Show guests to their seats in style with these wedding place card ideas. Place cards not only let your guests know where to sit, they help to decorate your tables and continue your wedding theme too.

 

Here’s a few favourite ideas, all of which would be suitable for a destination wedding – easy to source at your destination, or light enough to pack and take with you.

 

Fruit flavoured 

Bright and bold place settings can be a fruitful addition to a table.

Destination themed 

You must have a little map theme in there somewhere! Map print luggage tags or colourful flags of your favourite countries around the globe would make great name place settings for a destination wedding.

How much do you love the vintage themed ideas – especially the vintage keys?

Aren’t the little fabric buttons cute? They’d be great at a pretty, vintage-inspired wedding, especially if some of the guests don’t know each others names too well!

  1. I went to a wedding two weeks ago, and names were printed on a toy car – the same one that the bride and groom travelled in!
