Wedding Place Cards To Make Your Guests Smile


by IMAGE
24th Aug 2016

It’s all in the detail when it comes to impressing your guests. Unique and interesting place cards are a wonderful way to delight and charm your friends and family, as well as providing a practical service in allocating seating.

Borrow a little inspiration from the place cards below. These would be ideal for a late summer wedding and could be adapted to any theme. Consider compasses for a nautical or outdoorsy feel, or small golden animals for a country setting.

There are DIY options amongst them, starting from very simple burlap material wound into heart’shapes, to colourful origami.

Take the opportunity to add those final details to your tables – if the holders are particularly lovely, they could also double as wedding favours!
