Wedding Sign-Palooza

chalkboard themed wedding invitation

A Sweet Repeat by Signazon.com

We’ve seen chalkboards and we’ve seen light up marquee signs, but never have we seen so many of both in one wedding! Get ready for Mallory and Jake’s wedding sign-palooza wedding at the OKC Farmer’s Market designed by Edith & Ethel’s and beautifully captured by Caroline Rentzel Photography. Stick around and see even more in the full gallery, get their full budget break down and hear a few wedding planning tips from Mallory.

When Jake and I got engaged, we knew we wanted a party filled with fun details for all of our family and friends to enjoy with us. Being the creative people that we are, we began immediately brainstorming what projects we wanted to accomplish for the big day.

With the help of our friends and families, and many craft nights later…our perfect day unfolded… well, perfectly. Looking back, I feel like our wedding describes my husband and me to a T…fun, creative, and quirky with lots of gold and glitter!

Save-the-dates are the first item your attendees receive. They hint at the style and feel of your wedding before you’ve even picked out your shoes. They motivate relatives, friends, co-workers and acquaintances to clear calendars and call up dates. Since they’re tasked with making your first impression, your save-the-dates deserve a gorgeous design and full-color, high-quality printing from Signazon.com. Over at their sister company Easybanners.com, you can create custom wedding banners which are a festive way to celebrate your engagement or congratulate loved ones on their decision to spend their lives together. From setting the mood to pointing guests in the right direction, customizable, a high-quality banner will make the moment even more magical.

I know that this is a preference: but we had our girls in different bridesmaids dresses. Most of them bought them at Dillard’s when the prom dresses were on sale, anywhere between $30 and $70.

Oh Snap! Are you ready for some chalkboard and marquee madness!

I own my own business, Zoe Lane Designs, where I paint wooden letters. I really wanted to incorporate my letters into the wedding and our own twist on the marquee lighting was the perfect addition. I’m still trying to figure out where in our house we can fit the giant 3 foot letters! Jake and I are not the only creative ones…my sister did all of our chalkboard lettering and a family friend did an outstanding job on all of our beautiful bouquets and ceremony flowers!

The venue didn’t have a defined entrance, so we really wanted to create our own. I showed Jake and my father in law a few pictures and gave them some doors that my mom and I had been collecting and they created the most awesome entryway that we painted white and gold, distressed. It also turned into the perfect backdrop for our cake table.

I purposely chose a space that we could get married in and have the reception. I wanted one space to decorate really well, as oppose to two semi decorated spaces.

Another project we tackled was the branches with hanging tassels. We bought rubber tree branches and spray painted them with gold spray paint and made about 1,000 tassels. We felt like it was a good way to make the 30ft ceilings not so daunting, as well as not cutting the eye lines of any of our guests.

For our wedding favors we bottled vanilla extract. We love to cook and bake together, so it was a perfect way to share our hobby with our guests.

Since we had a chalkboard invitation, we used chalkboards for all of our signs. I painted our giant letter S white and gold chevron to tie in with our table runners.

Tips:

1. My mom and I are collectors (hoarders some might say) so things like the doors and buffet table was ours. Use what you have!
2. My sister is a hair dresser and make up artist. Lucky me, I got her services for free.
3. We used our family friend to make the bouquets, so our cost was just the flowers and supplies: $600. (We way over ordered the flowers too, so I would say we could of easily spent $450-$500)
4. I make and sale those wooden letters, usually without lights. It was a cheap addition I made to make my wedding space more personal.
