Place card holder ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need some ideas for place card holders! My colours are red and black and while I like the starfish idea, I am not sure that it will go with the theme.

Any ideas??

Because my ethnicity is mostly chinese, and my fiance's is mostly polish, we have a pair of wooden chopsticks with a name tag with the polish eagle on them as our place card holders! I wonder if anyone will "get" the joke. lol I think you could use almost anything for a place card holder.

 

I like the idea I've seen of the mini maracas with a name tag.

 

What's your theme?

My initial vision for our destination wedding, i invisioned: the beach, the water, the sand. nothing compares to that decoration. so i wanted ambiance.. So we're doing candles.. and lots of them!!

I'm using votive candles to double as placecards and decoration for the guest tables. I'm going to print their name on vellum and wrap it around the votive holders.

To use as escort cards, at the sign in table i purchased mini maraca's and i'll attach their name and table # to it.. I didn't feel safe having my guest walk around with lit candles to their tables. Knowing my luck, someone will light one of my aunt's hair on fire!

We're doing photo coasters as our wedding favour and doubling them as place cards. I'm printing up our guests names in a boarder and starfish graphic from our invites and sticking them in the coaster.

What about doing something like this but incorporating black and red on the cards. I think it would look super chic!

I think that I'm going to do something like this but with umbrellas that are fuschia and lime green:

Both ideas are from Martha Stewart.

OMG Mel I love those placesettings with the shells.

 

Jaimem I think you can use any idea that you like, just incorpoarte your colours onto the cards. You could use bright white starfish with red tags and names embossed in black. Or red ribbon on the white starfish with tags in black and white...

We purchased large scallop shells (like you use for baking) and are putting the guests names on the inside of them - we think it will look very elegant and are going to stand them up in shallow sandboxs at the sign in table. I like the mini marachi idea too!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
