Have you thought at all about the place cards for your wedding reception? This may seem like a very small detail, but think about this. When you arrive to a wedding reception, what is the first thing YOU look for? Where you’re going to sit, right?? So, do you think this is a pretty important aspect of the reception? YES!
We’ve had some really creative place cards at our weddings recently. Take a look at these ideas:
RUSTIC MEETS SHABBY CHIC — We love what Amanda and Andrew did with their place cards. The bride lovingly hand wrote each name on bright yellow card stock draped over a piece of twine strung inside a rustic picture frame. Miniature clothespins helped to keep them attached, while also adding an aesthetic touch.
WEDDING COLORS AND WINE CORKS — Kandice and Joe recruited a lot of friends over the past year to give them their wine corks. They carefully sliced the side of each one and then we set in the pre-printed cards. Each name was mounted on navy card stock for another pop of their wedding colors.
SENTIMENTALITY AND SIMPLICITY — Michelle and Marcus decided to keep it simple on elegant white printed cards in a calligraphy font. Their creativity and sentimentality came out in the picture display of Michelle’s parents from their wedding day many years prior. The frame is also a vintage piece and very special piece to the family.
DOUBLE DUTY PLACE CARD AND FAVOR — Katie and Andrew intertwined their wedding colors, seating placement AND a favor all in one! They hand wrote each name and table number and then mounted each to designer paper. The cards were then slid into a clear plastic bookmark holder which also doubled as a place to store the photo booth pictures! The ribbon ties on the ends proudly displayed their wedding colors. What a GREAT favor idea that will be used by many!
