If you have opted to have a seating plan for your wedding (more on the pluses and minuses of that in a future blog!), one of the biggest perks from the perspective of styling is the opportunity to create name cards for your guests to identify their seat.
Today we round up our Top 5 favourite ideas from across the web to get your creative juices flowing!
Weddings that rock - Literally!
Designing individualised name cards can be a pricey game – but not necessarily! If you are going for a beachy seaside theme, why not hand paint some pebbles from the beach with your guest’s names? They look fab, giving your day a surfy, care-free vibe. We loved these ones in particular as they reminded us of Anne and Mike’s wedding we shot last year in Cornwall.
We can guarantee that there will be no clean-up required at the end of the night with these edible place cards! If you are a keen baker, why not bake your guests a little treat before the wedding breakfast and use fab edible paper so they double-up as name cards?
We simply love these customized paper butterflies designed to sit neatly on your guests wine glasses – such a creative idea, and if you get the shape right you could even design and print these at home yourself!
Chopped up anything from your garden recently? If so, these could be a perfect addition to a rustic wedding. Simply made by taking chopped wood and sawing a small slit in them, you can then print small cards with your guests names to slot into them. What we love about these is that after your wedding they can then double-u as post or business card holders in the home or office!
We love this idea of giving guests a tiny plant to take home with them and watch grow as time passes – if your friends and family are keen gardeners, these are just a perfect reminder for your special day. Alternatively, if your guests are keen cooks, why not go for fragrant herbs such as basil or rosemary to give every dish a taste of your happiness!
