Ideas For Your Wedding Place Cards
Paperia | September 2015
Wedding place cards have come a long way from the traditional paper fold-over cards you could find holding your seat at many wedding tables. Although many people still choose to use place cards, there are many unique and creative substitutes you could use. Here are some ideas if you’re in the market for place cards that make a statement.
Writing your guests’ names on a doily and placing them under a clear plate is a beautiful and easy place card setting. There won’t be any extra room on the table being taken up and it’s an inexpensive alternative to place cards.
If you’re a DIY lover, try out these adorable chalkboard place cards made from small log rounds cut in half. All you need in addition to the logs is some chalkboard paint and a white paint marker to create a unique and rustic place setting your guests will love.
A simple substitute for place cards are tags that you can either place on top of the table settings or tie to a napkin or utensil holder. They’re easy to make and if you’re looking for a way to spruce them up a bit, consider adding a sprig of greens.
A fun way to showcase your guests names is by propping them on some sort of figurine. If you’re having a holiday wedding, think about getting small toy reindeers and spray painting them gold. Get any sort of tag and attach it to their antlers.
If you’re having an outdoor wedding, using rocks with some twine is a great alternative to place cards. They’re natural and lovely with a simple white name painted on.
A fabulous way to get place cards off the table for a bit of extra space is by attaching them with a small clothespin to an empty glass. It’s a way to add a bit of a twist to traditional place cards.
For you wine lovers, start saving those corks (you needed another excuse to buy more wine, right?)! Using any place card you’d like, make a slit in the cork and attach the card.
No matter if you decide to go with paper place cards or something different all together, be as creative or as traditional as you want. There’s no wrong way to make place cards, so have fun with it!
