Wedding Place Card Ideas
Many details go into planning a wedding, or any event. Most events, especially weddings, require a well thought-out seating arrangement for guests. Once the plan is set, there is a task of finding the right place cards and place card holders to accent the tables.
Wedding place cards and place card holders serve an important function. They escort your guests to their tables and their seats. But just because they are functional doesn't mean they can't also be decorative and even striking. They are a perfect opportunity to impress guests with your attention to detail.
There are various types of place cards and place card holders. Place cards can either come as flat cards or tent-style cards. Flat cards are usually paired with a place card holder while tent-style cards stand on their own. Many brides choose printer friendly place cards that come on a sheet that you can format and print at home. They come in many designs and colors from elegant, silver bordered place cards to romantic designs with hearts or flowers. The trick, needless to say, is to choose the most appropriate design for your theme.
Flat place cards when paired with a place card holder, does double duty. The place card holder also serves as the wedding favor. Guests can take them home and use them as photo holders afterwards. Place card holders can come in every imaginable shape and design. Whatever the theme, there's almost always a perfect place card holder to match. A maple leaf place card holder is perfect for fall wedding, while snowflake place card holders match a winter themed wedding. For Asian themed weddings, the mini silver fortune cookie place card holder is an all time favorite and for destination themed weddings, a mini Eiffel Tower place card holder does the trick.
Place card holders can be decorative pieces that your guests can actually take home as favors. Even more creative and practical place card holders include luggage tags and picture frames which can hold cards personalized for your table settings. These are all great ideas to keep in mind. When it comes to creative wedding planning, no detail is too small.
