Place Cards - IDEAS NEEDED! Please!

Recommended Posts

I guess I wasn't thinking about this (not sure why) but it just came to me that I need some type of Place Cards for my reception. I am having 38 guests and their are 3 types of plated dinners being served (some are having fish vs. beef vs. kids meal.) I am going to have one long table with all my guests at it and I want to be sure that people know where to sit and make sure that Scott and I get to sit by the fun people (only slightly kidding!)

 

I want the place cards to be cute (of course) and I wouldn't mind making them myself but need to get to work on them since I have only 23 days until I will be on a plane to CABO! OMG! HELP with some ideas girls! grouphug.gif

Do you have a "theme" about your wedding? I can't remember. If I was going to do place cards, I was going to do small starfish on a string, that would also have their names on them, then the starfish could have become an Christmas ornament on their trees or something.

 

I can help you think of something, if you can remind me a little bit about your day.

We really don't have a theme....it is all my family who are attending the wedding. Our table for the reception is going to have black table linens with a fushia runner and the flowers are going to fushia lillys. We made the picture frame / candle centerpieces. We are also using orange as an accent color. I have been looking around the forum and I like the votive place card holders that someone said they got at michaels or some craft store....but ideas would be awesome! Thanks!

hmm, what about getting different color ribbon for each type of dinner they are having and just writing their name on the ribbon, that's what I am thinking of doing for my rehearsal...I think its simple and will look nice.

I am also going to use the starfish and tie a ribbon w/ a tag on it. I think the tag will have their name on it and I also thought about having the tags color coated based on their meal so it's easy for the waiters.

 

I like the idea of having it become a christmas ornament!! :)

I was going to use sand dollars. Put their name on the front of the sand dollar, and then ask them to write a message on the back of the sd. You will then have nice keepsake from your guests.

I wanted to inject a little bit of "us" in small ways throughout the wedding--- in a way that wouldn't be overwhelming, but would show our interests and sense of humor. Frank plays the guitar, so I found keychains of miniature guitars that I want to use...

Ok I'm going to give you the boring - no work version since that's what I ended up doing! hee hee hee...

 

From Michaels I bought:

 

Placecards which had a gold border

Gold calligraphy pens

gedrber daisy stickers (or red, orange and yellow gerbers - which are our flowers but then have many many other stickers that are nice and from photographs so they don't seem childish)

 

And I just calligraphies everyone's name on the outside and added a sticker to the left hand side. I'm going to write their table numbers on the inside but since you are only doing one table you could just write their meal on the inside instead. Again I know this is super uncreative and boring but just incase you didn't want a whole DIY project - this can work!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
