15 Wonderful Ideas for your Wedding Place Cards
If you’re a fan of the ‘less is more’ approach, you’ll love the idea of creating simple wedding place cards. It’s how you decorate your place settings that will have the most impact. Team a chic calligraphy place card with a pretty blush napkin tied with a velvet ribbon. Simple, stylish and seriously effective.
If you’re dreaming of a destination wedding set on a beautiful beach, sea glass place cards are the perfect match for your wedding day. You can handwrite each guests’ name onto the glass and simply place on a white plate. Team with a light and fresh seaside-esque colour scheme and you’ve got yourself some stunning reception tables. Your guests may even take them home after the wedding as a keepsake of your special day.
From a rustic affair to a seaside celebration, driftwood can effortlessly create unique wedding place cards. This budget-friendly idea can be a fun DIY task for you and your hubby-to-be to organise before the big day.
If you’ve heard about Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, you’ll know that greenery has hit the wedding scene this year. We adore the idea of writing the names of each guests on leaves – this is something many guests won’t have seen before. For a tropical or botanical wedding theme, this is a fabulous finishing touch for your wedding tables.
Elegant, modern and oh-so-stylish, calligraphy has captured the heart of brides and grooms across the world. Your guests will adore wooden laser-cut calligraphy place cards.
Planning a modern industrial wedding theme? From an abandoned warehouse with exposed brick walls to vast loft spaces, industrial weddings hit the radar in 2016 and they’re here to stay. If you’re stuck for ideas on how to create the ultimate industrial wedding table, we love the thought of using Edison bulbs as wedding place cards. Team with copper metallic vases and terrariums for an extra edgy vibe.
There are no rules when it comes to your wedding place cards, and who say’s that can’t be tasty as well as stylish? Macarons, cupcakes or cookies all make for fabulous and delicious place cards. Your guests will enjoy munching on them during your reception, and they could even double-up as edible wedding favours.
For a boho-luxe wedding theme, feathers make a fabulous choice for your wedding place cards. Whether you opt for white feathers dipped in gold glitter or rustic brown feathers, they’ll look seriously gorgeous as part of your reception tables. Simply write the name of each guest on a little tag and tie it to the feather.
Sometimes the simplest wedding place settings look the most effective. If you’re creating a minimalist wedding theme, consider tying a sprig of foliage and a brown luggage tag with some pretty twine ribbon. This style of wedding place card fits the majority of wedding colour schemes and themes – from a country barn celebration to an English garden affair.
Marble and metallics are the perfect ingredients for a modern wedding theme. Marble coasters adorned with golden or copper calligraphy make gorgeous place settings for your guests. Team them with marble plates and gilded cutlery for a touch of glamour.
Add a dash of luxury to your wedding day by incorporating jewels into your place settings. Agate and geode pieces make unique place settings that are utterly beautiful. You can use geodes throughout your venue decor too – from agate backdrops to geode wedding favours, the options really are endless.
For couples swooning over the thought of a botanical or eco-friendly affair, why not create plant-based place cards? Little plant pots full of succulents, cacti or seeds are a wonderful choice for your place settings. They can easily be used as wedding favours too. Simply stick a mini flag into the soil and watch your guests ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’.
Tie a luggage tag with your guests’ names on them to a little trinket or treasure. From antique keys to lucky charms, your guests will adore receiving small gifts as their wedding place cards.
For a country garden or tea-party wedding theme, why not offer your guests small jars full of blooms as their wedding place cards. Your tables will look lovely covered in pretty posies and they can be used as alternative centrepieces.
If you’ve been keeping a close eye on the wedding trend radar, you’ll know that couples are beginning to incorporate perspex and acrylic details into their big days. From perspex table plans to stylish acrylic signage, they’re the perfect way to inject a modern vibe into your wedding theme. Plus, they make for fabulous wedding place cards for you and your guests.
