Everyone that is planning a wedding has a budget to stick to and when “one more thing” adds to their list, it can be daunting. In recent years, couples have been opting to have their favors as their place cards for their guests. It can make it so much more interactive for the guests during cocktail hour, they can showcase your personality, something you love or wedding theme, and it is something personalized for them to take home!

Our friends at Blackstone Caterers have helped us with this topic by providing the following examples of new and upcoming “place cards”;

Champagne Wall: Each guest can have their own champagne for a toast at their table and they can keep their ‘place card’!

Gold Animals: Each place card can be slipped into a unique animal for each guest and can be displayed on a table!

Tea Cups: Displaying vintage tea cups with flowers in them and a tag attached can escort guests to their seats and even add a pop to each guest table when they bring them to their seats!

Ornament: If your wedding is around the holiday, or you just love Christmas, having an unique ornament for your wedding theme (like an oyster!) is a great keepsake and escort card for guests!

Compass: Navigate your guests to their seats (literally!) and have something they can display in their home!

That’s all for now! For all of your wedding and special event questions and needs, contact Blackstone Caterers!
