On the front of the wedding invitation, the bride and groom’s names feature. On one of the front flaps, there is room for a beautiful quote: “Celebrate true love | Feel Joy | Eat, drink, dance”.  On the opposite side, the wedding date makes an appearance.

When guests open the chalkboard wedding invitation, they are greeted with a modern chalkboard style of invitation, with a variety of vintage fonts. There’s room for a quote to introduce the couple, the parent’s names, guest names, and all the important details of where and when.

The invitation is double-sided, with RSVP details included on the reverse. This couple included a matching information card with details on a BBQ the next day, a map to Grandview Gardens, and transportation information.

The bride and groom closed their wedding invitation with a simple length of twine, however you can leave it bare, or pair with a strip of burlap with a bellyband to create a showstopping statement.

A kraft envelope finishes off the package wonderfully.

A chalkboard vintage wedding brief

Holly and Matt married early January at the gorgeous Grandview Gardens, Outram. They were planning a beautiful wedding with a vintage touch, in keeping with the venue’s style. We met one evening and settled on a chalkboard style wedding invitation suite.

Sentimental invitations for a special wedding day

Inside we were able to include a beautiful quote “two lives… two hearts… joined together in friendship, united forever in love”. On the reverse of the invitation we included RSVP info, and an accompanying information card included details on transportation, registry information, and a map to help guests navigate their own way out to Grandview Gardens.

Wedding day stationery: order of service poster

For the big day itself, Holly and Matt had the talented O’Neill Photographics on hand to document the day. I helped out with a few bits and bobs too. Here’s a photo of the chalkboard inspired order of service/wedding program that I designed.

I love the little details and personality here:


Chalkboard seating plan

For the evening’s events, I put together a blackboard seating plan, which also included details on the next day BBQ.   The clever groom made the frames himself.

Table numbers and beautiful flowers

The table settings were finished off with a chalkboard style table number, resting on a wee wooden easel. Each table number highlighted a special year in this couple’s life. Love this idea! Some of the other years featured included their children’s births, the year they met, their births, and their parent’s marriages.

Those incredible flowers were done by Carley Jones Floral Design. So elegant!

Holly & Matt’s wedding photographer, Craig O’Neill, did a fantastic job documenting the day, and for more pictures please visit his website. Congratulations Matt and Holly, I loved working with you guys!
