Use chalk boards on your reception table to reserve spaces and entertain guests

By on Jul. 24th

Rob & Stacy's Steampunk weddingStacy and Rob placed chalkboards in fun shapes on their wedding tables. As someone who spent the last few years shooting weddings, I hadn't seen anything like that, so I was intrigued to see the idea behind the table chalkboards. Turns out, these little guys did many different things throughout the evening.

Early on in the wedding they used them to mark the tables that needed to be reserved for the wedding party.

During lulls in the reception it kept the kids, and adults alike, entertained.

Their guests ended up writing sweet messages to the bride and groom, which provided us (the photographers) with some really cute shots. These remind me of photo booth pics without actually having to set up a photo booth!
