As you prepare your wedding, invitations you are probably also trying to figure out some of the other details like wedding place card ideas. Anyone can fold a piece of card stock and write a guests name and seating assignment on a place card, but what about those of us that want to be unique, memorable or different? Here are a couple of fun wedding place card ideas to display seating info for your reception or any other special event!
Creative Wedding Place Card Ideas & Tips
¢â,¬¢ Use scrapbook papers that coordinate with your wedding theme and colors as the main place card. You can mix and match many different patterns and prints to make a decoupage, creative look! Write your guests name and seating assignment either directly on the pattered paper or glue a solid, color square on top of the scrapbook paper.
¢â,¬¢ Use a single-hole puncher and coordinating ribbon and hang guests place cards on a tree or branches. If youre having a Christmas wedding, definitely use a Christmas tree!
¢â,¬¢ Set up a wall with numerous rows of string or rope and use clothes pins to clip the place cards to the rope for a fun, unique look! Extra touch create a sign to put above the display that says, “Thanks for hanging with us!”
¢â,¬¢ For a Spring or Summer wedding, use trays of bright, green grass and position the place cards into the grass in rows. You could find artificial grass at a craft store, or find the real thing at a green house! (Caution dont dig up your own yard!)
¢â,¬¢ Print your guests names and assignment on a personalized coaster. Many wedding websites and suppliers sell these. You could have your guests find their coaster first, and have the champagne and punch table directly next to it so they can put their place card to good use!
¢â,¬¢ For a Fall wedding, use small pumpkins or apples as your place card holders. Cut a slit in front of the stem and slide your place cards in the slit. Align the apples or pumpkins in rows and have your guests take it with them to their seats for the extra touch of autumn warmth.
¢â,¬¢ For the younger kids attending your reception, write their name and seating on a special balloon for them. They can tie it to their chairs during dinner and have something to play with once the fun begins!
