Place cards can add that special touch to your wedding day
Whether your wedding celebrations are big or small, formal or casual, personalised wedding place cards are a unique touch to add to the day.
Wedding stationery might be overlooked and thought of as not as important as other wedding day details, but it is with these perfect finishing touches that you can create the wedding of your dreams.
Imagine how impressed guests will be when, after watching the stunning ceremony and arriving at a wedding venue that takes their breath away, with tables that are decorated with beautiful flower bouquets and lovely tableware, they find a personalised place card with elegant lettering and a colour pallet and design that perfectly complements every other element of the wedding. It is the small details that can make your wedding perfect.
When you’re enjoying your special day, you don’t want to have any worries. Place cards make it easy for your guests at the reception to know where they’ll be sitting without having to try and sort it out on the night.
Details matter: get your wedding place cards just right
It’s important that your guests rsvp so you can plan all the details of the day, and if you’re planning to have place cards, then you don’t want to end up ordering more than you need for guests who aren’t coming. You will have already checked the spelling of everyone’s names when you sent out the wedding invitations, at least you should have, but it doesn’t hurt to double check the spelling to make sure there are no mistakes on your personalised place cards.
There are plenty of different aspects of the design of your place cards, from the colour pallets to the style of lettering. All of it can tie into your overall theme and match all your other Paperlust wedding stationary, whether you want rustic, classic, cute or modern. Our talented Australian designers can create something truly unique and extraordinary for your stationary.
Place card etiquette
When planning the wedding reception, it is worth giving some time to a seating plan. This might seem rather formal, but if you’re having a sit-down reception and intend to have place cards, then you’ll need to think about where everyone will be sitting.
The point of a seating plan is to ensure everyone will have a very good time, and that you don’t have any uncomfortable situations of people sitting with people they don’t know or worst case, that they don’t like. There is nothing more stressful than having to worry about people getting along on your wedding day, and it’s something that no bride should have to worry about.
Once you’ve got your wedding guest list and booked your wedding reception venue, you can start having a look at where your guests will be seated, whether it’s a small or big wedding, with long rows of tables, or lots of small round tables.
First, start with placing the wedding party altogether, then start to divide up the rest of the wedding guests by couples or family groups that you want to be seated together and then group together people that you know will have a good time together. If you do have any guests that don’t know anyone else - be considerate about seating them with people you think they’ll get along with, so they don’t feel uncomfortable.
You can have a bit of a play around with your seating plan, discuss it with your partner, but once you’ve decided on it be sure to write it down so that when you get to the venue, someone can make sure all the place cards are put in their right spots.
Give your guests a little piece of your wedding day
Place cards are something that your guests can also keep and take home with them after the wedding. Just like with your stunning Paperlust wedding invitations, your place cards are a special piece of your wedding day that your guests are sure to love, so why not let them take them home to treasure?
A place card is a lovely way to show your guests how special they all are to you; they’re a great personalised touch. Place cards can be taken home by guests and turned into a lovely memory of a beautiful day. Place cards from a wedding are something that can be kept in a photo album amongst pictures from the day, or another very good idea is to have them framed and then your loved ones can display the beautiful cards in their homes.
Place cards: not just for weddings
While a wedding is a distinct occasion that calls for the need of place cards, there are plenty other times of which they are a useful and lovely addition.
No matter the occasion, whether you are planning a birthday party, engagement party, baby shower or anniversary party, place cards are a small detail that can make a big difference. There are plenty of theme options, so you don’t need to choose one that is suited just for weddings, you are sure to find a unique design you love to suit any occasion and style.
Place cards are a great idea for professional events as well. For any businesses that are hosting a brunch or dinner event, something that involves lots of seating, place cards help to create a beautiful place setting and let all the guests know where their seat is for the occasion.
Wedding place cards are like accessories for an outfit; they give everything that added a bit of polish, so the finished result is perfect!
