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 general guideline, wedding place cards should be large enough for guests to easily locate their assigned seat at the table, but not so big that they appear awkward among the tableware, cutlery, dishes, and other decorations. At Vintage Prints, our name cards are tented for improved readability and measure approximately 9 x 3.3 cm when folded.
While it may be tempting to wait until all guests have responded to their RSVPs before ordering place cards, this approach might be cutting it too close to your big day. After all, you wouldn't want to find yourself anxiously checking tracking numbers just a week before your wedding. By ordering place cards at the same time as your other On the Day Stationery, you can also save on shipping costs.
To keep things simple and avoid any confusion with duplicate names, it's best to write both the individual's first and last names on your wedding place cards. While including titles is not necessary, it can be a nice touch to indicate the person's role for the day, such as "Mother of the Bride" or "Bridesmaid". For more intimate celebrations, you may consider using the familiar family term by which your relative is known, such as "Nana" or "Gramps", adding a personal and endearing touch. Additionally, always make an effort to find out the names of your guests' plus-ones instead of using generic labels, so they feel included in the special day as well.
Handwriting your guests' names adds an extra level of uniqueness and charm to your place cards. However, it's important to ensure that the text is clear and legible, even in dim lighting or when the party gets started. Alternatively, if you prefer to save yourself the hassle, you can choose from our wide range of fonts, and Vintage Prints will take care of the hard work for you.
If you want to include your guests' menu choices on the wedding place cards, it's a fantastic idea! This will make things easier for your catering staff, ensuring that meals are served swiftly and correctly. You can opt for simple symbols or initials to denote different dishes or dietary requirements. For example, "V" could represent a vegan option, while "GF" could signify a gluten-free meal. Remember to choose a symbol that's clear and easy-to-understand to avoid any potential confusion.
We offer an expanded version of our Place Cards, providing more space for your guests' menu choices. Our Menu Place Cards are versatile, suitable for both formal and casual occasions, and add an elegant touch to your special day. They come in a variety of card stocks, and you can choose between flat or folded options. With our vast collection of fonts and customizable colour schemes, you can select the perfect combination that complements your wedding theme. You even have the option to have your own design printed!
By incorporating menu choices into your Place Cards, you are sure to impress your guests and make them feel even more included in the celebration. No matter the style you choose for your wedding place cards, adding a handwritten touch or a meaningful inscription will demonstrate an extra level of attention to detail. Your guests will undoubtedly appreciate the thought and sentiment behind it. If you require assistance with the design process, we are here to help!
Menu place cards are more than just a decorative element on your wedding day. They serve practical purposes, significantly streamlining the food service process. By providing specifics on each guest's menu choice, the catering staff can easily distinguish between different dietary requirements and preferences. This implementation eliminates any guesswork or confusion, ensuring that each guest receives the correct meal swiftly and efficiently.
Not only do Menu Place Cards ease the logistical aspects of serving a large gathering, but they also serve as a helpful reminder to your guests about the delicious choices they made. Because let's face it, memories can fade between receiving your gorgeous Wedding Invitation in the post and RSVPing with their menu selections. We wouldn't want anyone accidentally devouring someone else's dish and having that "Oops!" moment later on, right? With these thoughtful place cards, your guests will be delighted to find their preferred dishes beautifully displayed, ensuring a seamless and laughter-filled dining experience for all. Cheers to that!
