How to display your "Love Story"?

I always like to think outside of the box, I've came across a great idea to display your Love Story at your wedding.
How about creating a Love story timeline on a chalk board. Its rustic, old-fashioned and your guests will see it when they walk in to your venue , and say "Awww how cute" as they read how it all began.

Here is a reasonable link where you can purchase a 24 x 36 chalkboard, or you can also use this chalkboard as a seating chart

The symbol of the Mehndi is derived from the Sanskrit word Mendhika. This symbolic representation is from the Hindu Vedic ritual that represents the outer and inner sun, which is the idea of “awakening the inner light”. Mehndi also known as henna in the western world.
