The Placement of Place Cards
Posted by 7gmcm in Our Blog, Uncategorized, Wedding 08 Apr 2015
Have you been to a wedding recently? What was the first (or one of the first) things you encountered? More than likely, it was the place card table. Now-a-days couples are nixing the receiving line at the reception, and opting to float from table to table after their meal. Which I think is awesome. But with the absence of the greeting line, the place card table has become your “greeter” on the front lines. So my suggestion…? Make it welcoming, and let it set the mood for your evening. There are a couple things to think about when deciding on place cards. First is function… they get your guests from the front door, to their table. Second… many times it signals to your servers what entrée they have selected. This is very important. The key or code you choose must be visible in dim light and from 3 feet away. Check with your event planner or the venue coordinator on their preferences. But a good venue will make your idea work with their needs too. Given that, the sky is the limit. While keeping the functionality you can theme them, make them unique, etc. You could even save money while killing two birds with one stone, and make them your favor! Like these cute jars with chalkboard hearts. They could go in anyone’s kitchen or office!
