Wedding Wednesday: Place Cards

Happy Wednesday, lovelies!  I am thrilled to be bringing another "Wedding Wednesday" post your way.  Today I wanted to share some beautiful place card inspiration.  Admittedly, my favorite elements of planning our day have been working with our planner on the paper products and invitation components and working on the overall aesthetic and look of the ceremony and dinner.  I suppose it makes sense since I love all aspects of design, but I also love the personal touch you can bring in through these pieces.  For instance, this couple added a natural element through utilizing petrified wood as place card holders:



For a whimsical touch, a clothes line displaying the place cards with clothes pins creates a makeshift banner and adds a splash of color:


I loved these map-themed escort cards!  They would be perfect for Sam and I's wedding, because most of his friends and family are coming from Australia:


Another idea to represent a destination wedding or to honor your guests who have traveled from far away is to make the place cards in the shape of luggage tags.  I also love the way this couple displayed the tags in a suitcase!



And you can't beat the classic look of place cards with calligraphy.  You can get creative with the color of ink/paper to incorporate your wedding colors!

Time is certainly flying by.

XOXO,

Sam
