Wedding Place Card Holders

Aug 5, 2008
Sometimes during the hustle and bustle of planning a wedding, small details can be overlooked that can lead to embarrassing moments. For instance, imagine the chaos that would ensue if you should forget the importance of place cards at the wedding reception. Even the smallest gathering of family and friends is made more pleasant when everyone can easily find their assigned seat. Using wedding place card holders are not only functional, but can easily be coordinated to reflect your wedding theme.

But for some, the whole idea behind assigned seating may not be clear; why not just let everyone sit where they want? Of course you could do that, but what happens when a couple wants to sit together but they cannot find two seats at the same table? Using place cards eliminates the situation from occurring; and the holder makes a prominent display which is impossible to miss.

Place cards serve another function: they show recognition and respect to your guest. It gives them an understanding of who is at their table and eases the introduction process for your guests who may not know each other. Many couples who use place card holders find that they can play the role of souvenir of the wedding for guests.

How do you choose this item? Start by looking at the overall theme or feeling of the wedding: what you would like your guest to remember most about the occasion? High glamour-style weddings might use a movie clapboard style or the fashion pink purse theme. Wedding themes that take their cue from nature like autumn weddings might use a leaf design or a wine yard motif. Weddings are family celebrations that include friends and associates in a most personal way. Choosing a design that reflects the couples love for each other is the essential idea, how you express it is up to you.

Are these types of wedding reception accessories expensive? It all depends on which design you choose; a custom design will cost more than a standard design that is personalized. There are enough sources online to choose from that the pricing is competitive and that's true even when you want a custom design. This wonderful complement to a wedding theme can be as unique as both of your personalities.

Designing the look of your wedding reception takes planning because although the newlyweds are the center of attraction, the focus now is on interaction. Your guests will be mingling and socializing amongst themselves and with you as well. The more thought you put into making the flow of activity enjoyable, the less chance there will be of interruptions occurring that can put a damper on the mood of the moment.

Seating arrangements should be spaced so that your guest have easy access to and from their table and lighting should be sufficient so that your wedding place card holder is easily visible from a few feet away. Color is also important; make sure that your guest's name is large and bold enough to be easily read.
