In today’s blog post we are going to share our favourite unique name place card setting ideas.
Your name place cards also referred to as place cards or name cards are a key part of your on-the-day wedding stationery.
Name cards direct guests where to seat at your tablescape and can play a large role in designing your wedding tablescape. We are a little obsessed with beautiful name cards and can swoon over new designs all day long.
If you are hosting a very formal dinner it’s critical you have individual place cards to direct guests where to seat at the table. Many couples are now choosing to design an escort table, which tells guests their table number or table name instead of a traditional table plan.
When choosing your name cards or place cards the options are endless. We would highly recommend sticking to a similar design to compliment your On the Day wedding stationery, however don’t be scared to opt for something truly bespoke and unique. Have some fun with your name cards and get as creative as you wish! Your name cards are there to be personalised and create something bespoke!
We love designing name cards that can be used as wedding favour too. Such designs include our Personalised Baubles (perfect for those Christmas weddings and events!), Coasters and Perspex Place Cards. These work as beautiful wedding favours and place cards combined and are a perfect keepsake for your wedding guests.
Here’s a selection of our favourite place cards:

P.S. Don’t forget! Reserved seating tags for immediate family and friends during your wedding ceremony.
