Chalkboard Menus

Instead of doing individual menus at each guest’s place setting, it’s sometimes fun to do a big wooden sign or chalkboard.

For a big wedding, we suggest going oversized and also propping the sign by the entrance to the dinner area so everyone has a chance to see it. For a more intimate wedding, the sign can be near the tables.

If you hire a professional calligrapher to make the sign, it won’t necessarily be less expensive than individual menus (even though it’s just one menu). However, if you’ve got good handwriting and a creative streak this can be a great DIY project that’s very affordable. You can even find chalkboard material in convenient sizes at hardware stores like Home Depot.

Here’s an example of a large chalkboard menu from a recent wedding at Scribe Winery:
