Make sure your big day runs smoothly by organising your reception tables with our unique handmade wedding place cards. To ensure a perfect match with the rest of your stationery, you can also customise and tweak any element of our bespoke name cards, from the font to the design.
Feeling creative? Choose to have your wedding place cards blank so you can handwrite your loved one's names yourself or let us do the hard work and type them on your behalf using our wide range of fonts. We print all of our place cards for weddings on top-quality, super-sturdy card (we don't do flimsy!) and send them pre-creased to make folding easy.
Although wedding place cards serve a functional purpose in guiding guests to their seats, they also enhance your theme and add a final flourish to your reception's table decor. Lovingly handmade in the UK, we have a name card style to suit every occasion, from botanical to bohemian. Plus, every item in our wedding stationery collection is customisable, making it unique to your special day. All you need to do is select the design you've fallen in love with, choose from our selection of luxury cards and send us the names of those joining your special celebration — we'll do the rest!
As a rule of thumb, place cards for weddings need to be large enough so an individual can spot their place at the table, but not so big that they sit awkwardly amongst the glassware, cutlery, crockery, and other decorations. At Vintage Prints, our name cards are tented to make them easier to read and measure approximately 9 x 3.3 cm when folded.
Although it can be tempting to leave ordering place cards until every guest has returned their RSVP, this might be cutting it too fine — after all, you don't want to be sitting around nervously checking tracking numbers a week before your big day. And, if you buy them at the same time you order your wedding save the dates, invitations and other stationery, you'll also save money on shipping.
Make things simple by writing both the individual's first and last names on your wedding place cards, as this avoids any confusion with duplicate names. Don't feel like you need to go overly formal and include titles, although it might be nice to include the person’s role for the day such as Mother of the Bride or Bridesmaid. For smaller celebrations, you might want to consider writing the family term you know your relative by, like "Nana" or "Gramps", as this adds a lovely, personal touch. And always find out the names of your guests’ plus-ones, instead of just putting a generic label, so they feel part of the day, too.
Handwriting your guests’ names makes your place cards even more special and unique, although, do remember the text needs to be clear and legible, so people can read them even when the lights go down and the disco gets started. Or, if you would sooner save yourself the hassle, choose from our wide range of fonts and Vintage Prints will do the hard work for you. .
Your wedding place cards are guaranteed to become a wonderful memento your guests will want to take home and treasure, so why not get the whole look with our matching, customisable wedding stationery collections?
