What you post on BDW can/does go all over the world too. When I was planning and googling ideas there was always BDW posts and pics in the searches :)

I has wed pics too. More people used FB. Hindsite for my crowd a hashtag may have worked better. The older folk used wed pics probably as lots aren't on FB a lot if at all. There is still people I haven't seen their pics 8 months later.

Oh I know this goes all over the world. Absolutely. But I'm a bit more careful about pics and so on that I post here and last names don't get put here. And my FB account is closed only to friends with some things locked for only me to see and I don't use tags. We've also asked the kids not to tag us in photos. If they want us to see them, email them to us. Doug uses Twitter. I've never been interested in it. The only reason I set up Wedpics is because there are only 4 people that are going to be there besides us so it will be easy to ask them if they take pictures to put them there so we can access them.

 

Technology has exploded just a little too much for my taste. We found out the sex of 2 of our grandchildren on FB and believe me, we read them the riot act. I know for all of the young people here and our kids it's all technology but it's a bit different for us. We still try to keep some of it out of our lives.

So I finally went out and bought a chalk pen with a michaels 50% off coupon! I'm not as good as @perianjay yet but it's a work in progress! Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1442181898.418271.jpg   472.48KB   11 downloads

Thanks @acw271011 & @Wafflesmom I think the one with our names needs a little more decorative detailing on it though. The countdown board will actually turn into our guestbook board to tell people what to do. I have one more small chalkboard that I'm
Not quite sure what to write on it yet. Any ideas??

Love your chalkboards!! They all look adorable. Where did you get the ones for your MR & MRS signs? I'm looking to craft a few of those, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

If you feel it looks a bit plain, maybe add some laurels or flowers around the sides of the text :)

How about some starfish? You've gone with a beach theme so would either drawing starfish or decorating it with shells work?

Ah! Good thinking @perianjay and @Wafflesmom! I will try something today!

Also @perianjay I got the tiny hanging chalkboards at michales a few months ago, they were on sale then (like $1.50). Not sure if they still have them. But I'd also check a dollarama because they have lots of chalkboards too.
