18 Cute & Creative Ways to Display Wedding Place Cards

If you’re all about the personal touch, wedding place cards are a great way to go that extra mile and have some fun with your table settings while you’re at it! They’re a good bit of work so they’re not for everyone (the casual, sit where you like approach is super popular too and can bring a lovely laid back feel to the day) but if you are having designated seating, there are some fab ways to let guests know which seat is theirs. You can keep things simple and use pretty patterned or coloured paper (we love the gorge watercolour wash below), include fun details like buttons or glitter or opt for beautiful scripts like calligraphy. Or if you’re looking to get uber creative, you can make a bit of a focal point out of your place cards and use everything from wine corks and pine cones to pebbles to display your cards or have fun little flags guests can wave about for the camera. Check out 18 of our favourites below including vintage teacups with personalised tags and Polaroid pics of each guest…
