We have recently posted "Seating Plan 101" all you need to know about preparing a seating plan for your wedidng.
If you are planning on having a seating plan at your wedding you will need place card holders.
First if all for you who don't know what "Place Card Holders" are:
Basically they are cards which your guests will be taking to know where they will be sitting.
Now you have 2 options when it comes to placing these cards:
#1 you can place the cards at the entrance, written on each card is a table number for each guest to sit at according to how you've arranged the seating plan. (You will need an usher to stand at the table to help guests know where to sit.)
#2 you can have the names of your guests printed out on the cards, which are placed in front of each seat.
If you're planning on having a seating plan at your wedding it’s a nice idea to present the place card holders in a creative way! Why? Because this is the first impression your guests get of your wedding!
Here are a few creative and fun ideas that we like:
Oranges: Or any fruit of your choice can be used as a card holder! Fruits such as Orange, Lemons, and Apples are easier to deal with, this fits perfectly in a Citrus Wedding Theme and Coral & Turquoise Wedding theme.
Wine Bottle Corks: These bottle corks are easy to make and look nice on the table!
Keep it simple: Looking for something simpler? Try folding the cards in half to make them stand alone.
Keys: Looking for something more vintage? Attach the cards to old keys to give a vintage touch.
Sea Shells: If you're planning a summer wedding, a beach wedding, or just a beach theme wedding? Seashells are the perfect choice, they're fun and cute.
Tree Card Holder:Use the cards as decorations by hanging them on a small tree or branches.
Not sure if any of these ideas fit your personality or wedding style? Well, when it comes to card holders, anything goes! Get creative, the sky is the limit!
