in any style and color. If you are going for an elegant look, writing in cursive is a good start. If you're worried about making a mistake, cover the area where you want to write with chalkboard contact paper. That way, once it dries, the ink will easily erase with a damp cloth, so if you marker goes astray, there is always a chance to correct it!
Design Anything and Everything with Liquid Chalk Markers
Don’t stop there, though! If you think the white borders of the chalkboard wedding photo booth need more color and style, you have the freedom to add any design you can dream up. Using liquid chalk markers means that you can write on a lot of other surfaces as well. Aside from cardboard, you could also use natural and light-weight wood for the photo frame. Another great idea is having your friends and guests write or draw on the border.
Chalkboard Graffiti Wall

It not only shows the happy couple's creative side, but also encourages the guests to leave heart-warming and thoughtful messages for the bride and groom.

You can never go wrong with them and they are easy on the budget — which means more spending money for your honeymoon! So start creating your own chalkboard wedding photo booth for your special day.
