If you’re a bride that is aiming to make your wedding unique, then plain or traditional place cards may not be for you. If you have a certain style or theme in mind, choose a place card option that will compliment your look. Here are a few alternatives that are not only distinctive, but can double as keepsakes or décor.
Usually when wedding guests arrive at a reception their first stop is at the bar. Save them a trip and let the champagne guide guests to their seats! Have their names written on decorative paper attached to stirrers and placed in champagne flutes, or attach a crafty name tag to mini champagne bottles. Everyone will be ready to toast the happy couple as you arrive at the reception.
As an alternative to the mason jar trend, this is a great idea for an art-deco inspired wedding or someone with an eclectic style. The possibilities are endless! Mix and match vintage bottles, bud vases, apothecary jars, or perfume bottles. Personalize each with guests’ names so they can have a keepsake from your special day.
If you’re having a beach wedding, this option will be gorgeous paired with the sand and ocean waves. Sea glass is available in different shapes, sizes, and hues. The gorgeous color combinations will add a touch of uniqueness to your wedding. Have guests’ names engraved or written in a beautiful font for an elegant look.
Potted Succulents or Herbs
Perfect for an indoor or outdoor wedding, this idea creates a rustic and earthy feel that can double as centerpiece décor. Pick out decorative pots that add pops of color and texture, such as metallic or bark. Use twine to attach a name card to each.
